Tommy Ridiculous never won a premiership but he was truly entitled to be called a LEGEND.
He could have been on our coat of arms as well because he never took a backward step.
Other players were wary if not apprehensive playing him.
A tough no nonsense half who would spend most of his time in empathy or cultural courses or on suspension in todays game
He called and played it as he saw it, no room for politeness or head patting for Tommy.
Sadly a life time of very heavy smoking finally caught up with him, testicular and throat cancer took their toll
I was always a little agitated when Frank Hyde was calling a Saints game playing against Tommy, Kelly, Alchin, Diamond, Donnelly, boyd and Hornery.
