What's the story behind this song?
Did he actually have a pigeon or something?
I can't believe you didn't know he had pigeons!
Anyway, it's been a while since the last big dunc debate!
I think that the word legend is probably right, but only because it isn't applied correctly to players like Dixie etc.
They should be classed as greats AND legends.
Legends tend to be stories that have some elements of truth, but that have become exaggerated over time so that eventually it's hard to distinguish the factual from the mythical. Legends also have to have a popular appeal which reaches into the souls of those who they are supposed to either inspire, or strike fear into.
I'd say that those criteria certainly apply to Big Dunc.
Although he was never consistent enough to be classed as a great.
The bar at EFC is far too high for that.
