Just saw this headline on MSN News:

NFL World Is Praying For Matthew Stafford's Wife Today

I thought, 'My God, is she seriously ill?'

This is the entire article:

Kelly Stafford, the wife of the Rams star quarterback, was heartbroken over the concussion news earlier this month.

“If you follow nfl, you just heard Matthew got put into concussion protocol,” Kelly wrote. “If you have listened to my podcast at all, you know how a big a deal it is to me. The head is not something to be messed with… and I hope as this sport develops so does the concern for head health and the research around it."

“And no, I’m not ok,” Kelly continued. “I have every emotion running through me. Concerned, angry, sad, tired... all of them.”

The NFL World is certainly thinking of Kelly Stafford on Sunday afternoon following Matthew's injury.

"Kelly Stafford is about to go on the rant of a lifetime on Instagram," one fan wrote.

"Kelly Stafford gunna be crying bout Matthew on IG live in a couple hours here.." one fan added.

"Matthew Stafford in concussion protocol AGAIN Kelly Stafford gonna cry again on the pod this week," one fan added.

The Rams are currently trailing the Saints in the second half.

Our thoughts are with the Stafford family.

    The clickbait that offends me most are the photo of some starlet of the past, Raquel Welch for instance, with headline like "She's almost 90--try not to gasp when you see her now!" It strikes me as both misogynistic and ageist.

    I studied journalism in college. We were taught to write in an inverted pyramid style. Meaning the most important facts--the who, what, where and why and maybe a how--came first in the article. That's because articles used to be trimmed from the bottom to fit the layout of the newspaper.

    The internet ruined a lot of journalism. Length doesn't matter on a website. Consequently, the teaser in the headline requires the reader to wade through the entire article for w, w, w and w. That's if they are even mentioned in the article.
