The result of the move request was: Not moved (non-admin closure). Few good reasons given to ignore the established MOS. Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 10:02, 13 January 2013 (UTC)



Air raid offenseAir Raid offense – Sources and Google tend to favour this format SirTrunkerton (talk) 14:41, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose. Some sources like that styling, others do not. As usual, sources conflict. For that reason Wikipedia has a manual of style (itself based on consensual choices from other major style guides). WP:MOSCAPS favours avoidance of unnecessary capitalisation, so its recommendation is clear in this case. I have fixed several caps throughout the article for conformity with WP:MOSCAP, and other recommendations at WP:MOS. Please respect that consistency in the article till this RM is settled. I would support, by the way, a move to Air raid offense (American football). Most of the world is given no clue, as things stand, that the article is about a ball game somewhere. This is an international encyclopedia. NoeticaTea? 23:55, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support. It's the Air Raid offense. Appending " (American football)" is reasonable in a vacuum, but none of the equivalent offensive systems use the convention presently, see Template:American football strategy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.216.228.112 (talk) 04:10, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose per MOS as detailed by Noetrica Tiggerjay (talk) 08:17, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Coaches & Teams + Formatting[edit]

There are a few listed coaches who would not consider themselves air raid coordinators. These include Art Briles (who runs a similar spread but had developed it at Stephenville HS before joining Mike Leach at TTU), and Kevin Sumlin who never ran the air raid at OU when he was OC there and does not directly run the offense at A&M, as he's more of a CEO-type coach. Robert Anae does not run the air raid at BYU, though he has many air raid concepts. Tony Franklin is the creator of a separate branch of the air raid system. While he worked under Mumme for a few years, he ultimately did his own thing. Thanks to his marketing, his system is what the majority of high school air raid teams run. Neal Brown is one of Tony's more successful disciples. Sonny Dykes is an interesting coach because he is a Leach disciple, but his OC is Tony Franklin, leaving him with a foot in both branches.

The table of air raid teams is messy, nigh unreadable. It should list the teams that have run an air raid and a range of years that it was run.

Article needs a near complete rewrite. Should also reference smart football heavily.[1] Kayakyakr (talk) 20:42, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
