Chaser is the Genuis, what is the Species? (Fan NIcknames)

    Chaser is the Genuis, what is the Species? (Fan NIcknames)

    We are all Chasers and on any given day enamoured by one of the guys specifically.  So what are the fans of each individual guy called?  

    I have seen "Lugnuts"  for Mike's Fans.  (I'm wonder about pronounciation? Does the lug sounds like hug or lug like "loogie"?)

    Do fans decide or do the guys get to (or have done) the honor of naming their fans?

Just found out that "Gang Green" is the name of Ryan's Fantasy Football league team so that name is out -

What if we fans were "Ryan's Muppets" and wore green t-shirts with the too adorable pic of Ryan & Elmo (if Ryan would grant permission & Henson Productions wouldn't mind us unofficially using the term Muppets) - I'm sure Elmo would give the thumbs up if he had thumbs

Oh and the reverse side of the shirt could (of course) say "It's not easy being Green"

I was thinking that disciplines of Ryan should be his Ahllowers....

Even though we have Lugnuts, there could be Waltnuts too.....

Was trying to think of creative names for fans of Mr Mechling but it simply keeps lending itself to the obvious -

"Charlie's Angels"

Especially funny because many of the big Charlie fans are anything BUT angels (ahem)

The NY sports press dubbed the NY jets "Gang Green" during some of their off years so it is definitely a play on words but we'd wear the title lovingly for our Ryan (he has a great sense of humor) - AD if you're a nurse then you'll definitely cringe at the illness name I thought of that Ryan lovers get - RYAN-ITIS (lol)

Fab, those are AWESOME, though I have to admit the nurse in me shuddered a bit at the resembling sounds of 'Gang Green' and 'gangrene'. And I MAY have squee'd for a second at the idea of a 'Dawg Pound'.

I'll add my other fan-nickname suggestions here -

"Gang Green" - Ryan's fans (ripped off from NY Jets)
"Walt's Weezers" - Walt's fans due to the song he's now lovingly associated with (T-Shirts would have pic of Walt in Buddy Holly glasses)
"Rome's SOUL-ja's" or "Rome-antics" or "Romaniacs" -Romey's fans

I know they're silly but so are our guys - still brainstorming

I tweeted a few ideas for some of the other guys (Ryan / Walt / Romey) but in keeping with some sports themes thought Randy's fans could also belong to the "Dawg Pound"

I'm a Lugnut myself and am proud of it! ^-^

Total BLP'er here, and I can just see the t-shirts now, proudly proclaiming #TeamRandawg!

Ohh, I'm apart of the Bass Love Posse. I saw something on twitter earlier about Randy's being #teamRandawg. Any confirmation on that out there? If not, I think that would be fun for Randy's fans. :)

Nah, ladies, sorry. Lugnuts are the big screw thinggys that hold your tires on your car. Or something like that. And 'LUG" rhymes with "HUG".

No, I don't change tires. But I'm a lugnut. :D

I certainly count myself a member of the Bass Love Posse! ;)

Fans of Charlie and Randy are sometimes referred to as the "Bass Love Posse."

Story behind Lugnuts: My best friend started calling me Lugnut my freshman year of high school, and it's been my nickname ever since. Once I became a Chaser, I thought it was sort of funny that I was a huge Mike fan, and my nickname was Lugnut. So I thought it just sort of fit.

That's the only one I've really thought of, but I'd like to create fan names for the other guys. I think it'd be awesome.

Oh, and I've been saying it like "loogs."
