    A couple more incidents like this and Gallop will know what it is like to be a Manly fan. Although I would guess that when no one likes him, he will care.

    Not directly on point but I have heard a number of people suggesting that continuing to air this issue is a) futile because Gallop will never apologise b) counterproductive because Brett (and Manly) needs to move forward.

    I think it is really important that the club and the fans have spoken out - and attracted a lot of support from sections of the media - because it is highlighting through the mass media that Brett did NOTHING wrong.

    One of the worst effects of the charges and the headlines is very simply that mud sticks. All the people who saw the headlines wouldn't necessarily have seen the not guilty verdict,and even those who did probably still assumed at least the was guilty of drunken misconduct - because he was punished for it by Gallop.

    Therefore I think the recent publicity is priceless because it has been defending his unfairly tarnished reputation. I think a lot of the public would now have had second thoughts about their assumptions, and this is helping to restore Brett's good name in a very real way.

    DAVID GALLOP should be forced out after all the mistakes he has made..He is no good for the game.

    Realise it's the Storm, but this was interesting in view of the NRL not meeting with Brett since he was cleared.
