Re: “Fly on the Wall 1517

Another item for the Dammit, Gannett file: In a story today about a Nashville football coach being arrested for soliciting sex from a student, Gannett twice mentions that the coach played the position of "pass catcher" on his college and high school football teams. I suppose that Gannett's poorly-paid offshore copy editors don't know that the position should be referred to as a "receiver," not "pass catcher."

Re: “Are you cool enough for Memphis Sounds?

Meghan, I love your enthusiasm and sincerity. How could anyone with a pulse and at least a mild sense of adventure not want to visit Memphis Sounds after reading this?

Re: “Black Panther

One of the most remarkable things, Chris. Things...Not, thing. Your sixth grade grammar teacher is embarrassed.

As for me, maybe I'm anal. But I lose interest in reading the rest of the review when there's a glaring goof like that in the opening sentence. Sheesh...Again, I pose the same question I asked the Memphis Flyer a few weeks ago: Does anybody copy edit this stuff before it's published?

Re: “2018 Memphis Tigers football schedule

Good points, J Thom. Looking at the schedule, I can realistically count 9 wins. Maybe even 10. With a little luck and the emergence of a good new quarterback, we could even go undefeated. But because the schedule seems so lackluster, I doubt that we would have any chance of making the playoffs. (As was the case last season with Central Florida.) If we truly want to run with the big dogs, it would behoove us to find a way to get one or two big dogs on or schedule every season.

Re: “2018 Memphis Tigers football schedule

Hmm...There's no especially attractive non-conference home game this year. That's a bit of a let down. Still, the release of the U of M football schedule gives fans something to look forward to in the midst of another lousy basketball season. Who'd have thunk we've ever be thinking that?

Re: “County mayor's Race: What's in Their Wallet?

C'mon, Memphis Flyer? Does anyone copy edit this stuff? Quarrter? $2,44.7 spent? $$8,07.22 on hand? The sloppiness doesn't look well, especially in a publication that seems to enjoy poking fun at the sloppy/careless mistakes of other news outlets.
