    Quoting Media Articles.

    Just a thought

    but if we are going to quote an article from a newspaper or website and there isnt a direct quote from a RugbyWA or Western Force staff member or player. Or it isnt from a RugbyWA Official Media Release we should use the word **SPECULATION** in the Title of the thread.

    this was we can all treat it with the contempt it deserves.

    Nice idea, but i don't think so. I don't think we want the word SPECULATION titling every other article, esp when one reads it it becomes obvious that is what it is. You could choose to use the thread icon to indicate such or if you have an altenate icon suggestion I can add it in?

    You'd have to think that if a journo does not use "sauces" or whatever it is because they have been told something factual - unless it is Harris or Growden. Maybe they want to hide their sauce. As you said, if it's speculation it becomes pretty obvious that that's what it is.

    I would just suggest taking media articles with a grain of salt minus an official statement

    There is quite clearly someone at RWA that takes calls from these muppets and tells them what's going on. Someone needs to shut them up.
