I think the worst thing about this year is, I've lost all sense of what is Manly. Is it just an idea now? I've always known what Manly is. Grit. Determination. Never Say Die. Tough. Do what it takes. Creative. Take no prisoners. Honour the jumper. Players right back to Krilich, Igor, through Tooves, Menzies, and even BK (you never had to be here forever to embody it). Of this current lot, I'm not sure who embodies it. Killer, Matai, Snake, Matty Ballin, the Trbojevics, Jamie Buhrer definitely do. Of the rest, I'm not so sure. The big disappointment and where, to me, we lost our soul this year, was Foz. I really did think he was Manly and for him to be so off for much of the year and so easily walk away, left a bit of a hole in my understanding of what Manly is. I hope next year that I see we are still Manly and not just an idea. Thoughts?
