Yesterday’s Tom Curran article about “The Teflon Donahoe” contained a factual error. (I’m kicking myself for not catching it.) He stated that Donahoe:
Skates, even after signing fat Sam Adams to a $32-million contract in the offseason.
The error was pointed out on the KFFL Patriots board, (one of the top Patriot message boards) and Curran himself responded and corrected himself.
...You're right, I screwed the Adams thin (sic) up bad...he signed an 11.7M deal...Spikes signed for 32M and that obviously was the # kicking around my head...it certainly doesn't do a whole lot to advance my argument when i'm off by 21M and I'll get that correction in...(I stand by the fact he's fat -- and the other points in the column, though) ...one clarification, when I said "he has his defense carping about his offense" i didn't mean he asked them to do that, i meant that it has come to pass...probably could have worded it better.
Refreshing to see a guy say he messed it up…publicly. He also made the correction in his notebook today. Other writers would instead whine about “irresponsible websites” and the like…if contacted by email, they would tell the emailer that he’s sure that they’re at the top of their field…
