When it comes to putting bums on seats at the footy, the Prince of Punt Road may be the best at it in the game currently. With his trademark fend off and haircut, both known as the “Dusty”, Dustin Martin has the world of the AFL at his feet. His ability to play his best footy when it matters most has spectators in awe, with numerous past players and coaches posing the thought that Martin may be the best big game player ever, highlighted by his multiple Norm Smith medals. Despite his laid back and media shy personality, Dustin is a superstar of the competition, perhaps being the most marketable player of the competition.
