Melbourne Victory fans pick a fight with News Ltd

Melbourne Victory fans are hot under the collar over claims of bias, negative reporting, and editorial beat-ups in the Herald Sun.

Fans at Sunday night’s Melbourne Victory vs New Zealand Knights A-League match mounted a peaceful protest against the Herald Sun over claims of bias, negative reporting, and editorial beat-ups.

The Herald Sun, remember, had trouble digesting the news that the Telstra Dome had signed a deal with Fairfax. And you wouldn’t use the words “cool”, “calm” or “collected” to describe the response to the Melbourne Racing Club, hosts of the Caulfield Guineas, after it signed a deal with The Age.
