Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: No consensus to move. There are no outright opposes, but from the two comments made, I get the sense that there are question marks over Collins' notability as an actor, and also the content of the article at present (highly limited as it is) does present him primarily as an American footballer.

Greg Collins (American football)Greg Collins (actor) – He hasn't played football since 1977. In fact, he has been an actor for years since. --Relisted.  — Amakuru (talk) 12:21, 20 December 2013 (UTC) George Ho (talk) 23:51, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

  • This probably makes sense, but it's not clear at this point that he passes WP:NACTOR. And if he isn't notable as an actor, it makes sense to disambiguate by what he is notable for, even if that was in the past. --BDD (talk) 00:22, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment. Again, it depends on if he is more notable as a football player than an actor. I think this is what WP:NCPDAB refers to as trying to "limit the [disambiguator] tag to a single, recognizable and highly applicable term". In addition, we usually name these biography articles based on what they are most notable and commonly-known for, like actress Grace Kelly instead of Princess Grace or Grace of Monaco. It does not matter what Collins is doing recently, or how many more years he was an actor as oppose to a football player. As of now, this article seems to be formatted in a way, with the current infobox and navboxes, that makes it appear that his football playing days were more notable.
