    our membership has chosen to go a different direction.
    again, we are not the only source of news.
    stick around, just don't depend on this site to provide links to all football news.

    I believe this thread has run it's course.

    both sides of the argument have been voiced.

    it's not about politics. it's about the Sun abusing TFC. On one hand they run contests and print posters celebrating TFC, while with the other they are bashing TFC supporters in drive by slander... since they can't put it in a full article anymore, they find some stupid way to put it in to "offside" or whatever bullshit they call it, whenever an incident in any sport happens

    that's just not acceptable

    And personally, I'd rather be elitist than accepting of mediocrity

    Is it only a coincidence that the rightmost paper has been banned, the 2nd right paper you want banned, your name and avatar tend to show your affiliation, you don't want to "support" the right wing paper even though other papers (the star) have been much much worse than the two on the chopping block.


    So again, please look at this objectively and get rid of the political slant of this supporter club...This is the type of shit that divides not unifies.
    You are looking into this WAY too much.

    How about a compromise?... lets post all articles here... positive ones we hotlink so that the paper makes money from us and negative ones we copy and paste.... no matter what paper and what author they are a product of

    do our part to eliminate negativity....help make the TFC world all sunshine and fucking lolipops

    I mean what does the post and sun do and the star doesn't? What type of criteria are we following here? I find this absolutely absurd considering the most famous journalist that people like to torch on this board is Kelly, especially since his little essay on Football hooliganism.

    I sense political bias here.
    Dude,

    It was one person making a suggestion about the Sun... I can't stand Cathal Kelly as much as everyone else, and had you been reading the threads... we had a small list of RPBs cancelling their Toronto Star subscription...

    What bias are you talking about? If you feel like making one up to just feel good go right ahead...

    That's garbage. There are entire threads on Wheeler. Talk about selective memory.

    Define people?

    RPB members... other SG members... or people like you that come on this board?

    if you want all sides, go to google news and search "TFC" or "toronto FC".
    we are not in competition with google.

    you really need to read a political thread in the off topic section, and you'll see how closely aligned our ideologies are

    The bias is what this thread is about, one paper has been "banned", another one people are looking to have banned, yet others escape the same treatment?? People have cancelled their subscription and all, but where is the same policy about news sources being posted on here.. I just find that posting the star and not the post is unjustified.

    Do you sit on the RPB leaders Group? Have you gotten a call from Jack on the official stance?

    This is one RPB making a suggestion... don't get your panties all wet. If I say we are going to conquer Buffalo, will you call the FBI?

    no one is saying you can't post a NP article...

    if it's an article, as far as I know you can go right ahead and post it, if it's not done already

    I would, but they have a shit sport section anyway and rarely cover TFC

    it just means it's not included in the official daily news thread

    Two papers
    Both post slanderous articles about TFC/TFC supporters
    one banned/one continuously posted

    Where is the logic in that?

    A ridiculous statements.

    No paper in Toronto has done more to cover TFC than the Star. THAT is why they have not been outright banned on here despite Catheter.

    If it weren't for that coverage, they'd be in the same boat as the Post.

    So you should be complaining to the Sun and the Post as to why their coverage sucks.

    If you want to read their coverage...who is stopping you?

    I love these guys that hop on board well after the fact and instead of finding out the true story, instead they cast dispersions and baseless accusations because we have chosen to exert our right as consumer to support those who support TFC.

    SSG are essential though...

    they help easing the pain after defeats like the one against Seattle, by reminding us that there are uglier things in life

    Why do I have to sit on the RPB leaders group to point out something that is quite obvious which people are tending to ignore, insult or ask others to leave over?

    One person's suggestion last year took out the National Post did it not? Surely everyone did not post at the exact same time saying ban the post last year..


    So please, don't be condescending, it is not a good quality.

    stoked, stfu already

    keep the politics out of football... this nonsense argument you're bringing up isn't reflecting good on yourself, nor the rest of us who are conservative minded supporters here... not posting the Sun is not the same at all, as a prof in a university not considering it or the national post a valid source...

    What in the world are you talking about? The POST doesn't cover sports period... at least not as good as otehr newspapers.

    and that person who made the suggestion was not an RPB member, it was one banner made by him and that was it.

    Go catch some zzz' you have no idea what you are talking about and are only making a fool out of yourself.
