If you could buy a kit to create the archetypal 1980s rugby league player, the box would contain a blueprint for Lee Crooks and come with a warning: Contains Strong Opinions.
He burst onto the rugby league scene in an era when hard men ruled and big egos were encouraged. He was just a teenager when he signed but his special talent soon made him stand out - and it didn't take him too long to develop a strong personality of his own.
On this week's Super League Super Men, Lee talks frankly about why having a big ego was vital in that 'sink or swim' era, but how the adulation and rewards that came with being a star took their toll.
He was capped 19 times for Great Britain when really, he says, he should have more. "I have only got myself to blame," he says with honesty.
He was a player with a great talent that was in demand, but he admits that his attitude let him down. He broke the transfer record when he left Hull for Leeds for £150,000, but he was far from happy. He didn't want to leave Hull, and certainly didn't want to join Leeds. "I didn't deal with it very well," he admits.
But for all the regrets, Crooks has maintained his love for the game of rugby league, and can look back on a career with more highs than lows. After Leeds he moved to Castleford where his enthusiasm was rekindled and his life was put back on track, thanks to the guidance of the coach Darryl Van de Velde.
They certainly don't make 'em like Crooks anymore.
You could say the same for Keith Senior. This week he welcomes Sam Tomkins into his home to talk about some of the 199 tries he scored in a Super League career which began in the very first Super League game, for Sheffield against Paris St Germain.
He was a familiar fixture at centre for Leeds until injury brought his career to a halt last year. But it's a try he scored for Sheffield that Sam has picked as this week's Super Try.
Some individual brilliance is on show... as well as a head full of hair. Ah, memories.
