Geez....

Not a fan of this guys journalism at all but this is pretty toxic. Bunch of keyboard heroes twisting the knife in.

One thread on depression, another collectively laying the boot into this bloke how sad his life is. Hypocritical
He might well have some issues mentally but he’s made the decision to be a public figure in the brutal AFL world of sports ‘reporting’ and therefore is open to ridicule if he ‘reports’ rubbish.

We all just want truth and facts.

Everyone is sick and tired of this New Idea magazine style gossip ‘reporting’ in the AFL.

It’s out of control and young Tom is leading the charge.

He wants to be recognised as ‘ breaking news reporter’.

That’s fair enough. But if you’re going to unleash a barrage of made-up fantasy rubbish day in day out...then it’s open to judgement.

It’s our job as punters who consume footy news to highlight this rubbish until such time he gets the sack or leaves the industry on his own accord.

Here’s one I witnessed first hand. About 6-8 Sunday nights ago I had an MRI on my knee at a place in Richmond opposite the Epworth. While I was waiting in Reception Tom walks in (his hair looked even more dishevelled than it does on TV). He went up to the receptionist and said, “I’m Tom Browne from Channel 7. Do you have any AFL footballers undergoing scans here?”
This is a fantastic thread. Keep it going.

The above post is his career in a nutshell. Nothing but an absolute ambulance chaser, scraping the bottom of dumpsters looking for stories.

I remember at Etihad stadium this year after a fight broke in the crowd after the game had finished, Browne literally ran from the other side of the ground looking for a scoop trying to interview anyone he could. No one gave him anything, and he walked off sulking and then proceeded to make sh!t up about what happened in his news report.

Has anybody seen a movie called the room.
To the uneducated its cult film because the film is so bad its kind of funny.
tom browne is to journalism what tommy wiseau is to acting.

On the other hand is that fair, the room is actually liked by some people.
I've got it hes nickelback. Actually because of their long and storied contribution to memes ill give nickelback a pass.

I actually got it hes meat loafs grand final performance.

What old mate TB forgets is that the fooking fans are the custodians of the game ,not some manscaped fooker who thinks his tweets are donaldtrumpesque. Every fooker knows that these so called reporters get all of their fooking "scoops" off bigfooty.
I would rather check the expiry date on my yoghurt than listen this prick.
