    True. But I was thinking on the rugby front. No-one listens to him on the rugby front.

    He is calling the RA out on their bs and is the only eastern states journalist that brings up the issues with the Force on a regular basis. You wonít expect it from Pandaram and co. Robinson does the odd investigative piece every now and then. Growden throws grenades, the odd rumour and then goes quiet for a while.

    Ive been enjoying Alan Jones pieces over the last few years. I think alot of people listen yo him, why wouldnt they either considering Alan Jones is one of the most successful Wallaby coaches ovet the last 30 odd years and right now the Wallabies are terrible which makes his opinion even more valuable it seems. He also shook things up abit when he almost coached the Barbarians to a famous win over Cheika's Wallabies which only proved (in his supporters minds) that he still has a rugby brain, especially when it was the ref that basically beat that Barbarians side, and he made that point very clear, and it was a reasonable one too considering. I actually value his rugby opinion and enjoy the fact he is still fighting and supporting Rugby in WA when pretty much no one else is but Nick Taylor. In terms of east coast journalism he is the only one left pointing fingers at RA and waving the WA flag. Greg Growden has done his usual( as Bakkies rightfully pointed out) throw a grenade and hide for months coward act. Spiro did it and dissapeared for years so atleast you can say Growden has bigger balls than Spiro, but Alan Jones does it on a weekly basis and has a bigger audience and that is testament to the man.

    Whatever his poltical beleifs are I dont really care, but when the man talks rugby I listen.

    He posts the same repetitive shit over and over without any real solutions and it becomes so boring no one listens anymore, actually you Spartan know the type more than most .

    Wests Scarborough 1st Grade juggernaut has played finals rugby each and every year since its inception and continues this remarkable feat yet again this season and unbelievably it's still rolling on.

    Fair enough. Repetitive as Westie posted. The razor witted H G Nelson was on to him early on, labeling him "The Parrot" in 1990.

    I’m interested to know the basis of that statement.

    Like him or loath him Jones has been a great supporter of the Force and Rugby in WA and (as others have said) he is one of the few journalists who has been. He has a large audience and interviewed Hansie a number of times.

    1. If you want a sympathetic ear in the form of a journalist on the East Coast then Jones most certainly isn't it. Widely loathed.
    2. Not that large of an audience. Just a more consistent one featuring more people over the age of 55 than pretty much any other show. His show actually rates 5th or 6th in actual numbers.
    3. He's a cretin. Pure and simple.

    He had Sen. Reynolds on his show while she was getting numbers to have the Inquiry. I donít think that any of the other east coast based journalists interviewed her.

    His articles always appear on the front page of the Australian website which Rugby hasnít had that profile for close to 15 years. Around 2,000 comments in total on his last two articles.

    How about you deal with facts instead of name calling? Irrespective of your political views, he has done more for the game of rugby than you or I ever have and ever will.

    Yes, he’s definitely prolific in his writing and was/is very supportive of rugby in the west. But what good has any of that achieved? The people who have the power to do anything about what he keeps pointing out have cloth ears. That’s what I meant about no-one listening to him.

    I do still think he is a windbag though. The man goes on at length.

    A lot more has come out of his columns than from those in the eastern states media who have said next to nothing.

    How long did Georgina Robinson hold that information for in regards to the RA hiding from the public the Longstaff investigation? Key details such as withholding interviews from key stakeholders that led to an incomplete report.

    This went on while Hawker was Chairman so why did she wait till recently to publish that? Rather than in 2016/17 when the shit was hitting the fan in regards to the RAís behaviour. Instead all we got in the press was board resignations and the worst Chairman in the history of Australian Rugby being appointed.

    Robinson and co also knew about how much money they were throwing at their vanity project. They do read the annual reports.
