The musings of a Detroit-area sportswriter in the digital age.

If at first you don't see it, check the Web site

This could be considered another "Fun with deadlines" entry, but some of our readers didn't get the Lions game in their Sunday paper. The preseason contest was incomplete at the time of our first deadline (10:30), so our readers in the southern part of the county didn't get to read the story.
Instead of reading about the Lions' latest debacle, they got a story about how Brett Favre is catching up to the Vikings' offense.
To compound the issue, the Tigers played a late game in Oakland the same night, and, to a lesser extent, the Shock game was too late for the first edition, also.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we do what we can with time constraints. On the bright side, at least there was a section full of high school football in our annual preview, which debuted Sunday in section H.
