The ultimate nickname thread :)

Okay, I thought it would be cool if he we could get all the nicknames this forum and the public has for all top fifty players. I will start by putting a few out there and then you guys can quote my post, remove the quote marks and add any nicknames you remember seeing/hearing.

Nicknames can be pro or anti-player.

You can add as many or as few nicknames as you like, hopefully lots of people will contribute and we will have a super-duper nickname resources thread. :)

Note: Just one more thing, all nicknames which are used are allowed, if they are not nice to your fave then just live with it. :wavey:
