i hate it. sorry. you seem like a nice person.
If you're looking for another name to refer to him by
how about Shoelace?
"Diez y seis" es correcto, yo creo.
Its how he spelled it. There needs to be an accent over the second e, but other than that its right.
If we're going Ochocinco style (i.e. "Eight seven rather than eighty-seven"), it would technically but "Diez Seis"
Any yet... still no.
... unoseis. Still no go, though.
Que bueno. Sin embargo... no.
Baxter... You know I don't speak spanish!
Would actually be eight five
This is what I get for trying to post during Jurisprudence class.
No. "Shoelace" is enough.
I like your spirit. How about Denard Robinson, or "Shoelace". I know its not trendy to go classic but we like our tradition around here.
Yes, because Ochocinco is the role model we want Denard following.
How about, "he who runs like grandpa"
Thank you for the announcement. Everyone, Gordie Bell has won the thread.
but I'm gonna go ahead and stick with shoelace
You see this knife? I'm gonna teach you to speak English with this knife
Ay, dios mios - es horible.
Shoelace, and Nard Dogg are cool. Denard Dieciseis is atrocious.
Otro message board thread de mierda. Los Mods tienen que hacer una norma que exige 500 puntos para iniciar un message board thread nuevo.
Queiro que el accounto de ese hombre se termina y el va a vivir con su madre en el mas horible pedazo de Ohio. Comeran pollo y arroz por trienta anos y nunca regresaran a Michigan. :)
I do like shoelace or even dilithium but mostly shoelace.
The problem is, other than no, it's stupid, is you can't say the name fast enough. Four syllables, plus slow northerners trying to translate what it means takes too much time. Denard could score 2 touchdowns by the time you finish.
This just came to me. Why don't we just called him The Doctor (you know DR) as in The Doctor is in the House.
1. Your idea is completely unoriginal.
2. And nobody wants Denard Robinson even remotely associated with Chad Johnson's personal branding strategy.
3. Denard Robinson's first name, Denard, is a rare enough name anyway, and should satisfy your longing for something unique and memorable like "Renaldo" and Renaldino", etc.
3. It's just not necessary.
4. Save that ego-centric BS for the "run, run, pass, punt " and "sissy-sliding quarterbacks!"-product of the NFL, not for college football. Not for Michigan Wolverines football.
Hate to be brusque, but you did ask for opinion.
Why spanish? Why not german or dutch or something? I don't understand the reasoning here.
Dutch, dutch, dutch!
needs more F words
I'll call him whatever he likes to go by, and it's pretty obvious that he goes by shoelace.
Cool Nickname + Cool Story Behind Nickname + Beast-like skillz = Legend
So with that said...
Shoelace + "I never tied my shoes" + Dillithium Biaaaatch = Legend
Damn, we didn't even need Mathlete for that one
i think he is just a bad speller, and actually meant: denard diocese - a new religion.
As Charels Barkley would say "thats turrible" Not a fan of it at all, I happen to like "shoelaces". And referencing Ochocinco just makes it even worse, I can't stand that arrogant SOB!
Wow... I'm gonna stick with Mr. Robinson. I think that is how he will be addressed by the folks that he will be visiting in the schools and hospitals during the off season.
Best idea ever. The only possible thing i can think of to make it even more best would be to change it to chinese - and add some exclamation points so everyone knows we're not just kinda excited about it.
I'm glad you explained that as Chinese with exclamation points. I thought you were working on a "The Football Player Formerly Known as Denard Robinson" concept.
oops. yeah i guess the number 16 in chinese does look like a grave marker cross next to a stick figure that looks like they're running. +1 for your imagination.
aaaaaaaaaaand i re-read your comment and realized that's not at all what you were thinking. You were going with a Prince angle and I thought you meant "formerly" as in he was dead because of the grave marker next to running figure idea......... I take back my imagination comment but you can keep the +1.
but that's really terrible
It don't need fixing.
I didn't ever take classes or anything for Spanish as a foreign language, I don't belong in this thread.
If it aint broke, don't fix it. Mr. Robinson, Shoelace, Nard Dogg, or simply Denard are all acceptable and will suffice.
Or Samuel L. Jackson will get very upset.
Finally, a dumber nickname choice than Nard Dogg. And NSFMF, Nard Dogg IS fucking idiotic. Allow me to 'splain.
First of all, it's already been used. By an ironic white sitcom. Second, the joke in the Office is that Andy Bernard gave himself a nickname that makes it sound like HE'S CRAZY FOR MEN'S BALLS.
NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT.
Also, Denard Dieciseis is dumber than Nard Dogg, which is pretty fucking dumb.
I tried the German translation, Denard sechzehn, [pronounced sekzheen], it doesn't work.
I think Shoelaces is best, Denard Robinson isn't bad either.
Lost in all this is this unbreakable law of nicknames, which is that any time you just invent a new nickname, automatically it is stupid. Good nicknames (like Shoelace) just happen and then catch on, they don't need a publicity campaign.
