The Nicknames Thread

Postby Bourne

Post any nicknames that are used for players here, should make life easier for some people who don't know which players are being talked about ... keep them relatively clean :chuckle: Here's a few to start off:

Ronnie O'Sullivan = The Rocket
Steve Davis = The Nugget
Joe Swail = The Outlaw
Neil Robertson = Robbo, Jono
Shaun Murphy = The Magician
Martin Gould = FBW
Judd Trump = The Ace In The Pack, The Juddernaut, Bristol Ragdoll
Mark Selby = The Jester from Leicester

My campaign for getting Judd to be referred to as Top Trump has been shockingly ignored. :grrr:

My little girl calls Mark Selby 'Handsome Mark'. I don't know where she got it from :john: I'm going to campaign to get his name changed to that on here, like the little kittens thing (that's for a bad word, right?)

I don´t have any actual nicknames proposals but you can get some really funny headlines after matches considering player´s names. Here´s some I can remember during the years:

Ford motors 147
White too bright for Gray
Even Stevens (after session ended draw)
Sick as a Parrot
Day lasts hour (after O´Sullivan took just 58 minutes to beat him 5-0)
Bond is back !
Licence to pot
On Song
Rocket lifts from the launch pad
Captain in cruise control
Murphy´s law

Here´s a list http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sn ... _nicknames

What I found quite funny are:

Ken Doherty - The Ranelagh Rascal
Dave Harold - Pride of the Potteries
Andy Hicks - The Toast of Tavistock
Marcus Campbell - Dumbarton Destroyer

rofl rofl rofl

On a personal note, funny coincidence is that being a huge fan of snooker, my birthday is 14.7. So taking the dot off, it´s 147. These are just those funny coincidences life throws at you

Ronnie may say that in public but I know for a fact he is bothered about staying in the top 16 and has been following the rankings extremely closely all season.
