    No problem. It's not hard and fast. It's to make sure an article is developed sufficiently. There are exceptions for solid writing. Plus, 480 is close enough, easy. I think the ballpark is 250 words for breaking news.

    Dude, Mayweather did not win a unanimous decision against De La Hoya. It was a split decision. FYI.

    Do you live in a cardboard box under an overpass down by the river or are you just that dull witted? Not one member of the Bronco nation believes that Tebow won the game all by himself, you must be sniffing sterno. I dont know what Tebow detracter you worship, but what I heard from his mouth was that he gave credit to the TEAM, that it was a TEAM effort. He does deserve credit for leading that TEAM effort and keeping the mo' going. What an insult to the Dolphins that you would suggest they didn't want to win...I hope nobody in Vegas bets on your picks, you might be the doing a dirt nap in the desert.
