Nicknames

Paseka reminds me of American actor Dennis Haysbert.

Hello Mods or maybe just a clever bugger,

I know I'm asking a lot here but I'm wondering if someone can make a sticky thread outlining all the nicknames for every player?
I swear people have just started to make their own up! Mostly I get who posters are talking about but sometimes I'm pretty sure they're talking about their childhood teddy.

Or maybe people could just add it here. I'll start:

1. Tom Trbojevic aka Turbo
Thought I'd bring this back up after seeing a query in another thread on nicknames.

I still think and agree with @Budgewoi Eagle that we should have a sticky thread listing nicknames for every player. What a great time to do it before the season starts! If there are players without nicknames, like new ones, now's a good time to give them one. Any clever buggers?

And actual, official nicknames as well. Not some convoluted b/s that people feel to post to show just how amazingly "clever" they are!

eg "Miranda!"

who's Miranda?
Jake..!

Why?

Because Miranda is a moon of Uranus, and from moon you get moon-pie.

Moon-pie is a kind of 'confectionary' - like a wagon wheel
Confectionary = sweet
Sweet can also = cake
cake rhymes with Jake!

so Miranda = Jake.

lol - I'm going snowboarding now. buh bye
 
I just asked Mrs ge (who is fluent in French) about that - and she said it's "hardly a curse word...like it's worse than moron but not as bad as fcuk-face."

lololol

Also, I'm back from snowboarding.
And how is Mrs GE going?, had the pleasure to meet in Auckland way back.
 
We should list them so everyone knows who people are talking about.

@The Who almost exclusively uses nicknames , most I get but some I say , WTF!!

As long as TNI gets a run !!

“ the next immortal “ , and yes that’s our 9 not the ex Melbourne Storm one.

I was calling Ryan Matterson the 9th last year at the start of the season because all My Parra mates were raving about how he was going to make them contenders. Unfortunately they correctly pointed out there are 13 now !
 
I always find myself calling Rooster’s Victor Radley,
*Boo Radley.
(*To kill a mockingbird)
And, Jake Friend, Cobber.
Cowboy’s Scott Drinkwater would have to be “Thirsty”, you’d think.
I did work with a bloke in the NT named Freshwater,
he’s known as Salty.

She is going well (thanks for asking). Still has bad taste in this man - but that's good for me, and is working hard to keep me in the manner which I've become accustomed too.

(Don't tell her any of this, lol).


Sorry for the sidetrack, everyone.

So, Louis XIV had the nickname "the sun king" - not because he built Versailles or anything cool like that, but because he played Apollo (the sun God) in a play once.

there ya go!
 
I thought I'd refresh this for discussion whilst this is a 'dead' week. These nicknames are to my knowledge but feel free to edit/add/delete any.
