The Cory Patterson headline was lead story today for all of 5 minutes, only to be replaced by the Widnes crowd trouble story. What are the odds that this stays as the lead story for an extended period?
What is just as interesting as the clear evidential bias of the Beeb and the Daily Avoid the Truths is :
People on here and other forums claiming this doesn't happen despite the constant proof to the contrary,
People accusing you of being a conspiracy nut for bringing it up,
People insisting that RL is a small sport and only deserves that amount of coverage!
Even if you state up front that you don't believe in conspiracies it makes no difference but the relationship between the amount of coverage, the type of coverage (positive or negative) and it's ability to prosper are the fact of life between RL and other inferior products.
"Until this imbalance is addressed we will never become a National Sport.
I thought Brian Barwick was brought into Rugby League to help out with this situation. It's obviously working, Well done Brian!!" Scarlet Turkey yet again!
But to address that very imbalance you have to be able to mention the unmentionable so we're turned down the proverbial cul de sac yet again!
Or you could go to the cross code straight away, on your own, to discuss things with the "entertainmently" challenged and the terminally addicted to image! Best of luck with that one!
