    Too late for me, I refuse to read his verbal sludge.

    If your job is to literally sell the story and you use Herald Sun column space to write a story saying the industry should sell the story about the Eureka rather than actually selling the story I can't say that you're hard done by when being retrenched.

    Only read his articles over the last two years, often twice to try and understand what he was actually trying to say. I was put off by the Shakespeare/ Sage quotes, alliteration and philosophical underpinnings of his articles. Liked the enthusiasm but most of the content was above my head.

    Hopefully he bounces back but he needs an editor/mentor for his writing.

    After seeing HRV plugging Herald Sun on Facebook today I purchased it. Probably the 3rd time I have purchased Hun or any paper this year.

    The equivalent article to the above I complained about was done by Tim O'Connor. The article covered what it needed to. It was moreso from a punting perspective rather than a racing perspective but thats neither here nor there.

    There was also a good lift out in the middle which is why HRV gave it a plug. This is good timing to have the focus on us with Spring Carnival over and the Cranbourne Cup the main gallops meeting.

    It did get me wondering how long something like this is worthwhile in the paper though considering I only bought it because I seen it on Facebook. While I was doing this post and thinking about the changing methods of consuming racing my wife rang me from her nursing home job asking what radio station the races are on haha! The old methods live still!

    I normally just buy it a couple times a year for the nostalgia.

    Herald Sun has a lift out for all major meetings eg Hunter Cup, Vic Cup, VicBred, Breeders Crown. Possibly more but these meetings spring to mind

    Yes, I am 99% sure we pay for them but you would think it is money well spent
    Now as for The Age - they really do seem to have a set against us (historical)
