I'll go again for the third time.

Leeds-Live in particular is absolutely awful. Poorly laid out, advert laden and not written well at all. Usually with a grabby clickbait title and no substance. Just rehashed from various other social media sources.

RL journalism is truly dire.

Click bait rubbish. Matt Shaw, Aaron Bower and Rugby League Live in particular.

RLL
YEP
Leeds Live
Any of these sites, which I believe are all owned by the same media company? The sites are unreadable. Just full of adverts.

So what do we get? We get a click bait article. Full of rubbish on a rubbish website full of adverts. Lucky us.

I hope these journalists don't get paid much.
YEAH LIKE WHATEVER!

If you want to avoid clickbait - and who doesn't? - the answer is pretty simple: Get your hand in your pocket and buy a real newspaper or subscribe online. If you don't even pay peanuts you'll be lucky to get Monkeys. Agree with much of what has been said, but only fair to point out that Matt Shaw has broken nearly every Rhinos related story over the last couple of years. Will be interesting to see whether that continues. It could be that his source has moved on.

One example that comes straight to mind is Sezer. Was talking about that months before it happened. I certainly wouldn't lump him in with the dreaded ITK, or whatever it's called.

Mmm!also the one who reported that Rohan’s first interview was “dominated by Mylers personal issues”?
As far as Sezer goes even a broken clock is right twice a day!Journalist?hardly!

There are plenty of other examples. I'm just not wasting my Saturday finding them. He was certainly very well thought of at League Express and Martyn Sadler (editor) was gutted when he left. I was also disappointed to read the headline you refer to. Poor stuff. Just trying to point out that it's not all black and white and there is some grey area in this discussion.

The sport is a small local game - why do we expect serious journalists to cover it?

Sadler's last tweet was about how Hull were missing Gale against St Helens!!

IMO Shaw is about as good as it gets closely followed by John Davidson.
