    Well, I think he's saying that we spotlight the shortcomings, or whatever you want to call it, of athletes and teams, so there's nothing wrong with vice versa.

    Well, then he's completely off the mark.

    "Good for the goose" would be pointing out a mistake Jackson made in his coverage.

    While I would be pissed if the photo were of me, it's hilarious and they didn't do anything wrong by posting it. You fall asleep on the job, you deserve whatever you get.

    Obviously a D_B on my part, but I don't apologize too much. Certainly the professional thread was a reasonable place for this to go. :)

    The Dodgers started the PR blog this year and have on several occasions used it to criticize media coverage. In one instance, they ripped a writer for "cheap shots" about the owner. In another, after a pitcher and catcher ripped each other (all the papers had it, not just one), the PR guy came back the next day with, hey, the writers turned this into a story where there wasn't one, that's not what the pitcher and catcher meant, yada yada yada.

    I don't know if this is an expression of opinion about the writer's coverage or just someone's idea of a joke.
