I love this club more than I can say. I've been following Manly for 20 years now and have been through the all the highs and lows. I went to my first game in 97 as an 8 year old and have been a die hard ever since. Me and my Grandfather have season tickets (Have had them for about 15 years now) and we travel over from Bankstown to Brookvale whenever we can to watch the boys play. We have been all over the country and to New Zealand to support the team. Some of my best memories with my Grandfather are because of this club and I am very grateful to Manly. This is why I am posting this. I know all of you are as die hard as I am or you wouldn't be posting on here. I'm willing to bet that you all love the club as much as I do. Which means that you all must be feeling as ordinary as I am about the state of the club at the moment, as it is torn apart by a management team that is, to put it mildly, clearly not up to the task. The decisions made in recruiting over the last few years have been abysmal. The recruitment of Myles and Brown were reckless and ill considered. In a league as competitive as the NRL, recruitments like these are unforgivable. Despite this, its the players and staff told to leave that is most disappointing. Toovey, Glenn Stewart, Ballin, Gutherson, Hiku and now Buhrer (I'm probably forgetting people) have all been given the boot and for the most part, have been replaced by imposters that in all truth aren't fit to represent manly for either on or off field attitudes. Guth and Hiku were not established first graders in truth but to terminate two young players who had both recently signed new contracts with the club is extremely inappropriate and unacceptable. The Team management decisions aren't the only causes for concern. The attitude by those running things is unacceptable. This is a professional football club but the like of Fulton, Peters and penn have turned the place into a joke. Allowing for no cohesion within the football club and showing utter contempt for the fans. Other unexplainable decisions such as hiring John Hopoate to mentor our youth team also come to mind. The part about the fans is what I'm going to make my point around. It's pretty clear that these people don't care how the fans think or feel. They could not care less about the concerns we express about where the club is heading. I feel as though we could make them care if we work together to make a statement. No matter what anyone says, this is our club. We make it, we pay for it and we support it. I am suggesting that we should get together and threaten a boycott of next years first home game. Just the first home game as the players don't really deserve us not showing up. The media would have a field day with it if they got wind and it would make Penn and his cronies look very ordinary. We could demand a truthful explanation as to why some club favourites have been treated so poorly or we could demand a written statement saying that no more club players will be treated this way going forward. Hell we could demand that peters be sacked on the grounds of all the ****ty things he's done in the past. Something to discuss. Sorry for the long winded post I just feel like my club is being taken away from me and I really do fear for the future of it. Would love to hear your thoughts on all of this. I feel like the Fans of this club need to take more action to ensure the its future. P.S. Please be civil, I'm putting myself out there a bit and trying bring us together for something positive.
