I have thought long and hard about the media and its perception of the West tigers and in a bigger picture the nrl.
I think the issue with with modern reporting revolves around the need to produce OPINION pieces. Reporting on the whole has moved away from fact and now value a select few opinions on the majority of subjects.
As the few need to compete among themselves they tend to invent massive issues over small stuff just to gain a viewing edge.
This also allows them to trott out the opinion piece card when they are proven wrong.
I personally think its lazy reporting and it has to be damaging to club relations.
Anyway would love peoples thoughts on how to change the narrative around us as a club and maybe the nrl as a whole.
