- “…due to the amount of penalties being thrown…”
Flag on the play!
We’ve run afoul of that old “countable items” vs. “glop” rule.
- We use amount in conjunction with glop — or, to be precise, singular mass nouns. Like wrongdoing. You turn off the game due to the amount of wrongdoing by the officials.
- We use number to talk about countable items — like penalties, and errors, and stupid misguided over-zealous holding calls.
Either way, we turn off the game.
