I have noticed during the last year or so that when some people in the media refer to a club’s squad or roster of players they are calling it their “list”, which is the word that those AFL morons use for it. As far as I’m concerned, a list is something you make before you go shopping, and not a suitable word to describe a group of players contracted to a football team. On the rare occasions when I happen to see some AFL coverage, I’ll hear these stupid phrases like “We’ve got a deep list this year” or “We made some improvements to our list” and I’m just :crazy. The fact that the term has worked its way into the NRL pisses me off. I heard Cameron Williams use it during the Grand Final coverage and it made me frown.
Does this annoy anyone else as much as it annoys me?
