Nicknames of players or events that should never be used by

Giant fans?

As an example , there was no “miracle in the meadowlands” for giants fans . That event should only be referred to as “the fumble”.

Is “Zeke” another one? Because I feel like it’s a name of endearment and I hate the fucking guy.
Certainly not a term of endearment

It's just way easier to type Zeke as opposed to Ezekiel.

Yup. I stubbornly insisted on either LdT or spelling out Tomlinson.

And even if Eli Apple had been good and still with the Giants, he still would always have just been "Apple" to me. Both "Eli" and "EA" were already too far ahead of him to ever catch up.

Yeah me too. I called the runner LdT... I did it yesterday in fact.

E-Hive or any other derogatory names for NYG fans who love Manning (as they should).

I don't get it.

but RGIII was one I hated. Osi used to call him "Bob" as an alternative.
Good one

Why would that have any significance specifically to Giants fans though?

Guy averages like less than 16 PPG vs us championship games. Not sure what's so terrific about that.

No one should use any of the nicknames coined by that hack. That's for all functioning adults, not just Giants fans.

"We're only gonna score 17 points? Ok. Is Plax playing defense?"

In terms of baseball nobody should ever refer to the seats under the overhang in right field at Citi "Utleys Corner". And I think this originated with Gary Cohen actually.

The OP literally and specifically says "by Giants fans" so I'm not sure why you feel the need to pollute yet another thread.

You're not only a Jets fan, you're a bigot. Just leave.

Huh? Tom Terrific is the coach that won us 2 Superbowls. Who else could it be?

I don't get the hate for this one. It seems like a natural nickname for someone named Robert Griffin III.
LT for LDT and Matty Ice  
SteelGiant : 9/6/2019 9:54 pm : link
LT-Can't use an already used nickname for all time great. That is a basic fundamental rule when picking nicknames.

Matty Ice - wasn't a big fan in the beginning but the nickname "ICE" should assume that one had ice through his veins. Matthew Ryan has the most ironic nickname or at the very least he should marry Alanis Morisette.

Yup. And this one isn't really just for Giants fans, but I never liked any version of "[insert team like Steelers/Red Sox/etc] Nation."
