His name... I really hate the nickname "Psycho". Although I really hate nicknames in general. It makes it seem like SGU is a kid's show (which I guess makes sense as they're making it fora younger audience, which doesn't make much sense at all). Although I guess there's still hope it could change. Funny how I'm writing on the talk page of a non-existent article...—Anubis 10545 03:53, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

  • We don't have to add the "Pyscho" part into the article title. We can just have it at Ron Stasiak. -- SFH 05:07, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, I don't care so much about the article, I just don't want them to call him that in the show. It's just idiotic.—Anubis 10545 06:46, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
I never much cared for the nickname "Shaft" either, but that one was used sparingly. In the interview with Brad Wright on Joseph Mallozzi's blog, he talks in length about how you shouldn't judge characters by their wrap sheets, because they will always look two dimensional on paper. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they'll use the nickname "Psycho" as infrequently as they did "Shaft". —Ka'lel 07:56, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
We can only hope :). I always tend to judge things prematurely. By that token, All of the character descriptions of the SGU characters all sound the same, and equally as cliche.—Anubis 10545 08:00, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, they changed his name to Ronald Greer. Phew, dogged a bullet with that one... :) Now well just have to see how good the actual character is. :) —Anubis 10545 00:59, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

we actually still need an official source for the name change. Same with a lot of the other recent character changes. That SCI-FI Wire post didn't say anything about this being the same guy as "Psycho". —Ka'lel 04:20, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
They sure list a lot of characters... it's going to take the whole 3 hours of Air just to introduce them all :).—Anubis 10545 04:32, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
@Jaymach: I changed the first reference from Gateworld to where they most likely got their information, MGM. The MGM story is also a confirmation that Greer is the same person as "Stasiak", because it includes his character background, which is identical. The Gateworld story covering the same thing didn't confirm this, it said his name was changed, but gave no evidence of it. Cheers. —Ka'lel 17:48, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

AgeEdit

I think they should make him older then he is.... I don't think there is one Master Sergeant in the whole USMC that is younger then 30...

If he was older, it wouldn't look right. You wouldn't like him if he was insane and old, but insane and young is awesome. Sman789 (talk) (Contribs) 23:11, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
30 would be exactly right, if Ronald Greer joined the Marine corps at 18 years of age and made every single promotion on time every time. With the Marine Corps time in service and time in grade requirements 11 years 10 months is about the fastest you can possibly make it to Msgt.72.48.76.18 00:35, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

I really dislike this guy Edit

Just wondering if I'm the only one that pretty much can't stand him? Kryptonian Sorcerer (talk) (Contribs) 03:55, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

He's growing on me. Smith's delivery of Greer's lines in Part 3 made me smile. "You think that's why I'm annngrah?" "You do that again, and I'm gonna put a bullet...in your face." "WALK OR DIE HERE. It's your choice, Mr...decision maker." All epic and my favourite scene of the episode. He also went back and saved Scott. Cheers. MolocKal'el T | C - 04:17, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
He's one of my favourite characters in this show! I loved the Mr...decision maker bit and the joking around about Telford, in light,I'm starting to see him as the Universe version of Teal'c and Ronon, loyal but will kill you the second you go out of line.--joecool280 (talk) (Contribs) 14:50, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Greer in the cold-open of Light (the part before the opening credits) is my favourite of the monologues so far. His attitude towards certain death throughout the episode made him my favourite character. MolocKal'el T | C - 16:53, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Ohhh I forgot about that bit, hell yeah "going out in a blaze of glory"--joecool280 (talk) (Contribs) 19:36, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
He's my favorite character, don't any of you dis him :D Sman789 (talk) (Contribs) 23:11, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
He is my favourite character. I loved it when he knocked Spencer out cold. ☆The Solar Dragon (talk)☆ 22:16, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
i know its an old thread but im adding something lol, i really hated this charachter to begin with but he is fast becoming my favourite

20 years old... Really? Edit

Honestly, that has to be a typo. You are a high speed Marine if you are a Corporal (E-4) by the time you are 20. A 20 year old with the serious insubordination problem like Greer would've been NJP'd so many times he wouldn't have a single stripe left. Not to mention that it is impossible to attain that rank in such a short time due to time in rank requirements. Besides Sergeant Majors (E-8) tend to be crusty old guys in their mid-late 30's or early 40's. It messes with my "willing suspension of disbelief" to have a baby-face behind that particular rank insignia. No Top sergeant that I ever met had a face that didn't look like a saddlebag. Whenever I see that guy I think, "what clueless Hollywood a$$hat decided to cast this baby faced putz as a USMC senior NCO?"

Rank 'trivia' Edit

Just to elaborate, as I wasn't able to fit everything I wanted into the edit sumamry: The trivia bit I removed stated that Ronald Greer is a Master Sergeant in the Marines, pointed out that most other characters call Greer 'Sergeant', and argued that this is incorrect because "Enlisted Marines are always addressed by their full rank with few exceptions", and as such, other characters would call Greer "Master Sergeant".

The issue here, of course, is that the rule that "Enlisted Marines are always addressed by their full rank with few exceptions" only really applies to Marines. It's a Marine Corps specific protocol. And most other characters are either civilians or Air Force. Neither group is likely to know this particular Marine protocol, as civilians are generally ignorant of some of the more specific "do's and don't's" of the military, and I can personally attest that, in the Air Force, Sergeants, no matter the specific rank, are generally referred to simply as "Sergreant", not by their full rank. The only real exception to this is Chief Master Sergeant (generally referred to as "Chief"), though there is somewhat of a trend to also apply this to Senior Master Sergeant (calling them "Senior"), mainly by Security Forces.

You are correct I want to add that there are many other Marine characters, all are of lower rank then Greer and address him as Sir. Lowriders95s10 (talk) (Contribs) 01:19, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
