Yawn

There are plenty of good rebuttals by most of you in this thread.

It's just to sell papers.

A couple of things:

That "outline" website is fair dinkum useless. Has it ever worked for anyone on here over 5%?

Also, anyone can come to Brookie, low numbers mean opposition fans don't travel. why isn't there a constant stream of articles about how opposition fans don't travel to Manly?

If the media keep chanting how everyone hates Manly, maybe non manly fans don't want to come along to Brookie.

Over the last 10 years or so coming to the fortress usually meant having your butts kicked which aides in opposition fans not wanting to travel to Brookie.

As HappilyManly said, the real crime is that 1 billion dollars on the toothless and still the stadium is almost empty.

Brainless Ritchie, coward of high rank also doesn't take into account timing of games and believes there is a 50 lane roadway to and from Lottoland causing no traffic issues what so ever.

Of course with last years efforts, it may be understandable to see the drop off in numbers. But Des and the team are doing well.

But yes, tweaked numbers do show a drop off. Maybe the nrl should pay more attention to Manly's requests for the time slots we want.

Brainless Ritchie, coward of high rank's article is such a rehash of dribble, I am dumber for having responded to it.

#talkthegameup


That whinge aside, I hope every Manly fan that can, gets out to the ground (and holds up a 'I wish ge was here' sign) :)

Apart from protecting the hill plenty of good reasons to get down to the Fortress on Sunday;

  1. Great winter weather on Sunday - nothing better than enjoying it on the hill
  2. Crusty Demons along with the Crusty Babes will be there - check out their marquee near Arko entrance
  3. How good is it when we beat the Eels- even better witnessing it live: itโ€™s never the same unless your at the game
  4. You will feel like a true supporter when your on the hill (or stands) in maroon and white

Bring your flags!

I'll be there with another few Manly supporters. Trouble is my son married a former Eel cheerleader and she is also coming along.
Your son needs to get divorced.:giggle:

Nicci I have seen my club disappear once before, I donโ€™t want to have that happen again.

That is why I am so passionate about membership and getting bums on seats at Brookie.

It not only helps the club survive but thrive

I'm kinda wondering if:

1) People actually saw the "stupid is coming" type on the pic and,
2) They realise it was a play on the GoT "Winter is coming" slogan.
Sure GE.
The stupid that is coming frightens me and makes me hurl.:p
I actually had nightmares last night. I dreamed I had to teach a class full of parra supporters' children and the government wouldn't classify them as disadvantaged and give me the extra funding I'd need to educate them to become Manly supporters.:giggle:

I reckon this is the direct result of:
The run down facilities at Brooky spectators experience
The price for attendance
Renaming it to Lottoland
Ownership screwing with the culture of the club the past few years
Onfield performance

The crap thing will be if dean nutcase ritchie tries to take any credit for the crowd.

Manly playing well, sunny day, good time slot, at home, against a traditional rival...of course the crowd was going to be big.

yet he'll probably try and take credit for it

cause he is a

everybody....

tosspot!
