One common error when trying to get your verb / subject agreement right is when using singular/plural and countable/uncountable nouns, such as in the following example.
- The Government (uncountable) doesn’t / don’t mind deficits.
- But, (always a “but”), a team is made up of many players (and has an S) so it is plural: The Toronto Blue Jays doesn’t / don’t have any weak players. You could use plural or singular: Toronto (sing.) doesn’t / They (plural) don’t have weak players.
- The same with Colorado Avalanche – Colorado doesn’t / They don’t have a chance at the Cup.
