That's pretty funny. Do his colleagues call him Rompingwins to his face on the various shows he's on? Is it a completely open secret, or more of a BigFooty thing?

The Sunday footy show where Riewoldt kept alluding to the fact that Hamish ran over Cotchin’s dog at his property after an interview and did not even stop to see if all was ok , it was a riot. Hamish trying to deflect and change subject , Riewoldt kept asking further questions, Cotchin sitting there stony faced very displeased. This was on his Wiki page but is now removed.

Geez, that's really bad form. I'm surprised Cotchin even agreed to be on a show with him again if that's true.

Damn funny, and more common amongst the "celebrity" class than they would have us believe too, I'd wager.

Like the C listers "leaking" their own movements to the paps.

Check out Nick Etchell's wiki.

In the past decade he has covered events ranging from the inquest into Princess Diana's death to the violent breakdown of the Solomon Islands and the red carpet of Hollywood's Golden Globe Awards. He has interviewed people from all walks of life including Richard Branson, Naomi Watts, Mohammed Al Fayed, Russell Crowe, John Travolta, Shane Warne, Toni Collette and many more
.

Either he wrote that or wrote it for a Ten media flunky.

As the title suggests, I don't know anything about this. Somehow it all passed me by and I can't actually find a thread or source that explains it. I see that name quoted a lot, so it's seems to have been a big scandal of some sort. Any details or links to an explanation appreciated.
Once upon a time there was a born-to-rule polo playing ponce who never had to work a hard day in his life (just like Andrew Bolts brother, the secretary of the department of education). This ponce decided to make himself look good by updating his own wikipedia page. He could also be the reason he even has a wikipedia page. Such descriptions of himself were sad and pathetic, and clearly filling a void of unloving parents or just a sh*t family overall. Bigfooty caught the ponce red handed and shamed him for it.

Nothing to do with Hame but I only recently read the back story to the incessant references to Andrew Walker's hat.

I can't say my life is more complete now but I do like getting the jokes.

It's just hilarious when you stumble across an ex- 10 game AFL player's wikipedia and it's got more detail than someone who played 300+, like you're not going to immediately assume that they're maintaining it, or someone very close to them is.

My memory may be faulty, but my main recollection of this time was that Hamish had a Wikipedia page and Gillon didn't. Probably sums it up.
