A few of us need to settle down and realise that we are being played by the media: A lot of stuff printed has been guesswork, designed to sell papers. The "Jamie Lyon is being sacked" story is a perfect example. Another example is that 14 players who have been given permission to look elsewhere - two players who have actually signed eg Ligi Sao were not on the media lists. It is no secret that Barrett is coming to Manly and Tooves is not stupid. Someone on the Sea Eagles board are passing information - it is getting to the media. That the info makes the Penns look bad would indicate that is not necessarily them. The idea bandied around is that it is Zorba but that doesn't make sense. If this was all happening behind closed doors (and kept that way) there wouldn't be a story. However, the hatred between the two factions in the club is still fuelling the media releases. If the owners of the club don't believe that Tooves is the man to take the club forward, what else are they to do but meet with him and discuss the matter? The fact that it is all over the media is the big issue. Pity but so much is guesswork and/or disloyal clubmen stirring up the muck.
