Richmond legend Neville Crowe rescued by Tigers supporter
This morning, the Rumour file learned Richmond club legend Neville Crowe took a nasty spill while riding his bicycle along the Yarra in North Richmond at the weekend.
He tumbled eight metres into the River and was saved by a passing jogger who happened to be a Richmond fanatic.
Neil Mitchell chased down the good Samaritan, John Greene, for a quick chat this morning.
"He was possibly in danger of drowning. When his head popped up in the water it was a great relief but he definitely needed to be pulled out," Mr. Greene told Neil Mitchell.

Greene said it required a daisy chain of other bystanders to pull him out of the water.
"We all went down the bank to the edge of river and I was able to drag him through the mud to the the embankment. Luckily we were able to form a human chain and drag him out."
The 75-year old Crowe, who suffers from alzheimer's, played for Richmond from 1957-1967 and served as the club President from 1987-1993. He retired in 2008 after serving the club for over fifty years.

"It took a few seconds, but I recognised that familiar mustache and told him he was in good hands. My family are Richmond supporters through and through," Greene said.
Unable to reach Crowe's wife, Greene rang Brendon Gale, CEO of the Richmond football club and let him know what happened. He then drove the footy legend home to his house in Burwood.
"What better then a Richmond supporter hero to pull another Richmond hero out of the Yarra," Neil Mitchell said.
