    NFL fans in Washington struggle with spelling, analysis of comments left on team websites shows

    A recent analysis of comments left on news stories from each of the NFL’s 32 team websites shows that fans in Washington have a hard time with the rules of the English language.
    Not only are fans in Washington unaware — or simply uninterested — that their team’s nickname is racist, they also seem ignorant about the difference between its and it’s.

    A check of the comments on news stories from each of the NFL’s 32 team websites found that fans of the Washington franchise have the weakest grasp on the English language.

    The Wall Street Journal enlisted Grammarly, an automated proofreading company, to check fans’ rants and found that Washington rooters made an average of 16.5 mistakes per 100 words used.

    The survey reviewed pulled 150 comments from each team’s website and reviewed those that were at least 50 words long. On average, 12,728 words per team site were checked for spelling, grammar and punctuation errors.

    Washington fans were far and away the worst, scoring 30% higher than fans of the New Orleans Saints, whose 12.4 mistakes per 100 words made them second-worst.

    The most skilled commentators were in Detroit, where Lions fans just made 4.2 mistakes per 100 words. The Packers (5.1), Eagles (5.2), Jets (5.6) and Chargers (5.7) rounded out the top 5.

    Giants fans — who generally perceive themselves to be the more civilized of the New York football fans — were the 12th-best commentators in the league with 6.2 mistakes per 100 words.

    the only thing that drives me crazy is when people get then and than mixed up
    and you notice the same people will do it over and over
    that drives me nutty
    everything else? it's the internet-it don't matter
