Yes let’s do it for the great man and destroy the Demon pretenders.
Ironic that his 250th is going to be played against the team that elected not to draft him. Twice. Maybe our banner should say "Thanks Melbourne, from everyone at Tigerland"

Not enough is being made so far this week of the great mans achievement.

He should have been front & back of every paper this week and his highlights on TV 24-7.

I’ve said it once, and I’ll repeat it again, his legacy will be his unselfishness, being totally team orientated and only ever focused on winning games of football.

For someone of his ability and accolades, it’s astonishing how little he cares about the individual stuff.

Will be forever grateful that Dustin Martin was the primary figure in our club’s revival over the past ten years including 3 flags I never thought I’d live to see. Whatever happens from here is a bonus but will just love watching Dusty play for as long as he’s able.

Such a rort that he was not AA in 2019.

Its absurd that Paddy Diverwhack is an 8 x All Australian and Dusty is only 4 time. No one would pick PD over Dusty in their team.

Mind you, i reckon AA is rather lame anyway, but decisions like this make it even more so.

I remember quite well the Demon fans saying that even though Dusty was a better kick, that Trengove and Scully were better decision makers and that they would each be better as a result.
They did both leave Melbourne, that proved a good decision.

The 2017 highlights package is worthy of 15 seasons worth of work. It’s all you need to know.

It’s that reason that makes him so good and why we’ve won 3 Premierships. He plays the complete team game, whereas someone like Dangerfield plays for himself.
