    Lindsay Gilbee asking Adam Cooney if other countries celebrate Easter has to be up there but I think the best of all-time has to be one provided by Doug Hawkins.

    "Ricky Nixon was the guest speaker at the season-starter 500 Club luncheon and related the yarn about the day he sent the former Bulldog great to an address in Collins Street - 645 to be precise - for an appointment. When Hawkins got there, he rang Nixon and insisted that no such address existed. When Nixon said he knew it did because he was there a day earlier, Hawkins was adamant, explaining the building next to 644 was 646 so there couldn't be a 645. Not only that, added program master of ceremonies Eddie McGuire, his version of the story was that there was a laneway between 644 and 646, so Dougie assumed "someone had knocked off the building".

    Can anyone top that?

    Nothing specific comes to mind but Bill Brownless would have most entries in the top 100.

    Just about anything coming from the mouth of Warwick the Wiz Capper tops other players.

    BTW, Cloke for many years at Collingwood was a fixture on the FS, purely as a means of padding out his contract.

    Probably not a smart thing to say in front of 40,000 supporters.
