Giving All Newcastle United Fans A Voice

8 years ago

A recent article ([intlink id=”27211″ type=”post”]Newcastle Must Rest Players Against Benfica[/intlink]) produced much debate, with nearly everybody disagreeing with the author’s belief that Sunderland should be made a priority over Benfica.

We put together some of the responses together as another article ([intlink id=”27219″ type=”post”]Backlash Against Idea Of Resting Players Against Benfica[/intlink]) and that helped keep the debate going.

As has happened before, certain people have tried to label the original article as some kind of editorial line from The Mag but as we’ve said any number of times in the past, dozens of people write for the website and magazine and we print/publish pretty much everything, the only criteria being that we think it will be of interest to Newcastle fans. We don’t sit in judgement as to whether we agree with everything, what would be the point of that.

One of the comments made is from the excellent NUFC Tips (follow @NUFCTips on twitter) and nice to see a decent impartial take on what we are (hopefully!) trying to do;

One of the things I love about The Mag is the fact that it’s totally independent and gives every fan a voice across the whole spectrum of opinions.

Over the years there have been many articles published which I disagreed with, and even a few which got me angry, but that’s part of The Mag’s appeal.

In fact when someone expresses an unpopular or controversial viewpoint it generally spurs everyone else into a response, so The Mag’s policy of freedom of speech deserves a lot of credit.

In these days where players and managers can often be punished by the FA or their clubs for speaking their mind, it’s nice to know that censorship doesn’t extend to the fans.
