    It's a stain that can never be removed now.....so unfortunate.....so unnecessary.....and so undeserved.

    Wiz was his nickname as in "wizzer". Gerard Healy still refers to him as the wiz

    Had the pleasure of witnessing some of these marks live, going back to Teaser's hanger over Billy Picken and Max James classic against Hawthorn, both in 1978 I think?

    Capper's mark over Langford at VFL Park is the most freakish I've ever seen live. Lucky that it happened right in front of me and had same view as that rear camera shot. Even the Hawthorn supporters around me STOOD and CLAPPED after he'd taken it (hard to believe now I know!!!!). Unfortunately it was the only highlight as we got smashed that day by 99 pts!!! It was the 1987 QF and Capper kicked his 100th Goal for the season in that game, with little fanfare such was the demolition. He kicked 4 of the team's 8 goals that day.

    I remember when John Roberts took that screamer against St Kilda (1980), later reading that both Bob Pratt and Laurie Nash were in the wooden stand to witness it. Bob gave his nod of approval to see a full foward in red & white and wearing No.10, soar in the air just like he did almost 50 years earlier.

    While the mark of Leo Barry is the greatest of all time, it was terrific to see Kelly, Goodes and Capper in their marking prime. It also served as a reminder of how good Sam Reid can/could be. Also, terrific to see Andrew Dunkley in the mix - height challenged and an awkward kick but a great competitor.

    I think Capper is one of the most underrated ex-players around.
    He's always made a joke of himself and played the fool a bit, and I think he really enjoys his life.
    This may have overshadowed just how well he could play. I watch a highlight reel and am reminded at how good he was.
    Wish he'd managed to finish at the Swans.

    He did albeit not on a Capper-esque high

    Yeah, was getting at one club player.

    Not a mark, but something beautiful to watch...Mark Bayes kicking action 2 minutes into the video.

    Bayes left foot also features in this sport blog: The Joy of Six: Australia's left-footed geniuses | Sport | The Guardian

    We’ve had heaps of great left footers, but memory not serving me well. However, I do recall Darren Kappler’s great left foot, Stew Maxfield was another Leon Higgins was OK. None get close to Bayes.
