All our writers and correspondents should ask for advice from our  Legal Advisor on any matter that may have legal implications for sportsnewsarena.. However, the final decision whether to publish, lies with the editorial staff, not their legal advisor.

Sportsnewsarena.com  writers and correspondents are expected to present issues fairly, not to take sides. The writers should not become emotional, or use emotive language, in writing stories or conducting interviews.

For Sportsnewsarena.com to retain its credibility, accuracy is imperative, research for any article has to be thorough, and be checked and crosschecked.

With the best of intentions and efforts, mistakes still happen. When a serious factual error has been made, it should be acknowledged and corrected as soon as it is picked out.
