    That's what happens when you get people on the copy desk who know nothing at all about sports. It always irked me when news desk copy editors used to take pride in not knowing anything sports-related.

    Maybe know nothing about sports. ... But the FT is also out of London (owned by the Japanese), so maybe don't know much about American sports teams or Salt Lake City, too, making it worse. Plus, FT Alphaville is a blog, not the FT itself. It's actually a really good blog for people who work in things related to capital markets .... but I am not sure how well, if at all, it is actually copy edited in real time. They throw stuff up there all day long.

    I know someone who was a contributor for Alphaville. From their description, the editing process is pretty thorough, especially when it comes to financial analysis.

    EDIT: Just read the column and ... yeah ... maybe they let in-house staff get away with more. I got more insight from the SJ.com thread than that post.
