Local Paper compares Footy mishap to Gang Rape

This piece of ‘journalism’ quite annoyed me, and was somehow(?) picked up by the Londonist:

“Local Paper compares Footy mishap to Gang Rape – That was the headline that greeted readers of Tom Duncan’s column in the Newham Recorder last week. His comparison of watching a football team under perform to watching a loved one gang raped is undoubtedly the crassest and most offensive local news headline we’ve ever seen. The story was picked up on a Leyton Orient FC message board where fans showed their disgust at the article and rallied a bevy of complaints to the paper and the Press Complaints Commission.”
