Iterestingly the article says that Occy was born at June 2, 1966; but the info box says June 16, 1966. What's right? (Despite the fact that the 16. is also stated in the so called "Occumentary" DVD). -- ReneRomann (talk) 20:41, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
I think there is a lot of content in the 'Life and career' section that is not of encyclopedia standard. Statements like "cocky 17-year-old" , "arguably the best backside performance ever seen at Jeffreys Bay", and "set performance standards over the next few years that still haven’t been matched" are biased, include weasel words and lack references. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rockingrobot (talk • contribs) 14:58, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
Looks like several of the passages - they stand out as not normal Wikipedia-sounding "voice" - have been copied without attribution from here http://www.hsssurf.com/shof/?p=62 (published in July 2004). Anyone care to check and strip it out from here? Wittylama 04:27, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
