- Delete'. Looks like vanity. Not every person to invent something is notable. -R. fiend 16:07, 1 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- Keep. I'd consider Nike Air sneakers a notable invention. His full name should be Marion Frank Rudy. — RJH 17:17, 1 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- Keep, but with reservations. Article needs expansion. Megan1967 03:17, 2 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- Its a copyvio. I don't think that a few patents for sneaker design makes someone notable, perhaps he could be mentioned in the Nike Air Article, merge--nixie 04:39, 2 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- Given that it is a copyvio, delete if a temp file isn't written. However, given the prevalence of the product it would warrant a keep if a decent version is written. Capitalistroadster 09:43, 2 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- If that's all there is to say about him, I'd have to argue for delete even of a non-copyvio version. However, a mention in the Nike Air article would be welcome. Rossami (talk) 23:37, 2 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- I would agree, if we had a Nike Air article, but it seems all we have is a brief mention of the shoe in the Nike, Inc. article, which is really all it needs, I'd imagine. There are millions of inventions, and most of their inventors are not encyclopedic. -R. fiend 15:19, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
