to her defense, it's a courtesy to make sure the name is spelled right etc so when she sends that feed to the local stations, the transponder doesn't blow the guys name up. She has been doing this since 94.

EXACTLY! This is standard journalistic practice.

You know the goalie from the Olympic soccer team and world cup, Brianna Scurry? Her name is pronounced Bry(like "dry")anna. And people still get it wrong.

If I were interviewing him, I'd intentionally mispronounce his name later to get back at him.

In his defense there's this crazy thing called the internet nowadays.

Lazy journalist with no buisness covering a sport she knows nothing about and obviously wants to do no research on.

No, that guy is a asshole. No one in America gives a shit who he is or his gay little sport. You're not too important to say your own name.

its SOP del to get the name EXACTLY right. The way you do that is you umm, get them to say it so there is less room for error.

Kinda like when you are at a bar hammered and to make sure you get the chicks ph# correct, you get HER to write down her info.

I'm sure the sideline person has copious amounts of time between events to go online and do search and then crank it out to affiliates all over the US. Then you get an intern who is playing Halo while at the station in Needles CA and could care less about this kid and some producer who is doing blow to maintain his energy and he is so tweaked he can't take time out to double proofread the name.

First time it has to be right.

So they did this for Dree Brees when he won the SB?

You're acting like the guy just won the 3A State championship.
