Plea Message to Des = 1. Please spare us your wrath and vengeance. Please do not take the support staff with you. If you take Crusher and co. with you, you'll hurt the very foundation of the place you once called home. Please start anew at the other club. 2. Take note, the board is NOT Manly. They won't be around forever. The fans, the community and your neighbours are the district the Sea Eagles represent. 3. Remember the good times you have at Manly. You are a dual premiership winner as a player and a coach. You have a special place in our history. Please don't hurt your image and the innocent fans who are here just to support our Manly club. 4. I hope you do stay in 2012 to ensure your successor (most likely Tooves) has a smooth transition. I'm sure Tooves is a mate and no one will leave his mate with nothing to start a career with. 5. If you leave us without tearing down what you have built, you will always have a special place in our memory. You will always be welcome whenever you return to the club. The fans will respect you even more. There's nothing in the world like goodwill. 6. If you need us fans to beg, to say "Please don't take Crusher and co. with you", I'm sure plenty of us will easily go down on our knees. Our love for our club reigns over whatever pride we have. -- from a humble Manly fan.
