correction.. nicknames are usually earned through complete drunken embarrassment/individual greatness.. But yeah, more often than not, blood and tears are involved.
Non the less, this team had no business even pretending they were close to elite or one of the top teams in the league (especially given their record vs teams on that level).. and the fact that they had jackets with player's names printed is absolutely embarrassing.. embarrassing.
