One of my favourite all time Tommy R stories came from the Allan Langer book. Tommy was coaching Langer as a younster at the Ipswich Club in the Brisbane Competition, anyway Tommy was not happy with the amount of heart his team was playing with so before the next game he stopped in at the butcher and purchased the biggest, bloodiest ox heart he could find.

Later on in the changing sheds before kick-off as he was going through his pre-match motivation, he reached into his bag and pulled out this Ox heart dripping with blood.

He then screamed at his team that they were lacking ticker and that he wanted them all to take a bite out of the heart before taking the field! IIRC

I think Alfie suggested that they just pass the heart around and touch it instead in which Tommy agreed to.

I also enjoyed the 'cattle-dog' bit on the footy show.

Tommy was certainly one of a kind.
