    Notice this year they didn't have any warm fuzzy Christmas presents for their fans?

    They're not wrong, they didn't say the chances of winning were 100%. Saying something is unlikely doesn't mean it can't happen and just because something happened, doesn't mean it was a likely outcome.

    Good point.

    Still would be nice for him to be officially told he's not welcome at the club.

    He might not have been officially told, but I reckon he got the message.;)

    We've loosened ties to the Advertiser (through our Domain.com sponsorship) and 5aa (through Triple M). Both being Rucci employers.

    I'm sure he's getting the message.

    It's saying that journalists who run loose with facts on stories, will no longer be tolerated .....and that if the journalist can;t clear message, then the club will go directly to its supporter base via it's own social media platforms

    That simply leaves Rucci to write "opinion pieces" ...which further alienates him and the club

    That said, Caro is an opinion writer as well, and she has no problems getting stories from the Crows, that Rucci can't .....and he lives on the Crows doorstep

    We are talking a whole new level of incompetent journalism. I wasn't aware of this story before. Another gem from the Murdoch press.

    It is speculated Caro gets her Crows-related stories from the AFL, not directly from the club. But at least she has some sources not the zero that Rucci has

    Bad ones from the AFL, good ones from the club I would say. Before Fagan she would only break bad stories about us, after Fagan she now does both.

    From the latest Power press release via Rooch:

    http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/sport...o/news-story/f941740eb2eaa22dce5f67538e765393

    Now there is pay-off from those AFL television packages Port Adelaide produced for China’s biggest network, CCTV, last year. Those live telecasts, full replays, highlight packages and documentaries captured the attention of Chinese mining magnate Sally Zou.



    Doesn't she live in Australia and her kids go to school here?

    If it weren't for Rooch, everyone would have forgotten Port Power even had a game in China

    Interestingly she is the SA liberal party's largest donor, I wonder how Jay feels about her. Perhaps if you don't want to donate to the labour party, but want Jay to like you, you sponsor port.

    "Much is being made of the $3 million the Power is banking ..."

    They haven't "banked " a cent - already they have spent this years and next years million on this years game according to our mate Lockhart Rd :

    "This match is part of Mr Gui's 'Gift to Shanghai', his home town, so it's logical that part of his first year'sinstalment in the three-year deal(paid in advance), and second year no doubt, would go towards theRound 8 project ..."

    Love how this China "news" article is 9 pages in from the back page and after 5 Crows stories !

    Rucci being trolled by sports editors !
    Also I can imagine Roach crossing off days on his calendar to get to "88" days to China so he has a tenuous link to anything Chinese to justify the article !

    Reminds me of this ...

    Rucci is really struggling for a story. 2 page spread on Hamish Hartlett. 33 stories and how's the headlines
    I never felt betrayed by club I love
    Travis is a leader and he's my mate
    New year brings new attitude and playing role

    Love is in the air. He may write about HH all year

    Typical Rucci, once again he has his trusty broom out sweeping any Port mess under the carpet by pretending it never happened.

    Ironically he used to stoke the fire for years about the McLeod and Edwards fued, but when it comes to Port he once again goes into propaganda mode trying to cover up the truth for the betterment of his club.

    I have said it before, he's the SA footy equivalent of Andrew Bolt.

    Andrew Bolt has blind followers who think he is a brilliant journalist. I'm not sure Rucci does.
