    re-sign... this means that someone has signed a new contract with the team and will be there in the future


    resign.... this means that the individual has retired or something of that sort





    please make note of this... it is the off season and they will come up all the time

    in order not to confuse everyone... use the correct term

    thank-you

    People aren't going to learn the distinction. I think you'd better just re-sign yourself to that fact.

    If this is at attempt at grammatical irony, you should have used a smiley face. :rolleyes:

    This is a pet peeve of mine too.

    Send me a PM and I'll correct any re-sign/resign errors that I don't find first.

    It's really quite unfortunate that the two are homonyms and (almost) antonyms as well. I was fooled earlier tonight by the news that Diego Gutierrez had "resigned"... :rolleyes:

    maybe he was just resigned to the fact that he had to re-sign since he had no other offers.

    I'm not sure how to interpret your comment. Perhaps you could write back, using some bold text, asterisks and at least one illustration you've drawn freehand and then scanned into your computer.

    I'm really temped to sticky this so that people can point out this mistake (as it is also a bit of a pet peeve of mine as well). Maybe just a PM to any of the Mods and we'll take care of it.

    I believe we should institute a moratorium on the declaration of pet peeves on BS.

    How often is biannually, once every two months or twice every month?

    Why do flammable and inflammable mean the same thing?

    If it's one foot and two feet, why isn't it one boot and two beets?

    If the effect you were looking for from this thread was to affect the level of grammar on the boards, I think you'll be disappointed because you cannot effect such a change in that manner. ah ********. :confused:

    There were a few grammatical errors you missed in your post. You actually used "to" correctly in one spot.

    This thread is going to give me a brain aneurysm.
