It is on Ward. He's the one reporting it. If the deal isn't done don't say it is. Say there's a deal in principle that needs to be finalized. That's what Bobby Mac did and it's what separates the pros from the amateurs.

I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. He's still reliable and a legitimate source. People make mistakes. Live and learn.
He's lost some credibility here. People who bring up Eklund are really missing the point... the last thing you want is to be compared to that guy.

Ward is going to have to be a lot more careful going forward. Your credibility is not a boomerang, once you lose it, it's hard to get it back.
