George Goninon was Geelong's champion goalkicker at full-forward in the 1951 and 1952 Grand Final wins and going strong in 1953 with the Cats hot favourites to make it three in a row. However he was dropped from the team, which lost the flag to Collingwood by two goals. In 2007, now 80 and living on the Gold Coast, the twice-married Goninon claimed he was a victim of the times, a strict church-on-Sundays age when, being married, he had an affair and was found out.

Geelong, with 90 percent churchgoers, frowned on him and dropped him out of the team in the final series after kicking 65 goals in 18 games in 1953.
