Former Melbourne captain Garry Lyon and media doyen Tony Charlton last night delivered stirring addresses at the inaugural Norm Smith Oration in the Members Dining Room.
In what is destined to become a hallmark event on the football calendar, last night's joint initiative by the MCC and Melbourne Football Club to reprise the legacy of the ten-time premiership player/coach was roundly applauded.
