Journal Register Company: Domonic Brown an Idiot


Be sure to check out Bucks Local News' online story today that calls Domonic Brown an idiot. Matthew Fleishman, the author of the article titled, "Phillies hot stove is heating up", included a note to the editor reading, "(*NFP. DOMONIC IS SPELLED RIGHT. HE'S JUST AN IDIOT*)". NFP means not for publication.

A screen capture of the publishing error is below. Link here, until a site editor corrects the oversight.


Bucks Local News is a network of publications owned by The Journal Register Company. Their local papers serve the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Fleishman is the editor for Yardley News, which is a paper under The Journal Register Company's banner. Fleishman's blog, On the Edge, found here, contains a version of the article without the remark not intended for publication. No word yet on if the incorrect version made it to print for the Yardley News.

In an interview with Brown back in July, I asked him about confusion over the spelling of his first name. Check that out by clicking here.

**UPDATE...Fleishman has updated the main article and posted the following statement...
"EDITOR'S NOTE: As the author of this article, I sincerely apologize if I offended Domonic Brown. The NFP (Not For Print) note was obviously not meant for publication, but was inserted so the editor would not change the spelling of his name. Nevertheless, it was a bad joke made worse by the poor judgment of placing the note in the run of the story. The only idiot in this case is me."**

Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice.

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol

Phillies minor leaguer Burch to use health scare as fuel

Tyler Burch, image- MiLB.com I invite you to visit Patreon.com/PhoulBallz in order to support my work and get access to exclusive interviews plus early access to features and news such as this. A missed baseball season wasn't the only challenge facing righty pitcher Tyler Burch this summer.   With persistent symptoms that began prior to spring training it was ultimately discovered, after the 2020 season was shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic, that the 22-year-old had developed an autoimmune disease.   As symptoms that included dry mouth and frequent trips to the bathroom worsened, Burch's situation left his doctor puzzled.  And even the physician that conducted his team physical examination at the outset of spring training jokingly referenced diabetes, but did not take the possibility seriously.    The physical impacts subsided somewhat during spring training, as being more active and adhering to the team diet helped alleviate what he was experiencing.
