Re-sign ≠ Resign

Sorry to post a new thread and I'm guessing this will be locked but can we get this right this season?

Re-Sign: The player signed with his team again
Resign: The player quit

All I can promise is to try. I am certain that I screw this up although I try not to.

I understand where you are coming from, but it's usually perfectly clear which was meant from context. People still mess up there and their more often than not, so this doesn't seem to get solved easily either.

Is it REALLY that hard to tell what people mean that this required a thread?

Pascal Dupuis potato 4 years/$3.75M AAV. Still understandable in the context, isn't it?

I know, I know. It's just always been a pet peeve of mine because they have nearly exact opposite meanings.

I get it. There is this really enraging false way to build a comparative in German, that is insanely common on message boards and makes my blood boil. If I could twiddle a wand and make it happen for you, I would. Just saying, I would not get my hopes up.

No... who cares.



No player can resign, so there's never any confusion; therefore who cares.

Someone wrote that Meloche re-signed a few weeks ago and my head about exploded.

I've learned to accept this on this board though. Its seriously used wrong about 99% of the time so I just roll with it now.

File this along with:
