The Winnipeg Sun couldn't just put this story
in the back pages where such items usually go
or even save the story to a later date,
they put it in the Sports Pages just before
the Bombers most important game of the season.
Was it their intention to rattle Michael Bishop
and disrupt the fortunes of their home team?
Was it to cast an unfavourable light
on the whole Winnipeg team itself?
These ramifications are beside the point to them,
the important thing to them is selling newspapers,
let the chips fall where they may.
Putting this information in the SPORTS pages
of a local newspaper is going way to far, IMO.
but I know this is standard practice.
How would we fans of the Ticats like it
if the Spec dragged out some dirty laundry
on one of our top players and
ran a story on it tomorrow.
By the way, today the Spec ran the CP edition
of the Michael Bishop story in the Sports Section.
