Name[edit]

As the other Ronnie Brown is an American football player is "footballer" a very good way of disambiguating this person? PatGallacher (talk) 00:14, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes; the term 'footballer' is never used by an American football fan to describe a player of that sport, they are always 'football players'. Cheers, GiantSnowman 00:19, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
Maybe so, but as Wikipedia is an international encyclopedia we cannot assume that some subtleties of American usage will be followed by everyone. PatGallacher (talk) 00:27, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
In that case what would your suggestion be? GiantSnowman 00:37, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
