I was at JBHIFI in Maribyrnong about 15 years ago, I turned around after being served, looked up at at the customer behind me, who happened to be Chris Tarrant, he looked down at me and gave me a look like “Yeah, that’s right, I am Chris Tarrant from Collingwood”. I walked right passed him.

I will never forget the memory of snubbing a Collingwood footballer.

About 30 minutes ago I was at my local Woolworths in North Melbourne. I was buying some ham, went through the self serve checkout. As I was scanning my item, I peered across to my right and saw Ben Brown from North Melbourne. Ben is a monster on TV, but in real life, he is so much bigger. Ben and I both left the area at the same time, I was walking, ben was driving. As I was walking up the street, past the car park entries, Ben was pulling out, Ben waived me past, we both gave the thumbs up to each other.

Saw a few of the Sydney boys at Sydney Uni while I was attending night classes there a few years back. Mike Pyke, Josh Kennedy and Kieran Jack.

Going back further, saw Brett Kirk at a farmers market at Fox Studios while i was manning an egg stand. Yelled ' Go Swans', he just smiled and gave me a thumbs up.

Have seen the same group of young Collingwood players (including Isaac Quaynor and Callum Brown, I don’t recognise the rest) having lunch at the overpriced yuppie fish and chip shop on Swan Street three or four times in the last month.

when scanning...did he take HUGE wind ups ? like the item must be 5m away from the laser and then deliberately slowly, he swipes it

If you just get basic fish and chips it's not too expensive, and pretty good too.

Used to work behind the bar at Etihad Stadium (as it was called back in the day). One night after I finished work I found myself in an elevator with Cameron Ling & Matthew Richardson & had a little chat with them. Served Jason Dunstall a beer once, too.
