Darnell Dockett Is Nicknamed Fart Box

Darnell Dockett Has Quite Possibly The Funniest Nickname Ever

Since there's a two week break before the Super Bowl, players on both teams tend to get interviewed to death. Oftentimes, this results in someone finally cracking and saying something stupid, like "Man, the other team sucks." But other times, it gives some hilariously awesome stuff.

Like take this tiny tidbit from an East Valley Tribune article. In it we find out that Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett goes by the nickname........Fart Box.

"He takes these protein shakes where he's trying to keep himself healthy, but when it comes out we all suffer," [nose tackle Bryan] Robinson said. "It's nasty."

I don't really want to know that, but at the same time, it hilarious beyond belief. Although, I wonder what players telling people that does for team chemistry. I'd expect Dockett to rip one in revenge. Also, watch out on Sunday, Steelers.

Obviously, this nickname raises the great debate again of who has the greatest nickname ever in pro sports? Let's go some of the all time best.

Dominique "The Human Highlight Film" Wilkins
Pete "Pistol Pete" Maravich
David "Skywalker" Thompson
Dave "Cementhead" Semenko - Gretzky's personal on ice bodyguard
Marvin "The Human Eraser" Webster
Rod "He Hate Me" Smart
Al "The Mad Hungarian" Hrabosky
Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd
Craig "Walrus" Stadler
Billy "White Shoes" Johnson
Curtis "Cujo" Joseph
Jack "The Assassin" Tatum
Kevin “The Black Hole” McHale
Jared “The Pillsbury Throwboy” Lorenzen
Lance “Fat Elvis” / “The Big Puma” Berkman
Pat “The Little Ball of Hate” Verbeek

Anyway, there are plenty more I could go through, but Fart Box should at least take a spot on the all-time greatest sports nicknames list. Otherwise, I don't know what to believe in anymore.

Am I causing controversy sorry guys, just find it wierd that a raider fan wants to beat on the Cardinals, and mind you a Raider team that has great tradition only to see everything it accomplished over the years totally abolished in my opinion the way Al Davis has run this team over the last 5 years even the former players are embarrassed.

Dude Thats true about the sellout but listen I would take Bill Bidwell at his cheapest, to what the retarded Al Davis has done to one of the greatest Franchises in footbal history, so don't even go there because the Raiders are a joke, The lions have more promise than your team.

I think you've been around the site long enough to ascertain my feelings for the Steelers.

I desperately hope the Cardinals win. That being said, their fan base is eerily similar to that of the Tampa Bay Rays... many of them thought every game day was Halloween, and showed up dressed as an empty seat.

..or they changed in the bathroom from Red Sox gear to Rays gear,,,,,,

Again, nice. 

They even had trouble selling out their playoff game against Atlanta, which was their 1st one in over 10 years.  I guess if Bill Bidwell was your team's owner, you could forget about your team too...

Did you know the raiders are the 1st team in NFL history to lose at least 11 games for what is it 5 straight years or something like that, I could look it up if I have to but please I respect your a proud Raider fan but you should be the last person being critical of another organization right now.

And here I was thinking that Anthony "Booger" McFarland was strange. That has got to be the strangest sports nickname EVER.  Most sports nicknames come from whats done on the field, not in the bathroom stall
