Big typo on SI.com

    On SI.com's front page story for Plummer retiring, their teaser reads:

    No, Jake Plummer doesn't want to play for the Dolphins. One day after being traded to Miami, the ex-Broncos quarterback announced his retirement.

    Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Plummer was traded to the Buccaneers of Tampa Bay.

    Typos aren't really important these days, even in the mag world.

    More important are these issues: Was ad revenue up on the edition and were production deadlines made, thereby avoiding costly overtime issues? If not, we might have to cut another couple of printpress guys.

    This was not the mag, dust, it was SI.com ... online is where not only do mistakes not matter, facts often don't matter
  8. yeah, but laying off 250 people won't affect the product, right?

    Checks are still written out by the same boss.

    Since papers added the online equation, in my market, most have CUT staff.

    That's not a typo. A typo would be Tanpa or Bucccaneers.

    Miami and Dolphins are big, fat, ugly errors. Big difference. Typos I can live with most of the time. Big, fat, ugly errors like that are inexcusable.

    Typos are when the Trib reads that Frank Thomas likes to take pitchers deep into the count (but forgetting the O). Seriously, it happened.

    The bigger question begs...does Frank really like to take them "deep?"
