    Freeder here....

    I'm freaking loving this message board! Mostly true, and honest Texans Fans posting some really good stuff here. I get so pumped up around this time, because although the season just ended, we have the draft to look forward. Unfortunately I'm not in a position to listen to AM 610 all day on the radio. Thankfully I have found YOU to get me my fix...

    I've been reading a lot of posts talking about Adrian Peterson. Personally, I don't know why because he'll NEVER fall to us at #8, but that's besides the point. The problem I have is people referring to Adrian Peterson as AP....when his real nickname is AD....as in he runs ALL DAY.

    Until next time,

    Freeder = Texans stat boy

    Once again, his intials are AP, dude you've brought this up like a dozen times already. Most players get referred to be either last name only of intials...why? Because we are all to lazy to type Peterson every time we want to talk about him.

    Give it up already.

    Which is 3 to many. His intials are AP, and his nickname shortends to AD; calling him by either is perfectly acceptable to everybody but you appartently.

    i have a feeling this gentleman has joined several boards to inform them of AP's real nickname. a fascinating life.

    Patrick Willis' nickname is P-Willie.....but I refer to him as Willis or PW a lot of the times. Reggie Nelson's nickname is 'The Eraser' but I refer to him as Nelson or RN a lot of times.

    To think we're only 'dissin' our boy all day/AD,Peterson, AP, Adrian Peterson

    And still you don't get it. We didn't Make up the All Day thingy. Bob Stoops did. If you're still confused...the astros board could use the help.

    He's been called AD since high school.

    As a side note....I want to thank you guys for being so welcoming.

    Actually I thought his mom made it up when he was younger.

    LOL, the last thread that said we were dumb for calling him AP and that it is AD and only AD...turned into ...where/when did he get his nickname?

    Dude, you've ranted on this on 3 occasions, and three times people have tried to explain this to yo in a very polite manner; but when you go and make a thread about it, that implies those of use who refer to him as AP are stupid, you deserve what you get.

    Ole Miss Texan: great quote.

    Starting your MB career off by correcting everyone for using a player's name initials instead of nickname initials ain't going to draw a group hug, but welcome to the MB.
