    No, it's not.
    There is a very specific ban on this site on misleading headlines for EXACTLY this reason.

    Yes - but there was a well-known PPO poster who got his kicks out of doing exactly this sort of thing a couple seasons ago which is WHY there's a ban on it.
    I can say that every post that I have ever made that has been misleading is properly referenced, in the correct forum, and not pulled out of my ass.
    This post was the same, nothing that wasn't factual.
    The idiots must learn, catering to them is an injustice to their mental development.

    The problem was when people would just start a thread that said something like, "Allen broke his arm", then you click on it and there is a smiley with no content.....something pulled from the ass.
    Big difference.
    I didn't mean you when I wrote "Well-known PPO Poster".

    If I was referencing you, I would have written "Well-known PPO Psychopath".

    I didn't know that... well, I promise that it will not happen again.

    For example, if a guy named Aaron Peterson gets injured, I will not write "A. Peterson is injured". Instead, I will write "Aaron Peterson is injured".

    Happy..?

    Every writer knows that it is up to the drones of society, the editors, to clean up the writing.

    That's the point, it is a calculated misleading headline using real news.
    If someone is so idiotic that they don't check the sources then let them flounder.
    It was a creative dig.

    Ahhh, what's the big deal? Makes people read the threads, keeps em guessing. and if someone is googling "Allen" maybe they'd see this, stop by, like what they see and join..... I think it keeps people fresh

    Re: Vikings' Kenderick Allen injured wrist - out for season

    I thought it was funny as hell. At first I was trying to figure out why someone would dredge a thread about an old injury to Terry Allen since he has been retired for years.
