Heard it and loved it.How about his comments on dusty on the Sunday footy show. He was asked to comment on what makes dusty special. Normally you would hear stuff about training and diet and the like. But not our captain. No captain in sports history would have ever talked this way about a fellow player. Remarkable comments and an insight into the authenticity and honesty of this group.
Richmond captain Trent Cotchin said Martin had to learn to "love himself" on his path to becoming an AFL superstar.
"Everybody who speaks about him, particularly in the AFL world, is just in awe of his unique ability to will himself and win games off the back of his own boot," Cotchin said.
"But I think the thing that I love most about him is the journey that he's been on about really connecting with himself and finding that love for himself.
"I encourage it for everyone to be the case.
"The footy environment can be tough at different stages and the expectation that's put on players, particularly like himself, it can be a lot to deal with.
"But the way that he just shows up and continually just is true to himself is really impressive to watch from afar, but also from right by his side."
You can learn I think so much what this club has shown us these past 4 years how to be as a person, how to care, how to respect and lastly how to love.
