    Mark, no increase in sales for the DT, most comments have been negative from “how is this really news” to “what a waste of news print”.

    Best comment so far, “I thought these guys where in charge of multi million dollar companies, not 12 year olds in the school ground”. Got agree with this comment.

    Rural Vic. – lots of comments most quite funny – cant really repeat here. Interestingly enough irony of Murdock publishing the photos seems to be the highlight and the overwhelming opinion – “Boys will be Boys”.

    Is it not hypocrisy for media to publish editorials some weeks pushing law reform to deal with so called “one punch” violence, then to pay for and extensively publish photos of two clowns (who should know better) having a street brawl? Where are the editorials telling these two blokes how pathetic they look?

    Hop on the CM face book site a lot of negative on that one and I agree they should be charged just like any other clowns having a fight in public
