David Mundy has revealed that he is just as nervous about making the vote for the Norm Smith Medal in the Grand Finals as he is about to play.
The recently retired Docker was handed the enviable task of picking the best player between Geelong and Sydney in Saturday’s decider.
“The nerve-wracking part[of the day]was asking for votes for the Norm Smith Medal,” he told 96FM.
“When first asked, I was like, ‘I don’t think it’s too much responsibility. I just want to go and enjoy the day.'”
“I said yes in the end, but I was very nervous.
Mundy was left alone in the second half while his family enjoyed the party and bars as the Cats blew the game to take the 10th flag with 81 points.
“After the fight I feel like I did well. I gave Isaac three. When he was announced as the winner of the Norm Smith Medal, it was like I won. I celebrated it hard,” he said.
Prior to the match, 376-game Docker was given the honor of a full lap in front of a crowd of 100,000.
“(It) was pretty great and I was happy to share it with them,” he said.
“We finally got into the back of the Hilux Utes under the stadium and all three kids were in the back with me. Shane Edwards and his beautiful young daughter were completely on my lap. sat.my kids running.absolute mud behind this car.
“I’ve spoken to a few people leading it, and at that moment, at any point in this lap, one or all of my kids jumped out and went running and met Robbie Williams and Delta. It seemed likely to go to Goodrem.
“Being on the playing surface in front of 100,000 people in the stands, that kind of noise and it really freaked them out.”
Mundy grew up in the Cats barracks until he was drafted into Fremantle in 2003, and said it didn’t take long for his father to return to his old ways.
“I grew up in Geelong barracks, but my father quickly returned to the Geelong tragedy,” he said.
“I gave my ticket to him and my sister who is also a Geelong tragedy and they went along.”
