This template is for articles which involve an article about an evolving current sports-related event which is either changing rapidly or about which understanding is rapidly evolving. This is an advisory to readers that the article may be incomplete and subject to change.
Note that every article on Wikipedia has a General disclaimer indicating that the article contents may not be accurate. As such, this template is redundant.
As an advisory to editors, it may also be used in those occasions that many editors (perhaps a hundred or more) edit an article on the same day.
It is not intended to be used to mark an article that merely has recent news articles about the topic, or for some team or league that is in season; if it were, thousands of articles would have this template, without informational consequence.
Generally it is expected that this template and its closely related templates will appear on an article for perhaps a day or two, occasionally several days.
