    Soon I will be finishing as CEO of the Sea Eagles. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, our members, for your contribution to my time here.

    Regardless of how large or small the part each of us plays; be it as CEO, Coach, Player or Member; we are all merely guardians of Rugby league for our short moment in time. That's how history reflects us.

    2011 has already seen some terrific performances on the field, especially from our younger up-and-coming players. It is an exciting time to see our junior talent develop into stars of the future.

    Our members are vital to securing the strong future of the Sea Eagles. Making both an emotional and financial commitment to support your team through not only the highest of highs but also the losses is invaluable. Thank you for making that commitment.
    One of my biggest highlights has been the outstanding success of our Next Generation kid’s membership. Before its introduction we had just 170 kids under 9 as members. We now have over 3,500. Next Generation is just that- the Next Generation of loyal fans who will continue the Maroon and White tradition into our future.

    The bond I have formed with the Manly Sea Eagles during my involvement with the Club will stay with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for the part you have played in creating these wonderful memories.

    Never a question that your heart was totally with the club, Lowie, and that heart message flows through in your communications. Thanks especially for helping to heal the rifts. Best of luck with your health, life, family and friends.

    Strangely quiet thread. I wasnt necessarily a Lowie believer but credit where due. He was part of the new sponsorship arrangement so he deserves thanks for his input.

    All the best to the man, don't know him that well and as such haven't been a critic of him. He sure has a big heart for the Manly club!

    Says it all, really. Interest in club officials is usually limited to when they stuff up.
    When he was announced as CEO there was a huge amount written about concerns he would be a flop. Now, as you say, very quiet.

    I think what is keeping people away from this thread is the level of smugness radiating from within.

    Lowe might not have been every fans choice as CEO but it was much better having him and the stability that came with him, than to have the infighting of the last couple of years. His appointment saw an end to it all so for that we should be grateful. We will never know, but we may not be in such a strong position on the field if the infighting had continued.

    Couldn't agree more, he is also in the process of securing a major sponsor.

    Good riddance Lowe, thanks for nothing. If you hang you hat on giving away free membership to U9s, it says it all. [hr]
    Yes, what he did is focus warring parties on how diabolical and mediocre the future was if all they could agree on was a cab diver as CEO.
