My thoughts go out to him, what a terrible day for the bloke

Can't imagine what it must be like to be preparing for the biggest day of your coaching career and get the sad news of your mother passing

Huge effort for him to even turn up there tonight, the game of footy must have felt irrelevant and it would have been a blow to the players as well

That is one strong effort and I feel for the guy. I lost my mum at a young age and know how tough it is to deal with.

Says a lot about the kinda guy he is. Not many would be able to get back up from that. Condolences to his family.

I lost my own mum just over 4 months ago so on that side of things I know a little bit about what he's going through right now, as it seems do a few others on here.

As happy as I am about Manly winning and being in another GF, my condolences go out to Michael MacGuire and his family. Its something I wish none of us ever had/has to go through.

I felt sorry for him at the end of the game. Now I know the sad news I feel doubly sorry. A GF qualifier is a bad loss but losing your mum puts it in perspective. Condolences, thoughts and prayers are with you Michael.

Agree 100%. I lost my mum at 44 and it was still tough.

Felt very sorry for Michael. Puts a game of football into stark perspective.

I respect him for just being there tonight. Losing your mother is probably one of the worst things that can happen and takes along time to come to terms with. I truly feel for the guy he seems like a good bloke

yeah thats terrible to find out. Reminded me of when poor old Glen Hall had a stillborn baby on a GF qualifier and we got pumped.

the mood in the camp must have been flat. They started with so much emotion probably to win for their coach but couldnt maintain that for 80 minutes.

Condolences to Madge and his family.
