      Let’s come up with a new nickname for Doug MartinPosted by Mike Florio      ProFootballTalk.comOctober 17, 2015, 9:03 PM EDTdoug_zps2zqznqbg.jpegDoug Martin, Johnathan Cyprien, Telvin SmithAPIn 2012, Buccaneers running back Doug Martin took the league by storm as a rookie — and along the way he acquired one of the more popular NFL nicknames in recent years: The Muscle Hamster.But there was one problem with that name. Martin hates it.“You just don’t think of, you know, that’s something to be, you know, intimidating or anything,” Martin told PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio earlier this week, on the heels of a three-touchdown performance against the Jaguars.“It’s a hamster, c’mon now,” Martin said.So how about coming up with a new nickname?“I can’t come up with my own nickname all I can say is that I despise that nickname,” Martin said. “You know, some people like it. Some people hate it. I hate it but it hasn’t gone away. I’m still waiting for that new nickname, for a new nickname to emerge.”So then I had an idea. I’ll ask you, PFT Planet, for some ideas.“We’ve already tried that,” Martin said of the possibility of having a fan-generated nickname. “It’s just lingering now.”Prove him wrong, PFT Planet. Prove him wrong. 44 Responses to “Let’s come up with a new nickname for Doug Martin”MichaelEdits says:Oct 17, 2015 9:11 PMAuthor Jenny Lawson said we need to start writing the P in hampster and someone said there is no P in hamster and she said, “Are you kidding?

      “Shed.”  ..HA!Seriously though. The only way this is a bad nickname is if someone has their mind in the gutter. And no one wants to view their rb as a stout, but short, member running down the field. So, in that aspect, i suppose i could understand.I guess it could also be awkward in social settings with females. "Hi there ladies. I'm doug martin, but all my friends call me the muscle hamster," ...doesnt seem to be odd at all.Trouble is, he should own up to it. He does that, and no one gives a sh1t anymore.
