– The two Josh Kennedys were originally disambiguated by initial, until they were moved to their current titles in September 2014, with the explanation that they were "not known by initial" [1]. This is inaccurate, as the AFL's website (and all other football media as far as I'm aware) distinguish the players based on their initials. (Disambiguation by team would be non-standard and is not really an option, given that both players have played for multiple teams). Initials are far more recognisable to the reader than date of birth, and disambiguation by initials is already used for other VFL/AFL players (e.g. the two Graeme Andersons, the two George Chapmans, and the two Arthur Edwardses).

  • Support Though I don't think the other players is relevant, The two Josh Kennedy are definitely disambiguated by initial in the media and by fans. --SuperJew (talk) 11:29, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose I'd rather keep article naming convention consistent, and the practice of disambiguation by initials is an old practice that we've been moving away from. No problem with having Josh J and Josh P as redirects. Aspirex (talk) 11:57, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose Agree with Aspirex, disambiguate by initial is really a last resort in the guidelines of the project and the project has made a strong move to move away from these types of dabs. I don't know if many people in the public would refer to them as Josh P. Kennedy and Josh J. Kennedy anyway, and if that was their search term then having it as a redirect is appropriate (which I think it currently is anyway). Flickerd (talk) 12:10, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose We've flipped/flopped enough on these, stick with the by year style. Neither option is ideal for everyone, but the by year can at least be standardised across all duplicate named players (like the Mitch Browns, Nathan Browns and Scott Thompsons. (and slowly convert most of the old middle initial letter style ones to born ones). The-Pope (talk) 03:47, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Support Fuck yeah :D — Preceding unsigned comment added by 101.182.61.177 (talkcontribs) 05:01, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
