Why would the media care about them? You should know what your talking about before discussing it, im sorry. During the summer, Shabab faced many criticizing and media wars because of Al Mwane3 and Khaybary, and it hurted the team in general a lot. In the beginning of the season both Nasrawi and Hilali medias were attacking Shabab by spreading fake rumours of Abdoh Otaif going to Nasr, and Hasan Mouath going to Hilal, till the point where both players got annoyed and Shababi fans were criticizing the players. The day after Nasr x Hilal game in the Kings Cup when Hilal qualified to face Shabab, Al Riyadh Newspaper had two MAIN articles about Shabab! One was criticizing and making fun of Al Baltan and the other was an exagerating article about fans busting into the Shabab club making troubles, even though what the newspaper mentioned was mainly lies. Here's the articles to read, and the nasr fans busting the club was only mentioned in this newspaper! Mainly because its a big newspaper and supporting its "favorite club". But these tactics don't work anymore. http://www.alriyadh.com/2009/04/28/article425471.html http://www.alriyadh.com/2009/04/28/article425473.html When shabab has a good fan base and media support, trust me they will easily dominate the Saudi league. Just wait.
