Hit it on the head.I do all I can to avoid anything Cornes says/writes , however his over the top headline seeking comments keep getting through the “blocks” I may be on my own but he actually puts me off the game , does absolutely nothing to make me want to watch footy. Besides the game been the most confusing, frustrating and unpopular it has ever been , we have a huge amount of media that the general public don’t seem to like or respect .
IMHO the game Is in more trouble then it’s ever been , I know bush leagues who once had 3rds don’t even have a seconds team now , clubs continue to fold and leagues that once had 10 plus clubs now have 4 teams .
Fans have stopped going and the majority of my footy fanatic mates, now basically only watch there own teams games , its another issue that appears to contribute to footys downfall and that’s the commentators nowadays , so many fans again don’t seem to like .
Were in trouble when the likes of Robbo and Wheatly are the “ best“ in the business , to me the general attitude of the media is completely wrong for the game , 90% of the time they are reporting on the negatives of the game , it just gets so tiresome .
In 10 years I’ve gone from watching most games , our games a second time , a few footy type shows I.e on the couch to pretty much not watching any game other then our own and no tv shows what so ever . If it wasn’t for catching up with the Tiger faithful at the games I doubt I’d go every week now.
Feel exactly the same.
And If I wanted negativity, I’d rather get my dose here
