With the carve-ups, agro and rampant testosterone driven comments on the various forums it is clear that the long (it has seemed like years) months of the off season are about to come to a clanging end. Can't come a minute too soon. Even the doomsdayers are secretlly harbouring a glimmer of hope for a Manly revival so it will be sensational to see the boys get out and start their quest for NRL glory. The punters are lashing out, the teams lists are starting, the fan day is on today and the Hoppa/Steppa debate means that things are about to be on in earnest. All the best to all for a great season, May Brookie become a 'fortresss' to all visiting teams, may the Manly defence find some steel, make our players stay healthy and well (and out of trouble - Hoppa!) and may all Manly fans get great enjoyment from following our team! Go you Eagles!
