All the angst and allegations and gnashing of teeth around here of late, and for what? Answer: We are worried we won't keep winning footy games. If Manly was winning we would scarcely care how often players left and new players arrived. We wouldn't care about the whys and the wherefores. Are people really so terrified of the possibility we might not only miss the finals, but come last and never again be competitive, and eventually face relocation or oblivion? Based on our unrivalled record of success, that fear is scarcely rational. So let's all try to maintain some decorum for Heaven's sake. Let's keep our reputation as winners not whiners. For If we enter a rebuilding phase is that not merely an opportunity to see a new team emerge, and rise - step by step, but with inevitability - towards future glory?
