AFL community reflects on Frawley

AFL COMMUNITY PAYS TRIBUTE TO ST KILDA LEGEND DANNY FRAWLEY:

* “He fought the good fight but it really got him down. And you work so hard in your life and he’s got such a beautiful family and in the end I suspect – I don’t know for sure, no-one does – I just feel as though things bubbled over in his life.” – Former Victorian premier, Hawthorn president and Beyond Blue founder Jeff Kennett on Channel 7

* “I’m in shock, as I just heard the sad and tragic news about my friend Spud’s passing. RIP mate, just not fair and gone to (sic) soon.” – Australian cricket legend Shane Warne on Instagram

* “I will miss you Spud. A giant of our club. A loyal legend through some of the Saints toughest days. A mate to so many. Thanks for all the amazing stories. My heart goes out to the Frawley family.” – Actor Eric Bana on Twitter

* “He just wanted to be loved, and needed, and sometimes just some people you can give all the love you want but it’s not enough, mate. I think that was the thing for Spud.” – Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley on SEN radio

* “A man that cared about others more than he cared about himself in some ways. It’s a real tragedy that he’s not with us any longer – Brisbane coach Chris Fagan

* “No matter how hard Danny was finding things, he always had a way of making it about the other which is an admirable way to live your life.” – Geelong coach Chris Scott

* “He’s a very energetic man and whenever you were in the room with him, you felt good and you were laughing — and that’s a true reflection of him.” – Former Saint Brendon Goddard on Fox Sports News
