Give Tim Murray a nickname

There have been some grumbles about the GMTM moniker in several threads lately, so here's your chance to give Tim Murray a better nickname in a lighthearted thread.

"Murray" is 2 characters longer and doesn't require the shift key. I'll stick with the basics personally.

Not that I really care if people say GMTM... not trying to pile on here, it's just pointless and will cause more confusion among people than anything.

Same here.

Can't we just say Murray.... sort of like we used to say Regier?

Or Tim Murray?

Or Tim?

Why do we have to resort to the rather juvenile GMTM??? Because it Rhymes? Really????

I'm partial to GMTM myself.

First of all, it's got excellent internal rhyme and rhythm to it.

Second, "Murray" always makes me think of one of these two things:

Get over it. It's here to stay. I use it because there are three GM's with that last name, and it can get confusing over on the trade board. I'm one for consistency, as well.

Everyone take a peak, as this thread will determine the destiny of not only the Sabres rebuild but probably the course of the rest of our lives.

"GMTM" is the message board equivalent of saying "Roysie" instead of "Roy". It has none of the potential benefits of a nickname (clever, entertaining, endearing, time-saving) and all of the negatives (convoluted, confusing to those not in the know, X-Tremely Lame).

This for me as well.

Unless of course, something else catches my eye.

Fine, fine, GMTM is weak.

But Lame-O is definitely staying.

Yes, I'm sure "Murray" would cause a lot of confusion on here...

When people say "Miller" I sometimes just assume they're talking about Drew.

Sometimes our actions have unintended consequences. Just hope jBuds legacy is not tarnished as the OP of the most silly thread ever.
