What Longmire said above is probably true. I haven't totally written Buddy off. He is a champ and will be a proud @@@@.
I think he'll go down swinging (not literally) and may surprise us yet with a few decent hauls. I think we'll miss him when
he's gone. No need to be so harsh on him. Players are a long time retired, I can see why they don't want to let go. It's
not just about money (tho' money affirms to people that they are still contenders), the bloke will like the life of being
a footballer.
