I have been a maggies supporter for my entire 34 years.

I love the club. My dad started to take me to maggies games from the age of 2. I started playing footy for Berala Bears when I was 4 years old in the under 7`s. I had one real hero and that was Tommy.

My dad used to go to the Dancers club at Lidcombe or to the pub there, he used to buy me a drink and leave me outside.

These days I drive to the Footy and I drag the old man along.

Tommy was just so inspirational to me as a kid. Even though I played hooker for 24 years I still yearned to be as tough as Tommy.

Little bloke huge heart.

My dad even bought a jersey from him when he used to own the sport store at Blacktown.

When he coached Wests I was able to get him to sign my then current jersey as well.

Whenever I hear him on the radio or see him on tv he just seems to epitomise what being a Magpie is all about.

Long live Tommy and the Magpies

ps..their current jersey sucks though go back to the original
