Got a nice email of Dusty this evening.

he said we will fight and fight and win.

It was nice of him to drop me a line.

I remember when l used to get calls from Richo, asking me if l would be going to the game or not.

Fight and fight and win in front of no-one.
Doesn't have the same ring to it.
Where not North Melbourne

Everytime I hear or read an article about Melbourne and they're "non-tanking"... I think how lucky we are they didn't take Dusty!
Btw, I do hope Brock McLean gets the help he needs and goes on to have a happy life.

Boo Hoo to Melbourne.
For 25 years we heard we picked Fiora instead of Pavlich, then got creamed for another 15 years how we picked Richard Tambling in front of Buddy Franklin.
Over the last 10 years its barely spoken about how Melbourne had 2 picks and still didn't pick Martin.
Arrogant club and a Useless club Melbourne is.

Good point.
But we also passed on Franklin twice :).
Yes, granted, but if we'd got him he would have been under the watchful eye of Terry Wallace and Richard Tambling might now be in Sydney married to a supermodel with a couple of medallions in his sock drawer!;)

People don't understand.
Back then where was he going to play? We had Richo, Brown and Shultz.
He wouldve lasted with us regardless.
Pavlich was the one we missed out on. Collingwood used the first pick on Fraser. Thats the equivalent of using a first rounder on Mathew Francis.

My favourite Dusty moment is the first goal in the last qtr of the 2017 prelim against GWS. Dusty Dusty Dusty.
Mine too that goal is not talked about enough. He had it planned out about 5mins before the ball arrived. Broke the defenders ankles with that amazing athletic move. Knew we were playing in a GF right then.

That goal is unique, because he just made it look so easy. He made a contested situation into an inevitability. So you simultaneously think "How did he do that?" and "Of course he did that."

The Dusty moment for me in that game was sometime in the game where it was just kind of coasting. We had the lead, but they were coming and we didn’t seem to know what to do about it. Dusty ran into a contest, physically shoved a Giant aside, picked up the ball, put a don’t argue out there, ran off and kicked it to a team mate. It just sparked everyone, we kicked into high gear and never really looked back.
