3 Apr: The Kingstone Press League 1 Match Thread (Good Friday)

Recommended Posts

Report on the Bears vs Oxford match in the Coventry Telegraph. (Please bear in mind that Aidan is not an RL reporter per-se when you read it).

Also includes some highlights footage.

Nothing wrong with that report it accentuated the positive - an RU reporter could easily have emphasised the number of errors, Oxford's poor form and called the 721 crowd "meagre" rather then "bumper". Trust me, it's been done.


"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

I obviously didn't make myself clear - sorry. I meant that he's a 'general purpose' reporter (without wishing to be rude), and as such I thought he'd done a good job! Agree with your points.


eh?
