    Among the honorable mentions on that link:
    "Eye on the ball, ear on the ground"

    Maybe Poynter laid off an editor.

    I love how a few of Poynter's choices have more than six words.

    EDIT: Dammit, I missed playthough's post.

    I was hoping these were the responses to this thread... sarcastic as hell. That's why I like SportsJournalists.com.

    Yeah, it's seven, technically. I know.

    It's eight total words, six different words. Still dumb, though.

    Newspapers. Only old people read them.

    CEOs get bonuses, you get shaft.
