The first in can come up with:

Patrick Goots: Boom Boom Patje.

Darko Pivaljevic: King Darko

Luc Nilis: Lucky Luc

Rob Rensenbrink: De Slangenmens

Mike Verstraeten: Iron Mike :rollani:

BTW: Isn't Maertens called Bicky Burger?

"I never knew my birth parents. There was a car accident. my birth mother was incinerated, and I only survived because her smoking carcass had formed a protective cocoon of slaughtered human effluence. A Belgian man and his fifteen year-old love slave were looting the accident scene, came across a blood soaked baby, moi, and they raised me to be evil."

Great nicknames Kampfschwein.

I actually think it's Bicky Birger (that's the clue to the joke I believe)

Would Cisse Jeannet be a nickname?

Help me, Jeebus!!!

I always was a big fan of him when he was still at Antwerp, but since he moved to Beerschot I hate him with passion. So he's got my vote.

Another one that came to mine:

Ahmed Hossam: Mido
Apparantly that name was give to him by the AA Gent fans.

Or

Jan Koller: Lange Jan, Honzo or Dino (last one was given by ze Germans)

A lot of names I didn't hear of yet. I think Buffel's name is Buffy or Buffy the goal slayer.

In certain circles in Brugge also known as "dikke Danny"

Justice is judgement that is both fair and forgiving. Justice is not done until everyone is satisfied, even those who offend us. Justice is not only the way we punish those who do wrong but is also the way we try to save them.

It's more from drinking probably than something else, he is related to one of my best friends and we met him once at 5 o'clock in the morning in the "Overpoort" and we talked to him and he said the words "drinking" , "beer" and "much" in almost every sentence, his most memorable quote being:

"Aje veele kunt drinken, ist goed"

"If you can drink a lot, everything is fine"

At first I thought you were refering to the part where he was telling about the time he was out with a injury for a few months and when he retook training he weighed 130 kilos.

"I never knew my birth parents. There was a car accident. my birth mother was incinerated, and I only survived because her smoking carcass had formed a protective cocoon of slaughtered human effluence. A Belgian man and his fifteen year-old love slave were looting the accident scene, came across a blood soaked baby, moi, and they raised me to be evil."
