It was a sensible and necessary comment.

 

And I'm here to double down.

 

What is a person even thinking when he writes "per say"? I mean, a normal person writing "per se" is thinking "Latin for 'in itself'." But I cannot even fathom what goes through the mind of someone who writes "per say". What does such a person think he is saying with that? It just boggles the mind.

 

Anticipating the typical knee-jerk retort, I will say that of course I am aware that this is not a board about the English language. Nevertheless, using the language properly is a baseline expectation of all communities of intelligent adults. This contrasts sharply with places such as the comment sections of newspapers and YouTube, which belong to the domain of idiots.  

 

In a forum such as this, all the users are educated adults -- or, at least, we are expected to present ourselves as such. This does not mean that everything need be perfect. Simple typos or those errors which are generated by auto-correct do not detract from the topic being discussed. Also, quickly written messages will sometimes have errors of word usage that would have been caught with further editing. None of this is a big deal.

 

But indications of grammatical ignorance such as "should of" or "have went" begin to overshadow the content of any topic. This is a big deal. And "per say" is even worse; this sort of thing constitutes a kind of pollution.

 

Consider the fact that this board censors the S-word and the F-word. This rests on the notion that certain kinds of expression are offensive and inappropriate. I submit, however, that those venerable four-letter words are unobjectionable; and I further submit that what is truly offensive is writing which disregards things about English that we were all taught long before high school.

 

The expectation that we ought to write like educated people should be accepted without any question here, as in any other civilised corner of the internet. And calling someone out for failing to meet this highly reasonable standard is not something for which I shall be apologising.

About a dozen years ago I started following English football, so I took to extensive reading of English newspapers. From this I became impressed at how aesthetically pleasing the English spelling conventions are. Soon thereafter I decided to adopt most of these conventions in tribute to my new favourite sport, and also in honour of the English rock bands and comedy performers whom I have loved since I was a child. What began as a conscious Anglophillic affectation has now come to feel natural.

Sorry if my grammar in the opening post derailed this thread, I didn't mean it. Now let's get back to uniforms.

That is why I like Texas A&M's white helmets. It goes back or traces back to their 1973 look. Plus, they were better in white helmets than that of the maroon helmets because the style of the look since it is the old throwbacks. BUT, I wish they do something about the numbers. I like the block numbers of their old look better than that crappy stylized one! Similar to how I feel about block shadow, Denver Broncos Copperplate Gothic numbers or whatever typeface they use. Then Minnesota Vikings stupid serif that swifts like the number is getting blown hard!!!

I wish MLS gave the teams the option of not having sponsors. And although I'm not a new york fan, I do like the mets look without the black!

MLS teams do have that option. Colorado didn't have a shirt sponsor for a while, and their shirts looked so nice.

Sponsor is money. And that's all about.

No it's not. It's a perfectly reasonable mistake to say "per say" instead of "per se", Se sounds like say. You called his one tiny little grammatical error BS. That's what boggles my mind. It's not like you weren't able to understand what he was saying by "per say" instead of "per se". Ig he taked lik this ands realy did't mak cence then I gess I cod undr stand it. (If he talked like this and really didn't make sense, then I guess I could understand it.) But he made an honest mistake. These boards aren't The New York Times, or some English 101 Final Paper, it's a discussion about sports. Small Errors like that don't really change the world, or degrade it in any way. Comments like these are what degrades the boards, by focusing on grammar over the sports aesthetics that we're all here to talk about. 

 

And I'll take one out of your book

One idea I have been playing with is actually adding a third official color to A&M's palate: Navy Blue.
