Ugh, I can't say I'm a huge fan of Buddy Franklin (his shirt range was pretty gross towards women) but this is not about team rivalry or silly things he's done in the past. It's about not being a dick to people who are struggling with something they have no choice over. I like to think the times are changing but there's still a frustratingly long way to go.

I was going to mention Buddy on here too. The comments on Swans Facebook pages/groups have mostly been fantastic. Some of the stuff I've seen on the major news outlets pages though has been disgusting. I'm preaching to the choir here but you cannot just "toughen up" and get over it! He may not play for your team but have some compassion!
Good on him and the club for speaking up. Having such a high profile player come out about this is sure to start much needed conversations about mental health
Ray, when you're on the Titanic, you load the lifeboats. You don't stop to yell at the iceberg.

I'm a Collingwood supporter since birth, and my second team is North Melbourne. I also have Western Bulldogs membership complimentary of Vic Uni, lol.
Growing up I used to know every player, and loved watching the Pies play - Buckley, Rocca Bros, Licuria, etc
During my late teenage years I didn't pay much attention to the footy, but gotten back into it the last coupke of years. My favourite players atm are probably Dane Swan and Adam Goodes. Ive been to plenty of games over time, but only been going once or twice a year recently.
I'm loving the finals atm!
