Buddy fair compensation
Lance 'Buddy' Franklin is a once in a generation player that no team can afford to lose. The loss of Big Bud will be felt by the whole football club both on and off the field. On the field we lose 70+ goals and the attention of the best defender. Off the field we lose the highest revenue generating player in the history of the game. The number 23 is on the backs and in the hearts of so many Hawk supporters. We are those supporters and we are asking the AFL for 'Buddy fair compensation'.
