Interesting Theory

Postby Wolfpig » Tue Aug 30, 2005 10:14 am

Have you ever noticed how some players in the NFL have names that are not pronounced the way they are spelled? It happens every so often with a few players, and I believe I have found the reason behind two of these abnormal pronunciations.

Let's start with WR Eric Moulds.

Cleary his name is phonetically pronounced "Moolds." But every announcer on television says "Molds."

Stay in that vein. TE Jim Kleinsasser. His name should be pronounced "Kline-sass-er." But every announcer on television says "Kline-sauce-er."

I BELIEVE ERIC MOULDS HAS GIVEN THE "U" IN HIS LAST NAME TO JIM KLEINSASSER.

Call me crazy. Call me insane. But it is not the only example.

WR Plaxico Burress. Obviously his name is "Plack-sick-o" (that's funny for different reasons). But every announcer says "Pleck-sick-o."

Then you have QB Kelly Holcomb. Clearly there is a missing "E" on the end of his last name.

I BELIEVE KELLY HOLCOMB HAS GIVEN THE MISSING "E" AT THE END OF HIS LAST NAME TO PLAXICO BURRESS.

Now we are left with the question...what happened to the "A" right in the middle of Plaxico's name?

The mystery rages on...

Even drugs can't explain this.

Moulds = Molds.
Kleinsasser = Kleinsausser

You can see that "U" just move right over there. Like magic.

Holcombe = Holcomb
Plaxico = Plexico

You have to admit, it reeks of conspiracy. Someone put in a call to Tagliabue. I need answers.

Where's Plaxico's "A"? And when did Artose Pinner start pronouncing his name "Artoose?" Whose "O" is that?

More answers...more questions...

Didn't TO used to pronounce his name Terr-ell not Tear-el?

Jeff Zgonina, 13 year year vet from the Dolphins started out at Pittsburgh and changed the pronunciation of his name. It used to be said almost like begonia and he said something like he was no pansy and now it is pronounced Ska-nina.
