Was at the surf beach at Tathra and saw a skinny, pasty white red head, it may have been Clayton Oliver, but red heads are god greatest mistake so I didn’t give him a Second look

I saw Craig McCrae at the tennis. He was wearing dress shoes with shorts and no socks. I might tell the Herald Sun.
Massive if true.

I'd prefer if you referred to them as "members of our in-ginger-nous community"

Shane Biggs on a bucks night at the Duke of Wellington near Fed Square a few months ago. Just randomly sat down at our table started talking rubbish about how he played AFL as he was well on his way drunk wise. Ended up chatting for 10 minutes when he found out we knew who he was and he was wrapped. Seems a pretty genuine bloke albeit a bit cocky.

Was invited to a work fishing trip in port phillip bay in the 90s by my work boss who was a mad Carlton supporter and sponsored Greg Williams. (Greg was playing at the time and Carlton supporters were pretty well known to be insufferable in this era).

Greg came on board with us and the boat was too small to avoid awkward glances. And that was as far as it got, awkward glances around the boat and no conversation. Fish weren't biting either, so friggin stuck on a boat for hours bored out of my skull...

There was certainly a bit of that floggishness when we were chatting. We played along with what he was saying pumping up his tyres a bit but I rekon he's no different to quite a few ex footy players. Legends in their own minds living off past glories sort of thing. Wasn't any sort of deep conversation just general s**t talk about footy.

I saw Jack Viney walking into Freemasons hospital at the end of last season.

He was holding his baby. His partner had the nappy bag.
