It is obvious that hacks like Rothfield and Co. Has a story commitment to fulfill and being the off season they find it best rehashing garbage instead of doing what they are paid for and actually tapping into their contacts to unearth new stories. It is also abundantly clear that they (newsltd) is pandering to their mass readership by printing the anti Manly stories. This sells more papers as well as engaging their non paper omline audience. The anti Manly feeling in the News media is because we (Manly) supporters buy more Fairfax papers hence the need to engage us online by printing garbage enraging us to reply. By doing this we increase their online audience. I guess that is what they wanted in the first place. My advice is not to engage with these hacks and don't even give their rubbish any traction on our site. Let them earn our audience.
