Biased and Not well versed

The panel does a brilliant job to hide their bias...errr nope. Also, I think its a very important point for Journos in general, if you don’t really follow a team or are not well versed about what is happening at the club then please refrain from just saying anything, or at least jumping onto baseless conclusions.
