    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.

    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?

    I think so. It makes no sense
    I really can't work out his point. I understand the perception vs reality concept, but I really can't see the point he is making other than perception is the acutal reality of the AFC. In which case, why write the article? I could understand writing the article if perception is not reality, but not the other way around.

    So bascially, you are saying that I am looking for meaning where there is none.

    The guy is a tool but that article had some truth to it.

    The perception is that our premiership window is open and we have a group of players and a coach who can win a flag.

    The reality is we are an above average club that doesnt bottom out, makes the finals most years but dont have the right mix to win a flag.

    And yes I feel dirty for seeing some merit in a Rucci story.

    That article is very poorly written, I have no idea the point he is trying to make but have just assumed that it is that the Crows are bad because we didn't get Gibbs, Barlow or a footy manager from outside the club. Whilst not a terribly controversial point of view (many on here have stated similar at various times), it conveniently forgets that we didn't want to pay too much for Gibbs (fair enough), Barlow may have wanted a bigger offer than we were willing to pay, and that a better candidate may not have been available / interested.But why give a balanced view I guess, I'm sure the website hits are up

    Nah he's just desperate for someone to fight through the articles celebrating Trump's win to his little article.

    It's Penberthy and I don't think he's the Sunday Mail editor at all.

    I think this thread is beginning to get to him !

    This morning's dose of bilious fantasy does not even make sense.
    It's a demented rant!
    :D
    No doubt embarrassing the other journos while he's at it !
    Keep it up Roach - the more you write the dumber you look

    Interesting that the follow up on the Rucci 'Sloane should be captain says nobody important' article is Tex talking to Capel.

    Sh!t almost spat out my coffee this morning after reading Rucci's article. He actually referenced Adelaide's penalties from the Tippett affair in comparison to the latest GWS scandal, in favour of Adelaide

    You're saying he's saying GWS are more heavily penalised than we were?

    Well, look forward to GWS losing 3 first round and 3 second round draft picks then :drunk:
