What's doing here ? A disturbing piece written in today's SMH. Hopefully a storm in a tea cup, but pretty serious allegations. http://www.smh.com.au/sport/manly-sponsor-severs-link-over-product-misuse-20120128-1qmzx.html A MANLY sponsor has withdrawn its backing from the NRL club amid claims that the former Sea Eagles media manager, Peter Peters, appropriated property that had been provided for the players' use. The long-time sponsor, which has pumped in a six-figure sum over almost two decades, is now considering whether to refer the matter to the police. Fearing adverse publicity for its brand and the club, it has asked to remain unnamed. The alleged incident occurred at the start of last season. The sponsor claims it brought the matter to the club's attention but no action was taken. A second attempt was made to raise the issue before Christmas in correspondence with the club, which has been obtained by The Last Word. In an email, the sponsor says, ''â€¦ At no stage was my [product] ever delivered or used â€¦ for the players' use as per Peter Peters request, contrary to signed legal lease documents â€¦ I received no apology for Peter Peters action or lease monies refunded by the Club to me. As stated above, I withdrew my Sponsorship after I ascertained and confirmed that Peter Peters had moved my Co. [product] and gave it to one of his best mates â€¦'' The sponsor went on, ''In short, I personally believe that Peter Peters is not a fit and proper person to be on any Board involving the MWDRLC and representing Members, Sponsors or fans of the Club period.'' The sponsor demanded Peters's immediate sacking. Peters, who was involved in the infamous ''good sort'' gaffe last year, parted ways with the Sea Eagles following their premiership triumph. Asked to comment on the matter, he said: ''It was handled by the [then-]CEO Graham Lowe at the time. It is embarrassing for people to bring it up and very petty. Perhaps the person who brought it up should have a look at themselves.''
