    This year's winner for Most Misspelled Rookie:

    Bo "Rudd" Ruud, inheriting the crown from 2007 champ Matt "Guiterrez/Guttierez" Gutierrez. Congratulations, Bo! (Special mention goes to fellow rookie LB Vince Redd for helping to befuddle dozens of PatsFans posters about Ruud.)

    The inaugural Willie McGinest award for sustained excellence goes to Matt Cassel. In his fourth year with the Patriots, Matt continues to be spelled Cassell by a whopping 31.5% of posters. Way to go, Matt!

    This is where Ernie Adams-esque attention to facts and figures comes into play. While Maroney is perceived around the league as a significant misspelling threat, his numbers tell otherwise. Posters nail Maroney's spelling 97% of the time.

    It'd be funny if some day they had a sports spelling bee where "all" you had to do was spell folks' names. The variations on Antoine alone would be priceless. :)

    good mourning all from the king of misspellings.

    In defense of the guilty misspellers like myself its not that we don't know how these names are spelt its that we just don't take the time to proof the posts. Usually I am posting at work and need to be quick.

    May I propose an award, Most misspelled word board-wide.

    Defense. Not defence. Which is the rebus version shown on TV. Crazy fan holding "D" and the "fence". Or "My wife backed inta d'fence wit d'caah. Dented d'bumpa."

    Offence comes in second. Only because it is a variant of offense. Still not preferred.

    It is well know that 78.37% of all stats cited on the web are made up.

    Ah, you wound me! :p

    Absurd as it may seem, the numbers are real enough. E.g., searching forum posts in the past 3 months yielded 500 hits for Cassel, 230 for Cassell. 230/730=.315, or 31.5% misspelled.

    In other words, I am not a faker -- I am a pathetic geek.
