Player nicknames

Recommended Posts

Reading training reports and some other topics I sometimes get confused with player nicknames (I'm sure I'm not the only one).

And to further confuse things, I even get the impression that some players have more than one nickname.

Would someone be kind enough to list player nicknames for me/us thus making it easier to follow some topics.

Add a Y to their last or first names and you have a great start.

We all know N. Jones as "chunk', but I've heard others call him "doctor". Anyone know where that came from?

Is it the bald wheelchair dude from X-Men?

Great thread - hope we can cumulatively document it. 

I for one know no-ones nick name - mind I have a few personal ones when they're playing like flogs.

'Doctor Jones' is probably a reference to Indiana Jones, via the awful Aqua song - 'Dr Jones, Jones, calling doctor Jones" repeated ad nauseum.

Great, thank you. I suppose most are self explanatory but a few show a bit of imagination Nibler, Chunk.

However is Christian Petracca also CP5? And Clayton Oliver, Clarry Choo Choo or similar?

I would also nominate another nickname for Max Gawn: Rasputin!

Angus Brayshaw's grandfather is Sticks and his father is Sticks so Angus should also be Sticks.

Wow, the geniuses that came up with some of those nick names

Thought Smithy, Wattsy, Kenty, Harmesy , Hunty  and Whitey were just brilliant.

Personally, I like naming the combination of Gawn, Jones and Viney as The Beard, The Brick and The Hammer.

You're welcome.

I was just jotting down what I had heard the players and staff call one another (their actual nicknames).

Clarry Choo Choo and CP5 I would consider fan nicknames commonly used on the forum for either fun or shortness (similar to VB for Vandenberg).

If you would like I can add those in brackets next to each player? or feel free to take my post above and edit your original post to begin the database (like the contracts thread). :)

All those without the question mark and asterisk I picked up from watching player and staff interviews, as well as mic'ed up training and game day footage.

I avoided D'land and fan related nicknames.

One of my main reasons for asking for player nicknames was to better understand some of the training reports. I, like many others hang out for the reports but when nicknames are used instead of proper names the reports can get a little confusing. OK I'm fine with Wattsy and Kenty for instance but Bull and Taz would have me stumped (I'd probably think Taz referred to Colin Garland)!.

i think it would be helpful to have "fan" nicknames added as they do frequently appear on this site and in training reports.

Please excuse my ignorance, but I'm not sure how to start a database.

Again thank you for your input, and monoccular's as well.
