nottingham was where the Sherrif lived but the reason that he couldnt get to grips with Robin Hood was that Robin was clearly a Yorkshire lad that lived and lurked round the Sheffieid area - Robin of Loxley - the Loxley valley is in Sheffield not Nottingham.
So he would have sounded like this...

"Naah den, Ah want dee to put die gold darn dere on t'floor near dem dere trees."

Sheffield accent pronounces th as d - they are known affectionately as Dee-Dahs
