First Name Only

Which Tiger-Cat players do you think will forever more be unmistakably identifiable to fans by their first name only?

Example: "Bernie" - doesn't cut it. Means Ruoff to some, Faloney or Custis to others.

I think I've got the top 3:

Garney
Grover
Rocky

Don't forget about

Danny
Troy
Mike (be it Morreale or Boooo O'Shea)
Corey will be on the list eventually

Dieter
Danny
Darren
Earl
Ben
Angelo
Rufus

Ex-Pat, in my opinion, the top three are:

Angelo
Garney
Ozzie

Rocky and Grover would round off the top 5.

I think Joe is another name that should be on the list

Of course, one could argue that Ozzie is not exactly a first name.

Joe ... as in Zuger, right?

Chuck, Ken, Grover, Garney, Bernie,Ozzie,

I could go on and on and on !!!

Aren't we luckey as football fans of the Hamilton Tiger Cats that we have a legacy so strong !!!

Oskee Wee Wee !!!!!!

These are all good choices that bring back memories, but as a longtime CFL (non-Ticat) fan, the name that immediately popped into my head was Angelo. It might be because the 1963 Grey Cup was the first one that I watched passionately.

Touche. You're absolutely correct.

Okay, I recant. My list would include...

Angelo
Garney
Rocky

Earl (Praise Be His Name)
Rocky
Grover
Danny
Angelo
Garney
Rufus

I think sigpig has it about right.

One I might add is Ben, as in Zambiasi. Another would be Tommy-Joe, if a hyphenated name is allowed. Also Hal, I suspect there would be no confusion about the subject of that one.

Auggie, cause I like his last name.

Could Zuger or Montford.

Much as I hate to say this I'd have to agree with sig.

Not their real names but no mistaken who we mean COOKIE & SUDSY.

Pigskin (Pete)

Coolest name in the CFL Holmes will always be Holmes. :thup:

Tony as in Champion, hey expat this is a really good thread,im having a great time trying to think of different names,this brings back some good memories...

oh heres one that hopefully oneday does great things here JESSIE

Frantz, Shino, Butchie...
