in the clubs great era's there will always be players who will be mentioned when those Eras are talked about and names and memories handed down to people who have not seen them play.These players while not legends themselves deserve to be mentioned along side legends

The Golden Generation is in itself pretty much legendary. Within that context, the respective contributions may be judged by representation within those winning teams. JJB is right up there for me.

Many supporters use Alex Simmon's definition of RL legend which appears to be anyone who has worn a RL shirt and bought him a pint. JJB is a loyal club player but not a legend by any stretch of the imagination.

Utter tripe got f'all to do with how simmons uses it.

Ian Kirke immediately springs to mind
[watching Mackay testing the curry in the prison kitchens]
Fletcher: Course, he sees 'imself as an authority on curry, he does, on account of where he was stationed in the army.
Rudge: Where? India?
Fletcher: No, Bradford.

Ian Kirke won 4 = I think - so what does that say?

Legend is about there quality as a player not what they have won
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

Location: Nottingham. 800 years ago outlaws stole from the rich. Little has changed here

For me the term legend is made up of many areas. A legend needs to have been at a club for a long period of time, have been a player of real quality, and have been someone who was instrumental in the success of the team. There aren't many players who can tick all the boxes. For me I don't think he was quite a good enough player to tick the middle box. He was effective and reliable and made the most of the talent he had with his attitude and dedication. He wasn't a standout player of his generation.

However, for me that puts him in a similar place as Burrow and McGuire

Really? He was solid in the GF wins, but never a standout. McGuire and Burrow played major roles in wins. As did Sinfield. In terms of impact in one or more GFs he'd be behind the likes of JP, Leuluai, Lauti'iti, Diskin, Ablett, Webb, Lee Smith, Donald, Senior and Hardaker. He'd be in any 17 'best of' team to reflect the era, and his contribution shouldn't be overlooked, but lets not pretend he was as influential as some others.

Every successful team has players fans like and the rest of the squad value highly both on and off-field. Some are lucky and play in very successful teams, others just don't (I'm thinking Roy Powell here for some reason, but Dave Heron and many others would qualify).

JJB has been this generation's Graham Eccles. He's a Leeds legend, and has been the heart and soul of the club as a whole for a decade.

Maybe a spell in prison would do Graham good.

At least he'd lose his virginity.
