Warwick "The Wizz" Capper was at one stage the highest paid player in the game and is a human highlight reel. His stardom was not only on the football field but rumour has it he may have taken down the entire Swans cheerleading team in a spa bath once in his hay-day. The Wizz played for Sydney & Brisbane and played 124 games kicking 388 goals including 103 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 tight shorts helped make him one of the game's most recognisable 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 Lamborghini and Edelsten's pink 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.
