I've always said May-Lay.  Kinda like coyote is Keye-oh-tee.

I'm also tired of the media mispronouncing Madieu Williams name as   ma DEE you, when it's clearly ma Day you.

Another word that we often use instead of Melee is:

"Donnybrook" as in:

"The game was going fine, until a Doonybrook broke out on the field"

See.  He's good too.  Notice how the little finger is curled slightly and placed up a tad poised on the ring finger, and not just a straight fist?

Subtle, but it means he is a professional.

Could also be that like me his natural tendency when extending digits is to throw a set of long-horns and he's simply trying to stifle the urge.
