Neil Francis' articles

    I'm just an ordinary Joe Soap when it comes to rugby. Don't know the nitty gritty rules. Don't know difference between a ruck and a maul. I'm ok with that.
    I like reading about the game. But Neil Francis. Talk about being self indulgent. Maybe a whole lot of laziness too. Every time I see an article of his half of it is sbout the NBA or American football. I don't actually know which American game he's on about as I simply scroll down past the half way mark where he talks about Irish rugby.
    Is he a journalist or a columnist? Is he trying to impress with attendance at American sports games?

    How is this fellow employed as a sports writer?
    Does anyone actually read the introduction of his articles ( roughly half the content) or do you skip to half way down? Or do you just skip him entirely?

    A columnist.

    The problem is not Francis, it's that people no longer understand the difference.

    Call me cynical, but two threads in one week referencing Franno's articles from accounts we've never seen before here.....

    Is poor aul Franno trying to drive up the clicks?
