"Issues" and "Problems"
The MLB commentator today declared that certain players had "issues" with their performance. WRONG!
Those players had performance PROBLEMS; the managers had ISSUES with how to overcome the problems.
"Issues" has become a fashionable substitute term for "problems" — but they are not the same. As I said on a previous post: “Problems” are problems, and “issues” are issues. A broken arm is a problem; what to do about it is an issue.
