No media bias: For every negative Power article, we run at least 0.2 negative Crows articles

DAN SCHMIDT

SHOWDOWN WEEK: It’s often stated that there is a media bias in South Australia when it comes to our AFL football sides, particularly from those ever-whinging POWER fans. Whilst that may be true for South Australia’s leading satirical news source, The Advertiser, we at the Adelaide Mail completely deny favouring the far superior Adelaide Football Club in our reporting in any way.

Looking through the Adelaide Mail story archives, anybody can see that we often run negative articles about the Adelaide Crows like this one, and also the odd negative Port Power article like this one, or this one, or this one, or this one, or this one, or this one, or this one, along with several others.

“Completely fair and balanced sports reporting”

Adelaide Mail

Unlike Tom “Tenuous Simpsons Gif” Richardson of InDaily, or Kane “Web Troll” Cornes from “South Australia’s Home of Sport and Static” Victorian owned SEN 1639, we at the Adelaide Mail never take a one sided approach to reporting on South Australian football. We’re always equally happy to have a friendly light-hearted dig at our beloved Adelaide Crows, just as much as we are willing to relentlessly bully, degrade and borderline-slander Port Adelaide Football Club (est. 1996) and their very few fans.

It is, in our opinion, this unbiased approach to sports reporting that makes Adelaide Mail the most reputable sports media outlet in South Australia.

Adelaide Mail wish the very best of luck to both sides as they gear up for the Showdown this weekend when the mighty Crows take on that other abhorrent excuse for a football team wearing an Aldi version of the Collingwood jersey, mainly so articles like these don’t make us look like fools if the most likely match outcome occurs.
