    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.

    I am sure there's a few Port supporters out there that think Rucci is brilliant at what he does

    Port supporters don't like anyone who works for SA media that isn't a former Port player. Even then they don't like Kane Cornes.

    So I've noticed Rooch's Sunday morning mouthpiece the Sunday roast is now only an hour long 11-12 and he isn't on it.

    Result of us moving away from 5AA?

    It was good when Rowie was doing it. The Sunday Roast was just that, Rowey either talking up how we'd win the flag or that we were all rubbish, and had callers call in to argue with him and call him a flog.

    Was mildly entertaining and the best use of Rowey's "skills"

    Another Rucci classic today

    He writes an article stating that Port players are going to create a call centre to call lapsed members to get them to renew their memberships, but then totally contradicts himself by claiming that Port's membership sales are going fantastically well this year.

    So if things are going so well then why is the club resorting to putting the players on the phone begging lapsed members to renew?

    Seems to me that 2 years out of the finals might be starting to hurt their membership sales.

    So I can expect a call... as last time they did this, they contacted those who bought a Port home slowdown ticket....

    Might give them my thoughts on China lol.

    Yes that was the best show.
    If the crows played Saturday and we won he was always so happy and the show was fantastic.
    I remember calling a couple of times talking up the crows and it was an easy prize of movie passes or something along those lines.
