Grammar/spelling issues in match reports

The plural of 50 is 50s.

Never 50’s. 👍

Re: Grammar/spelling issues in match reports

Hello @MattHK,


Thanks for contacting us here on Crowd Support.


Telstra do not produce the video content or news articles in the app, I will forward

your feedback onto the AFL. It looks like there is a broken image in your post, was

this a screenshot or some form of evidence?


When Googling to check, it looks like it is 50's when referring to something

from the decade, so can be used in some instances.


1950s refers to the entire decade. 1950's is a reference to some fact or occurrence that belongs to the decade (e.g. The Twist was a 1950's dance). Though it may seem odd to have a number and letter next to each other without punctuation, the plural has no apostrophe.

Also, if you are referring to something the happens that is between 50 an 59, then it is also in the 50's as the 50 is a singular reference (not a plural) to that range of numbers.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

You are incorrect, although "50's" is a widely used mistake 50s is the correct way to write it.


If you are referring to ownership for the entire decade then 1950s' would be correct
