I dont understannd how some of our clubs "Finest and most loyal" supporters can sit here and bad mouth Des by saying "Sack him now" and "Des is a Dog" excuse the pun. First of all if you open your eyes and ears you should know by now that Des has been a GOD for this club for the past 8 years. So in my opinion he is entitled to do whatever he wants. 2 premierships in 3 appearances. Every single finals series bar one of his coaching years. Sticking up for the club by fronting the media about every single issue concerning manly. And some of you are asking for his head because what really happened, the club had 18 months to tie him up but couldnt align there thoughts with Des' future outlook, thats just ridiculous. No one will EVER no the extent to what was said at the time of the interactions between Des and the board. All I know is that I cant blame Des for wanting to leave a club who after 8 years and 2 premierships still wont give Des want he wants. That smells like a selfish and greedy along with a Power-tripping board who have nothing better to do than to ensure whatever they say goes. Even at the expense of our Greatest coach ever. Toovey has been there since day 1. As a lower grade coach, as Des' assistant, as a water runner. He has been as much influential as Des has been over the past 8 years. I am 100% sure the players will respect him as a coach. They arent stupid, they know whats going on. If some of them want to leave then so be it. They dont deserve to Don our colours just because they liked being coached by a particular coach. The coach coaches for the club and the players. The players play for the club first and then the coach. Like Ken Arthuson said, "Manly is a resilient old club," Arthurson said. "We have been through tough times before. We have been on our knees but have always been able to stand up and get back on top again. This club has always bounced back." And he couldnt be more on the money. We are Manly. We will make it through this.
