The coverage of the 2017 NRL Grand Final, won by the Melbourne Storm, was abysmal. While it was great to see Richmond win their first premiership in 37 years, Melbourne Storm won their second in six years. The coverage though, was extremely one sided. Compared to the pages and pages dedicated to Richmond, the Storm had maybe half a dozen. 

The Melbourne Storm has a massive following. They are arguably the most successful team in the NRL in their almost 20 year history. They have the fourth largest membership numbers for the 2017 season, and had the most dominant season of any team in recent history. The "Big 3" are the most celebrated players in the game, with captain Cameron Smith breaking record after record this year alone.

Yet, it has rarely been covered to a great extent by the biggest selling Victorian newspaper. Enough is enough. We, the fans, supporters and members of the Melbourne Storm want more coverage for our team.
