Herald's dumb-asses are at it again.
Can't they even file a decent victory copy? Sure they could have been dripping in champagne around the time this guy filed the copy. But that still doesn't explain mistakes like the one's that have happened here.
'Herald steal'
'Three times defending'
Now look at this. If they 'easily outsmarted' (first line) Navhind Publications, then how was it a 'thrilling and keenly fought match' (second para, first line)? And if it was a 'thrilling and keenly fought match' then how could Herald have 'dominated the proceeding right from the word go'?
Another huge error in the copy guys... Managed to spot it yet? Lets see if you can get it. If you can't scroll to the bottom of this post. :)

Herald steal limelight for 4th time

PANJIM, APRIL 12 -- Three times defending champions Herald Publications easily outsmarted Navhind Publications 3-1 to lay their hands on the Inter-Media football tournament title for the fourth consecutive year.

Herald’s star player Minguel Carvalho, who scored a brace was to be watched as he showed some profound footballing skills.
Pradeep Vengurlekar, who scored the winner was also at his best.
Gonsal Rebello was the lone scorer for Navhind Publication.
Navhind Goalkeeper Anirudh Raul effected a good save off a penalty kick by Pradeep Vengurlekar.

The tournament was organised by Sports Journalists Association of Goa in association with the Directorate of Sports and Youth Affairs.

Note: Didn't spot it yet? No problem. Check out the para which talks about the winners. Check the last line.... Still cannot figure it out? It's a huge error maan... the story says Times of India won the 'fair play trophy'. 'Fair play' and the Times of India!!! When did that happen? hehehe
