I competely, and totally, agree with you.

Also, Sunday is the Sabbath, the day of rest, the 7th day, as in, I've worked my butt of the last 6 days, let me rest on the LAST day of the week.

Actually, that would be practiced by Christians.

Mondays are the start of the week, nobody dreads Sundays, they dread the beginning of the next week aka Mondays.

Sunday is the first day of the week for 2 reasons:

1) It's the first day of the week on calendars

and more importantly,

2) In FF, weeks containing games starting on Sunday and ending on Monday or in some cases Thursday are considered to be in the same week, ie: in week 3 Tampa played Oakland on Sunday, and in Week 3 Dallas will play Washington in Week 3. Both in the same week, so there's no way Monday can be the start of a new week, and since Sunday was our only other option, and is globally recognized as the first day of the week, it is indeed, the first day of the week.

:-D

Monday is the beginning of the week. Sunday is part of the week-END.

Come on guys, do people say, "I'm going home for the week-start? NO! How can you consider Sunday the start of the week?

No, you go away for the weekend - usually that means you're going away on Friday or Saturday. Which is the weekEND. Then you go back home on Sunday, the weekSTART. A week can't end on two days, it ends on one; Saturday. When you say you're going out on the weekend do you go out Saturday night or Sunday night?

Uh, this is crazy reasoning. When people say they're leaving for the weekend they mean Saturday and Sunday. The day back is still part of the trip. Saying that the weekend is one day is ludicrous, everyone knows the term weekend refers to Saturday and Sunday.

Sunday is the last day of the week, Monday is the first day.

The work week starts Monday, etc. And if you're religious, there's the whole creation of the world thing which has the world being created in a week, the first day of which is Monday, and the last (rest) is Sunday.
