Had no choice, my mum brought me up to love manly.
The Bears had a very good team, I used to walk up to North Sydney oval and watch them when Manly were not playing at Brookie most games.
Should have won a comp with all the talent they had playing for them in the 80’s / 90’s.
Born in the late 70s.
Dad took me every 2nd week to Brookie as a young fella, where I spent most of the game sliding down the back of the hill on used beer cartons.
Best thing about Manly....4 generations of supporters get together every week to watch the boys, win lose or draw.
It's more than just footy for us, it's a family thing.
