ABF there are more than one meaning for a technician, (b) i think desribes murray quite well
Thanks for the copy/ paste.... Im fully aware of what a technician is ... Ive been a professional engineer for 20 yrs.
A Technician whether in scientific or engineering terms is qualified to Associate Diploma level or less. A scientist or engineer is a undergraduate degree level or higher ed qualified .... and so whilst there is dual meaning as per dict quote...most people associate a tech with the criteria ive stated. That is why i believe it is an underwhelming nickname for someone who has reached the pinnacle of his sport.
Anyhooo ...movin on
