Franklin also had the likes of Hodge, Lewis and Mitchell feeding him the ball. You know those guys that have won 4 premiership medals.
He is also getting the ball fed to him now by Luke Parker and Sydney’s COLA fed midfield academy. (Imagine if Joe Dan was getting that kind of supply?!)
I’m not saying Franklin is a dud but I doubt he would be dominating at say Brisbane or North.
He has been very fortunate to play for very good sides with very good coaches.
Look what happened to Lloyd (who kicked two 100 goal seasons something that Franklin hasn’t done.) when he was in a bogus side with a bogus coach (Knights).
