I told my gf that us Giants fans will often refer to the Philadelphia Eagles as "The Fleagles" and she went hysterical. Said a fleagle is Jewish for a turkey wing. Then I laughed!

Which reminded me that I've heard the Cowboys often called the Cowgirls, the Patriots called the Cheatriots,... then I ran out of names.

Is that ALL THERE IS?

Plus, what do they call US?

There are a fair amount of Packer fans here in Vikings country. Their nickname for the Vikes is the Viqueens.


Who can forget all the horrible years for New Orleans when their own fans wore paper bags on their heads and called their own team the New Orleans Ain'ts.

The Steelers are the "Stillers" but that's just what the folks in "Picksburgh" say.

I always found that annoying in comments after articles. It makes the poster sound like a kid.

I'm too old to get into those cutesy nicknames, although I see plenty during the season. Sometimes here, mostly on Facebook and odds are from twenty and thirty somethings. It seems silly to me. I've been a football fan for 50+ years, don't need nonsense.

I was on a 30 day cruise recently and nice talking to fans of other teams (we met for coffee)! We talked about the draft, which teams were going to be hot or not, in a respectful, fun manner, no rudeness, awesome. Sometimes there were as many as 20 of us, many teams represented and no arguments, except for the Charger and Raiders guys (to be expected)!
