Spelling Players' Names

Postby Pats4four » Wed Jul 11, 2007 3:40 pm

There are some weird and wonderful names in the NFL but it annoys be slightly when people can't be bothered to spell their names correctly. I mean, there were many posts last year when people spelt LaDainian Tomlinson's name incorrectly or Shaun Alexander's name. Perhaps I'm just being be but surely we should take the effort to learn to spell their names correctly or just stick to using LT or SA.

He's right, I mean come on, how often do you see people messing up easy names like TJ Houshmandzadeh!! People should learn to spell names correctly!

PS, I am joking. :-b

I generally save my grammar and spelling for those nasty English papers, by the time I log on here I just want to talk football. I agree it's crazy and sometimes annoying when player names are misspelled.

I still say the most important thing is i noe what u meen.

catch my drift mon? now i will go post in the draft trade keeper and waiver forum if i should trade t.j housemanzada in my high stakes $20,000 dynasty buy in league.

EDIT: grrr M16 you beat me to it while I was typing.
