    As I say, I agree it’s not worth getting that upset about.

    I did once email the BBC about 20 years ago for making the same error. They sent back an apology and updated the name 24 hours later. They probably have some kid updating the website who doesn’t know much about football.

    THE TRUTH IS THERE AND WITH IT I GO TO THE END OF THE WORLD .

    "Notts Forest" doesn't really annoy me but I can see why it does some people, Notts being an abbreviation for the county rather than the city

    Maybe a bit of a silly analogy but you'd be annoyed as a Blackburn Rovers fan if someone called your team "Lancs Rovers"

    I think most of it probably stems from a time when Notts County were a main rival

    Lancs Rovers would be some deliberately getting it wrong though. I suspect the majority of people who write Notts Forest are ignorant people who don't realise they're making a mistake and therefore hard to get that annoyed with them (or Derby fans who try and aggravate but it's easy to ignore them).

    Like I said, perhaps an extreme example

    To be honest whenever someone uses Notts Forest to me it just makes them look ignorant rather than making me annoyed

    Who was the Derby player who, in fairly recent times, referred to them as Derby City in a live interview?

    It’s their American Football team, the Liverpool Stealers.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Bloody lazy and unprofessional from the BBC! If they want to abbreviate, then Nott'm would suffice.

    Its a name. Might as well just use racist terms to describe people then, surely they cant be offended by a few letters?

    Everything is relevant, they get it right or they bugger off. Dont report on us or use our name. Id sue if I was the club.

    On what basis would you sue?

    Misrepresentation only refers to contract law

    The only claim you could make in tort would be one of defamation, specifically libel (slander has to be a verbal statement)

    If i was rich enough to own Forest and be in a position to sue, id do whatever. Money wouldnt be a problem, it would be to prove a point.

    BBC have apologised to me anyway, ive won this battle

    I'd refer to Nottingham (City) as Notts. ie Fancy going to Notts for a beer tonight.
    No big issue.

    Interesting. I grew up in West Bridgford, we'd always talk abut going into town.

    "Notts" was either the other football team or the cricket team.
