An apology to the TSG community on our “editoring” around Michael Bradley’s loan move.
In August of 2010, TSG commented on Jozy Altidore heading to Besitikas. It was off a media report, that said the deal was finalized. Of course, as we know, didn’t happen.
So, at TSG, we went over August and took a look at which media reports and tweets, primarily for American sources, twitter feeds and publications –but also using this site Football Transfer League–were most accurate versus their frequency.
We thought we painted a good enough of picture of when to put something up, but yesterday taught us to be a little more careful.
So our apologies to the TSG community. We probably would have made yesterday’s report a little “smaller” real estate-wise on the site and not had a follow-up in retrospect. While we weren’t wrong yesterday, we issued the story as a “Report”…I’m not sure we conveyed enough to the audience how closer to rumor (vs. truth) on the bar that it was.
Going forward, we’ll do full pieces with little consideration to timeliness. Unless you tell us otherwise.
