That's the thing, Tim Cahill pronounces his name that way. Ronnie Moran used to pronounce his MorANN, Liam and Noel pronounce the second g in Gallagher. So if people pronounce their own name that way, what do you do? Tell them they're doing it wrong?

What pisses me off most of all is that the majority of British sports commentator's call Ireland "island" Angry

Pronounce your f**king r"s  Thumbs Up
