I wouldn't say insulting, but whenever someone mentions Tomlinson as LT within the context of his rushing, I do respond with "LT never ran the ball" or something along those lines.
I just refer to Tomlinson as BLT.
It always seemed un-original to me..
(1)Aaron Donald, DT Pittsburgh - (2)Joel Bitonio, OL Nevada - (3)CJ Fiedorowicz, TE Iowa
(4)Brandon Coleman, WR Rutgers - (5)Bryan Stork, C Florida State - (5)Khairi Fortt, LB California
(6)Tyler Gaffney, RB Stanford
LT is a lot easier to say than Ladainian Tomlinson, so no.
No. I'd laugh (hard) if someone genuinely did feel insulted.
Yes. Deeply, deeply insulted. The nerve of LaDainian Tomlinson's parents to give him a name with those initials... My God, I'm getting incensed just thinking about!
I remember an interview on a pre-game show with LT and he was asked if it bothered him. He said no, and that he's met L.Tomlinson and likes him.
