The sports anchor looked in the camera and said

"If the Eagles win tomorrow, they will be 3-0 for the first time since 1974"

LOL

This statement was a major fail for 3 reasons

1. The Eagles were 3-0 in 2004

2. The Eagles were 3-0 in 1980

3. The Eagles were 2-1 in 1974


Somebody needs to be fired

I really hope he sees this thread and reevaluates himself as a person. Is it even worth it to get up in the morning Mr. Anchor Man?

NFL "experts" say things just as bad and worse all the time...I chose not to hound people about it...I might be weird though.

They meant the Eagles opponent tomorrow, the Cards, would be 3-0 since the first time since 1974

That stat would only be on ESPN not a Philadelphia newscast. Only a local Arizona Newscast because those viewers would be interested in the news..............NOT Philly viewers in the city of Philadelphia

Believe what you want. You've got one thick skull dude. It is what it is. "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink"

http://www.yardbarker.com/all_sports/articles/the_arizona_cardinals_have_not_started_3_0_since_1974/11729515

They are playing against the Cardinals. They could say in a real broadcast "The Eagles are going up against the Cardinals who with a win would be 3-0 for the first time since 1974" I don't know what they actually said word for word, but this is what they meant. It's obvious, and if you can't see that, then you are blind.

The lady said.............."And now to sports, the eagles face the cardinals tomorrow and are trying to go 3-0 for the first time since 1974

Why would a Phillu sports anchor mention the cards that fast? She screwed up that's all. Some mistakes are unacceptable

Yup fire her, do you have a job? I'm sure if you worked for a restaurant and got someone regular soda instead of Diet that they'd fire you on the spot. Laughing It's called a headline dude, trying to set the mood that these are two good teams going at it. Anchors always tries to make some pleasant remarks about the opposing team (especially if they aren't rivals). It's good publicity and is expected to be returned by the other teams market.
