Expongement is something that comes after to completely remove a record or a name from a record, or to make it hidden. An expongement is to prevent something from counting against you again later and is a legal action..


This is the NFL brother... There are no legal proceedings going on. I suppose the next step is for the 12th man to petition SCOTUS?
Exponge isn't a word. expunge | Example Sentences at Dictionary.com Mobile. You can erase anything and in this case he is erasing his suspension. Yes "expunge" can be used in law but there is no precedent to its exclusivity. I gave you a dictionary definition with proper usage, read number 3.

There, their, they're.... No need to go quoting the internet. It is however exactly what I expected you to come back with. I'm a function over form personality. You think my web browser didn't identify it's spelling as incorrect? You think I didn't view all of the usages via a dictionary?

Ironically your correcting my spelling of a word you are using that is contextually incorrect.

The etymology of expunge is Latin, meaning to erase. Since there is an appeal in action there is nothing to erase yet. An expungement can not happen until the appeals process is over.

It has been my experience that all Seahawk fans are legal experts, you'll have to pardon my assumption that you knew the correct usage.

To ex-sponge is to erase a record. Not to overturn a decision. Read the definitions you so generously provided, they state exactly what I am saying.

The suspension can be overturned, or vacated. The record of him failing the drug test can be expunged.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Maybe you should make up a police report about the Seahawks getting assaulted by the Niners? That should help you get over the Aints not making the playoffs.

Oh, liar.

You are referencing the written file, I am denoting the actual suspension. Your argument was there is no ambiguous usage of the word expunge and that isn't true as I have already prefaced with dictionary.com.

No. I argued that you used it arbitrarily. Ambiguity in a statement benefits the party that did not draft it. The onus is on you and all you have done is crawfish and deflect.

Back on point. The suspension (verb) can not be expunged.

Are you obtuse?? WOW. First you make up the word "exponge" twice, which doesn't even exist.

2nd there will be legal proceedings if they ban Browner, hence he has threatened them with a federal lawsuit and he will ask that the level three offense be "expunged" from his file. Files can be expunged that are not necessarily federal records. You have have contradicted yourself and are only making the matter worse.

I don't think you understand the difference between the literal and figurative. "erased" can be figurative as to, "Erase from ones mind" and can be literal as in, "erased from ones record" which was substantiated from my dictionary precedent. Sorry chump but YOU LOSE!!! I was nice but gloves come off now..

Instead of making yourself look like a fool, you should have clarified "to which" use was I to declare the word "expunge" in the original interpretation.

Re: Sherman expected blowout win, blames loss on bad calls

OK.... it appears the subject has veered far enough from the OP.

Time to move on.
