waste of time these polls comparing players unless the recipients are non manly supporters.if you put monaghan v sherwin,finch,gower,seymour,johns,thurston,prince,kimmorley ets he wouldnt get a single vote in non eagle territory.
this is not to criticise the manly boys who like him.even though i disagree there is no shame in backing your man.it would be the same at all other clubs.
the simple fact is in neutral camps he doesnt register on the radar versus the top guys and all our good natured banter wont change that.
all this hand wringing is also a waste.there is no conspiracy.manly have made a decision and placed a value on his services which is lower than what michael regards is his worth.happens all the time but management is about making those decisions.michael will iether agree to it or move on.
one of the reasons we didnt get tahu last year is because management made a decision on his worth and did not exceed that value,thus allowing the eels to pay silly money.and they were righti.i trust that des,crusher,bozo etc have the ability to make a judgement on a player's value far better than we can.we all talked early in the season about des,crusher and co having the ability to take us forward.what has changed.why stop trusting their judjement now because they are making a judgement call in their area of expertise and with day to day exposure to a player's talents.
