In North Dallas Forty, by Peter Gent, a novel which describes the world of professional American football, ‘cocksucker’, ‘you dumb cocksucker’, and the like are regularly used between team-mates. There is no reason to think that the term is meant to be taken literally, accusing the listener of being a homosexual who practises fellatio; the word is simply a synonym for ‘bastard’. The equally obscene ‘motherfucker’ occurs in the novel with equal frequency and is used in a similar way.
