How good is the look on Dimma's face after Dusty kicks that last goal?

Shrugs off Danger like he's an Auskick kid, kicks goal of the year and Dimma throws the headset down clearly thinking "this is the easiest gig in the world!"
Watched it again sunday night.

Its as close as youlle get to perfection on a footy field.

Stalks stanley?, with complete certainty of an intercept. Almost like he has occupied his opponents brain.

He steals, danger grabs him and he just stops dead on the boundry line and danger keeps going.

And slots it from an impossible place.

Im with dimma. It was unfathomable perfection. A gift to us all.

It was better than his 2019 gf perfection. Which is theoretically impossible.

Thereby proving that dusty can do the impossible

Failed to apply pressure. Chose not to tackle. One-way player.

Had the pleasure of catching up with a few old mates I grew up with on Saturday night at the plough inn Tarrawingee, if you know “Tarra” you know 99% of the good folk there support the Roos , due to the fact most are related to Mick Nolan , anyway during the evening , one of Micks nephews says “congrats on the Premiership mate“ I said “which one :)) “ I’m really enjoying this gloating, stick it up ya new attitude;)

It was interesting to see Dusty employ a rugby style kick with about a minute to go in the third. Just kicked a high torp forward and while Blicavs was trying to get a handle on the ball our smalls chased forward to harass him. Great improvisation.

His ‘kick arsenal ‘ is unbelievable.

Little kids in 16 years be like “why does that Martin guy always present the Norm Smith?”

Alternatively there might be no confusion when it gets renamed the Dustin Martin medal.

(Btw, it’s annoying that Tird announced the medal. Would have better as per Black and Pickett quietly done)

I let myself down just now. I try to drive without emotion. I really do. But when you indicate and wait and see if the the car in the right hand lane will see you indicate and drop back just a tiny bit more to allow to shift safely out of the middle lane.... only for him to hit the throttle and scream up to the car behind to tail gate and give you a clear message that he just wants to stuff you around, I couldn’t help it - I mean, it’s raining FFS - so I flip the bird. I know, I know. Pretty immature of me. Anyway, I slow down and fill in behind this turkey who then speeds up to shift across into the middle spot that I just vacated. I started to get even more annoyed at this fool.... until I saw it. A Geelong cats sticker on the back window. Then I was suddenly content with the universe again :)

Since this great day...

After multiple replays of the Gf's, done all the finals once now...

Time to start the epic journey of all our wins from 2017-2020. From memory we get no respect till deep into 2018.

This was almost my favorite piece of play. If that had of ended in Edwards kicking a goal instead of missing, boy o boy, wowee.

In the last quarter of the Saints final Dusty does an in traffic short lofted banana pass to Edwards. Puts it over his head as Edwards opponent was between them. Doesn't get the mentions some of his other exquisite passes do and the commentary team don't make a fuss about it. Pure genius and I'm not sure anyone else in the comp could have done it.
Actually I am sure. They couldn't have.

You are right there mj.

No one can execute the kicks he does so often.

Actually there were three St. Kilda players between Martin and Edwards at the time which is extraordinary because the kick only travels about 20 metres.
And to be fair, Bruce does give it a "Martin ... beau-u-u-u-utiful kick!".
Can't find it on YouTube but it's at 12:36 to go in the last.
