    At least get it right. It is Bobby "The Express" Cheng. The man will not be happy as he coined the nickname himself!

    Is that allowed?
    The Aussie Way is that your acquaintances GIVE you the nickname.

    For example, a few years back an AFL player was cut from a Melbourne Club, he was a bit of a show pony. Anyhow, he went bush for the next year. In the country town he trained with the locals and 'trained the house down' during the early weeks of the season.
    Thus earning very quickly the nickname, The Postman. Does not deliver on week-ends.

    I quite understand and you have every right to voice your objection Fg, however there is just one slight problem - Bobby has virtually no say in his nickname!

    The Ozchess Nickname Production House led most ably by Hector Winstorman has sole authority and makes the final decision. As he said:

    "We incorporated Bobby's previous nicknames The Train and The Express into this new re-branding which we decided was needed due to his recently attained GM title. The 'Express' theme we felt was covered by the fast banjo playing and the lyric "longer stride". We also liked the thought of the match-up: The Iron Fist vs The Iron Horse looked on by The Iron Lords (The Ozchess Boys). Under consideration is that all Australian GMs must have "Iron" in their nickname.
    We do have provisions whereby if the player in question wants to dispute his or her nickname then they must respond in person here on the Ozchess forum, and we'll certainly be happy to review the merits or otherwise of the case."
    - H.Winstorman (ONPH)



    Meanwhile would everyone please sing along (ala Xmas Caroling):





    Iron horse, iron horse
    Keep on burning on its course
    Iron horse, iron horse
    Burning on and on
    Keep on burnin' on

    It has been brought to my attention that Fg has been sending threatening emails to Hector Winstorman. In one of them he invited Hector out on a fishing trip and told him to pack light.
    I mean come on Fg, that's not very Christmassy mate.

    Funny you should ask, i've been doing some research on him. His full name is Hector Brian Winstorman. He is known as The Nickname Maker. Unsurprisingly his own nickname is The Windstorm Man.
