Dusty will be recognised everywhere, just as much in Sydney, it's all media rubbish, swans cap is bursting, as many young players needing and getting pay rises,they can't even pay buddy anywhere near what he was on just as much for cap reasons as for performance.
this is one aspect I find interesting.
its a fishbowl here then Sydney with his standing he won’t be living the life as a recluse .
recently when he has time away in Syd the Daily Mail were papping him constantly

Only richmond and AFL supporters know Dusty you could go to any state show his picture and if they don’t follow richmond or AFL they’d reply “who’s that”

it could be explained by Ralph Carr strategically milking the media as free publicity to raise his player's profile.

A larger profile allows him to attract more money from non-AFL streams, which was ultimately how he allowed Dusty to earn more by staying at Richmond than by going to North when he drew things out in 2017.

You’ve hit the nail on the head. Ralph is a very greedy manager and all he looks at is the dollars all this free publicity just increases Dusty’s profile - probably not something Dusty wants but Ralph would
