but not the actual club, people don't support Rangers because of sites like RangersNews....think you are overreaching what the profession is a bit, such sites exist because of Rangers, not the other way around.
RE The Lakers, new content etc
The same way I do now, it is modern world, easy enough to engage and interact with fans online these days and find out club news, use resources and outlets I find of use, there are plenty of them these days.
Fans can create their own "media" and news outlets and do that without any "official club news" or a press lanyard.
The majority of news the actual Lakers release (like most sports teams and I include Rangers) is pish if I am being honest, it is typically fan media which drives chat I find interesting, and it is fans who don't have access (or need access) to press conferences or games, so it makes no difference to me where they report it from.
The notion ALL engagement is going behind a paywall is also a bit far fetched TBH, that is bit reaching to try and make it look like the club are just going to shit on all fan engagement new, or old and they quite clearly are not.
There are very few journalists who have covered Rangers over the years I have given much of a fuck for, I will manage on OK without reading random opinion pieces from them if they are kept out the club, self proclaimed experts,
It's a dying profession I am afraid, folks just don't place journalists on much a pedestal these days, more so with sport, I don't need to be told how to think about Rangers by someone like Hugh Keevins anymore so couldn't really care less if he has to pay to get access to the club.
