NFL Hall of Fame WR Torry Holt calls out ESPN for major graphic error

Torry Holt, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, gave ESPN a well-deserved roasting on Saturday during a college football broadcast because of a visual error.

ESPN highlighted Thayer Thomas' potential to break the Wolfpack record for touchdown receptions during the broadcast of Saturday's game between NC State and East Carolina by displaying a graphic showing the all-time leaders in touchdown receptions for the Wolfpack.

Holt, who caught 31 touchdown passes for NC State between 1995 and 1998, now holds the record.

There was only one issue: Holt's first name, Torry, was fully misspelt as Terry in the illustration.

It was terrible enough that the image was incorrect, but now that it has been publicly corrected, it is even worse.

Given how far apart the characters are on a typical keyboard, it is impossible to dismiss it as a simple misspelling that went undetected.

Holt excelled as a receiver at NC State and in the NFL, where he won a Super Bowl and was a seven-time Pro Bowler. He isn't exactly a mystery. Nobody ought to be misinterpreting this.

Unfortunately for ESPN, graphic blunders and errors are not particularly uncommon.
