RIGHT ‘ON’?

2 January, 2012

Let’s hope this silly language fad doesn’t make it out of football.  A typical utterance goes something like “He has 37 tackles on the season.”  How about “this season,” or “this year,” or “during this season”?

It’s purely a fad with no justification other than to sound like every other commentator.  In the words of a funny bit on one network, C’mon, man.  Does this make 2 posts so far on this year?  That’s lousy English, but it does make 2 posts on this subject.
