Then, in a classic example of why local newspapers are not worth buying, we have two offerings from the Bristol Evening Post
One thing that may be worth pointing out with the Bristol Evening Post is that it is a paper which apparently is staffed in the main by supporters of Bristol Rovers, and as such tends to slant its stories, both football and non-football wise, in favour of Rovers and against Bristol City.
I've had personal experience
of this (as a supporter of neither) and the Bristol Evening Post has apologised on another occasion http://www.pressgazette.co.uk/story.asp?storycode=36905
I remember once on a City forum they used to have a 'sticky' thread (I can't find it now) where they documented all the reporting bias of the 'Evil' Post (as they dubbed it), for example how crimes were reported differently depending in which area of the city it occurred in - their fans used to run a concerted complaints campaign.
My knowledge of Bristol isn't intimate enough to determine whether Stokes Croft is Rovers or City territory but should it prove to be 'City' it may go someway to explaining their shoddy reporting.
