    Iginla

    Is he going to be "Iggy" all year?

    If so, you just simply won't see me here as often.

    This isn't a "Change it now or lose me forever" BS post.  I'm just preparing. 

    He's not a buddy.  He's not a friend.  He's not a guy anyone even knows.  It's such a stupid name.  I really cannot take reading it all year.

    The difference between "Iggy" and "Iginla" is two keystrokes.

    It's less than optimal, but I'm okay with abbreviations.  It's the nicknames that kill me.

    If I didn't occasionally use abbreviations, my posts would be even longer.  No one wants that.

    But you won't hear "Iggy" from me.  Iggy's in the Stooges.  Iginla's on the Bruins.

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    why does it bug you so much. just ignore it. you point out that it doesn't take much to type iginla instead of iggy. true. but it also doesn't take much to just ignore it. you know who they mean by iggy, isn't that all that really matters. As long as people don't butcher the spelling of someones full name, I don't really care.

    If we are axing 'Iggy', can we at least get rid of 'Shawno' too?

    In my eyes, there are two types of people who follow sports.

    People like me

    People not like me

     

    People like me follow the games and enjoy watching them.  We don't cry ourselves to sleep over losses and we don't want to fight someone who says the team we follow sucks.  We understand that we are watching a team we follow, we are not part of it.

    People not like me think they are a part of the team.  They use all personal pronouns in describing everything.  "We traded Espo." "Our defense is great."  They call players by nicknames as if they are friends.  "Yeah, Bergy and Soupy were awesome for us last night, but Horts and Kruger burned our goalie."  They get upset when someone says something about the team as if it was about their mother.  They take offense when the media says this or that about the team or players on it. 

    I like people like me.  These people are adult about their approach to the games.  People not like me are little kids, ditzy girls and immature beyond belief regardless of age.  I don't go out of my way to hang out (in person or virtually) with people not like me.  If so, I'd be posted on a Bieber site next.

    As for why I don't ignore it, well, tell me how to.  Is there a way I can block certain words from appearing on my screen?  Are there special glasses I can wear that will remove certain words from my eyesight?

    All of them, Davey.  All of them.

    Except Fat Lucic.  That's not a nickname.  That's pure comedy.

    That's not ignoring it.  That's changing my opinion on it.

    How about nicknames for all players?  Will save at least a couple hundred characters of typing throughout the year. Only exception is for NAS as he will be ranting about the nicknames.  I enjoy reading the odd rant from time to time though.

    Fans refering to players by nicknames is a little cheesy. What bothers me is when people spell it Thorton. It's just an "N" on a 4th line player but it so many people do it, I notice it and it ruins my day.

    You're right, kel.  I also not a fan of broadcasters using them.  Like Leafs sideline guy Paul Hendricks referring to Curtis Joseph as Cujo in an interview years ago.

    This is the silliest thread I have read on these forums. Like who give's a flying F what name you call someone as long as we all know who we are talking about. To be honest if you are going to complain about a nick name and not show up on the forums good riddance. As much good knownledge you do bring to this forums it would be a shame for you to cry about a nick name.
