I'm fine with Oil fans calling Johnny whatever they like, particularly when he is outscoring their Savior at half the price.
Don't need to tell me. I don't know if any of my group of long-life friends call each other by their given names as everyone has a nickname or two or three. It almost feels strange to address them properly. I'm not condemning anyone that wants to call him a name. For whatever reason I have never really gone the nickname route in sports for opposing players.

My favourite is McDiver, and I was fairly surprised not to see it posted yet as it was a fairly common name on here when he got fined

Agree with Estrada.

Some of these nicknames are pretty witty though. The absolute worst term people use are 'Coilers' or 'Can-sucks / Ca-sucks'. Those are completely embarrassing.

Collar McBroken will always be the best, but it's a bit dated now..McLotteryballs makes me laugh too, interesting I think Ryan Pinder came up with both of those ones..or at least was the first person I heard say those..maybe we should ask him, he's good at it.

ok, I agree but I like using Can'tucks. Even my Canuck fan friends think it is funny. And the I get the ok "Lamer" or "Lames Fan". Nothing wrong with cute nick names for each other.

I said coilers the other day and my son wasn't sure what it meant in terms of hockey, so I explained and he thought it was really funny because Edmonton is no good.

I kinda like McDangles for the simple fact that it starts with McD and isnt just Mc thrown in front of random words.

I find it hilarious my 65 year old mother calls him McJesus so I'll go with that.

I was thinking of names for the city of Edmonton. How about Loserville, Mullet Town, Greaserville, Sweatpantopolis, Urine City One, We Have a Mall, or Stank upon North Saskatchewan?

I like McCrossover and Goner McTraded. Those are pretty good ones.

Trouble with McJesus is that's what his actual fans in Edmonton call him.
