you are seemingly arguing for the sake of arguing. Either phrase "Dawgs or Die" or "Cawgs or Gie" fits Ghost perfectly. There is absolutely nothing derogatory about either choice. I've been reading Ghost's posts on this board for 10 years or so. He is one of the few posters that I read every time I saw his post. He almost never failed to excite and uplift with his passion and unbridled enthusiasm...I loved reading his inside information from "the Man" and didn't really much care if it was right, wrong or just prognostication...it was fun and made me feel better about the future of the program. The board is less for his absence.

One of the basic characteristics of all Ghost's posts was a consistent butchery of the language through terrible typos, regular misspelling and irregular or nonexistent punctuation. And whether it came from typing on a phone or being a little inebriated or being tired and sleepy, it didn't and doesn't matter. Those of us who loved his posts didn't care about the inept language skills. It actually became part of the legend of Ghost. "Cawgs or Gie" just reminds us of both his passion and his propensity for typos. It's an awesome way to celebrate his legend on the Vent. It's funny. It's respectful. It's accurate. He sure didn't mind it...he laughed off "Cawgs or Gie" in more than one post. "Dawgs or Die" also shows his passion and is synonymous with his love for the Dawgs! Either would be great. Neither would be wrong.
