My newspaper produced a report of the defeat last weekend of the New Zealand rugby team (by the South African team) under the headline "ALL BLACKS ON THEIR KNEES" - conveniently with a picture of the NZ team on their knees performing the Haka.

Nice comic touch.

Define 'opportunistic' in regard to newspaper reports.
Hoping that a headline which could be read as potentially rude or offensive will make it past the sub-editing stage and be published.
