As a Bulldogs fan I must say that I almost feel sorry for the way that everything has happened since the grand final win. We have poached your coach and all his best staff. Your board room is a mess and your club looks to be falling apart. We certainly took the gloss of the grand final win. Manly now seems to be a chance of folding at worst. Like I said I almost feel sorry for the Manly club. Then I remember the North Sydney Bears and how the Manly club destroyed them. I look at the poaching Manly did of Parra and Western Suburbs many years ago ripping these clubs apart. I then think to myself is this karma? Do the Manly club deserve all of this. If nothing else it is ironic that the salary cap was set up to ensure clubs do not poach players and stockpile talent like Manly did many years ago. But the coach and staff do not have a salary cap and they have been poached from that very club. Call it what you will, I call it fair play.
