T.O. or Owens?

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Colonel Forbin, Oct 26, 2006.

  1. I hope I'm not D_B'ing here, but anyone else find it odd that the AP uses T.O. on second reference?

    During the Ryder Cup one year, I found a first reference to "Montie."

    Local radio station split the difference and is calling him "T.O. Owens."

    The AP is the worst about following its own rules.

    T.O. is for TV.

    Owens for print.

    Nice to see the ESPN-ization of sports writing has now hit the AP. God help us all.

    God I hate ESPN. Even more so, I hate trying to train young writers not to write ESPN-like ledes.

    Owens, for the love of God. T.O. is not even a fucking real nickname.
