Big Game Player 5: Fred Goldsmith

Fred Goldsmith_2015-05-22 15.19.03The South Melbourne champ is the only full-back to have won the Brownlow. At 82, he’s also the oldest living Brownlow medallist. But in one area of footy he’s better than Bunton, Reynolds, Skilton and Stewart combined. He remembers every game and every player and he’s got a tale about all of them: the fire station on medal night, the rough treatment from Mopsy Fraser, the magic of Bill Gunn. Sit back, unlace your boots, and listen to one of footy’s greatest storytellers, the mighty Fred Goldsmith.
