The true evil is West coast flogs coming on here and trying to convince us that the WA media is fair and balanced towards Freo .
I would suspect your hatred towards them is due to the times they have nothing positive to write about

Currently Freo had a great win over Geelong hence the positive media

The non W.A media is the true evil

Utter nonsense. Victorian media is much more balanced than the local sycophants.
You just don't like the east coast media because they don't blow smoke up WC's ass 24/7 like the local media do.
That biased media thread on your board is comedy gold.
 

Kapow!!!

I suspect that is more what you want to believe rather than seeing the trends counter to that belief.

Nah,
The non-WA media is ignorant, but not malicious.

The WA press has few balanced commentators. Most are puppets with strings pulled by power brokers.
The level of vitriol by the West and subhumans like Hagdorn and Hardie has been disgraceful.
Surprisingly, Langdon is fairly balanced.

It’s like the Eagles supporters think just because their team wins they know something about football and even worse anyone else cares!
Oh soooooo much this,
As you say they genuinely believe their opinion carry’s more “weight”
Lol
Just continues to confirm how their football team gives them an inflated sense of self.

What’s more with ross it’s definitely hate.
They might carry on “I hope they sign him up for 10 years blah blah blah but they all genuinely would love to see him fired.
For a supporter base that’s been very spoiled for football success they sure do get but-hurt easily
😂

Why do so many of them want to offer up third world solutions for a club they don’t support. Langdon at least pulls them up on it to determine that they are generally either Eagles or St Kilda supporters. Rosco is useless... has no idea...Club is going nowhere...time for Sumich already...

A lot of the Vic media don’t understand the level hate and vitriol. From their perspective the club is about par for their performance.

The panel on On the Couch tonight seemed baffled that the media have "gotten personal" with Ross. Brown said "it's hilarious they're trying to drive him out of town". That's not the first time VIC media have mentioned how rubbish the WA media have been. Dermott Brereton called them Eagles-centric and trying to shake the tree last week.

Caroline Wilson saying on Classified that Peter Bell will be the CEO. You have to wonder if Rosich didn't try and perform a powerplay by giving Bell the contract extension, but it seems Bell has out-maneuvered Rosich in the Game of Thrones.

Will be interesting to see how it all unfolds from here.

Thats pretty ******* massive. Was that from tonights ep? And is she saying per sources or thats what she thinks?

Edit: Skimmed through Footy Classified, apparently when North went hunting for Bell they were told that Bell would be CEO at Freo next year

Rosich said that he will be CEO next season

Said that Ross will coach too

Don't think Belly is going to be CEO yet, maybe in the future.

Bell as CEO next year, somewhere there is someone having a huge laugh!

He'd want a lot more management on his CV than he has and a postgrad in business would help, to become CEO of a business worth tens of millions per year.
People on here complain about jobs for the boys, holy crap if Peter Bell is CEO of the club next season.

She would have no idea - probably asked her WA expert, based in Melb, brad hardie and ran with it... Bell a long, long , long, long way from ever being the CEO of freo....what expereince has he got in running a business that size?? Happy is footy manager - hope he focuses on that and doesn't try and get ahead of himself, or watch the fans turn on him as quick as they have on Lyon and Rosich, when the wins dry up...

Maybe a succession plan?

Unfortunately that’s just going to galvanize the WA media against us/with the eagles because of the east coast–west coast rivalry.
