    Ex Force Fan on Roar had a go re the complete lack of reporting on Twiggyball by the Roar, & Brett's answer is that he hadn't known anything about any advertising etc? So... journos don't read/watch sports news from other states? Such a piss weak comment.

    Absolutely pathetic. Its like they are just hoping the Force and WSR will just go away. There has been more advertisement for this weeks Force game than any other rugby match Ive ever heard seen inside Australia, it eclipses all the Wallaby advertising too. Theroar just doesnt want to give Twiggy and his new tournament any respect because deep down they know their teams are stuck in a competition no one watches or cares for anymore. All those Roar fans are probably really really bitter that they arent apart of this Rugby Revolution!

    Not to be unexpected though. It's only really the West that is reporting on it and the ignorance over there over what was going on during the cutting saga made it pretty clear very little made its way over.

    Oh & self interest, RA/ARU have only started to get stick once the consolidation of players experiment failed and the teams left didn't improve as expected.

    Or read G&GR and rugby.com.au or watch Foxtel's rugby programs?

    Is Brett McKay really that incompetent that he can't type the words Western Force News into an internet search engine? Piss poor excuse which in reality is Brett being too lazy to even look. Pretty sad from a so called journalist.

    To be fair to Brett he writes articles for the RA's media site Rugby.com.au. Nothing from the other journos on this and the axing of Penrith.

    Wayne Smith has lost his thunder. Obviously Clyne has somehow got him on a string. I wonder if its because he wasnt allowed into any of the news conference rooms and has been shunned from any inner RA fluffy gossip or exclusive scoops. He was doing really well untill the last load of utter sh*t.

    All the journos in this country lack that killer instict, its no wonder all the rugby journalism in this country is so mindnumbingly boring. Its a total snooze fest reading all the poorly written rugby stuff online. Ive kinda stopped reading general Australian rugby news, it has no bite.

    Don't go on to the Green and Gold news if you have high blood pressure.

    Missing Link has accused WA Rugby people and other folk from WA of preventing the Rebels from signing a sponsor, that Force supporters are stirring up propaganda on this forum, that there is no ASIC investigation amongst other things. Perth Girl and others have some stamina for dealing with that twat.

    Wamberal is a relic who wants to go back to the 80s.
