The bears only claim to fame is all the LOLs provided in threads like this, some v funny comments
I wondered how long it would take the Bears to throw a dart at a map and start with .... pick me, pick me ..
Aged care facilities I guess, because the younger generation would not have heard of the Bears, unless they live in Burleigh.“Peter Vlandys says wherever he goes he says every third question from the punters is when are the Bears coming back.”
If this isn’t Buzz on the turps again the question must be asked - where the f*** is PVL going???
Not a chance in hell !would we lose ryan as a supporter?
Mate you think that's bad? Want to know what my Colorado Avalanche renamed Pepsi Center to?My friend stopped supporting Manly because they changed Brookvale to Lottoland
Not a chance in hell !
What players like Gift, Snake, Albert's did for me through some very dark times, I'll never forget. The memories and lifelong mates like Mata and Dan I've met through the club.
The relationship I built with Grant Mayer. The current relationship I have with particularly Mark Arthurson, but the Arthurson's (and the stories I've been told no-one would know - or believe haha).
Etc etc etc. Too many good points to list.
The Bears were always a team to support. The Sea Eagles were far more. We were a community. I've always said a main point of difference between the two teams - winning.
Manly did that. Bears hoped to.
I'm very much maroon and white blood. It's ironed on and imprinted. Once you're in the Eagles nest, you're in no matter what happens.
Why you'd single me out is strange though - there are many current fans (even ones who regularly post) who were original Bears, then Northern Eagles, then Sea Eagles fans. It never felt like changing teams to me..(maybe you just wanted people to ridicule me or make fun - and you may get your wish).
But I take my journey and experience with pride. It's lead me to many, many memories, great friends, and amazing nights / times with the boys (Doug, Dan, Mata, Pepsi, Byso, Canteen Worker, ManlyBacker, Las Vegas, wheel, chuckwood - so many more).
My missus has my instruction to bury me with my Sea Eagles flag, my AVS jersey and a Dungeons and Dragons Magic Item Compendium.
So bag away mate..someone called me an ex Bears wanker here the other day. I'll take that as a compliment. Thanks.
So what kind of responses were you expecting ? Like what did the question posed stand to achieve ? In your opinion of course?JFC - I wasn't bagging you, you're the only one I know who is a bears fan tis all.
relax, not everything has 500 layers of complex diverse meaning.
