    Manly's rivalry with NRL premiers Melbourne is one of the fiercest in the game, but coach Geoff Toovey says any suggestion the two clubs hate each other is crazy.

    "... Everyone hates us. (But Melbourne is) just another game for us." - Choc.
    Love this guy and his attitude about being Manly.

    It takes too much effort to really hate something/ someone.

    I love Geoff Toovey. He's is one of my favourite all time players. Tough as nails. But this time I think he's got it wrong.
    *shouts* "Hey Geoff. We DO hate Melbourne mate."

    and nothing would give me more satisfaction than to give them a towelling at AAMI Park.

    Wouldn't it be nice to be heading down there with a healthy roster to really give it to them after two losses instead of limping into town

    My hatred does consume me.

    Hate the most The Bulldogs.
    In a close second The Storm.
    Then The Wabbits.

    I'm with bones on this one. Can't stand the kebab boys. Hate them more than the Scum, and by a considerable margin too.
    Only about a month now until we get to beat up on them some more.

    Damn straight he didn't. I am utterly consumed by hatred for the filthy purple scum and it takes absolutely no effort whatsoever.

    I have just found out that I have to be in Melbourne for business Mon-Wed next week.

    I'm torn, if I go then I will be contributing to them financially.

    Hate is for the fans v fans.
    The players all know one another from juniors or rep teams or moving clubs. I'm sure there are individuals that particularly hate one another but for them to just blanket hate an entire team would be hypocritical.

    We on the other hand can feel the hate. That's our job. If we can vibe the players up enough to go nuts on the field, even better.

    Kitey has worn a Saints jersey, but I never have and never will. I'd like to burn one, with the dirty f@*#ing c%>t that owns it still in it. Same could be said for Slime, scum and all the rest.

    This is why it was so good seeing our boys get stuck into them in 2011. For at least a few minutes there it was as if the players hated the dirty cheating scum as much as us fans.

    Ahhh fun times!

    Today's Telegraph League lift out says Melbourne have 8.5 start on Footytab. That surprises me. If it's simply a mistake in the Telegraph however, that doesn't surprise me.

    The Storm is $1.44 so 8.5 is about right for those odds.I reckon there average winning margin would be close to 15- 20 down there as we have won 2 from 10 and been pasted plenty of times.

    Manly should be getting the 8.5 start though, not the Storm.
