Cheap Shots

We’ve all seen that spleen-rupturing photo of Chris Simms down on one knee and wincing in pain after a Carolina Panthers’ cheap shot. In retrospect, we all admired his gritty performance.

Less than admirable, however, has been the opportunistic use of that image as a marketing hook for the St. Petersburg Times. As in: “Keeping you in the know. We told you first.”

Call it another cheap shot.
