    You should probably find something real to get upset about, mistakes like this are easy to make.

    I doubt it's her fault personally.

    Not trying to defend Karen Guregian, especially after that Assante Samuel article...but it is usually the editors that write the headlines, so she gets a pass on this one.

    It's not the initially-making that's the problem -- it's the not-catching.

    And again, it's an easy mistake to make.

    You have to understand how our brains process information when it comes to reading. It's completely human nature to see a correctly spelled word (albeit the wrong word) and move on making a subconcious assumption that the word is correct.

    This sort of stuff happens in newspapers all the time but because the Herald pissed everyone here off you guys are just being petty.

    I don't love or hate the Herald, but I don't think it's an "easy" mistake to make. Even reading over it fast.

    Kevin has more rings and I certainly am glad we got him. Although Marshall was a better runner, I would take Kevin Faulk over him every day of the week.

    But it happens way, way too often. In the past week, just that one blog has misreported three items. They may seem minor if infrequent but when it becomes too common, it loses credibility.
    1) Faulk blunder
    2) They reported Randy Moss gave back to a kids center in Charleston,SC when it was WV. (since then it was corrected)
    3) They reported that the Pats got a compensatory pick at #91, when it was #97.
    >>>> They have their own first-round pick (No. 23 overall). Three second-round selections (No. 34 acquired from the Chiefs for Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel; No. 47 acquired from the Chargers during the 2008 draft; No. 58, their own pick). Then they have a pair of third-rounders (No. 89, their own pick) and the compensatory pick at No. 91. >>>>> (no link intentionally)

    You're right that each is minor but when they post a small item about once a day, is it too much to ask them to proofread it and check their facts?????

    Really??? ALL the time?? Frankly I really doubt that is the case...and if it is it's because of incompetence with the staff of the newspapers. I can assure you this happened rarely 20- years ago and before, Now, newspapers are getting to be a joke.... As to headlines? Usually the writer does not put in headlines, so that is abother who made the first error..BUT I an sure there are others who blundered as well.
    And wasn't it McMullen who made the REAL mistake on Asante??

    As a flagbearer of those who still refuse to read the Herald and are easily sucked into Herald hate speech, I still think this is making a mountain out of a mole hill. (I almost typed "mold hill" ... lol ... I must of took too many stupid pills this morning)

    There's plenty of good reasons to bash the Herald.

    On the bright side, it made for a good thread title.

    Just lol!

    Your talking about a HOF player and a guy who Bill really respected (we all know the rams gameplan was to shut down Faulk as much as possible) over a nice role player in Kevin.

    Get off the crack

    He's an bitter ass on tv though, but your crazy if you'd take Kevin over Marshall
