Notability???!! Willplatts (talk) 20:24, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Playing for Blackpool makes him notable per WP:ATHLETE - "People who have competed at the fully professional level of a sport" as Blackpool play in a fully professional league. Dpmuk (talk) 10:49, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

I still maintain that this article shouldn't be in an encyclopedia, both because he ISN'T notable (you can't have an article about everyone who has played about 10 matches..), and because it's crap. There's hardly any information, because there is nothing interesting about him. Willplatts (talk) 13:12, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Note also that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability_(people)#Additional_criteria states that the above criteria do not guarantee that an article should be included. Willplatts (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 13:29, 12 May 2009 (UTC).

Well Wikipedia works on consensus and the WP:ATHLETE guidelines were developed by consensus. It's very unlikely that this page will be deleted at WP:AfD with that in mind. I am aware that the additional criteria section states that it's not a guarantee that an article should be included but in several months of watching AfDs I've never seen a player who's played even one game in a fully professional league be deleted. Additionally although there's hardly any information in the article this is not a reason to delete - it's a reason to expand the article. There's certainly more information out there that could be added. Dpmuk (talk) 14:23, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
