Legit question for any Poly/Melanesian friends in the forum. Seriously what’s worse, us white people pronouncing names the way they are spelt OR butchering the correct pronunciations?

I mean I completely respect making the effort to pronounce them correctly, but I cringe listening to footy these days. The commentators actually stop and think before they say their names now and they still make a mess of it.

If that was Teddy a player would be off and Karen Robinson would be reading the riot act.
