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.

That's a lot of eff beat out of one person. I doubt he could cover a Brownie zoned in on a cookie sale. This makes me extremely happy.

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.
