Moria Skipper Arwima Blasts Media Over Bad Press

Wednesday, April 30th, 2042
Miners manager, Florar Arwima, had some choice words for the Moria media today. “Whatever happened to journalistic integrity?” the Miners skipper asked during a live interview. “No one cares about reporting the facts anymore. It’s all about sensationalism these days. All you guys care about is selling newspapers and driving up ratings. And I’m getting pretty damn sick of it.” Arwima seemed to be referring to recent stories that have suggested the Miners struggles as of late have been the result of off-field distractions.

One article, which accuses Serin Tookes of numerous “extracurricular indiscretions”, has been a particularly sore subject for Arwima. “What players do on their own time is their business, but to imply that any of my players aren’t giving it their all on the field is absolutely ridiculous,” Arwima said, “and to make these kinds of accusations against someone without any proof is just plain irresponsible!”

Team officials had no comment when asked about Arwima’s remarks.
