stack level too deep

I have a problem
why do I get a stack level too deep error when I just add
def new
@speler = Speler.new
end

I try to figure it out but I'm after 2 days of searching out off
options
I run ruby 1.8.6
and rails 2.0.2
this is the error message in full
SystemStackError in SpelersController#new

stack level too deep

RAILS_ROOT: D:/Documenten/NetBeansProjects/Speler

Have you named your controller Speler?

no the nme of the controller is Spelers

Spelers or SpelersController? It needs to be the latter.
