Just listened to the "Real Footy" podcast.
Jake Nial is your classic melbourne based vic nuffy footy "journo".

Apparently Luke Jackson should take less money and stay at the Demons. Apparently Niall is such a good fortune teller he can see Melbourne in the "premiership window" in 2023 and beyond but Freo wont be..

When Adam Cerra went from Freo to Melbourne that was great. He'd given Freo good service and was entitled to a pay rise "at a big Melbourne club" and to be near his family and friends.

In consecutive days I saw Bontempelli and Pendlebury take a look at their opponent and fumble the ball only to get the “that’s a rare error from the champ.” only to never be brought up again. Then of course it happens to a random Fremantle player and they have to show the replay 3 times and question their courage.

Selwood ducks his head for a free and he’s courageous. Ginnivan drops to his knees for a free and he’s oh so smart. Rhys Mathieson does it and they want to lynch him.

Ha ! Pendlebury gets the Hird treatment. The gushing is nauseous, when either of these two *ed up the silence is/was deafening .

Noticed Pendlebury’s started ducking for frees this year. Obviously inspired by his teammate

'Rare error' and 'rare fumble' are such commentary cop outs. Let's give the guy a compliment when he's ****** up.

'Superstar' player kicks a goal from the boundary line - goal of the year. Random obscure player does the same thing - nobody cares about it.

I stop watching 360 a few years back when Gerald weasel went on and on for months championing the cats to play hard ball with Tim Kelly who had 4 young kids one with an ailment.
At seasons end Brad hill wanted out of freo to fill his pockets and weasel went on the attack at freo going on and on that you can’t keep someone who doesn’t to be there.

Afl.com.au is calling Mitchell Lewis a "megastar".

On national media platforms you have a point to an extent but this is a bad example.

The Age is a Victorian newspaper so of course they focus on their local teams.

Much like the Advertiser is all about the Crows and Port and the West Australian Fremantle and West Coast.

Hey, stop bringing in facts/reasons to their pity party.

Here is some news - Media outlets pander to local audiences, have agendas, generally only know the ‘stars’, do very little analysis and are only interested in generating clicks.

Just don’t watch/read their click bait nonsense or stick to the biased media in their own states if it upsets them

Geelong is Gerard's kryptonite ..........he could walk in and find Dangerfield in bed with his wife and he would probably tuck them in.
