A bit like Stevo (but younger and more athletic)?

I was thinking a little less camp (although don't tell him I said that!).

I agree to a point, problem is most of the quotes from the likes of Murphy were only read in newspapers, these day Television is the media of choice for news, our players, in the main, do not come across well on TV.

 

What I do hate is the rent a quote "quality opposition", "its always hard when you come here" etc.

 

We have a media management problem at clubs, clubs think media management is about controlling what people say, it isn't, its about managing 

where what people say appears.

I quite liked the David Ferriol quotes that he was going to smash Adrian Morley in the Cup Semi's a couple of years ago - which it turned out were made up by the RFL media dept!  :aggressive:

Most quotes put out in press releases these days are from the media department and the player/coach etc. never said them, even when they appear on club TV its all scripted by the media department.

 

The media department shouldn't be about creating the message it has to be about delivering it.

We need to issue a challenge: RL fans v RU & soccer fans (both gay) outside school gates on last day of term.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

Jamie Jones Buchanan: 'I can't wait to eat Paul Gallen and Sonny Bill for breakfast'

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I don't know what's more surprising, that the above quote was made up or that the RFL actually have a media department.

But seriously, we don't want to get down to the depths of, say,  boxing's "pre fight hype" rubbish do we ?

Maybe not quite that far, but boxing does seem to attract plenty of viewers so there must be something in it.

To be honest, I kind of agree. I was thinking about this the other day. I think RL is becoming a bit too sterile. Too clean. We keep trying to be the most morally superior sport and personally I think it holds us back. I think it's great that we have these high values, but as the saying goes "controversy creates cash". There's a reason why we get in the papers for the frowned upon things!

 

 

There's a balance obviously, but I don't think sitting on our high horse is going to help with promoting the game IMO.
