Your feedback welcome

In finally getting Sportsword online, after a few false starts, there’s just a couple of points I’d like to make from the get-go.

While, obviously, my crosswords have always had a strong Australian flavour, I’m also mindful that, given my principal newspaper market, there’s often been a distinct Queensland “bias” – particularly when it comes to the football codes.

As a result, one of the more significant challenges for me in launching this project is to try to strike a reasonable balance — and that’s where I’ll be largely guided by your feedback.
