There is a story doing the rounds, based on a 2UE report from John Gibbs on the Carlton Breakfast Show, that Michael Monaghan and an unamed senior player have been fined for taking holidays contrary to their playing contracts with Manly.

According to the report the Manly Captain did not attend the Club Presentation night but took a vacation instead, contrary to the conditions of the handbook supplied to players earlier in the season.

Amazingly some fans of the club are blaming Manly for singling him out and in doing so are reigniting the 'Monasgate - Do or Don't Sign' saga of the middle of the season. They are even ignorant supporters on the club's website forum claiming this is some sort of campaign to further undermine Monaghan, despite the fact that the club did not release this information to anyone and that management rather than the coaching staff would have been responsible for imposing the fine.

Bottom line is that the First Grade Captain was not even at the Club Presentation night, and has gone on a now 'infamous' holiday overseas with a departing reserve grade player and some 'mates' from another club. Hardly the behaviour of a player who 'bleeds for the club"!

Completey irresponsible for the Captain to miss the Club Presentation night. Sets a bad example.

Surely the club knew he was going overseas well before the event. If not there are serious problems within our club!

Who cares, IMO the club is trying to annoy him into walking out by the looks of things.

I am sure we could assist if the club wants us to.

The site has a good record of knowing the neames behind the unnamed.

Not on this occasion (yet anyway).

Who cared if Monas goes on holiday to Mexico, maybe we could get him arrested for pedestrian j walking, or knocking on a bottle of Tequila. .. anything that makes him miss the plane back!

Besides the awards night from all accounts was better for not hearing one of his motivational speeaches.
