Neither do I, but according to him offsides is the American way of saying it. Apparently English people say "offside" in soccer and that's why Canadians say offside rather than offsides (I guess Canadians mimic British people?).

Much of my early exposure to hockey came playing NHL Faceoff when I was 10.



However, Emrick definitely says offside. (3:15)

1. Does all of the United States' hockey fans write for the USA Hockey website? Nope, just one person who messed up, like how Canadians mess up too when they say it.
2. How old are the Ducks? The word "offsides" was probably around before they even existed.
3. If today was the first time you heard the word "offsides," then today was the first time you've been watching hockey and posted on HF.

And the funny thing is, you have actually said the word "offsides" before.

So I'd love to know how it's possible that you never heard that word before today if you've used it about a year ago.

My little cousin used to say it in the 70's when he was about 8. I don't think he knew the U.S. existed. I straightened him out though. I'd go with blaming the Ducks though. Sound about right; stupid movie, stupid misuse of a word.

Yes, this is pretty much the case. Canadians speak 'English English' instead of 'American English'.

He clearly didn't. That sentence would have made much more sense if he said "offside."

Really? "Red line offside didn't exist". Or "red line offsides didn't exist". Which would you use?
Or, "secondary assist didn't exist" or "secondary assists didn't exist"??

Honestly, you could absolutely argue that, no sarcasm. Blame Webster's.

Language evolves and is not written in stone, but "offside" is.

That's a completely different context. C'mon man.

Even if we put that aside, how about the things I said before that?

So your theory is a Canadian or European invented the term and it just went rampant in the USA? Obviously it came from the states.

When did I say that? I'm just asking you to prove that it comes from the US, which you aren't doing at all.

Just like I can't prove the term "y'all" came from it states. I guess it could have been a Mexican? How am I supposed to prove that? There's overwhelming evidence it originate in the U.S.

But there are plenty of places that says that "y'all" originates in the US. I can't find anything on "offsides" and I doubt you found anything.

"Y'all" actually has it's on Wikipedia page. Find me something on "offsides" and maybe I'll believe you.

There's plenty to suggest "offsides" started the US. That's my point.

So you're saying that because the Ducks said it--even though the word has been around even before they existed--it originated in the US? Or is it that because it's on USA Hockey's website--which was written no earlier than 2001?

Hockey is a Canadian sport, so therefore Canadians started it. That sentence alone makes just as much sense as everything you've said in this thread.
