Do Your Job Shakes, We'll Do Ours!

The media plays a vital role in society to educate, entertain and, most importantly, to inform the masses of everything that's happening around them. We work hard every day to generate news for the public. We, as Soccer Laduma, strive for perfection with every article, be it on the website, social media or the newspaper.

It has to be said, however, that, as a media organisation, we get the most criticism, but those critics continue to build us as the so-called watchdogs of society, particularly in the football fraternity. With regards to local football, Soccer Laduma continues to be the best soccer newspaper in the country. We have an obligation, which is to bring the news to your doorstep, but that's not the point I'm raising here.

A perfect example: Shakes Mashaba recently lashed out at the media for not being patriotic enough. He called out for the media to back him and the rest of the Bafana team.

I believe Mashaba got it all twisted. Like I said before, we have an obligation, which is to inform you as football lovers. We can never compromise the truth for anything. We will continue to report matters we think the public deserves to know about.

Is reporting that there are notable absentees in his squad selections being 'unpatriotic'? Is informing the public about his mandate being 'unpatriotic'? The reality is that we all want what's best for our national team, and we'll continue to criticise where and when we see the need to.

How do we go about proving our loyalty to Bafana? Do we stop reporting the news? Do we stop criticising his selections? Do we stop giving people a platform to share their opinions about the beautiful game? Do we only focus on the positives? In that case, there would be no reason to have a media organisation. Maybe people should focus on doing their jobs and allow others to continue with theirs as well.

Do you think the media is unpatriotic towards our national team? Share your thoughts below.
