    RWO's irreverent nicknames for the other clubs

    RWO has some fairly consistent irreverent nicknames for the other clubs. I would like to collate them for future reference and general amusement.

    Can the RWO regulars post the nicknames they use for other clubs?

    To start, here are some that I use sometimes or that I have seen others use:

    Adelaide - Cows
    Collingwood - Filth
    Essendon - Scum (as in Essen-scum)
    GWS Giants - Fums (from Jack and the Beanstalk: Fee fie foe fum)
    Hawthorn - Poos and wees, Dawks
    North Melbourne - Norf
    Richmond - Ferals
    West Coast - Wet Toast

    Bulldogs - Fairypuppies
    GWS - plastics.

    Both self explanatory

    When I told a Demon supporting friend that Swans fans call Hawthorn the Poos and Wees, she told me that Melbourne fans refer to the Hawks as the Dirty Nappies.

    Essendon - The Injectors
    St.Kilda - The Aints
    West Coast - West Coke

    Hawthorn's unfortunate colours are the result when a club is founded in 1902 and all the good colour combinations have already been taken.

    An old nickname for Hawthorn is the Mustard Pots.

    Hawthorn were also known as the Mayblooms. Yikes!

    The only one's I ever actually use are:
    Hawthorn: Poo and wee's, or Dawks
    St Kilda: 'aints.
    Essendon: Druggo's
    North: Norf (my personal favourite, because it implies a half-wits misguided mentality coliding with minor lignuistic deformaty, which is what the club is all about)

    The explanation is too funny for it to not be on the list.

    Yeah, I have seen #lolnorf on a few different platforms.

    The funny thing about the ‘Norf’ part for me is that the only North Melbourne supporters that I know are actually intellectual types and so the slur seems an even bigger slight for them.
