Re: The Chronicle website carried a Falcons story!

The news room at the Chronicle and Journal now boasts a large screen clocking how many "hits" online stories are getting. This is all that now matters both in news and sport coverage.

Had a drink with former Journal colleagues last week to mark the closure of Thomson House where I went to work 50 years ago next month. What few "journalists" now remaining have moved to new offices in Eldon Square.

Remember the time when the Falcons was covered by Duncan Madsen (Ex - Gosforth and Scotland hooker) for the Chronicle and Alan Hedley for the Journal? Such coverage will never return.

Oh, and the Journal circulation is now just 10,500 a day. The future is bleak for print.

Sorry for the offf-pitch groany moany, but just to confirm the struggle Smithy is having. The Rugby Paper may annoy at times, but at least it takes our game seriously.

On a more positive note, I am starting to look forward to the play-offs!
