About Warwick Capper

  • Warwick Richard Capper (born 12 June 1963) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for the Sydney Swans and the Brisbane Bears in the Victorian Football League/Australian Football League.
  • An accomplished full-forward, Capper kicked 388 goals over a 124-game career, finishing runner-up twice in the Coleman Medal stakes with a peak of 103 goals in 1987.
  • He was also famous for his high-flying spectacular marks which earned him a Mark of the Year award in 1987. Known for his colourful personality and flashy looks, Capper was used as a marketing tool amid VFL expansion north of the Barassi Line, and for a time was one of few Australian rules footballers with a high profile in New South Wales and Queensland.
  • He became the VFL's highest-paid player in the mid-80s, and his blonde mullet, white or pink boots, and skintight shorts helped make him one of the game's most reconigsable figures.
  • Off the field, he was known for his association with flamboyant Swans owner Geoffrey Edelsten, as well as his foray into pop music with the 1985 single "I Only Take What's Mine", the music video of which features Capper's pink sports car and Edelsten's helicopter. His post-football career has included various media appearances, comedy tours, a self-released sex tape, a failed run for Queensland state politics, and work as a stripper, male escort and Surfers Paradise Meter Maid.
