Mark O'Meley's attitude. (Take Test front-rower Mark O'Meley. He was told to take six weeks off after the recent Tri-Nations campaign and return in January. "They told me to go home and freshen up, "O'Meley said. To noone's great shock, O'Meley turned up to training on his first day off. Old school.) Source - Telegraph Lift-Out. I wonder if Steve Matai, Jamie Lyon, Brent Kite & Steve Menzies are also "old school"? I read in the paper this morning that Jamie Lyon was out Monday night with Jersey Flegg players drinking all day, and one of his mates hit a bloke AND his girlfriend !!! @ Manly's cab rank at midnight!!! And that Jamie Lyon had to be peacemaker. If you blokes were on the path to a good footballing career, and you "heard" that you were a great player etc. Knowing that you only had maybe 12 years tops in the game - would you sacrafice drinking. I know some would, some wouldn't, and it's not wrong either way - but I certainly would have...to get every bit of athletacism out of myself for those 12 years. I worry about the culture at Manly lads:- 1. Steve Matai hit some guy at the Sands Hotel (potentially); 2. Jamie Lyon and Jersey Flegg player issue in Manly; 3. Anthony Watmough story in paper about his drinking problem; 4. The "mystery" Manly player getting in a brawl at Mona Vale Hotel; 5. Michael Bani coming from drugs and alcohol to Manly; etc etc... Then people question why Brent Kite has issues with the culture at Manly.... In my opinion, something needs to be changed. The Roosters (I think it was them) have all agreed to a no grog policy. It's time we had some "old school" attitude at this club.
