Thought this was an interesting article considering the decline in the standards of mainstream sports journalism as a reaction to pay-per-click internet advertising, search engine optimisation, and most importantly the ambivalence of the audience as to whether there is any truth to the story.

It's pretty clear that this has been the case, but at the same time the internet has made it much easier to seek out quality sports journalism from a variety of sources if that's what you're looking for.

I personally don't see anything wrong with the rumour mill and fabricated stories (as long as they don't result in a material loss to anyone) since they are part of the fun of following football.
