Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

Team 135 awoke after a night of driving home from St. Louis to discover that they had been featured in the Sunday paper and on the paper's website. However the title of the article was extremely disappointing: "Penn Robotics team loses". While the content of the article was good please let the South Bend Tribune know what FIRST is about and that no one is a "loser".

Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

Oh dear. I have to admit that I laughed at this.

FIRST ideals, etc, aside, that's still a terrible headline. Not descriptive at all.

At least it seems the community has responded as well to the horrible title!

Well done Penn in 2017!

Yeah, unfortunately that was pretty funny when I first saw it.

Congrats on making it STL though!

Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

This honestly may be the worst newspaper article I have ever seen. Congratulations to 135 for an awesome showing, you guys looked to be real contenders on your field even with such other strong teams!

Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

The fact that 135 is the only team in Indiana to earn a qualifying spot in our district all 3 of the years IN has been a district is so impressive. It so sad to see a team that earned this accomplishment was put down like this.

Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

I'm glad the community has decided to respond to this. Ranking 4th in worlds is far from "losing" and there were much better ways for SBT to sum up the results of the team. You guys looked good out there 135!

Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

Perhaps they meant to write "Penn Robotics Team Loses in Quarterfinals"? This article reads like it was written by a middle school intern, not a professional paper.

"FIRST Tech Challenge for smaller, detail-oriented robots" Umm...

Related to horrible news titles, I was laying in bed at the hotel and saw this on the news last night in a story about Google Home and Alexa. They even showed the robot water heater in this, however they never once showed an actual robot *facepalm* I don't know which is worse, horrible titles or horidable misspeled nesw articels.

Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

That's so sad but funny... the lack of capitalization in the title is what makes it.

Headlines are not capitalized according to the Associated Press stylebook.

Re: Unfortunate Title in Local Newspaper about our Team

This entire article is an unfortunate misinterpretation of FIRST programs. It makes me cringe when media makes assumptions and post articles without doing their research. I highly doubt that anyone from that newspaper even bothered to go to research what FIRST is about let alone attend championship.

Also...

Great job Penn! You guys really made Indiana proud!
