“First of all, I would just like to thank Geelong for an awesome game. You’re an awesome club,” Martin said post-match.
“Well done to Gaz on your unbelievable career. To the AFL, Toyota, the government, last but not least, the Richmond footy club. Let’s go!”
The 29-year-old joined Gary Ayes (1986, 1988), Andrew McLeod (1997-98) and Luke Hodge (2008 and 2014) as dual Norm Smith Medal winners last year, but he now sits in rare air.
“Geez, imagine becoming a three-time Norm Smith winner,” Ayres, the first person to win two, said during the week.
“Uniqueness and greatness, they’re two words that come to mind.”
