I seriously think it was done on purpose. It IS the off-season. :wink:

Would have been funnier if it had been in Washington.

But sometimes I think the WT Headlines are purposely structured that way to get more hits. Though I agree it is idiotic.

Who's the actual person that writes these things and how much do they get paid?

I totally clicked on the link thinking he got shot. I really don't think the WT writers are qualified journalists, so it makes sense.

It was definitely done on purpose.

Nugetts is the real gem of the off season thus far, compounded by the fact that it was just sitting there for days and the confusion it caused to some of the Nuggets faithful on the board.

I've said it before, RealGM has the tools to be a legitimate source website but as long as they continue to make stupid headlines, and put up false rumors at the WT as well, no one will ever take this site serious.

Worse part is the ones who does the headlines has some strong bias to certain teams and some hate to other teams, it's pathetic.

If you guys don't want to read the WT, get NoScript.

Wiretap has been notoriously biased against the Heat. Its funny, they'll always post the negative aspect of a story first, and then correct it later after Heat fans complain.

But this one is just awful, imagine if you were a family member of this kid and read that. Whoever put that up should be ashamed.

Chris, I have a suggestion to make headlines a bit more appealing.

Like you did with the GTD for photoshopping LBJ in a Heat jersey, I think it would be more appealing to the people if you photoshopped the signings of the free agents in the pictures on the headline. Like with the Wes Matthews one. I think it would be interesting.

This move will put The Magic's payroll at around $84 million and cost them $15 million in Luxury Tax payments with one player to sign to reach the 13-man roster requirement.

Wiretap headline should say Jay Vincent, not Sam.
