    I did not want to waste a post on this because its primarily a spelling problem and its a bit anal per say,but its out of hand.

    In the past several posts mentioning our HCs last name I have seen spelling of his name like this...

    BelichEck
    BelLichick
    BelEchEck
    Belichik
    Belechick


    For gods sake his name is spelled B-E-L-I-C-H-I-C-K - thats Belichick

    It does not take a brain surgeon to learn this

    Now back to class children recess is over..... :D

    Well, in reality then we should REALLY be spelling it Bilicic, if you wanna get specific and historically correct :p

    LOL! It's one of my pet peeves too, but I never talk about it. Just as bad is the mispronunciation. His name is BelichIck, not BelichEck.

    You would have been more correct in your title and post if you'd used the spellings:

    Coach's
    it's
    per se
    HC's
    God's


    It's a good thing that you're going back to class!

    Yeah I have that as a pet peeve too and I think its a bit of disrespect,illiterate or ignorance whatever category you put it in but now there have been several different types of spellings of his name,Its beyond tolerable anymore.

    If you are a Patriots fan than at least know how to spell your f-cking coach's name correct or become a bears fan because Smith is an easier name to spell I guess :rolleyes: :D

    O.K. if you want to be technical about it ;) , But a coach's last name should be easy regardless,He has been here for 7 years.

    You have trouble with punctuation. (For example, two of those commas in your last post should have been periods.) Other people have trouble with spelling.

    Learn to live with it!

    :D

    For more background on this issue, you might talk to Matt Cassell, Willie McGuinnest, or the linebacking core. ;)

    I'll just stick with "BB."

    Indeed. Would it then have to change pronunciation to Beli-cheech? My Serbo-Croat is ropey, to say the least.

    I may be wrong on this, but I'm pretty sure your sentence isn't exactly grammatically correct, either. I don't think it's proper to put entire sentence in parenthesis. You could have written the sentence in one of two ways:

    You have trouble with punctuation (for example, two of those commas in your last post should have been periods).

    or

    Now will someone please find something wrong with my post and correct me.

    Awesome. :)

    While we're at it...it's not spelled C-O-W-B-O-Y-S, it's spelled V-I-C-T-I-M-S. (I hope.)

    I have not heard the Serbo-Croat language in many YEARS.

    Errr, I mean: It has been many years since I have been exposed to the Serbo-Croat language. :)

    Re: Can we learn how to actually spell our Head Coaches last name for once?

    Can we include a homophone lesson in this thread? How about a lesson on the difference between singular possessive ending in an 's' and plural possessive? What about fewer vs. lesser? Oh, and can I add a footnote saying that a word being in the dictionary just means it's common rather than meaning it is a viable word (I'm looking at you, ain't).

    As a random related thought, I love the filter on SoSH which changes misspellings of Buchholz to "I am an idiot."

    Nice

    There's no excuse for failing to care about spelling someone's name properly. It's insulting.

    And I love analysts that get confused between the two BB's, Bill Belichick and Brian Billick, calling Bill, Brian and vice versa.

    Your wish is my command. :D

    "I don't think it's proper to put an entire sentence in parentheses."

    I'm tired. Please correct at least two errors in the part I bolded, thus saving me the trouble of doing it myself.
