you think those 10 to 25 year olds don't know who Manly is ?
Just suddenly changing Manlys name & having them play a few games at NSO isn't going to make a new club that used to be Manly any more appealing to anyone in that area.
A nthn team ended with the demise of the nthn eagles , great idea .. just badly handled ended up being a complete disaster.
the problem with suburbanism is exactly that. Why would a youngster in anywhere other than the peninsula want to support manly? It has no relevance to them and has historic baggage.
No just changing a name will make no difference, it needs to be a much more sophisticated business plan than that!
