Seriously? Are you trying to drive readers away? You have to “like”, tweet or some other promotion to read the whole article? Absurd.

Agree with Alan. What a joke this is. Who came up with this idea?  I dont have twitter, facebook or the like. I enjoy (or enjoyed) reading all of the articles on ARG site. Please return to original state @Kevin Pitstock.

So does this get reported to RSPCA Victoria? The sport doesn’t need this.

Why on earth would you make access to your articles subject to some pathetic social media promotion?

Forcing people to send links to social media is pathetic. I am not going to clog news feeds with unnecessary likes so I can read your articles. If I found one worthy of “liking”, I would do so. However, compelling people just shows poor judgment on your behalf.
And fwiw I wouldn’t pay $20-30 a month either.
Get off your sarcastic high horse and stop doing things like this that just piss people off.

Thanks for your feedback Alan Smith Unlike NGF and The Greyhound Recorder we have always tried over 7 years to provide everything 100% for free. Unlike your establishment at Sky Racing, we don’t have the millions of TabCorp to prop up our writers wages.

This infuriates me!  They are not commodities that, if turn out to be a bad investment, you dispose of.  Most especially in that manner!

Where I live in the US, we have animal cruelty task forces that rescue, rehabilitate and adopt the ones saved.  And the ones not saved, perpetrators are, eventually found, fined and go to jail. 

That meek, mild sentence is an insult to the people of AU.  

Vile.

Why is that greyhound trainers can kill 4 dogs and pretty much nothing happens? He should at least get 12 months in prison under the prevention of cruelty to animals act

Interesting Alan Smith … do you suggest we charge instead? What is easier in your opinion? A quick like or tweet or paying – a month like the other 2 papers? We’re happy to consider all less pathetic ideas you have on your mind.

A filthy activity undertaken by stupid and talentless bogans who can’t hold onto a real job. They abuse and exploit these amazing animals until they can no longer win beer money for them, then these dogs are tortured and killed in their hundreds and thousands. This should be banned and the perpetrators brought to justice. Please please please sign the current queensland government e-petition to stop the development of the Logan greyhound track. It is the last thing they need.
