I was just thinking with all of the posts leading up to this. Which poster actually predicted or called it first.

The Tooves interview on Fox weeks ago was the first glimmer of a Des return. Tooves mentioned Des might be interested. A few eagle eyed posters latched on to this as hope that he and or Des were in the mix.
And Tooves seemed in a pretty good place discussing it too.
So here's hoping he'll get some sort of gig as well...

This is interesting to me, The fact that Des was mentioned at all and even in a positive light says to me that he is in Penn's thoughts, which makes me think he may be part of the group of possibilities. I think Des may be a dark horse. Probably tin foil hat stuff but i do.
I thought this was telling at the time

I donโ€™t about who called it first.

But there was a group of us on here who were calling for Des to return for atleast 12
Months.

To be fair, Zorba made the call that he would return in one of his first Manly Daily articles in 2011 after Des left. Obviously not a popular call at the time, but he mad the call back then, and he's now been vindicated.
