    Before a trial match? Great publicity.............

    Its a trial match Dessie!!

    They just did a nice peice on the Williams brothers and Fox said that was the reason Wolfie wasnt interviewed.

    I cant understand it.

    Seems stupid to me, we should be doing all we can to get attention before the trial not playing it down.

    Our media manager is right onto this one,,,, lets have no media, why do we need the media manager.

    Please we are absolutely hopeless at marketing and media.

    Look at the Rabbits, they ban poker machines then sign up a casino as a sponsor....allpositive media and again they are "positively" portrayed in the media...we are light years behind

    Not sure if it's true but I think I read something last week about a self imposed media ban by David Williams.

    So in 2009 when he was having an average year, the cries were "he has to stop doing all the media stuff and concentrate on his footy"

    Now when he is doing just that, that isn't good enough either

    tough crowd ...

    I mean fair dinkum, can anyone do anything right?

    Give them a break they have their reasons and after Wolfie has had a year off with injuries they probably want his head on football rather than TV interviews.

    Exactly.  Many here were saying he should forget the media at that point.

    Not so with me.  Wolfie is one of our best media attractions, so he should be promoted and accessible to media.  I don't know about who is against the Wolfman doing media stuff, although I think it is the club who told him to desist, but I'm heartily sick of us not being featured in the mainstream press.  No wonder we don't have a sponsor.  Just where is our profile?  I think the owners need to put the broom through the promotions and sponsor dept and get someone in who does know how to do the job.  We have a wonderful brand, we are winners and at the forefront of the game.  What is the problem?

    Im sure he can play well and be in the media. 2008 rings a bell...........

    We need exposure to get a major sponsor... putting media bans in place is stupid.. Fox Sports made the club look amatuerish today.

    Its all about perception.

    How hard would it be to just say that Wolfman was unavailable and wheel out some other player, rather than coming out saying he has a media ban.

    He didn't do a lot of media in 2008. 

    I'm disappointed in a media bans.  I can understand if the player didn't want to do any media but a decent media guy would be getting our players out there.  As has been discussed by plenty of people in this thread, unfortunately we are in the dark ages.  We have too many old school footy heads in the place.

    I'd rather he score 20 tries and no media than 10 tries and 10 interviews.
    Yes, he may be a great talking head & funny as but he's paid to play football first and foremost. No one complained ( well I'm sure some did ) about our siege mentality in 2008. If he or the powers that be say no media at the moment ie pre season, so what  - it'd only be a snippet after a story on the Bunnies, Dragons or Bulldogs - why waste the time unless it's gonna be a lead story.
