    over in the saturday arvo team thread, stats man and glinn mcgraw made these observations:


    after a quick google search, i uncovered the youtube profile of the same name, "rompingwins"



    looks like our hammer is a little fixated with what wikipedia has to say about him. he created the page back in 2010 and is a regular updater of it. take a look through his edit history. it's an enjoyable read.

    anyone with twitter care to hit him (and others) up about this?

    Do people really give a stuff if he adds info to his own Wiki page.

    At least you know what's on it is legit and not coming from some obsessed 15 year old teen girl.

    Yes I'm sure that everyone who does significant contributions to a wikipedia site about themselves never, ever makes up things or significantly distorts the facts to self promote.

    I can't believe people care let alone enough to make this main board worthy! :confused:

    It's not really any different to professional or publicist bios.

    The idea of some obsessed 15 year old girl editing Hamish Mclachlan's wiki is only slightly less funny than him doing it himself :eek:

    Nah… this has all the hallmarks of a well-orchestrated pisstake by one of his mates or something.

    A pisstake that's been going for two years on the remote chance someone on bigfooty might investigate? That's commitment

    "Discovered in a English pub" is gold. Absolute gold.

    Hamish's attempt to write a convenient history of his rise to the top of the broadcasting heap is the really funny bit.
