Your Spelling Prowess is Strong

Get this. The Wall Street Journal did a study, using Grammarly, where they sampled comments of 50 words or longer from every NFL team’s website and determined how many spelling or grammatical errors there were per 100 words. Green Bay Packers fans had the second fewest errors per 100 words, with an average of 5.1.

Surprisingly, Detroit Lions fans were best, with just 4.2 errors per 100 words.

Who was worst?

Washington fans, at 16.5 errors per 100 words. That really comes as no surprise here, considering it’s 2015 and they support a team with a blatantly racist mascot.

Now, we know you’ve been waiting for this.

Who do you think was worst among the NFC North? We’ve obviously already narrowed it down, but that doesn’t matter, does it? There could only be one answer here.

The stain on humanity that is the Minnesota Vikings fan base.

When it comes to ignorance, they always win!

Vikings fans were 26th in this study, with 11.4 errors per 100 words.

    If it was not for the Vikings and their fan base we would be the best. In order to comment on Vikings it is easy to misspell common phrases or words that have to be used to describe Vikings (this includes you Jared Allen) and their fans such as:

    Lewd and lascivious.
    Carnal knowledge.
    Felonious assault.
    Inbred hillbillies.
    Cluster fuck ( also used to describe last 5+ mins 2014 NFCC game)

      those viking fans are known for sticking the tongue out, grabbing it by the end and holding it while saying “I am a pirate ship” with perfect enunciation. try it, it isn’t easy!
