    I suppose it's a common thread elsewhere but it looks like it's "us V the rest of the world" on Sunday.

    Todays Courier Mail (sorry can't see the story to publish on here) inside back page (full page) of crap from this News Ltd Manly hating "Hack" about how the whole of Australia should be supporting the Kiwi's over the hated Manly Sea Eagles.

    It's total rubbish and is the most one eyed piece of writing I have seen for a long time, this bastard must really hate us he hasent stopped writing crap about us for weeks now.

    Probably just jealous because we have a better side that knocked his TWO Queensland sides out of the race.

    For those on Twitter @bendorries[hr]
    And this my letter to the Editor

    Great to see your Sports reporter Ben Dorries at it again, this anti Manly Sea Eagles hatred coming from the Courier Mail is starting to get very tired. There’s a legion of Sea Eagles fans in South East Queensland who are sick and tired of the vitriol coming from this writers pen. We are Queenslanders, we buy the Courier Mail but we are Manly supporters as well and are very proud that our team has made the Grand Final and in a week when we should be celebrating the successes of both sides it’s disappointing to see such hatred coming from Ben’s pen. Perhaps he’s just dirty that we knocked out both of his Queensland sides to progress to the big one. Time to give it a break Ben and celebrate what will be a wonderful game on Sunday afternoon.

    His biased and hatred is clear. I get the Courier delivered to me daily, yesterdays had one or two ok stories,

    But front page had a little box and back page a big write up, on how disgusting it is that Matai and Williams were let of

    "Grand Final Farce" or something is was titled. It was all about Manly hatred for about 3 pages. I enjoyed reading it then trashing it.

    This mornings has back page on Hoppa, big photo, small story then the rest is about McGuire being selected but a Samoan, like anyone cares, he is in the train on squad and extremely unlikely to get a run anyway

    I bet no one at News Ltd tells John Dory to tone his level of vitriol down.

    Love his comments that people should support the Warriors because of young guns .... seriously does this guy even watch games. I think we have a couple of young guns in our team too.

    I'm honestly suprised that the article in question was even published & even more suprised that it was written by someone who is apparently a professional journalist.

    All the more reason to hate Queensland.

    His comments sound a bit fishy to me.;)

    Just registered as a Silvertail. I too am disgusted at the hyperbolic rubbish espoused by Ben Dorries. Here is an email I penned after two weeks ago I read his crap about game attendance's:

    Hi Ben

    Bigotry. It's a word you may not be aware of but one which you should know being a journo and all. Or are you? It would seem after reading your tirade about Manly on the 13th of this month, you really are just another ridiculous writer for the Courier Mail, specialising in hyperbole and state sensationalism, which unfortunately does you no credit as a serious writer. There are two sides to every story and your absolute refusal to present anything to your parochial readership, but what they want to hear, is frankly just too easy. I would really like to discuss this with you, and invite you to a beer over which we might discuss your need to debase blindly anything which is not related to Qld. We need to discuss what journalism really is, and the responsibility of those in the 'profession', to report with responsibility. But I also believe the sports writers for the Courier Mail create way too much hyperbole, mostly designed to create hype and reader's excitement for State of Origin to ignite rage at the games. Such rhetoric makes personal attacks of supporters and players of southern based teams (and those teams only - never Qld), and all I see is unprofessional bias.

    His email is: bdorries@hotmail.com
    But I got no response of course. This guy is an attention seeking imbecile, who gives journalists a bad name. There are a lot in Qld.

    To really make this moron think, I think we need to approach the sports editor with a bunch of complaints. His contact details are:

    Full Name Brian Burke
    Email burkeb@qnp.newsltd.com.au
    Phone (07) 3666 6476
    Fax (07) 3666 6649

    It's about time we used our voice and at least sent some complaints. I'm writing mine next.

    The 'Curious-Male' editor has a soulmate at 'The Daily Bellylaugh' and no doubt at the other downunder 'News of the World' clones, like the 'Hun' in Melbourne.
