    What a great journalist he was. Loved him on the Back Page especially.

    Bought a humorous twist to all things sport.

    The Manly hate in his "sports news" can now be buried with him.
    He never got to see a revival of the Bears. Too bad.

    Alan Clarkson, now Mike Gibson - the old guard is dying out this year :(

    Mike stayed loyal to his Bears to the end :bearface:

    He hated our guts, but you could never question that he was a great TV journo with a sledge hammer wit. RIP Gibbo

    Sad to hear about Mike Gibson. Used to love the Wide World of Sports in the 80's with Ian Chappell and Max Walker.
    He was a passionate North Sydney Bears fan but I guess no one is perfect.
    RIP Mike

    He was the best sports journo of my lifetime IMO, a character and a good fella, a very sad day.

    Norths supporter base just halved.
    A Manly hater, but a fun one.

    He REALLY hated us. If the Spit Bridge fell down he would have thought it a great day. He can now bother the other side with tales of what will never be for his Bears.

    Terrible news if true.

    Is it just me or are there more and more cases of people taking their lives (or maybe it is just reported more truthfully these days)
