Who doesn't make nicknames for co-workers? The only one that should be offended, is the person given the nickname, if they don't like it. Some companies, like where I work, you have multiple people with the same first name, so you either call them by their last name, or give them a nickname.

tom calls them all idiots. But he isn't working right now, so yeah

Should it be J-Ry or J-Mul?

Thought about it but Jeff's mullet wasn't that great.

Memo to "Rusty" or "RB" or whatever nickname you give yourself,

You are nothing more then a carnival barker. Stop making up stupid nicknames for your coworkers. 

 

Really silly post from someone with alias "Jeff Wright's Mullet"

With the passing of Tom Modrak today it brought to light yet another side of Russ Brandon that is deplorable. You see, good old Rusty has a penchant for coming up with crafty nicknames for his coworkers.

 

He referred to Tom Modrak as "T-Mo." 

Yes that is correct, "T-Mo." In the past Russ has referred to Doug Marone as "Dougie" and Doug Whaley as "Whales." When the Sabres honored Brian Gionta recently for some reason they released a statement from Russ Brandon where he referred to Gionta as "Gio."

 

Memo to "Rusty" or "RB" or whatever nickname you give yourself,

You are nothing more then a carnival barker. Stop making up stupid nicknames for your coworkers. Your act has worn extremely thin in this town and most of the sensible Bills and now Sabres fans would love to send you packing. The Bills have sucked during your time with the team and you are never held accountable even though you are the Managing Partner and President. Go away and take your stupid nicknames with you.

 

 

Every one of those nicknames was in place for every one of those guys well BEFORE they ever knew Russ Brandon. Just a ridiculous post all the way around.

....for what it is worth and doubting this makes ZERO difference to me, but Brandon NEVER called RW "Ralph"......EVERYTHING was Mr. Wilson despite RW's insistence.....he could NOT do it out of respect...

Or the co workers without nicknames.

However, I don hate Russ Brandon. But, not for this.

Nicknames are good for team bonding!

I think the OP is upset no one ever gave him a nickname

 
Even he has a nick name! (unless Shorty was his real name.......)


Bahhahha! Shorty aka Short Round was great!!

What's stupider, making up nicknames for coworkers or sending memos to Presidents of professional sports teams on message boards not even owned by the team?

Be that as it may, there's no such thing as too many anti-Russ rants.

This has to be trolling, right? Nicknames and sports go together like peanut butter and jelly. I don't think there's one guy on the Sabres that gets called by his actual name. I'm surprised this guy didn't bring up Brian "Soupy" Campbell. How alarming. 

 

And I guess I never understood the hate for Russ Brandon. Yeah, he definitely should've never been a GM but he's a business guy and if you're the Bills and Sabres, business isn't too bad right now. The product on the field and on the ice needs work but Brandon is right there alongside the Pegulas helping them structure the deals that put together the Harbor Center, aided in getting renovations done at New Era Field. He must be doing something right considering he's outlasted numerous front office changes. To me, he's just a dude.

Agreed - with everything else going on - this just seems like a petty grip by the OP.
