It is always a great source of amusement to be quoted by a fool, even more so if quoted by a disalusioned "stickie"

William and Tboy,did you ever meet Stormy?He was a tough character but he was a human being as well and probably would have been quite happy if people had left him alone.It's easy to make fun of those who can't respond so why do it?Isn't anonymity handy.

Interesting thread, pity it has to be spoiled by those who spew puerile remarks. These "Hardmen" were part and parcel of our local history, the stuff of legend, like them or loathe them they represented an era when it was not acceptable to hide behind a bomb when settling an affront. They were in your face and when a fight was over it was over. I see no need to insult them or their memory. If you need to hide behind a keyboard to poke fun then move on. Would you have been so brave when they were in their prime? I think not.  I have always found Rossers posts to be fair, balanced and informative. I have never seen him throwing insults at anyone(unlike me).  I don't know what a "gobber" is, I guess I've been away too long but I would suggest it would apply more to the poster than the target :angry2: :angry2: :angry2:

The hard men were all a part of our history.  they fought with thier fists, dont think theres any  hard men about now, knives and guns etc,  or a mob onto one.

I used to have a drink in the Diamond Jubilee on a Friday after work, maybe for just an hour but the 'regulars' knew that I was a Catholic and one of them was a'real' hardman  Tassy Calderwood,  I even slagged him off    before departing out the side door :D

I know a guy who new the buck well, he tells me Alec done a lot of good things for his local community, if a loan shark was coming on to heavy to a client, or a landlord was trying to evict someone because . somebody else was willing to pay him a few pennies more rent, Alec would have a quiet word and get it sorted for them, also apparently he would fight in mutton dummies as not to do anyone lasting damage.

Don't know about the mutton dummies but he did do a lot of favours for people he knew....some members of my family lived in the Docks area and were glad of him helping them out a few times.

but, if it makes you happy, keep making up stories
