Not to offend anyone that created this but shouldn't it read, "NYG <u>ARE</u> ALL IN" ?

Actually, one can refer to a team in the singular. Even though it sounds awkward, it isn't incorrect.</P>

New York Giant is all in.

Really? Use the team in the singular, give an example.

It all depends on if you view the team as a single entity or as a collection of indivduals. Like I said, it sounds awkward, as most of the time we refer to teams in plural, but that doesn't make it grammatically incorrect.</P>


It's no different than saying, "I hope Congress is seriously considering voting down SOPA." (Sorry for the political reference, but it was one of the easier comparisons I could make). Congress is made up of hundreds of people, yet you refer to in the singular.</P>

I'm not an English major, but the big difference I would say is the "s" on the end of Giants. It's not "I hope Congresses is". Since it is NY Giants and not NY Giant, I would say that it can not be taken as a single entity.

It doesn't matter if there is an s at the end of the word, because the term, "New York Giants," refers to one team which means you can refer to it in the singular.Like I said, it's awkward, but not incorrect. Likewise, wanting to use the plural verb is acceptable, too. </P>

My profile pic is of me in front of the three Lombardi trophies and four Halas trophies. It's been there since the first Dallas game and I wouldn't dare change it...

All of you need to get it right, the name of the team is the" New York Football Giants." One Entity.
