What One Little Typo Will Do...

New, comments

I've seen this before, and I find it funny how you can track one little typo and the effects it has on the Internet. In Tony Grossi's recap from what Heckert and Shurmur said yesterday, I noticed he mistakenly spelled "Marcus Benard" as "Marvin Benard." I didn't check, but I doubt the misspelling made it to the print copy of the Plain Dealer.

With the power of publishing on the Internet though, other sources picked up on Grossi's piece. To show how willingly people will copy and paste, take a look at this from KFFL's hot off the wire page:

This is just a small example. If you do a Google search for "Marvin Benard Browns" you'll see a few other websites who did the same thing. Obviously this isn't a big deal or anything, but down the road when people unaware of the Browns do research, they won't think twice to realize there isn't a player named Marvin Benard on the team.
