    You are a naughty, naughty person
    But here ya go....

    The nickname was bestowed by his Cronulla teammate Maurie Raper that year in the loungeroom of the captain, Tommy Bishop, when Rogers collapsed in a heap, drunk on beer for the first time in his life.

    "Hey, fellas, Steve looks like a hunk of sludge," Raper said then.

    Anyone posted "Smell My Finger" yet? Been around since 1980.

    An oldie but a goodie, and the punchline to many a joke.
