The West Australian; the paper of the state who for the first time in history saw a player from a team there become a dual Brownlow winner, but ofc, more space needs to be dedicated to the results of a fake poll.
Thank you to the Herald Sun for providing the cover Fyfe deserves.

#Fyfe declares determination win third #Brownlow ...
鈥淚 hope one day to be good enough to be a front page lead in The West.鈥

In reply to @bam_123_
This is incredibly disappointing @AnthDeCeglie Why does the Herald Sun celebrate Fyfey more than his home state newspaper? @westaustralian
 
Just in case anyone had any doubt about the bias of WA media 馃檮
 
In reply to @bam_123_
The West are campaigning for a WCE drug cheat to be pardoned (let that sink in) - that definitely deserves 2/3 of the front page over Fyfe
 
 
Given the Rioli yarn is based on a cooked-up internal poll that really could have run anytime, anywhere, this really is a telling editorial call. Can鈥檛 let those PR obligations to the Budgies slip, I guess.
 
In reply to @bam_123_
What a joke, the West is a disgraceful newspaper, should be totally ashamed!
 
In reply to @bam_123_
one of the reasons i've stopped buying it, the other reason is what's between the front page and the back
 
 
 
#TheWest is THE WORST....!!

2/3鈥檚 of West Aussies = 600 FANS鉂

Such a childish group of journos that operate & choose headline stories mainly out of SPITE & BIAS..
Fake News isn鈥檛 factual & informative reporting worthy of front page news 馃う鈥嶁檧锔

Time to fold up this rag for good.
 
In reply to @bam_123_
This West cover tells you everything you need to know about the WA football media. Disgraceful
 
This comes as no real surprise, yet makes me angrier the more I think about it and see it! @westaustralian 馃が
 
In reply to @bam_123_
I feel sorry for the good journalists who work there. I know a couple, and they are as frustrated as the rest of us. Very sad.
 
In reply to @bam_123_
while we're on the topic of the West's cover choices, these two are from the last few weeks. no disrespect meant to Mainy, but it's an interesting comparison. pic.twitter.com/swH11mEo57

is killing itself off. Good job. Waste of ink. #FakePoll
 
In reply to @bam_123_
That cover hasn鈥檛 aged well at all, and it is only lunchtime.
 
The Herald Sun in Melbourne schooling the chumps at The West on how to do a front page for a special moment in sports history.
 
In reply to @bam_123_
More support and coverage from a Victorian paper. @westaustralian are embarrassing and unprofessional.
 
In reply to @bam_123_
Imagine if a WCE player had achieved this! @westaustralian is an absolute rag and a biased one at that. Poor journalism, typos, abysmal content. No wonder circulation is in decline #NatFyfe #BrownlowMedal
 
In reply to @bam_123_
It's time that @AnthDeCeglie @westaustralian just come out and change the @westaustralian name to the WesternEagle newspaper. Then there will be no doubt that the newspaper is a subsidury of @WestCoastEagles. Poor form @AnthDeCeglie.

In reply to @bam_123_
Poor form from @westaustralian and this from and Eagles fan!
 
It's actually pretty amazing that a pointless poll about something we still don't know the whole story of and for someone yet to receive his penalty can trump a Brownlow Medal! #onlyinwa

Amber, you have nailed it once again my friend 馃憦馃徑
 
In reply to @bam_123_
Was wondering if they would just go positive and celebrate Fyfe or find a way to take some pot shots at Freo, didn't expect them to push it to the side and not even be main headline.

This is why I'll never buy the West Australian. Can't even give a dual Brownlow medallist the coverage he deserves. Meanwhile the Victorian paper on the right. #foreverfreo
 
A fake poll to help an Eagles player who clearly broke the rules gets more space on the front page than the dual Brownlow medalist.
This is becoming embarrassing. 馃う馃徑鈥嶁檪锔
 
In reply to @bam_123_
People still buy this paper?
 
In reply to @bam_123_
I'm not sure why all the outrage. It has been a long time since the media in this state (or perhaps any state) has been neutral or value free. It does what it needs to do to sell its product to the biggest market. Solution? Don't buy it. Yes I am a Freo supporter
 
 
In reply to @bam_123_
Who would have thought most readers of a WA paper would want an Eagles player to return? Staggering result
 
In reply to @bam_123_
I moved from Vic to WA in 1987. Before I left I was told Perth is a great place to live except for the newspaper鈥檚 鈥業t is the only place in the world where you can buy tomorrow鈥檚 paper today with yesterday鈥檚 news in it鈥. And for 32 years this still has not proven to be wrong.
 
In reply to @bam_123_
I'm a biased oneyed eagles supporter but having read the stories in the actual edition it may have been a deadline issue because there was no reports other than the red carpet. Also lets not forget Patrick Cripps whom is also a west australian that had a fairly good showing too
 
Compare the pair. Good on the Vic paper for giving Nat the praise he deserves!
 
The crap Dockers supporters have to put up with every day from @westaustralian 馃檮馃檮馃檮
 
 
Well this front page is looking stupider and stupider isn't it @westaustralian! Even recent Rioli news notwithstanding, you couldn't give Fyfe the whole front page!?!?! (I'm not even a Dockers supporter)
 
 
In reply to @bam_123_
you mean like last week in the @theheraldsun when they had the three victorian teams glossy poster except for gws 馃
 
In reply to @bam_123_
Fucking flog of a newspaper!!! Should be ashamed of themselves!!!!
 
In reply to @bam_123_
That鈥檚 a Brownlow special wrap around, what鈥檚 on the actual front page?
 
In reply to @bam_123_
That is quite pathetic from West Australian. No wonder I never buy their paper.
 
In reply to @bam_123_
That鈥檚 disgraceful!
 
In reply to @bam_123_
Wow. From a South Aussie.
 
honestly baffling that rioli鈥檚 fake news poll has managed to take up half the front page this morning in the west!! ahahah spell me fella! #kingfyfe 馃挏
 
This is the type of cunt who wins a million dollars but whinges that it wasn鈥檛 2.

#fuckyou
 
A disgrace, but no surprise.
 
7west media is a joke! the ridiculous coverage of the Brownlow, Mick Malthouse insane and embarrassing rambling that had Adrian Barich looking on incredulously and then this. The pole by the way had 66% wanting him penalised with a further 13% wanting him banned for life pic.twitter.com/3vU0LvlmRC
 
Again gutter press from on he鈥檒l of a biased newspaper @westaustralian. I realise it not the Eagles fault but please a little more balance in the local media wouldn鈥檛 go astray. @abcperth @6PR @9NewsPerth @10NewsFirstPER @7NewsPerth then again pigs might fly.
 
The West Australian: still ticked off that Nat #Fyfe was named All Australian Captain, instead of some guy from the #weflyasone . 馃槫馃槫
 
Fair tweet. Good call. @westaustralian Pretty poor 馃槒

Well said Amber and I would never ever had thought I would be praising the HS.
 
In reply to @bam_123_
Considering he won it in a team of spuds and polled votes when they lost you wonder how he has been adjudged the 'best' but thats probably why he wants to stay. Top dog at a mediocre club. Definitely Willie is more news worthy.
 
In reply to @bam_123_
Hey @westaustralian 2/3 of western Australians would be idiots given Rioli got done again for weed... I鈥檓 not one of the idiots glad to say... you clearly are!
 
In reply to @bam_123_
is typical trash reporting
 
 
In reply to @bam_123_
What a joke that paper is??? And then there is the WA media that cry fowl over Vic bias???! #boycottwestAustralian

So true, The West Australian is disgusting!

Lol they鈥檙e literally going bankrupt. Kerry is burning his private fortune keeping them alive.

Sport isn't news anyway. Back page motherfuckers!
 
In reply to @bam_123_
Totally agree. Shire paper.
 
Being a two time brownlow medalist is obviously not as important as protecting someone that fucked with their drug sample 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檧锔
