    That Norton fellow on 5AA
    Dom Cassisi

    The media breakdown basically represents the general greater numbers of Crows supporters in the community.

    Also the Port flogs are given free reign to tear into the Crows, Cassisi, Kane and Rooch the obvious examples.

    Rowie says one bad word about Port and he's hauled in front of the boss and given a talking to.

    Port lose a major sponsor and Rooch writes an article on how successful their China strategy has been in gaining corporate support?

    Interesting pembathy gets way more from newscorp for writing his 1 article or so a week than rooch gets for being near a full-time employee writing a ton of garbage.

    As you say, pay peanuts...

    Unfortunately that is the case with most of the media. Tredders is one of the few willing to be honest.

    No issue with upsetting the Apple cart... but rooch just trolls & tells outright lies, which is just to seek attention rather than report true newsworthy issues.

    I think Pembathy is editor of the Sunday Mail which would boost his salary

    I remember him saying he was disgusted at the effort and felt physically sick on aa when port lost to gws a few years back when primus was coach. He singled out players too.

    We have Carlton Draught as a sponsor.

    One of the world biggest brewers being owned by SABMiller.

    I never said Tim Ginever was "mean"
    I notice you failed to mention Kornes and all the other Port affiliated commentators pointed out here
    Seems that argument has fallen over
    Either way
    Makes no difference to how bad Rucci is at his "job" - and in an industry that requires respect to get the "news" first it seems he has none from anybody !

    And now the flog is writing a column on what Grant Thomas thinks about Taylor Walker /Sloane captaincy situation

    Another non event article by a non event journo quoting a failed coach who sacked Malcolm Blight

    Seriously
    What the **** is this tool on ?

    I don't like reading Rucci's articles but his hatred for the AFC is really showing. In this mornings Portvertiser, he thinks only he knows best and that Adelaide is making mistake after mistake. He implies Barlow bypassed Adelaide when in truth Adelaide may have only had a passing interest in him. Apparently Riccuito is the kingmaker, no one wants to come here so we are hiring from within.

    PAFC is not listed for Rooch.

    But didn't they pay for his trip to Shanghai, which he reported on in a favourable way?

    Does anyone understand Rucci's latest offering "No Gibbs, no Barlow and a new football chief from within — perception and reality clash for Crows"?

    Perception should not be that Rucci is a good journalist.

    Reality is that he is a terrible writer but has a big enough audience, even if much of it is driven by his trolling articles, to allow him to keep his job.

    (Am I doing it right?)

    He's having a bit of trouble finding a crows-negative-spin-of-the-day at the moment?
