    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I love that he will have a ping whenever he thinks that he is the slightest chance of kicking a goal. We have (had, anyway we have improved) far too many nervous nellies that would rather kick the ball sideways or 25 metres backwards than have a shot from 20 metres out directly in front.

    Richmond not having any injuries really hurt him

    Dustin Martin makes his mark at ex-Tiger teammate’s wedding

    We know Dustin Martin is his own man.

    When you’ve got two Norm Smith Medals, a couple of premierships and a Brownlow Medal to your name you've probably earnt the right to roll your own way.

    His Richmond teammates are well aware of this but even they raised their eyebrows at his work at former teammate Sam Lloyd’s wedding.

    The Western Bulldogs forward got married in his hometown of Deniliquin, a three-and-a-half hour drive from Melbourne.

    Jack Riewoldt spilt the beans about Martin’s hit-and-run wedding antics on the Balls & Bumpers podcast, which he co-hosts with Supercars star Scott McLaughlin.

    “He (Martin) organised a private driver and instead of staying the night in Deniliquin, we all stayed in the Big Four caravan park which was amazing, an absolutely fantastic place that is,” Riewoldt explained.

    “He got a driver to drive him up and wait at the wedding.

    “They picked Dylan Grimes up on the way at Mt Macedon and got to the wedding at 4.30pm.

    “The dress code was cocktail, Dusty had a white shirt and jeans on but no-one batted an eyelid.

    “The the driver waited until 2am in the morning and then took him back to Melbourne.

    “We tried to send the driver home at certain times but it didn’t work.”

    That’s a surprise , maybe with Hannan and weightman coming on, being younger, quicker and more athletic he weighed up his options of playing the odd game, had other options outside of playing and took them.

    Good hard working player who was popular with fans, likeable bloke who gave his all.
    Good luck Sam in whatever you choose To do.
    Bring back the biff

    Thanks Sam for your efforts and all the best with your next stage of life.

    Who can tell me what this means for our list? Surely we knew this was coming otherwise it's incredibly poor timing after the draft period. Edit: oop I've taken myself over to the list management thread.

    Perhaps couldn't guarantee him a spot in the senior team.

    Good luck to Sam. Played some really good footy for us.
