Look, I recognise Proust as a brilliant & creative essayist, but that's a Titch too far.
Its worth factoring in titch played with much of his footy life with the 'worse than fitzory crew' and cyril was handed prime Hodge, Mitchell, Roughead types.

Edwards has seemingly continued to get better since the broken leg / obscenely high in the coaches votes time period. Now into his 30s and still improving

Titch is a very good player, but he's not even in the same stratosphere as Wingard currently, much less this super-star, all-time indigenous side.

When the mercurial $100 bill Wingard can't even get a look-in, then mentioning the $5 Titch as even a remote possibility for inclusion, just looks silly.

His nickname is shedda

And by the end of his career he may well be the best indigenous player in history

Please, please, please to all you Richmond fans. You won this years premiership, well done, go and celebrate it, but ease off on the “player X is the greatest player ever etc ....”. The joke has worn very thin, already.

Edwards is a good player, Cyril is a step or two above, Maurice a step or three above that.

Some of them have been hitting the juice a smite too hard it seems.

Soon they'll rival Bombers supporters, in drinking their own bath-water.

There arent many with that x factor, Cyril had it, Edwards doesnt & pls dont take that as a put down of him.
It'd only be one-eyed Tigers posters who'd claim Edwards has the same level of magic Sizzle exhibited.....Sizzle was on another plane of being altogether.

I see the power of your comprehension has been awe-struck by the mighty Sizzle highlights.....So you now resort to sleighing a Brownlow Medallist who isn't even germane to this thread topic.

one could make a montage of just handballs the real titch has done and it would poo all over a cyril highlight reel from the day he was born

i like how possession stats dont matter with cryil btw - and with warps they are the meaning of life

Tich eh, bog ignorant: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/180299348/20728528

Tich is small - RICHMOND midfielder Shane Edwards has been known as 'Titch' for good reason. When he came over from North Adelaide he was so skinny ...

Tich is a damn good footballer but he is competing in a field of high achievers. Possibly if we still had Origin he'd be as well loved by South Australians generally too.
To call Cyril a plodder says it all.

What Michael Mitchell from Claremont? Again good footballer, best 18/22/25, nope.

Guess the Tiges suffer because indigenous footballers arent exactly thick on the ground & if you need to limit the field to played in Vic ... you'll exclude plenty in the top 10 ever.

brownlow plodder winner mitchell is apparently called titch

which is heinous, as the real titch is Mr Shane Edwards.

Might have something to do with the fact that they play in completely different positions on the field....Or has that escaped your comprehension also?

You've now referenced both Mitchell & Worpel in an indigenous thread…..You just can't help but keep losing the thread.

My guess is that those Sizzle highlights have rocked your foundations to the very core....Understandable really.

When the lesser titch, shedda, ed - call him what you will - has a NSM & 4 Premiership medallions to his name, then come see me.

1. What position does Edwards play tin foil face?
2. Didn't watch it but I assume it was alright
1. I don't believe any such position exists in Oz rules as 'tin-foil-face'.....Perhaps you've been watching too mny repeats of your fav movie, the Wizard of Oz.
2. Of course you didn't....Because you know it would render you speechless, mute, Gob-smacked even.
