Richmond star Dustin Martin has shown little sympathy after bowling over a goal umpire in his side's thrilling comeback win against the GWS Giants.

With the Tigers trailing by nine points and just 6:19 remaining on the game clock in the final quarter, Martin got his toe to a ball on Richmond's goal line, before his momentum took him through goal umpire Adam Wojcik.

The impact of the clash sent Wojcik tumbling to the ground and he was left with a dislocated shoulder after attempting to brace the fall by extending his right arm.

The goal was Martin's fourth of the evening in a sensational performance where he led his side's comeback after they trailed by 28 points in the second quarter.

Martin was granted leave from the club to visit his father in New Zealand last week and missed the Tigers' round-seven win over the Western Bulldogs. It came as he served a mandatory stint on the sidelines because of concussion.

Martin checked on the umpire after the collision but had a hilarious take on the clash after the Tigers' thrilling five-point win.

"It was a bit of carry-on from the umpire, I think," Martin told Fox Footy when asked about the incident.

"I'll tell you what, Dusty might not get a Brownlow vote after that one," Eddie McGuire said on commentary after Martin's savage response.

"Poor old umpire has dislocated his shoulder. I don't think that he knew that he's dislocated his shoulder."

  Spoilers: The cricketing saga (Part 2) In the first part of this article, written a few months back, I looked back at Sir Don Bradman’s famous final-innings duck and Sir Everton Weekes’ unfortunate run out. Here, I would look back at few more spoiler cases. Interestingly all my four cases here involve a batsman with a score in the 90s. I will start at the WACA in 2001, where Shane Warne was frustrating the opposition, this time with the bat. WACA 2001 Spoiler: the umpire Sir Don Bradman scored the most famous duck in Test history, and Warne probably produced the most famous 99 of all time. And for this, we have to thank the umpire.

Incredibly, it was the second consecutive week where Wojcik got into close quarters with the players after going viral for standing his ground on the goal line as Lions star Joe Daniher leapt on his shoulders last week.

"He has stayed tough in the face of fire," AFL great Gerard Healy said.

"He hasn't even flinched and in the space of two weeks he's turned himself into a cult hero."
