    I was just sitting down watching the footy tonight. Up came an add for Foxsports NRL Fantasy Leage.

    During some screen shots of the Fantasy Football GUI showed a player selection with a MANLY JERSEY! The name that was associated with that jersey?????????

    Baroom Hero.

    Foxsports, GO **** YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!

    Watch closely next time it comes up BE. Its the add with Craig Wing walking into the cleaning closet. Right after he doesnt that a whole heap of **** comes up showing the comp on the screen. The image is a manly jersey with the players name being Baroom Hero.

    I don't think it needs to be stopped. I think its just another piece in the jigsaw puzzle that proves news limited are trying to skew and influence the opinion of people when it comes to rugby league.

    What other competition in the world has to contend with such BS and having 3 or 4 clubs owned by the same company that owns the NRL. Why am i paying money to watch, buy merchandise ect when bias is so ****ing obvious.

    Its like im being ripped off. My club is rorted because they aren't owned by the company with a financial interest in the world greatest sport.

    If they can pull Brett Stewart ad, they can pull this one too.

    If it was a News Ltd club, we all know what they would do.
