You might remember Big Willie Mason from the greatest mic'd up sporting performance ever. But for Korbin Sims, he remembers him from their time as teammates with Newcastle before Mason moved to Manly.

Offended? Please. I think it’s hilarious. I hope he doesn’t [get charged for the incident] because me and Korbin are really good mates and I think it was unlucky because of the timing of it all.
