Just going by what I remember these guys being called by the media, fans, etc.

Example:

Remember when Dan Fouts called Demeco Ryans "De-MECKO"?

I think the Texans need to make it easy on the announcers, sports reporters and fans.

Set a standard. S or no S. Pick one. Double letters or not. Pick one

Consistency, that is what we need.

Andrew Johnson. This one I didn't hear or read from the media, but from someone I knew who was trying to talk football at work. I wonder what 'Dre would think if someone called him Andrew Johnson. Lol.

If Nnegan doesn't watch it, Negan could soon run out of letters. Egan is kind of an ass though.

Not Texan related but as a hispanic male, I can't for the life of me understand why the media insist on mispronouncing Mark Sanchez' name. It's pronounced with an ON sound not ANNE sound. I could understand if he had a hispanic name with a rolling r or even if there was one of those n with the squiggly mark over it. But it doesn't and it can't be really that hard to say S-on-chez!

To be honest I blame Mark Sanchez for that. He should correct people.

Honestly it's a northern (or maybe just non-border-state) thing... everybody pronounces "Sanchez" with the -anne- sound up here.

I haven't seen anybody mention Demario Williams.

The good news is that even within the sports media, there's probably not anyone stupid enough to call him Olbmario Williams.

It's sort of like how people insist on spelling my last name with an S when it's supposed to be with a Z. "Espinosa" vs "Espinoza" You sort of just get tired of correcting people and live with it, and sometimes embrace it.

In the NCAA Football video game, the announcers don't know how to pronouce "Espinoza", but they knew how to pronouce "Espinosa." They almost sound the same, so I decided to use the S spelling whenever creating my player, lol.

I remember hearing Demarco Ryans once. Might have been Lombardi?

"David Carr"
I mean, for crying out loud, his name is Matt Schaub. Yes, he has the same number and plays the same position, but that's not even the french pronunciation.

Yep, a friend and I spotted that as well. Believe he completed the trinity by calling the team 'Texas' in the same segment too.
