http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,25091520-5001023,00.html MANLY fans are planning a mass rebellion against the club's fractured board over the civil war that is tearing the premiers apart. The club's paid-up members are drawing up an official petition that will force the board to call an extraordinary general meeting next month. The EGM - which will give fans a forum to grill individual directors over their ugly stoush - will take place if fans can muster just 40 signatures for their petition. Fans yesterday claimed they were being ignored in the current drama and wanted to know why: COACH Des Hasler's deal was extended by just one year with key performance indicators included; CHIEF executive Grant Mayer was not offered a new deal after securing $4 million worth of sponsorship this year; and CO-OWNER Max Delmege wants to sack club icon and media manager Peter "Zorba'' Peters. Sea Eagles supporters claim that they would have little difficulty in obtaining the necessary 40 signatures and last night began compiling an official petition. The Daily Telegraph can also reveal the prospect of a rebel ticket - a la Parramatta - being run at November's elections for the footballclub board. That board has two directors - Kerry Sibraa and Philip Deanon - on the Sea Eagles board which controls the NRL club. Fans are angry that Sibraa and Dean have aligned themselves with the Delmege faction. Mark Tramby, a football club member for eight years, wants answers from the club's directors. "The board has made some bizarre decisions we, as football club members, have a right to question them on,'' he said. "The fans are distraught about this whole thing. Des is one of Manly's favourite sons who built this team from oblivion. "How we can ever forget 40-0? Grant has brought-in two multi-million sponsorship deals and there isn't a more passionate Manly man than Zorba. We need some explanations. Let's get this out in the open. Getting 40 signatures wouldn't be a problem. I reckon I could get them in half a day.'' Football club member Cameron Smith asked fans to unite and front the board. "They are not acting on behalf of the members,'' he said. "The coach won a Grand Final 40-0 and they have put in KPIs - that's an absolute disgrace. "Max Delmege and Scott Penn can vote whatever way they want. They put the money in. But the two football club directors shouldn't align themselves with any camp. They should be voting on behalf of us.'' Mayer, in England for the World Club Challenge, was last night unavailable for comment. But bloggers were angry yesterday. Sea Eagles Stalwart said he could not "imagine why Dessie wouldn't get an extension of his contract. He should be Test coach as well. "Dessie has lifted the side out of the doldrums of a few years back when he took over to a first class outfit capable of claiming back-to-back titles.''
