Whoa, slow down. They probably just searched the fontawesome icon pack for a ball, pasted the code and that's it.
Agreed, the title is misleading
I realized that after the fact - does that make it acceptable?
Suppose the developer legitimately didn't know about Dribbble?
Probably not, but I just see it as an honest mistake from a non-designer.
lol slow down? The title is a statement of fact. No accusations. "TRONC uses dribbble logo for sports icon". That's true. He didn't say they stole it. In fact, I read it as a funny observation.
Now you should slow down. :) The title was edited, the original was something in the lines of "omg TRONC shamelessly steals dribbble logo, even keeps their class name!".
Dribbble logo or not, that free-kick was incredible.
I couldn't even be mad. Wondo's giveaway 40 yards earlier, though, that I could be mad about (but there was no way we were going to win regardless, especially not playing scared).
TRONC uses a basketball icon to represent sports category :O
That's just as much a factual statement and a non-judgment as OP's title.

As a side note, I hadn't heard of TRONC, so googled it and nothing came up, even though – as I eventually found – it is at tronc.com. How are they failing so hard at SEO?
Edit: Maybe because the site barely works, I can't even load the article in the image http://www.tronc.com/article/argentina-advances-to-copa-america-final-after-4-0-rout-over-u-s-p2p-87634009
Icon fonts make it just too easy.
