I hope I'm wrong but I think the Sea Eagles fans will receive more bad news before things settle down. Won't be surprised if it is announced that Des and possibly a player or two will leave before 2012 kicks off. I'm waiting in dread for these shock announcements. In saying that I have no connections or inside knowledge I'm just a fan. We'll all hate it and we'll hurt some more. But Manly can and will survive anything. Why the whole Des issue hurts so much for me is because this sort of thing hasn't happened at our club. Like most fans I support the Manly club, colours, players and anyone else who contributes good to our team. I think the club needs to get out and start some positive PR work for the sake of the fans that will be here regardless unlike money chasing players and coaches.
