    I would like to know all your thoughts on this incident where GWS hardman Shane Mumford sledged Sydney Swans star/celebrity Buddy Franklin about the mental issues that kept him out of the finals series last year.
    This was very out of line by Mummy and i think more needs to be made of it bcoz you just cant go swatting at peoples mental issues like that.
    I happen to know Buddy did it really tough last year and it was a credit to the great man that he managed to pick himself up from the floor to play really well this year.
    He must have done it tough to play most of the year only to miss the crucial end of season games bcoz of his issues.
    He is a credit to sport in Australia for coming back from such personal depths and the Swans club and AFL was exceptional in the way they helped him out of it.
    Mumford is shockers and should be suspended.
    Buddy is a Sydney treasure and should be treated accordingly.
    It must be tough being the most recognised current sportsperson in Sydney.

    We all know that Buddy wasn't out of the game for "mental health" issues.

    Buddy whoever he is should probably stop referring to his mother as "mummy" if he doesn't want to be sledged...

    What does Thurston, Johns, Smith, Meninga et al have to do with Bundy Fracking hiding his drug issues behind mental health excuses?

    Maybe you should write a song about it, throw in some Sydney geography while you're at it.

    The media are not reporting it this way and are all on Buddys side on this one as they know the pain and struggle he went through last year.
    I give you a challenge to find a current article about mental issues not being the problem for his exit from the finals last year.
    i bet you cant.
    Mumford should be suspended for what he did to Sydneys greatest and most well known sporting star.
    You should be ashamed of yourself to.
    You are just as bad as Mummy.

    Great old movie. Abbott and Costello meet the mummy, one of Buddy Abbotts great comedic efforts. An oldie but would still out rate anything thing the swines or gnats have to offer

    I had no idea that this incident happened until I saw it mentioned on the news last night. A very bad look for AFL, but hardly surprising really...
