“When his teammates head for holidays after the the Swans' final game of the season against Geelong on Sunday, Franklin will remain in work to strengthen his body in the hope of being ready for pre-season in the new year.”

Maybe play him at Full Forward and tell him to stay there .

Not totally abnormal for players of vintage. MOL barely trained in his last number of years. It just means he will be on a very individual program for the rest of his career.

I am keeping my thoughts positive, hopefully we see a few more games from Buddy yet. Certainly given themselves plenty of time to work on his body and strength is definitely the right focus for now.

You will be right at some point if you keep saying the same thing each year.

Actually being backed up by facts.
As a big forward over 32, the odds were against him.
Gamble with known risk was taken & here it is.
I'm not guessing here. His body is telling us all.

Goodes did his PCL in the GF aged 32, missed quite a bit of footy and still played another two-plus years. Not just my comparison - Colless made the connection with Goodes when he did the Franklin deal, saying the club expected he'd have the same longevity. Missing for the best part of two seasons is also isn't bad for extending a playing career.

For 20 years I was saying that Boomer Harvey was going to retire. I was vindicated in the end!

Yes true but Goodesy played games other than when he took time off.

Buddy's missed a year & a half & struggled to get up for the last farewell game for the boys.
It's a very different feel.

Despite all this I hope you guys are right & he gives you plenty ammunition to get on here & hassle me for years to come.:)
