I took this photo for fun on Friday and it touched off a bit of a debate in our newsroom. I posted it on our Advocate photo blog and our Editor saw it, liked it and wanted to run it ASAP. Our Sports department said they liked the photo but it wasn’t a “Sports Photo” so they didn’t want to run it in their section. This of course led to a discussion on our Advocate facebook page and in our newsroom, what is a “Sports Photo”? Do features only work when its a cheering crowd? Would you run this in your Sports section as a feature?
Our Editor wrote a Column about it (with the photo on A1) today, read it here.
