    For those of us who hate Murdick, DT and won't get Fox, out of principle, but still want to follow up on Thommo, would you be so kind as to give summations of his game in this thread ;)

    Be interesting to follow his progress while we wait. No braindead critiscism please as we don't want to frighten him off lol.

    Btw I saw on a St Helens forum they are reading Dogs fans reactions on our sites re his signing and commenting on them :grinning: Been with them since he was 11, so this is a huge blow to them. Most wish him well tho.

    I don't have a progress report, just want to agree with your summation of the Murdicks, Smellagraph, and everything associated with them.

    What's the alternatives, SMH and the ABC/SBS. It's like asking which poison do I prefer ricin or cyanide. Since I can watch the Bulldogs on Fox, then I reluctantly chose that poison.

    ABC Radio call is good and gets extra points for not having ads, and for pure entertainment and emotion just follow the match day thread in here.

    I do agree somewhat with part of what you are implying. News networks as a whole are pretty woeful these days. But of a very bad bunch Murdick's mob are the worst, and as any matchday thread on here will prove, it is important when things are going bad to highlight the very worst and hammer into them (I'm looking at you Elliott).

    Australia's media has totally lost its independence and I guess that was inevitable via ownership and globalisation.
    It's so obvious which way the various publishers and broadcasters lean left or right and the associated bias... some of them don't even try to hide it.
    Remember this? It wasn't even an opinion piece - it was the FRONT PAGE!
    And we know what the agenda was too, despite how it was spun.
    Don't get me wrong - I wasn't a fan of the whole Rudd/Gillard/Rudd thing, but that wasn't the reason why this front page was made...

    For fun only, I'll have to disagree with on 2 counts, firstly Elliot is rarely the worst, there are others much worse than him in almost every game. Secondly media wise, ABC is by far the worst, their socialist/communist agenda appears in everything they broadcast, followed very closely by SBS.

    Anyone intending to watch the StHelens games to see Thompson in action should also look out for Morgan Knowles. Only 23, can find the try line and plays back row and hooker.

    Next StHelens match against Warrington on Foxsports 502 at 11.30 am tomorrow, replay 4.30 pm and 11 pm.

    There was also the "Australia needs Tony" headline among others. It's a bit sad that these sources of media don't face penalties for some of the rubbish they spew.

    Don’t get me wrong, this is not a partisan thing for me. I have no love for either team and believe that all pollies simply do what they need to do to keep their jobs. It’s just very hard to find a credible news source these days that either isn’t talking crap or showing a clear bias to one team.

    Bias to one team - did I just describe Soufs?? :-)

    I watch both, take what I can from it and form my own opinion. It can also be very entertaining in a comedic way, for example take the Trump Impeachment, watch CNN and Fox News report exactly the same facts and see them spin it to suite their pre conceived biases, had me in stitches several times.:tearsofjoy:
