Actually medic is a crutch class
don't need to aim, stick near strongest team mates
ultimatly crutchy.

The only crutch class is Soldier, by nature of his being the 'jack of all trades' class. The rest are expert specialists all with varying degrees of overlap in their specialties (which is how the hard counter situation is avoided). Soldier is the short-circuit wildcard that does it all, arguably/supposedly less capably than any other within the specialties but in reality pretty much unmatched in mid-range combat and mobility, peer with the actual specialists in most others.

Please the Poopy Joe is the crutch class, but i'm pretty sure Redmond is also.

I wouldn't call him a crutch. He takes skill to use effectively, but he and the Demoman could be combined into the same class without a huge impact on the balance of the game. He's sort of like a Demoman with a shotgun.

Then again you could say scout's just a fast engie without buildings. Their weapons may have some similar rough mechanics but that doesn't mean they could be combined easily without impact; I can't play soldier to save my life but I sure can demo.

The uses of the scout and engineer are completely different though. The Soldier and Demo do a lot of the same things, it's just the way they are done. The Demo/Soldier could have the options to use a GL or RL for a primary and the Shotgun/SL for a secondary and it wouldn't affect the balance of the game that much.
