It is generous of Ken to leap to the defence of Bob Hutton's clever little bit of wordplay, but I wonder if he's missed the uprights on this one.

We'll ask Bob, of course, but it just might be that BOB suggested the front page head and deck, it being A1 and him being the Art director and all.

As for "lazy" journalism - well. Given the page flow most nights, "lazy" just seems like the wildly wrong kind of word to use in these circumstances - even coming from a guy who filed four stories from a single football game.

Truth is, in the eight years I've been here I'd have to say that the incidence of "lede theft" by headline writers has diminished to the point of invisibility.

Five metres for illegal motion, Ken.
