Triple M’s Jamie Soward believes the media bagging of Maroons debutant Tim Glasby was really poor taste.
“It was the most disrespectful piece of journalism that I have seen towards a player,” said Soward, on Triple M Dead Set Legends. Listen to the full audio below.
Tim Glasby has been dismissed as a "NRL Nobody" by NSW media after his surprise Maroons call-up and was lambasted by a News Corp article on Tuesday which produced a scathing analysis of his club performances for the Storm.
The hard-working Storm prop says it was a media backlash he never expected but isn't dwelling on it.
"I have heard something about it but it doesn't really worry me to be honest," he said.
"It's not about stats. They tell a bit of a story but there is a lot more that goes on behind the scenes.
"I get told to do a job each week at Melbourne and I do it - I am sure Queensland will give me a job to do next week."
