Thread: Media do it again

    I love it how the match report of Carlon vs Brisbane focuses on Carlton's quality and silk across all lines, their depth and genuine premiership chances. Yet when we beat Brisbane at home by the same margin, it's all about how inept Brisbane were.

    Otherwise, with every close game it's another chance to talk about the brave opposition - Essendon, North and now the Tigers.

    I'd love a Carlton win this week at the very least so we can throw some of this reporting back in their face and force them to acknowledge our performances this year.

    I do realise inefficient kicking is a problem of ours, but that doesn't mean Richmond played any better. Too many vic journalists giving them credit for what? Luckily being in striking range when they decided to match our intensity? It's a joke that they all keep saying, 'oh look how much Richmond has improved, they pushed Sydney right till the end'. Even Damien Hardwick reckons that this game is one they should have won, but let go. NO! It's one Sydney should have won by 10 goals, but almost lost.

    Delusions of grandeur.

    If you mean a win against Carlton, so would I!

    I attended the Blues game yesterday and they were not flash at all. Judd was quiet, Waite appeared at the lunch and said he MAY be back next week. If we can turn up properly we can knock these blokes off. Kreuzer looked a little ominous on his first hitout I must say. When Brisbane played any footy at all they seemed to get a goal but they are pretty pathetic. With GWS next year stuffing up the draft Brisbane are obviously doomed for a long slide.

    Constantly got players names wrong and spent most of the time talking amongst themsleves about whatever in joke was in this week.

    What makes it even worse is you get no statistics during the breaks on how the game is going, even though it's taking them 3 hours to get through the replay anyway.

    And don't mention the extended ad breaks, which ruins the continuity as well.

    It's a @@@@@@@ disgrace what Channel 7 are getting away with at present for this time slot.

    Have to say that that is pretty spot on.
    Frustrations for me?
    Ad breaks make at the start of the quarter ruin the game.
    You kinda know that when there are 4 ads after the first goal that there will be only a couple of goals in that quarter.

    Never been a big Dennis fan, but Bruce has always been cool, until now.
    What was the headline? self Indulgent? Yep.

    Also, a Channel 10 sook, (and this applies to the close games like the Hawks Geelong game) it is blindingly obvious that they have a countdown clock going in their box.
    I hate the 5 minute warning, but if you're going to have it then use it properly..
    when they're saying "and that will be about it" it kinda gives away thet there are only a few secs left

    The tone of this article by Martin Blake is positively anti-Sydney. He sounds as if he's ****ed off that Richmond didn't win.

    Sydney nearly misses out

    Not to mention getting names wrong again: Sydney's amazing inaccuracy kept the game interesting. The Swans kicked 5.14 to half-time, with BEN Reid and Adam Goodes the culprits, and finished with 9.21 for the game.

    I cannot stand Channel 7 coverage, it makes me wild. And I will refuse to buy any **##@@ RACV insurance, or those frozen ice thingies. And that man getting the milk is a wanker. Used to have one ad between goals, now stretching to 4 at a time. Can't wait until next year when I watch the lot on Foxtel.

    You know another thing i've noticed, now watching the Dees/Pies game? When we've got players back we're 'flooding' while teams like Melbourne and Collingwood have 'the full press on'. Give me a break!

    Lol. Me too. Unfortunately I already have RACV.

    I also hate the high shot from the light towers. Can see jack squat from that angle.

    Jude Bolton's uncle I believe. Better not give him a bake or your name will be headlines in that footy rag called Inside Football. They are going so bad now Robert Shaw is writing for them.

    Oh Martin, you should know by now the saying is; "couldn't hit a barn door with a handful of wheat".

    By the way, uncle Martin managed to get a photo of Jude into the big paper.
