I have supported Manly for over 40 years and I have been thinking about the great memorable moments that I have witnessed in that time. Moment 5: The day that Manly went to Whinger stadium in March 1988 and blew the worms off the park 64-12. The sight of their fans scurrying out of the ground with 15 minutes to go was priceless. Moment 4: In March 1982 when Manly overcame the dirty dogs at Belmore 8-7 when we were down to 11 men. That day we lost the penalty count about 18-7 yet that team repelled wave after wave of attacks to come away with a famous win. Moment 3: July 1994, when the dragons came to visit Brooky and Manly chalked up a record 61-0 obliteration of the Saints, that was a perfect day for the team and will never forget Ridgey kicking the last goal to get us over the 60 mark. Moment 2: September 1978 - Final series. For sheer pleasure this for me was the most satisfying premiership the club has every won. That team overcame adversity that I have never seen until the most recent side to overcome replays and serious injuries to beat 3 quality teams and win the premiership, I was 11 years old and my hero was Graham Eadie, he was the man of the match in that grand final and the famed Manly spirit was shining in that team. Moment 1: The 2008 grand final win over the drizzle was an emotional day. For most of us it was fitting that we won which erased the fact that we nearly lost the team about 9 years earlier to the northern eagles farce. We beat an enemy that we later found out had cheated their way to success and my biggest memory from that day was seeing the Beaver stroll over for the 7th try of the day, still brings a tear to my eye that one. Well thats a few of my special moments and I am sure all of you out there has a few too. Please share them with everyone. I know there is a lot of speculation about the future but its nice to remind ourselves of why this club means so much to us all.
