May as well start this one with all the recent reports.

Context - Martin's manager Ralph Carr recently told Sydney-based The Daily Telegraph that "Dusty loves Sydney" and has "two years to go at Richmond". These comments were made despite the fact that he signed a seven year extension to stay with Richmond in 2017 which is set to expire in 2024. Buddy Franklin also happens to have two years (2021 & 2022) left on his massive Swans contract. The report also claims the now 29 year old Martin is attracted by a potential long-term contract in Sydney akin to Buddy's.

Further context - Dusty moved to Camden in Sydney's south-western suburbs at the age of 14 where he played footy for the Camden U16s, Ingleburn U16s and Campbelltown U18s. The Swans reached out to the 15 year old Martin at the time and asked him to join their academy program but he declined the offer and returned to Castlemaine the following year.

Even more context - A 22 year old Dusty walked out on the Richmond Football Club in mid-September 2013 and flew up to Sydney where he was photographed touring GWS's new facilities (see below) that were under construction then. His father was living in Sydney at the time and the Giants had reportedly offered Dusty a multi-million dollar contract to make the move north. It didn't eventuate and Martin returned to Melbourne to re-sign with Richmond two weeks later for considerably less money.

The small, pretty part of me wants Sydney to offer a 30+ y.o star forward another massive contract just for the lols when it inevitably goes south again.

The rational, footy loving part of me.....nope, sorry. F*ck Sydney. Please pull a Buddy 2.0.

Buddy to Sydney was a great investment. Many kids have 23 on their jumpers. They are future members. Not sure Dusty will get up there soon . He'll be 33 if he serves out his contract

Ralph Carr's comments about "Dusty hanging out with Cameron Munster" is interesting, given the schintilatting post that was shunted from here a few weeks back about Qld Premier Palaschook shagging Munster. A 3 way Palachook/Munster/Martin bonk would be legendary..

If he is on the market, reckon Swans will have a crack which they previously have done. They like to back themselves to reform bad boys.
Not much to reform. Other than his look, which can’t really be adjusted, and the odd off-season Vegas trip which IMO is his business, he otherwise seems a very professional and diligent athlete. He should play out his career at Richmond - they have done a lot for him

The swans have never been without a genuine marquee, extremely marketable player. They literally need it to stay relevant.

Capper
Lockett
Goodes
Hall
Franklin

They may attempt to turn Heeney into this person, however an opportunity to get one of the following to replace Buddy will certainly be explored:

Dustin Martin
Nat Fyfe
Jordan De Goey
Darcy Moore
