    Almost every commentator says Adalus, but its pronounced the way it is spelled isnt it adalius, like adaleeus?

    WEEI pronounces it as if there were no "i" when speaking with him and he doesn't correct them. I'd assume they're correct.

    Apparently he's just too polite to correct them. He's on record that the pronunciation is A-day-lus.

    Well, it would be remiss of me not to say something about Americans and their mangling of the ENGLISH language. I therefore propose A-dah-lee-us. :)p:p:p:p).

    So did that mean that probably 90% of Packers fans weren't real fans because they couldn't pronounce Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila?

    At least you remained relevant to the topic, congrats on that.

    You're the one that challenged your own brotherhood of fans, all I did was back them up for your idiotic statement.

    Oh and on another note, just because my team hasn't been successful in recent years that means I should not follow football or discuss it at all? Seems a little weird to me. I'm not accusing all Pats fans but I'm seen a HUGE group of band wagon followers. Never question my loyalty, that would make me upset, we'll see how well you guys would handle a 5 year playoff drought.
