Recreation of an article previously deleted by afd. Still fails WP:NSPORT, as Mr Knowles has not played in a fully pro league, and still fails WP:GNG in the absence of significant coverage. Sir Sputnik (talk) 21:10, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete. Fails WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTBALL. However, I don't think the PROD needed to be replaced as the previous two AfDs were for a different player. Mattythewhite (talk) 21:23, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Redirect, to the team's page at best. The article is well written, but I can't see how this person need his own article as his team is a minor or school league. –BuickCenturyDriver 22:31, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
    • I think fans of Blackburn Rovers would be quite surprised to learn that their club plays in a "minor or school league"..... -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 07:40, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
      • I suspect there's some cross cultural confusion here. I think he means minor in the American sense of the term, (i.e. not top flight), and is referring to the reserves for which Mr. Knowles has actually played. Sir Sputnik (talk) 13:04, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
        • Delete and Protect Redirect In a sense, if the page is getting recreated over time then maybe it should be locked as a redirect until notibility can be established. There clearly is interest in the person and thus long-term non-perminant protection will stop the create and delete cycle for a while. –BuickCenturyDriver 01:40, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete per nom – no indication of notability, fails WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTY. A redirect would not be a good idea since his name doesn't appear to be a viable search term. Kosm1fent 15:27, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete - hasn't played in a pro league and not enough significant coverage, fails WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTBALL. GiantSnowman 21:51, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete - article about a footballer who hasn't played in a fully professional league, and hasn't represented his country at senior level, and fails WP:NFOOTBALL. Also fails WP:GNG. Mentoz86 (talk) 11:12, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
