I just read the Kite Hit for Six Article.

On behalf of Mata and PJ (the journos of this site) I must say I am disappointed in the mixed metaphor in the lead.

I would have thought it much more appropriate to lead with "Kite not flying so high!" or "Kite left lying on the ground!" :clap:

He won't have much a future at the Tele if he keeps coming up with such unobvious headlines!

My favourite headline lately was "Floyd, wish you were clear: Mum". Must have taken ages to come up with that one.

Yeah I have to say CW I thought the same thing when I read it....
The tele's today- "Kites year is in ruins" is a slight exaggeration at this point in time as well but I suppose they are only sticking to their usual format!
