Now is certainly sooner than never - which would be the appropriate time

Yes, 100% agree to do it for players who have won the award the most. Also rename the Norm Smith after Dusty or at least hyphenate it. GAJ should be the MVP or hyphenated with Lethal as well. Nobody will break the latter 2 records. Seems silly not to recognise them when they are clearly better than the people who it’s named after.

Smith won 4 as a player and 6 as a coach. When Dusty gets close to that, give the AFL a call

Um what? The first norm Smith was in 1979, so he didn’t win any Dusty has the outright record with 3. This award is for BOG in a GF not premierships.

There is no way you are going to argue Norm Smith was a better play than Dusty, unless you are an idiot.

One day you will remove your head from your arse far enough to realise that the only idiot around here is you

Maybe we could award the Dusty Martin Medal to the player with the shittest tattoos?

Let's name something after every player who has ever played a game in the past 10-20 years? Seriously, the game is nowhere near as good as it was pre-2010, probably pre- 2000, yet every year the media and fans salivate over players calling them the greatest of all time in everything they do. People talk as if they have never seen a great Goal or Mark before?

The only thing I will say is, I thought it was a bit odd to name the best player in the GF after someone who was more famous as a coach (to be fair, Norm Smith also played (well) in 3 winning GFs, so, eeeh maybe).
