    Surely Lachie Murdoch's kid is old enough for their own plaything.

    A Perth footy team would be perfect.

    The News Ltd propaganda exercise is some next level bullsh*t. Talk about desperate.

    Paul Kent: the gift that keeps giving.

    I saw him not so long ago in a cafe at Commonwealth St (opposite Central Station) with a coffee in one hand and mobile phone in the other, laughing at something (he may've been talking to Uncle Rupert for all I know). Wasn't sure what you would say to him in a situation like that.

    Do you really think Kent is going to divulge the real reason when he works for the organisation that is responsible for that?

    And that's the reason there was no mention on the Offsiders of the record NRL deal with nine the week it happened.

    Once again, I repeat what I mentioned earlier why the article is complete dribble (but yet many will get sucked into it because of the catchy headline to bait people).

    Headline of the article by James HOoper:

    Nek minnit (buried at the end of the article).....

    The word 'but' used as a marker to justify the load of crap preceding that sentence


    This 'contradictory sentence' pattern is VERY typical and have seen it used in many Telegraph articles.

    This.

    And loved your example you used below. Good work, and the hypothetical you said below is absolutely no different from what Hooper exhibited in his article

    :lol:

    :lol:Of course not.

    I just hope someone from Triple M (highly unlikely, as they have plenty of News Ltd hacks working for their RL coverage) has the courage to confront Kent one-on-one on this issue. My bet being Sterlo (given he recently confronted Kent off-set not long ago at Fox Sports) or Mark Geyer (given that the two had a history going back to when they were both playing in the Central Coast RL comp during the mid-90s).

    I commend Ryan Girdler on his response, but wish he went 'a bit more for the jugular' at Kent rather than make a passive 'don't you realise there's still 2 more years to go in the tv rights' statement. It's going to be a matter of time before breaking point is reached and someone is going to up the ante.

    Anasta and Gaz had Newscorp buttplugs inserted recently.

    Anasta? What would he know other than receiving nice, healthy 'unknown bonuses' back in 2002? Unknown my arse...
