    WHEN they know, they know. It is Monday morning, the eyes open and every muscle and sinew screams for it to end. That's when the player knows, within himself, that it is time to retire. Steve Menzies simply doesn't know.

      When I spoke to the great man a few weeks ago (memory flashback to one of the greatest days of my life!!!!!), he said his Mrs would kill him if he said he wanted to play another year.

      A positive Dt article? Is it opposite day in aust this friday?

      Ahhh Beaver, let him do what he wants to do. Someone needs to get his dna if he still wakes up not really sore.

      Loved reliving that youtube vid :)

      Over many decades of watching Manly and lots of special highlights, Beaver's try in the GF will probably go down as the greatest moment in my supporting memory. I just can't see it being topped.

      This sentence sums up the Manly legend Steve Menzies
      "I just didn't want to play against Manly"

      I would suggest that plans should be put in place now for Beaver to take over the membership drive from Vautin at some point. Imagine the success Beaver would have if you received a message from him asking for you to join or renew your membership.

      Who can so no to Beaver I ask you.

        Agree!!!

        This year it wasn't Fatty, but the 2 wonderfull halves, Foz and DCE, that got the Membership Numbers up.

        Also the vicarious Bulldogs Board must have 'Got Their Wings' - Manly-like :p
        May they suffer the same fate as Icarus, and all those that attempted to rip Manly apart :bash:

          why the beaver is not regarded as one of the modern greats of the game i do not know.his record speaks for itself,number of club games,represented his state and country,number of tries and not a single blemish in his career.what it doesn't show is the balance,poise,and footwork of his running style,the pace,anticipation and ability to run into holes,the timing and technique of his tackling or that he is also a very decent human who" just wanted to live his dream of playing for manly".weren't we lucky to of had him.gotta be our greatest.
          cheers mike
