    DALLY M rookie of the year Daly Cherry-Evans got nothing more than a handshake and a greenkeeper's uniform at the Sea Eagles' NSW Academy of Sport headquarters at Narrabeen. Just three years ago, the halfback was earning $250-a-week as a living away from home allowance.

    I love the fact we are bringing so many young guys through. It is so much better to develop superstars than to buy them.

    Just wish the same philosophy was in place about thirty years ago, when we had both good local juniors and unknown imports, generally being overlooked for big names from elsewhere. I'm talking early 80s in particular, when only one big name import, Noel Cleal, went on to play for Manly in a premiership winning team.

    Some of the money saved could have gone into Brookvale Oval, not into the pockets of players like Phil Sigsworth and Dave Brown.

    IMO, one of the best stories ever written of our Club.

    These days, ppl don't believe that we could rort the salary cap simply because we don't have the funds to do it.

    "Manly tries to buy a Premiership!"
    Yep, and so does every other club.

    But this story, with our young stars right at its base, talks about pathways and passion, foregoing the cash. A great read.

    There needs to be more salary cap concessions for juniors coming through like this. It would be great to see the bulk of them stay at the same club.

        No, you need to work on your spelling.

        Grammar is more or less the rules regarding the structure of writing. Full stops, commas, word placement and such. Your issue was with spelling and selecting the correct version of a similar word.

        I'll make the call, tough though it is. It's a mistake in both spelling AND grammar.

        To be fair, yes there was a grammatical error in there, however, the correction was for spelling and not grammar
