They should leave it alone completely then. They've got a pretty decently sized MMA section on their site, they are attention leeches.

Well, to be fair, that is an AP article. So the mistake is on their part. NBC is just too lazy to correct it or is ill informed when comes to MMA. I'll go with a bit of both.

That is kind of funny. Really shows a lack of professionalism when they report on topics without doing any research whatsoever.

I also giggled a little at you insulting the intelligence of NBC yet titling your thread "NBC are retarded" instead of "NBC is retarded". You wouldn't say "Dave are retarded", right? Just poking fun, I know this is just a forum and grammar doesn't really matter. Just me being lame.

I always thought if you were talking about a collective then you use 'are', i'm saying NBC's MMA reporting staff are retarded.

Lol, I didn't even notice it said Nate instead of Nick until you posted. Guess I'm not smarter than NBC

Again, it's an AP article. Has nothing to do with NBC, other than it's on ther website. That same article is likely posted on dozens of news sites with the exact same mistake.
