I definitely can understand why Doug Martin doesn’t want the Muscle Hamster nickname because it is a god awful moniker.
It was given to him by some of his old Boise St teammates and has stuck, but now that he is in the pros he would like something a less Disney Animationish.
“It has to be the worst nickname ever,” Martin said. “I can’t shake it. It started in college, started back in Boise, with our linemen. I have a lot of bigger friends, and they’d call me the Muscle Hamster because of how much I could lift in the weight room.”
Since he doesn’t want to be called the Muscle Hamster I will now refer to him as Douglas Martin.
After a slow start Martin has picked up steam and has been the driving force behind the Bucs push for a wildcard spot.
