The only story I have is...John Sattler was a relative of mine.

My grandmother was a Sattler. I met him once, he came to Maitland where I lived for a funeral.

I remember he gave autographs to me and my brother. We were about 10. I remember him standing before us he was huge and seemed square shaped..seemed about as wide as he was tall with huge legs. He was very gentle and soft spoken, it was hard to believe that he was so rough and tough on the field..but I did see him sink the fist into blokes during tackles. We used to be fanatic Souths fans then and so proud of John Sattler (and Les Darcy).

My father said that people in Hunter/coalfields area were usually South fans because lots of boys went from the Hunter area if they were good enough and played for Souths.

And we hated St George cause they beat us a lot during their 11 year reign. I remember a lot of the boys at school in Maitland went for Souths too.

My grandmother told me that When Satts owned a pub in Qld Alan Bond tried to pressure him into selling it.
