While he decides his number, let's decide his nickname. In the Chargers interview, his nickname was stated as "Superman" or "Buff Daddy."

RM doesn't exactly fit like LT does. What do you guys think?

I agree. It took me forever to learn how to say Ladainian right. ALthough i was like 12 the first time i saw his name and had never heard it til i started to watch charger games.

I think some people may have a little trouble getting over the 1 T in Mathews. A lot of people still putting Matthews haha. What a tiny little mistake

04-30-2010, 11:41 AM
Yeah, the only reason we call LT "LT" is cause his name is so complicated.. I don't think he'll have a true nick name since we can simply call him Ryan. But if we really wanted to, i like RM or Bulldog
