    Gawd if the Marlins are thinking about Brookie they might as well go the whole way to Rat Park.

    If we're seriously looking at getting improvements to Brookie Oval then sharing with Marlins would seem to be a step in the right direction. Games basically each weekend at Brookie wouldn't be a bad result.

    Having the Marlins use the ground is good, it allows us to lobby people a little harder, saying the ground is used by 2 teams, it also makes it harder for the council to demonize us to the rest of the community.

    It won't help financially for two reason, firstly the Marlins will not attract the crowds needed to foot any kind of bill and secondly, the council would just pocket any extra money anyhow and not put it to good use.

    Except we're asking WARRINGAH Council to stump up cash for two MANLY teams. How's that help the profile of Warringah council area?

    I'm sorry, I must have missed it when they changed from being the Manly-WARRINGAH Sea Eagles to just being the Manly Sea Eagles.......

    You see - the problem with that is that people like Kirsch (in my opinion) are now one trick ponies. Brookvale Oval, and the debate is ALL she HAS now.

    Take that away from people like her, and people would question what as a councilor she is actually doing?

    My theory has always been with people like her, the following.

    Instead of squabbling over the scraps of money that OTHERS have lobbied to attain, why not try being pro-active, getting off your arse, and acquiring SEPARATE funding for things on your own right?

    Now, I know that sounds novel, but it CAN be done if these people are motivated in improving our community.

    I am yet to see ANY evidence that Kristina, and her council have attained funding for our schools, hospitals, infrastructure and co. What I HAVE seen is evidence that she has seen a wet rag thrown our way by state government, after a LOT of work by passionate people (Reilly, Spray, Mayer, Lowe & everyone else - not trying to leave anyone out there), and she wants to pick and scrape at it, because it makes her look pro-active to her 80+ year old, minority group of fans that support and vote for her.

    Here's the thing. We presented a petition, with 10,000 odd signatures on it with the help "from her community" that suggests her views are skew. If she, and other councilors are so blind as to understand this is not "community opinion" then they are more narrow minded than I could ever imagine.

    Discussions with Mounties took place as long ago as 9 months ago. They fell over and hopefully it is successful this time. Manly are desperate to find somewhere for the unrequired NRL players to play.

    I doubt this affiliation will mean that any games wll be played at Brooky. Mounties won't conced to that and that would mean more cost to Manly.

    correct me if i'm wrong but aren't Mounties affiliated with Parra?? Probably makes sense though, we end up with all their juniors!

    The unwated players dont play games at brookie now as they end up on the Sunshine Coast so I hope that isn't a sticking point.
