I've been reading posts on this page for years and have quite thoroughly enjoyed it. But I've decided to join up and make my first post because lately the dribble coming out of some of the posters (not everyone) is horrendous, full of negativity. You may as well go and support parra while you're at it. It's not the Manly way. Time and time again every tiny opportunity you get you will lay your boot into the Penns, Bozo and Barrett (ffs give the bloke a chance, get behind him, he has a great opportunity to do something special and every coach starts as a rookie) The Penns pour their millions into the club we love and they want success like we all do. I've heard people say that they are intentionally running the club into the ground... Wow, just wow, ahahaha you need to lay off the crack pipe if that thought even comes to your mind. In case you didn't know about businesses usually when there is a change of ownership the sole owner will want things run their way and people in charge of different aspects, this is exactly what they are doing, from the top of management, coaching staff and players. So unless you're pooring your millions into the club you shouldn't be knocking them, give them a chance. They want us to stay at Brookie, they are trying everything they can and I'm confident they will be successful. It's just a shame the council want to be nazis. Gutherson was let go disappointingly but in all honesty the club did the right thing, the kid wants an opportunity to play first grade, he didn't want to linger in reserves down the pecking order. This is no different to us getting Parcell, Koroisau, etc... They weren't going to get a shot at their former club so they did the right thing and released them with us being lucky to snatch them. Also one last thing, people that have chosen to not renew their membership because of these things you really have no clue. Our club is nothing without us fans so we are the ones that will keep us at Brookie, by you not supporting us you're just making the club worthless and doing your part to not achieve success. Already signed up and got my memberships for next season! Next year is a fresh start, we have had arguably the greatest 10 year era of any rugby league team of all-time when you think about how close the competition is nowadays. So let's all get behind the players, Barrett and the club for 2016, and this can be the beginning of another great era! It's exciting times. Go the Sea Eagles!!
