Thanks, Back Page blogger

A great summary of the Detroit Lions/Free Press Lionsgate, as a couple of tweeters have declared, can be found at our The Back Page blog, written by sports copy editor-reporter Paul Kampe.

I saw several references to the fake quote attributed to Coach Jim Swartz, but I hadn't seen the Saturday story. I couldn't find a copy of the false quote because it had been pulled off line, and because of the lack of home delivery, it was like it never happened - almost.

Thank you, Paul, for getting the full story so we can all make our judgments.

And all I can say is that it's a shame when a little gag can bring anyone down to the level of student paper. I wonder if Luther Ellis was laughing.
