  • It's not Bronco's...it's Broncos

    Just see this some times and it's really annoying. Apostrophes are for possession...nearly all the time. So, it's QBs, RBs...unless it's the QB's fault or the RB's fumble. Or when talking about the the apostrophe's placement...you could use one there.

    So Broncos' fans...(in the plural just an apostrophe no extra "s" when the word ends in an "s".)

    We are not the Bronco who happens to own some things...but we are the Broncos who own the Raiders....unless Orton is in...then that was a catastrophe with an apostrophe at the end of McDaniels.

          Actually it is not Broncos, it is Broncos' the apostrophe is being used as a possessive.

                  LOL... This is pretty common. Some people tend to slap an apostrophe on anything ending in the letter s. Apostrophes indicate ownership, while just ending in s indicates a plural.

                  While we're at it, we could also mention the epidemic of confusion between the words there and their.

                  No big deal to me, I just blow by it.

                        In the article...we are Broncos' fans. But...the team is the Broncos without an apostrophe at the end b/c the title of our team is more than one Bronco.

                        Denver does not belong to the Broncos. At least in its usage.

                              Tell me, then, Why do "former Broncos" say "I'm a former Denver Bronco".
