    I was discussing this with a Tassie mate, down there they see AFL stories all the time of such ilk.

    We hear about Kyrgios and Tomic all the time.

    Anyone remember the Clarke bashing?

    Lets not cry poor that only League players cop hidings.

    Clarke copped it from ex teammates more so than the media. When Kyrgios and Tomic carry on we don't hear about Tennis and it's horrible culture. The AFL are used as a beacon for their players behaviour, the get nowhere near the criticism the NRL does.

    Purlease Mozza, they are all getting criticised and there is zero difference. RE AFL we hear about as much about AFL up here as they do about Rugby League down there.

    Exhibit A of the low IQ being sucked into this media beat up.

    It all started with the "superleague" war.
    When newscorp looked like being the loser, they only published negative stories about League in an attempt to kill off the sport, and when Fairfax was excluded from dressing rooms after newscorp got the upper hand, they spent years publishing nothing but negative stories.
    We now have heaps of journalists who feel that biting the hand that feeds you is OK, because they have been doing it for years, and it's an easy way to get clicks or reads.
    AFL journalists are all deeply invested in their game and wouldn't dream of trying to kill off the goose that lays the golden eggs. An AFL playing literally needs to rape or kill someone to get bad publicity, and even then they try to minimise it. When that Gary Ablett guy literally gave a young girl a drug overdose that killed her, the big argument in the Melbourne press was over how long that should delay him getting into the hall of fame.
