The correct name is 'meniscus', but unfortunately sportspeople persist in talking about the 'cartilage' when in fact they mean the meniscus. This can cause confusion with the white gristle that covers the ends of bones, which is also called cartilage (hyaline cartilage, joint cartilage or articular cartilage).
