Depends, doesn't it. If your "average journo" has worked on the news side all their life, then no. If your "average journo" has always covered sport then there's a good chance they'd fit the bill.

 

Out of interest, why would you expect your "average journo" to have an in-depth knowledge of our club's history? Should it be a pre-requisite for employment on the Hull Daily Mail or East Anglian Daily Times?

Going off what appears in print, there are few journos that have an in depth knowledge of football.

There are good as well as bad.

 

The problem with sports journalism is writers tend to be fans first, writers second. So while they are well informed, opinion is allowed to over-ride facts in a way that would not be tolerated in normal reporting. It's one of many areas sports journalism needs to pull itself up on
