On potentially one of the top 5 days in 49ers' sports history...

this is on Charlotte.com

And unless I’m missing something, there is NO mention of the golf team online.

Wow. Now remember, [B]Mike doesn’t run the Charlotte.com page[/B]. That is someone else.

That’s a ridiculously stupid mistake…

where do these people live?

If you read the story it does have a blurb about our game against Richmond. I am guessing that is the reason for placing it there…

Here it is, Tuesday, October 16, 2007 @ 8:30AM. Currently, the top story on the Charlotte 49ers page on Charlotte.com is this:

[b]THE LATEST ON THE 49ERS Soccer | Defensive struggle goes to Tar Heels[/b] Two of the nation's best defensive teams met Sunday afternoon and No. 11 North Carolina controlled the tempo in a 1-0 victory against No. 24 Wake Forest in ACC women's soccer.
Hmmm... :rolleyes:

you guys are way too critical…

mistakes happen

1.) they never occur in the 49ers’ favor.

2.) did you miss hitting the toilet this morning?

clt says that makes sense. aren’t we unc?

You bunch of WHINERS. Stop complaining. I’m ashamed of you.

You should be thankful for the amount of coverage that Mike does let us have. Don’t you know we are never supposed to be considered “Charlotte’s Team”.

You’re right, Over40. I can only wish the 49ers would get page 4 coverage like shown below for being [B]11th[/B] in a nobody golf tournament.

[QUOTE][B]HPU volleyball makes it eight straight
ENTERPRISE STAFF REPORTS[/B]
SAVANNAH, Ga. – The High Point University volleyball team made quick work of Savannah State on Monday night, taming the Tigers 30-9, 30-10, 30-10 to extend the Panthers’ program-record winning streak to eight matches.

This group called the Knight Foundation ( http://www.knightfdn.org/ ) called me, a group focused on media culture in a city and asked how they could help. I told them that our newspaper needs to have front page stories for UNC Charlotte related item, especially athletics relate. Let’s see what they can do.

Are they related to Bobby Knight or Night Rider or Knight Ridder Newspapers? LOL.

You do all realize how things like this work, don’t you?

It’s a news feed from another story. Whatever the headline of the story is, that headline is going to appear on that page. They’re not going to manually go in and change the headline on every team’s page. It just feeds in automatically from another spot and they “tag” which pages they want that stuff to appear on.

If you write a March Madness article with a generic headline, and you want it on the State, Carolina, Charlotte, Campbell, Davidson pages, and your web site is worth a dang, you don’t manually go in there and write the headline on each page individually … the “system” does it for you. Same way a story goes on the front page and the front of the City section, etc.

If the headline had been Niners baseball knocks off NC State, and later the article talked about the Heels, it would go on their page too.

Seriously, sometimes you guys are just off your rockers about this Chapel Hill stuff.

brick, i concur with everthing you said except i would substitute ‘the vast majority of the time’ for ‘sometimes’ in your concluding sentence.

And I would respond back with a comment that the Charlotte 49ers deserve and UNC Charlotte deserves its own recognition there, such as was shown in post 11 above. I would also state that Davidson and Winthrop also deserve the same recognition as being local teams.

I don’t own a rocker.

And yea, I know how it works. Correction, make that WE know how it works. The tarholes can finish 8th in something and get front page. The Niners can finish FIRST and get thrown back to page 8 and then the sports editing chapel hill grad tells us we should consider ourselves lucky… and then another smartass chapel hill wannabee makes a post that ends with “Seriously, sometimes you guys are just off your rockers about this Chapel Hill stuff”.

Ok, I can get the front page argument. That’s legit. But don’t frame it as a Tar Heel headline on the 49ers page thing. Because that just makes us seem ignorant, in my opinion.

Fair enough.

Over40, you are the man!
