It's a story on the ROY race, anyone else notice something funny about the picture?

Idiots. Someone should get fired over that one.

09-08-2008, 03:30 PM
That's terrible, but not shocking.

Well, Alexei and Orlando do spend a lot of time together on the field...:tongue:

"I'd like to point out before you make an actual offer that I won ROY last year in my 12th year in the league. Now just in case you were wondering, no that's never been accomplished by any other player. I am a HUGE draw because of this fact. I think you should now go back to the team owner and talk about upping your offer by several million dollars per year. Yes, per year. Oh and I did it steroid free so you need to get with the program, crack open the wallet and show me the ****ing money..."

I e-mailed the writer, and he actually responded in about two minutes and said thanks for pointing it out and that they are in the middle of correcting it now.

Why do people get so worked up over a mistake? I'd hate to work for some of you.

I just thought it was funny since Alexei and OC don't look a bit alike and when you look at OC you wouldn't think he was a rookie lol.

Thank you.

Well it looks as if they have fixed it now, still a funny mistake.

What happened? They changed it before I looked.

What happened? They changed it before I looked.

My thought exactly. I tried to look at the picture and see if anything was up and didn't see anything wrong.

What happened? They changed it before I looked.

It was a picture of Cabrera.

It was a picture of Cabrera.

Ha! Typical.

09-08-2008, 06:10 PM
They probably clicked on the wrong picture to upload. What a bias.

09-08-2008, 06:15 PM
OC probably called the writer to get his picture on there.

Hey just noticed it's your birthday!:happybday

Good catch on the roy pictures. I didn't see oc instead of alexei. Did you email them?

09-08-2008, 09:59 PM
I'll also throw in my happy birthday. Thanks for getting me into It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, I started watching (legally) on hulu.com . We seem to have similar interests, if you or me were female I might have had to start stalking you ... (joke, don't call the cops)

I want Mags back
