I am not sure that it was your intent but that just typifies Tom to me... no holds barred and never hid from anything he did but was upfront and honest about it...John Gibbs had the misfortune of marking up on Tommy Raudonikis in his debut, and the legend of the ‘Phantom Biter’ was born.www.smh.com.au
I guess there are 2 Toms.I am not sure that it was your intent but that just typifies Tom to me... no holds barred and never hid from anything he did but was upfront and honest about it...
Certainly no angel though lol...
And that's how we should all be remembered @Shoe1...I guess there are 2 Toms.
I have vivid memories of him spitting in the faces of players, biting, gouging, ripping at cuts, punching guys while they were held by tacklers. Also sooking big time when behind. It is hard to reconcile this dirty, bad sportsman with the latter day “larrikin hero” he became.
I have learned a bit though from reading this thread about him being kind to people, including manly fans, off the field even when he was in his playing days, so I see he had good in him too.
