Rex Hunt says Richmond must resist offering Dustin Martin whatever he wants


Rex Hunt says Richmond must not offer Dustin Martin an open cheque book to remain with the club.

Hunt, who played in two premierships with the Tigers, said Richmond should only keep Martin for the right reasons.

He said loyalty must come before money.

Martin simply dominated the season opener against Carlton, collecting 33 disposals, four goals and all-but-certainly three Brownlow votes in the Tigers’ 43-point win.

Speaking on 3AW’s new Footy Nightline program, Hunt rejected suggestions the Tigers had to offer Martin whatever he wanted.

‘I don’t think money can buy this man,’ Hunt said.

‘One thing money can’t buy is loyalty and a real feeling for a club.’
