My question is in reference to the following headline I came across on a running publication. It is worded as such:
"The men's 1500m prelim saw a lot of pushing and shoving. So what do you think - should Joe Hardy of Wisconsin been disqualified?"
So, is this correct? If I were to read it without the extra information that he was "of Wisconsin" the sentence would be:
"So what do you think - should Joe Hardy been disqualified?"
This sentence seems even more off-putting, but is it actually grammatically correct to structure it this way?
"So what do you think - should Joe Hardy have been disqualified?"
sounds more correct. However, to say:
"So what do you think - should Joe Hardy of Wisconsin have been disqualified?"
sounds especially clunky. What gives? How should this be worded? And does including the "have" suggest that he was actually disqualified? (Because this is not the case, he wasn't disqualified and the question was, well, should he have been?)
