Jack Johnson

Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by The Finnish MacInnis*, Jul 6, 2007.

  1. What is the deal behind "Jack Mother****ing Johnson" and "Kill Jack, Kill!"? I guess I mean were there any specific indidents behind the creation of this nickname and phrase? Thanks.

    Kill, Jack, Kill is from his days in Michigan. Ask Michigan fans if it relates to any specific incident, but it's probably just because Jack drilled people with a lot of force.

    JMFJ is because Kings fans were so excited when Jack was acquired that a lot of said OMG, we just got Jack Mother ******* Johnson, and the name just seemed to stick.

    Not really any specific incident, but the legend of JMFJ was probably born in the game against Boston College his freshman year. It was a high-profile game against a heavyweight nonconference opponent and he had a game to remember, to say the least. First, he murdered a few BC players:

    Then, he decapitated goaltender Cory Schnieder with a slapshot:

    Fun game to be at in person. By far the most phycially gifted player I've ever seen at Michigan, and I saw future NHLers there such as Brendan Morrison, John Madden, Turco, Comrie, Cammalleri, etc.

    The funny thing is that a lot of the tight-a** posters here get their little panties in a bunch when we say "JMFJ" or "Jack mother ******* Johnson" like we're hurting their feelings by being excited about having a top prospect.

    I prefer Jack "dirtbag" Johnson myself, if anyone remembers his comments from draft day.

    No 'link' exists, as it was published in print only, in an article written by Gare Joyce which ran in the July 17th (06) issue of ESPN the Magazine.

    It amounted to a complete rip job on Kessel.

    That video just makes me embarrassed to be a King's fan. I am really pumped about Johnson, but stuff like that is just stupid and juvenile.

    Lighten up, Francis...it's just a video and just a game.

    Sorry if this is just beneath you.

    Really? 40 years of nothingness and THIS is the one thing that embarrasses you about being a Kings fan?

    Lighten up. We end up with the best d-man out of one of the deepest drafts in NHL history. Out of the same draft we found our franchise forward. It's actually OK to be excited about these guys.

    In fact, if more people showed creativity and excitement when it comes to players and this great game, maybe the sport will actually freakin' grow in the States.
     
  14. Is Canada turning into the Soviet Union now? Can you guys not smile.

    I'd be extatic to have JJ on my team. He's the most passionate player I've seen play. I'll give you Shattenkirk for him ;)

    agreed...but then again it is mostly 15 year-olds who continue to use that silly reference.

    I agree. Adding "MF" to the name of any player in the league could suffice for a nickname if you're not creative enough to think of one. Nicknames that are as forced as this one seem a bit contrived.

    We don't need to smile about JJ, we got Marc the human eraser Staal :yo:

    Seriously though you got admit that video is kind of stupid. They could have made a much better compiliation with all his hits and goals. Anyways to each their own.

    I'm not bitter, I just think it's a dumb nickname. If it was Jarome MF Iginla it would still be a dumb nickname. I think players should give the players nicknames and if the fans want to pick them up then so be it. I think JJ is much more appropriate because it's likely what teammates call him. Just my two cents.

    Actually Caniac brings a different insight to JJ that some Kings fans dont want to acknowledge. Some see him as a player who is going to step in and dominate from day one where Caniac points out the flaws in JJ's game that will prevent him from doing it right away. Theres little things that JJ needs to change and Caniac just points those out.

    Actually he got off the bitter bus along time ago,

    Aren't you the Canes fan that kept coming on the kings board saying Jack was horrible and would never amount to an NHL player?
