    Hardly interesting either. Its as relevant to Sydney as a feud between two Romanian tightrope walkers over an ox and wagon.

    Buddy is amongst the most recognisable sportspersons in Sydney (mainly because the AFL arranged a high profile piece of crumpet to boost his profile) but I think Inglis, Burgess, Gallen, Steve Smith, Dave Warner, Mitchell Starc and several more outstrip him.
    Down in Melbourne the highest profile, highest paid and most recognisable sportsperson is Timmy Cahill, the Melbourne treasure...he will play in things called "internationals" against "other countries". He is a national treasure because he has laced up for his Country...
    Cahill is well respected because he can "control the ball" and is good at "kicking straight". Good for Melbourne finally getting to watch someone who can do those things.

    That's Vasile's ox and wagon you prick, and don't you forget it.

    So Weiners is an RL fan taking the piss right?

    It's too stupid and contrived even for one of the dickhole's from Big Floaty.

    Buddy wasn't depressed, he just suffers from a bit of nospam29.

    And when they answer the phone, they'll be more than happy to talk about Rugby League, because that's what footy is there.

    Call it, nothing will eventuate. You can't sway opinion here and you cant sway it in Toowong.

    The Viking Clap at the Raiders, is bigger than any "high profile" stick insect Sydney fudge ball throws up.

    Apart from a couple of cricketers, a boxer and a failed ex footy player I dont know what you're on about.
    Ask every Sydney kid if they have heard of Buddy Franklin and I think youll have a 95% success rate.

    I disagree.
    I think you would have a fairly high rate of Buddy recognition from Women as they all read Woman's Weekly and Buddy is very popular in that magazine as the bad boy, wacked out, side kick of Jacinta Campbell.
    But he would have relatively low recognition amongst sportsfans.

    classic movie Winners, haven't seen the Mummy staring Brendan Fraser(buddy for short) in ages. It'll probably get more people watching on TV in Sydney then the swans/GWS last weekend.
