For most people,football might just be a game, but for me,it is a way of life.

Is the above sentence correct in terms of punctuation? Or should I wtite this in the following manner:-

For most people football might just be a game, but for me it is a way of life.

  • I would keep all of the commas except for the last one. (Which is different from both of your variations.) Also, you need a space after every comma. – Jason Bassford Jan 28 at 6:01

"For most people football might just be a game, but for me it is a way of life" is just fine, but you could even leave out the remaining comma.

The first and last commas in the first sentence are wrong. The test here is if you have a comma not followed by a conjunction, the offset phrase ought to be detail, and not strictly needed.

That might render "For most people it is a way of life", which is clearly not the intention of the original sentence.

  • l think the first comma is fine. Why is it wrong? – Mido Mido Feb 27 at 8:56
  • It doesn't clarify anything. It's extraneous. – Hack Saw Mar 1 at 11:10
