A Serious Fantasy Football Problem Needs To Be Addressed.

Postby Atog » Mon Oct 17, 2005 6:17 pm

Seriously. I see them everywhere. Articles? NFL.com? Posts? All there. These unnecessary actions are destroying my mind, as well as those of other football fans. The Problem?

Cadillac Williams puns.
Seriously, we understand that he has a nickname, and that his job as a running back somewhat puts him in a situation of comparison with being a car. He has a real name, too. It's Carnell. Ok? We get the puns. Ha, ha, ha. Now stop.

(PS: This also includes puns for other football players, such as both Mosses and Tatum Bell.)

So, you're saying anyone who uses those puns should be run over by a big car -- a cadillac maybe. Or maybe they should have their bell rung? Oh oh oh, wait how about this: Anyone who uses those stupid puns has moss for brains?

eh, they've been rampant since the NFL draft and even before then they were prominent if you looked. It's far too late to stop them.

You want puns? Check out my thread where I punned the heck out of Peerless Price because his name is one of my top ten favorite football player names. I admit I went overboard... but I was bored and his name is great.

i like it when they call him escalade and say it like esca-la-de with an accent on the E at the end. other than that, i hope it's just for this year since he's a rookie and they stop it next year

I like the puns...when you have a guy named Caddy playing in the NFL, how can you not play off that name?

My new favorite is the way everyone is saying the last name Jones.....Matt Jooooones. I mean, there are so many Jones', how can you not use it?
Doesn't it suck to get beat at Fantasy Football...by a girl?

I must admit...I shudder at some of them...I am growing tired of the:

Kickin' caddy's tires...
Spin around the block...
Look under his hood...
Tuning up....etc...

The puking list goes on...
