    Any PFT, in typical wonderful PFT fashion, nails them out for it in a non-deadspin type way. Whadda you all think?

    Is it plagiarism when you just transcribe what's on TV? Not defending ESPN, but the original "reporting" was anything but original.

    I guess that's true. Also, someone on the comments made a good point about it might being an intern who thought it was an AP report and just ran it.

    ESPN took the entire write-up surrounding the Porter quotes, though.

    And they just acknowledged it. Heh.

    ESPN.com's John Clayton is reporting that ESPN.com plagiarized pro football talk...

    From the editors of ESPNBoston.com: A Thursday night blog post featuring Joey Porter's comments regarding Patriots quarterback Tom Brady should have been attributed to ProFootballTalk.com. The attribution has been corrected.

    Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter says that as he prepares to face the New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady on Sunday, he has to prepare for a quarterback who gets protected by a special set of rules -- as ProFootballTalk.com notes.

    PFT has been plagiarizing people for 10 years.
