Hmmm. But surely Robin Hood is more commonly associated with Nottingham?
And to add to the confusion, East Midlands international ariport, which is supposed to be Nottingham's airport, is actually nearer Loughborough, in Leicester.
If they must insist on naming Sheffield-Doncaster international after a famous person (apparently its the same people responsible for 'John Lennon Liverpool international airport')then perhaps it would have been wiser to name it after a famous person that is actually from Sheffield or Doncaster such as... erm... Sean Bean? Joe Elliot? Kevin Keegan? The Chuckle Brothers? Help me out here.
If you can't beat them with brains, beat them with bullshit
