    I don't read WSJ, but I can imagine how courtesy titles could really muck up a sports article.

    "Mr. Fisher passed the ball to Mr. Bryant, who dribbled past Mr. James for a layup." Oy

    Can't wait to read Jason F'n Gay's defense of this policy change, after he so stuffily/snootily/snottily defended the long-time nonsense in this area. What a lightweight.

    I'll be eager to see how many others do the same.
