HB Meyers

HB has been around and seen a bit. He's possibly been around too long and seen a little too much. Some would call him jaded, and others would call him any number of unflattering names. He loves his Hawks, and is finally able to enjoy the Golden State Warriors after 30 years of pain. An unashamed football romantic, he makes no apologies for the way he writes about the sport he loves. We’re about footy at The Mongrel. Not gossip or scandal. Just footy.

Stella SS is new to the world of online writing. An avid Hawks supporter, she also watches her San Antonio Spurs at every opportunity. What is she hoping to get out of this venture? A creative outlet, an open forum to vent her frustrations with the sports she loves, and the opportunity to celebrate those same sports with like-minded people, or those diametrically opposed.

Cam is a Carlton supporter, but don't hold that against him. With a good eye for detail and a genuine love for footy, Cam can have an acid tongue, pen, or keyboard when he sees something he doesn't like.

Tom Basso is based in South Australia and absolutely adores Port Adelaide. But it’s not all bad. He also loves the footy, ice hockey, a good scandal and writing about it. He also talks non stop and quite loudly so you can probably hear him in the distance, or on Adelaide’s 1079 LIFE and Arch D Radio.

Mip sees the world a little differently to most. He's a unique character, with no social media accounts, so really I could write whatever I like about him here, and none of you guys would be able to contact him to let him know about it. He loves the Hawks, and also follows the Phoenix Suns - hahaha.

You can follow him on the street. He likes that.


Trent started his Aussie Rules infatuation early, attending his first game as 3-week old, a record he proudly bested with his own son at age 2.5 weeks. He is a 30+ year club member, and 25+ year MCC member, the fortunate beneficiary of a prenuptial agreement between his football loving parents that saw his Mum raise him as a passionate Hawk, while his dear sister until recently was burdened with a love for the Tigers following after her Dad. Trent is heavily involved in community sport, most notably Subbies Cricket with the Mighty Oaks, and is a long suffering Washington Nationals fan in the MLB.

Melbourne comedian since 1996. Can be seen regularly at The Comic’s Lounge in North Melbourne. Passionate Blues man. Single-figure handicap golfer (it’s a sport page, so let me brag).

Sam's weekends are well and truly defined by whether his team wins or loses. As a self-described football-tragic, nothing brings him greater joy than the spectacle of Aussie Rules Footy.

Loud and opinionated. A parochial South Aussie living in Melbourne (the worst type), Paul is an EX-cricketing export (still hanging onto that one 15 years after retiring…)

He tends to love successful clubs that aren’t successful anymore (examples include Port Adelaide FC, Liverpool Football Club, and the Aussie Test Team). A Professional Speaker and Facilitator, Paul also writes for Inside Small Business, The Retailer, and The Australian Sporting Goods Assoc. As a Mongrel, expect his articles to take themselves way too seriously.
