The Herald Sun has revealed businessman and Tigers fan Daniel Haas handed Short a watch to congratulate the 24-year-old.
“It was just a gesture and I am so humbled that he accepted the watch to begin with,” he said.
“It’s a gold and black watch, my favourite of the watches I sell. He came over and I thought he was nearly going to get the Norm Smith and I said to him, this is from my collection and my son wants to give it to you.
“I have been a Tiger fan all my life, I am very lucky we moved to Queensland and our cases are down compared to Victoria but I managed to get Grand Final tickets and it was an unreal experience.
“To take my son and best mate to the game was so good, especially over the team where I grew up in Geelong.
“I was always copping flak from Geelong supporters. For him to come back and give me a big handshake was so good.”
Haas started an online business last year and was ecstatic to be able to hand over some if his own work to a premiership star.
To be wearing one after the game and be able to pass it on to Jayden, I was lost for words”
Short ended the night second on the Norm Smith Medal voting behind star midfielder Dustin Martin.
