I’m sure it’s just an editorial mis-step but I have, I must confess, been wondering for the past few days – why has The Nation put this article in its sports section?

On the front page it is filed under “Sports” (above articles like FA extends Mascherano ban and Croatian football player dies following injury sustained in match) and the URL (…sport/sport_30070437.php) makes it unmistakable.

My eyes are not playing tricks on me, are they? What is the referee’s decision?

Update 20 April: I’m not wanting to dwell on this…but…the article highlighted here remains the first “Sports” report on The Nation‘s website. It must have been there for at least a week already. Has it become a permanent fixture? Or are the relevant webmasters just taking an extended Songkran vacation?
