    Good Journalist? Telegraph hack?

    Personally I think this guy is one of the best journos going around.

    Yes, be outraged. He works for the Daily Terror, fine, but do people really think the Herald is that much better? Buzz represents everything that is wrong with news limited. But so what.

    Keep this in mind: Kent has the respect of people like Johnny Lewis and Matty Johns (who is a whole lot more cerebral than people know). Do you have their respect?

    And for those of you who deigned get fox, he's been instigating the most interesting things on TV to do with rugby league.

    People militantly disagree. But basically they are dumb shit!. Convince me! I'm not into fanbo ism, other than when it comes to Adam Reynolds..

    Agree with OP and have for a long time. He gets on his high horse and misses the point occasionally but I like that he calls out bad behavior and poor decisions from all quarters.

    I don't always agree with him. I haven't forgotten or forgiven his disgraceful gargling of Rupert's corporate line after Dave Smith shut Fox out a few years ago.

    Steals other people’s opinions and passes them off as his own. He doesn’t seem to like the game at all and just criticises.

    He does occasionally make a good point though but they’re generally few and far between.

    I'd go as far as to describe him as the Bradman of journalism

    He's got the respect of Matty Johns - do you have that?

    Kent is like Picasso or Pavarotti, just a master at what he does.

    Matty Johns thought Matt Head and Milton Thaiday were Origin calibre players. It’s fair to say his judgment is abit f**ked.

    He pushes the News Ltd agenda.

    Steve Mascord has the games interests at heart, so when he critics the sport it's without an agenda.

    He is the best journo going around.

    I find you negative creatures like people at the zoo. You laugh but you don't really know why you're better than the monkeys.

    Exactly, Smith was great for league. Yet Kent and his cronies ran him out of the game....how can he be good for the game after that.

    Exactly so he can remain relevant. Has to fill an hour everyday for NRL360 and write for his newspaper, makes up crap, or exaggerates, attacks people who have no forum to return serve, pushes the company agenda etc etc......all in the name of unbiased balanced journalism.....grub.

    On the very, very rare occasion he says something positive about the Game he does it through gritted teeth, almost as if it genuinely hurts him to do so.
