Gurgler 2016 Person of the Year

There are just 13 more sleeps left to vote in The Gurgler’s 2016 Person of the Year poll.

Who will win? The strongest man in Football – Adebayo Akinfenwa aka The Beast, or the forgotten man of Australian golf Rod Pampling.

Or could it be the winner of our 2016 favourite forgotten Olympian Loudy Wiggins.

Perhaps it belongs to the gents at the The Betoota Advocate for all their breaking news gold.

Brisbane’s hardest working politician Charles Strunk Councillor for Forest Lake Ward must be a chance.

And Gurgler fan Frankington Stanley.
