A writer can make the headline off a quotation that sticks out from what they are reporting. The thing that sticks out is the fan that says Karlsson's a garbage pick because he's embarrassed by all of his non-Sens fans friends mocking him for his teams pick.

The headline doesn't tell you the whole story.

If you go your whole life reading just the headlines you're not going to know too much.
Also I believe the editor selects most titles and headings
