What’s In a Name? - a Comprehensive List of Player Nicknames



Recommended Posts

I was silly enough to involuntarily volunteer myself to put up the bones of what will hopefully one day become something useful, on this forum. Yes, a comprehensive list of the nicknames of those players who occupy a position in the 2024 Players List. I’d like to see this pinned to the top of the forum, and not just for this year, but to go on for years to come.

I cannot take all of the credit for this (in fact, I can take very little credit), as the list that has passed to me for the compilation of this final list, was created by the hard work of @WalkingCivilWar … I have rearranged it to be in alphabetical order and added the players numbers in brackets next to each name. EZPZ. Thanks WCW!!

Anyone who knows the nicknames of players without one below, please feel free to pass it on or mention it in the comments, for inclusion.

Marty Hore doesn’t have a nickname? I have a few ideas I could pitch, but I think the best one is…

Martin. 

We have a huge Marty Hore fan in the DA. She has a jumper with his number on the back and above the number is the word ‘Dirty’ making it Dirty Hore, with a silent W. 😅 idk if Dirty is his nickname, but it’s funny.

Verrall’s is ‘Anchorman’ 

Lachie Hunter is ‘Hunts’ 

Are these, well, Verrall’s genuine, or made up by yourself? 😉

Nobody inside the club calls Melky by Milkshake. I think it might have been coined by the deebrief boys along with the equally embarrassing Spargypants.

Matthew Jefferson is also nicknamed 'the magician'.

Tom Fullarton's nickname at the Lions was 'fullcream' however I have no confirmation that it has carried over to the dees .

Thanks, @hardtack!

Dem bones (dem bones, dem dry bones 🎶) could be enhanced - calling all 'Landers, not just you 🙂 - by signifying which are the names the boys use for eachother and which are 'ours', e.g. BBB, I think?

And who'll step up with a girls list? 😮

friends of mine have specialised nicknames for some players...

judd mcvee - chris (although apparently he doesn't like it)

tom mcdonald - plugger (cos of his kickin action for goal and cos he can 'plug' any hole)

taj woewoedin - woey 2.0 (for obvious reasons)

ben brown - sideshow bob (cos of his former hairdo and the resemblance with a certain simpsons character)

You’re right. I added Milkshake because some folks on DL call him that. That’s the only time I hear it.

As for Spargo, you’re right again. Nobody calls him SpargiPants. Except for me… to his face. 😅 I greeted him with “how’re going, SpargiPants?!” a couple of weeks ago and he was chuffed. Well, the corners of his mouth turned upwards about a micron (one 1-thousandth of a millimeter) which by his standard means he’s deliriously happy. 😝

Knuckles is way better. Although neither nickname suits him imo. He’s sweetness personified.

I have heard the players and coach refer to Viney as just VIN many times. Sounded funny to hear because he has just always been VINES to me. 

Are these nicknames in the OP confirmed as official nicknames and not just fan assumed nicknames?

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
