AFTER 43 YEARS OF ITS EXISTENCE, THE SMITH CURSE IS OVER, Congratulations….
Isaac ‘Norm’ Smith!
32 disposals (Most on the ground), 3 goals, 12 marks, 4 premierships, first player to play in premierships for both Geelong and Hawthorn, oldest Norm Smith Medal winner in history (33 years, 268 days)…
Absolute romp too, with 3 votes from 4 out of the 5 judges:
I can only think if he’d stayed at Hawthorn, he’d probably be retired by now.
