STH-Season ticket holder

FTW -- Have you ever met any Bikers? FTW has a different meaning to the 1%. ( F**k the World) This really tipifies the Clipper Nation. BTW one day I'll tell you about the time I was drunk for two days and ended up in a Biker Bar 120 miles away from home. LUCKILY I knew one of them so I'm still alive although at the time my shoe was full of my own urine.

PGLBJ-- Please God LBJ

FQM-- Fourth quartrter meltdown

DP- Draft Pick

WCP-- Where is Cherokee Parks?

Nice list, FIFTY. Though I think +1 means to agree with a post, whether or not a rep point is awarded. -1 would mean to disagree.

EJ - Eric Jr, Eric Gordon's nickname

DJ - DeAndre Jordan

BD - Baron Davis

BG - Blake Griffin

Cakeman - A nickname for Chris Kaman; can be either affectionate or derisive, depending on the context

Bingo - Same as +1; phrase borrowed from Ralph Lawler

Rhino - nickname for Craig Smith

(I also suggested PM, but it's already there)

FML - no explanation necessary. it makes its rounds roughly around or before the allstar break, when the season begins its downfall. also can be used in-game, during our fourth quarter meltdowns. also works during the preseason, when prized rookies injure themselves.

Luv it, #50. Hey, just added a new one! Wink

Since I don't make any decisions when it comes to the board, maybe david can sticky this up.

I added a few of your suggestions guys. FML, STH, DP and -1 for disagreeing

I wanted to stay away from adding player names though, just in case of trades/expiring contracts... we don't want to keep coming back just to update nicknames.
