This was an exchange between me and Najeh's Aunt on a message board for the Steelers.
SteelersWoman: I'd like to see Dookie get it more. He's barely been given a chance, but the majority (of the few plays he's gotten) have been really good.
Willie's always gonna do good when they can open a crease for him.

to steelers woman, his name is not dookie, his name is najeh trenadius monte davenport. get it right!
Everyone we like on the Steelers team have been given a nickname. Joey Porter is Peezy, Willie is Fast Willie, Ben is Big Ben, and so on.
On all our Steelers forums, since people like your nephew so well, they gave him a nickname to make him one of our guys. It was certainly not meant as a put down, but rather, an honor showing that he's been received into our Steelers team as one of our own.
I would have thought that you'd be proud that he's been received so well so quickly that he was given this honor--I apologize for being wrong, and will be sure to copy and paste your comment into the Steelers forums I
I told her I'd do this, so I did.
