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. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/KL22UxMGZG— Eric Bana (@EricBana67) September 10, 2019
R.I.P mate. Still can’t believe it. ❤️— David Armitage (@armo_20) September 9, 2019
At an event we hosted together earlier this year, Spud looked up at a photo of his daughters celebrating an Old Haileybury’s win.— Neroli Meadows (@Neroli_M_FOX) September 9, 2019
He spoke emotionally & so sweetly about coaching his girls - he said they were his happiest moments as a footy coach.
Gorgeous man. Sad day.
Danny Frawley described himself as a simple spud farmer who'd made his way in the big smoke.— Dan Andrews (@DanielAndrewsMP) September 9, 2019
Of course, he was so much more than that.
Captain. Coach. Best and fairest. All-Australian. Legend of the game.
Tonight, we're thinking of Danny’s family, friends and fans. pic.twitter.com/tGVhatNPK5

R.I.P mate. You gave me my first opportunity to play AFL. You took a punt on me, when no one else did. You were so supportive and always there for me and my family. I’m forever grateful. Condolences to Anita, Chelsea, Keeley and Danielle. Gone way to soon. R.I.P Spud pic.twitter.com/wHPMjfYqvl— Andrew Krakouer (@andrewkrakouer) September 9, 2019

I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Danny Frawley. I had the privilege to play against him, work with him in the media and thoroughly enjoyed his company on the All Australian Committee. Much loved person with a big heart. RIP GR8 Man. GJ. pic.twitter.com/JD5qSLSxrS— Glen Jakovich (@gjakovich27) September 9, 2019
Absolutely devastated about the tragic passing of Danny “Spud” Frawley. Growing up watching his tenacity & never give up attitude on the wet grounds at Ballarat was something I’ll never forget. Always a competitor but winning and losing didn’t change him. It defined him. RIP mate— Michael McGuane (@MickMCG34) September 9, 2019
How do we make sense of the shock passing of Danny Frawley. A respected competitor, a loyal and ever supportive assistant but more importantly a bloody good bloke and friend. Thoughts are with Anita and the girls.— Tony Shaw (@TonyShaw22) September 9, 2019
