Player Nicknames - Part 1

So, we have a tradition here on The Phinsider of calling players anything but their given name.  Why?  Why not (us).

It gave us things like The Flying Squirrel and the Rothweiler.

Plus, favorites like CP10 and DC$.

We also had some controversy as debates continued between Mach 19 and The Ginnja.

As such, I thought we should do a nickname post., so we can nominate and then decide on nicknames for our players.  I am going to list about 10 players (give or take in each post) below, and ask you all to please nominate some nicknames.  Once we make it through nominations of all 53 players (and some might not get know, not everyone deserves a nickname...yet), I'll do a post to vote on names, and then we will be set for the year...

Until we decide to debate a different name.



Without further ado (I'll place nominations next to players' names)...
