    Guy's go check out bulldog ritchies twitter feed from tonight https://twitter.com/bulldogritchie

    It is the most unprofessional thing I have read from a so called journalist.

    He basically confirms that he is just Penns mouth piece in the media he is in a slanging match with people.

    I have very little time for journo's but his behaviour tonight on twitter is a joke.

      Just out of almost comical disinterest I just took a look at that twitter link. I would rather chew razor blades that do that again.

          He's been writing anti- Delmege/pro-Penn articles going all the way back to 2009 if you Google it. The Penns/Zorba have leaked to him and Rothfield, making it all public instead of keeping it in house. In doing so they've undermined the club and caused the exodus of players. There needs to be an extraordinary meeting of members called to sort this crap out.

            Max is a passionate supporter (like him or not) I don't know man I respect what he did for our club. I just can't believe a supposedly objective journo would carry on like that on twitter.

            He did himself or the Penns no credit.

            Bulldog is nearly a 50 year old man and he is doing a #penn #zorba (like a teenager) maybe it was tongue in cheek but it looked terrible.

                Max made his point and should have ducked out - you are not going to win against a fool

                Penns have been airing our problems and leaking things to the media since our news conference years ago when Quantum came on a our major sponsor.

                Instead of it being a positive announcement, penn decided to air our dirty laundry by telling the media conference about delmege not paying his bills.

                Even if it were true (which no doubt it was) you don't tell the Rugby League world about it. That should've been kept inhouse.

                As it was always the penns version being leaked, the other side decided to leak as well to balance the argument. Now we just have Manly bashing not only from the media but from within every year.

                Never trusted him since and he has given me good reason not to every year.

                I wish they would sell up and move on.

                Calling all millionaires!!!!!!

                  Ritchie should be writing about the sale of the MW District Leagues Club at under market value to a related party.

                  Still don't understand how the LC agreed to sell for 7m, real estate onsold at 21m ?
                  Allegedly the LC were still left with a 3m debt after this transpired.

                  Or were the reported in the DT articles wrong?

                  A community asset lost @:cry:

                    I would also like that to be investigated.

                    I truly believe that was the only reason the penns decided to buy into Manly.

                    Not just the Leagues Club but did they also get the old Football Club land?

                    I think they saw a VERY LUCRATIVE opportunity to make millions and jumped in after Max had to cough up the initial cash to keep us afloat. When they saw blood in the water with Max and his business, they jumped in knowing full well the new tv deal meant clubs received a major increase in grants and they woudn't have to cough up as much money as in the past.

                    Now they've made a VERY LUCRATIVE profit from our Leagues club which just happens to have his uncle on the board.

                    Stinks to high heaven if you ask me.

                      Of course you would say that. At least Ritchie had foot in mouth and told everyone what we have been thinking for years. Who the real leak was..

                      You don't think it was embarrassing for everyone? I thought that was a balanced assessment. I don't think Ritchie or max showered themselves in respectability. they had a public slanging match. I think you should get over yourself I wasn't bagging your God I simply said it wasn't a good look

                      You wouldn't necessarily need millionaires to buy out Manly. If Penns bought out Quantum for $9 million for their 50% of Manly then a max of $20 million would buy at least a controlling interest or wholly owned.

                      A consortium of say 4000 Manly fans pinching in $5000 each could own Manly, appoint our own board and staff. With a vested interest the shareholders would network and attain sponsors to pay for the day to day running of the club. Essentially the same as making Manly public but only offering ownership to Manly fans so that we can't be bought out by news or some other party that would be in it for the $ instead of the heart.

                        For mind max made his point and could have left Ritchie to embarrass himself more (rather than dropping down to his level)

                        No not embarrassing at all.
                        I actually think it's great even if it wasn't Max that someone finally stood up to him, slammed him then silenced him for the night.
                        The horrible things he has written about our club it's about time someone did it.
