See, White was asked what he thought about DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart being nicknamed "Smash and Dash" for their on-field running prowess. And, since White claims he already has proprietary rights on that name, he was none too pleased.
"If they want a nickname, I can nickname them: 'Identity and Theft,'" said White, who's successfully paired with the speedy rookie Chris Johnson this season. "...I was upset because I made that phrase up myself. I mean I made it up. I don't know about NFL Network and all those other guys. I heard somebody say, 'Batman and Robin,' that's like cute, that's for them. If they want that name they can have it. The 'Smash and Dash' is something I made up."He also went on to say that he had been "swacced", which apparently means "swagger-jacked", and is definitely my new favorite term.
"We've got a copyright and everything for it, I'll make sure I show the documents," White said. "It's well trademarked and it's copy written. I don't know if we're going to take legal action or not."
Now, while I would personally prefer the Stewart - Williams combo (I think they're collectively much more talented than White and Johnson, although I do love the speedy ECU grab), the nickname "Smash and Dash" is vastly more applicable to the Tennessee tandem, in terms of running style. So, I'm willing to concede it to him. Besides, at least he didn't call them weak a ... er, nevermind.
