At first, Julian Wright appeared to be just a throw-in from the trade that brought Bayless and Peja Stojakovic to Toronto, playing sparse minutes in only a handful of games, if at all. But then Weems went down and the Raptors needed another wing to bring off the bench - enter the revelation of Wright.

ouch. that's pretty bad.

you'd think Umar Ali would take a little more pride in his work.... or hell a little more INTEREST in what he is covering. I mean neither trade was even long ago.

And it's not just limited to sports. You see it everywhere in a newspaper.

However, the Sun IS the worst newspaper in the GTA (worst than the Oakville Beaver, Bay Observer, Burlington Post etc.) so it doesn't surprise me.

This article is bang on! I remember this. It was right after we acquired Bargs through the compulsory student exchange draft between the Allies and the Axis Powers.

I'm pretty damn sure it's not as bad as the Mississauga news. However, The Sun is aimed at those who don't necessarily take an interest in learning big words.

It is sort of annoying, especially since there are probably some people here who would love to write about sports for a living and would never make mistakes like that.
