No worries, I was just about to send you a PM, and make sure you didn't take my post the wrong way. I only quoted your post because it pretty much summed up how I see a lot of others feel about his being on our board.
I don't really remember commenting too much on Franklin/Hall/Pavlich/Brown and the umpires attitudes toward them. I think Buddy gets hard done by on occasion. He gets manhandled a bit, no more than Cam Mooney though. He makes it hard for the umps through his own actions on occasion too, loves to cede front position in a 1 on 1 and nudge players under the ball, and likes to palm tacklers in the face would be my observations. Thought in the PF against St Kilda a couple of years ago Hudgton should have been pinged several times and he wasn't.
Any throwaway troll stuff in Bay 13 needs to be taken as just that.
sorry mate just stirring or at least trying to lloyd i do rate when he is great he is un stoppable and he did work other areas not just forwards line he normally kicks more then 3 against us if i remember rightly
