All, I have retired the sad Manly fan avatar. Hopefully it is never to return.
Great to see the Ox again as I fear his contributions in 2008 is often overshadowed by the razzle dazzle brigade. Hope to see Manly's OFFICIAL announcement of his signing/retiring soon
Awwwwww. I liked it Loobs. Thought it was funny..
I gave my 2008 GF seats away to a couple from Perth who were desperate to attend and Grant Mayer ( I think it was him then ) organised a couple of seats for me and I ended up sitting with the players family's, and right next to Oxy's brother and Mum / Dad, nice people and very animated on the day ( as we all were).
Forever my favourite Sea Eagle - the little champion.
Are you Ken Arthurson's son Mark? You seem just a little too close to all the action to be just your average Manly supporter. I mean Ken just lives down the road these days doesnt he?
Mark from Brisbane, son of Blake Leary
100%. I think Ox generally gets forgotten about when compared to the Stewarts, Choc, Kitey, Robbo, Wolf, Killer etc, but you can't do much better than winning the Dally M Player of the year like he did in 2008.
No mate but don't forget from 2006-2013 I ran the MWTS, working closely with the club, dealt with CEO's from Lowe to Perry, all of whom spoke to me frequently. So plenty of inside contacts during that time.
Oxy played a very very big part of the success of 2008, maybe gone but never forgotten!!
We don't forget the Ox, but the league public and the media tend to forget his contributions to that era. His combination with Killer playing 5/8 at the back end of 2008 was a BIG reason why we won the premiership.
I still think you're Ken Arthurson's son.
Would that make him the Godson of Manly?
I think I should change my avatar. No one identifies with a moose. Maybe.....I'll put a pic of Mark there
I've met Arko many times, lovely man. He came to a MWTS function we had at the Gold Coast, only about 30 of us there , spent 3 hours with us , very generous of his time. I still have his phone numbers in my address book, but you'd have to kill me to get them!!
That would explain why Leary is a bit of a plodder - he must be pushing 80.
Hey I've got a printing press as my avatar... Something something no one knows what a KOMORI is lol..
Pffft, I've known what a Komori is for ages!!! (After I saw your username and googled it.)
Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat.
Get a Rex Mossop image, the real Moose
