A Simple Trick for Remembering When To Use Who vs. Whom

A Simple Trick for Remembering When To Use Who vs. Whom In casual messages with friends or water cooler conversations with colleagues, it might not seem particularly important to use perfect grammar.

But his most vicious comments were left for those that tried to touch up their teeth. This is where Spud figures it out. Garry reckons Spud 's criticism of Channel 9's Tony "Chompers" Jones has been hiding a subplot he never predicted. Spud can now officially be referred to as Chomp Frawley ! "Bullshit!"

Danny ' Spud ' Frawley played 204 games for St Kilda and is a prominent media personality, currently working as part of the Triple M and Fox Footy broadcast Danny worked previously with the Richmond Football Club as senior coach in the early 2000s and now holds a coaching role at the St Kilda Saints.

He was only ever Spud.

Danny Frawley was a potato farmer's son who became a legend of the St Kilda Football Club and a loved son of football.

He was a player, coach, football administrator, commentator, analyst and jester. He was as happy taking the game seriously as he was making light of it, and himself.

Danny Frawley: Football world mourns a fierce competitor and vulnerable soul

Danny Frawley: Football world mourns a fierce competitor and vulnerable soul Frawley had spoken candidly about his battle with mental health over many years. In recent weeks he confided in friends and family that his marriage was over and personal finances were under severe strain. His death comes as an immense shock to the football community.

The son of seven generations of Irish potato farmers from Bungaree outside Ballarat, he was the nephew of Des Tuddenham, the former Collingwood champion.

Frawley went to St Patrick's College in Ballarat, but it was at sport that he excelled, not academics.

He began his football career as a forward, but found his place as a tough, strong, hard-running key defender.

The much-loved No.2 played 240 games for St Kilda across 12 seasons, including nine as captain. He won the club's best and fairest in 1988 and played 11 games for Victoria in State of Origin.

These numbers do not define him as a player. In that, he was perhaps better defined by his efforts on one of the greatest players ever – Gary Ablett snr.

Frawley's passion endeared him to all in footy

Frawley's passion endeared him to all in footy Danny Frawley was one of the game's most enduringly endearing characters. Few people within the AFL community knew more people, or were more known, than ???Spud'.

Zinedine has four sons who are all a bit handy, which should come as little surprise. And all four started their youth careers with Real Madrid. Following in the footsteps of a successful footballing father is hard enough for most , but being the son of Paolo Maldini must be doubly difficult.

Ablett and his former teammate Tony Lockett were the most explosive players Frawley played on. It was with his friend and teammate Lockett that Frawley shared his strongest football memory, the drought-breaking second elimination final against Geelong in 1991.

"For two lads from the bush who grew up together to lead the side out for the club's first final in 18 years is something I'll never forget," Frawley said at the time.

When he retired from playing, Frawley reflected on his career to this newspaper and said he rated Jason Dunstall – the man he would go on to forge a media partnership with in a light-hearted TV show, Fox Footy's The Bounce, and on Triple M radio – as his most difficult opponent.

After football, Frawley became an assistant coach to Tony Shaw at Collingwood, before becoming senior coach at Richmond from 2000 to 2004.

Saints mourn Frawley at club's AFL awards

Saints mourn Frawley at club's AFL awards St Kilda's annual best and fairest dinner has opened with an emotional tribute to club great Danny Frawley, who died tragically on Monday in a car crash. Roberts raised a toast to Frawley, who died the day after his 56th birthday, and there was also a video tribute. Loewe and Harvey were choked with emotion as they gave their speeches. "He was one of my best mates and he will always be my hero," Loewe said. The Saints great added that when he was asked to speak about Frawley, he was still in shock and had to think about it.

He coached as he played, honestly and with his heart on his sleeve. He had success as a coach at Richmond, in his first years narrowly missing the finals – finishing ninth – and in his second season he took the Tigers to a preliminary final against Brisbane, who would go on to win the flag.

They lost that day, but it proved to be the best Richmond effort in finals for more than a decade, until their drought-breaking premiership in 2017.

After that high-water mark of 2001, the Tigers slumped and two years later fell to 16th, then bottom of the ladder, and won the wooden spoon.

A passionate man leading a passionate club led to conflict at times. Frawley reacted to one idiotic Richmond fan who spat at him.

In a more volatile – and pathetic – time in Richmond's history, one member notably hired a truck to dump chicken manure at the doorstep of the club at Punt Rd. Frawley announced mid-season that he would resign at the end of the year and in a move he later regretted, he coached out the 2004 season while Richmond interviewed and then announced his replacement, Terry Wallace.

After Richmond, he moved into media roles and in 2008 returned to coaching in a part-time role working at Hawthorn – a club his nephew James, nicknamed Chip after his uncle Spud, would later play in a premiership with.

For several years, Frawley served in football administration as chief executive of the AFL Coaches Association and returned to coaching part-time with St Kilda as a specialist defensive coach at the end of 2014.

A big personality, he embraced the State Of Origin concept and in June 2006 coached a winning Victorian State of Origin side in the E.J. Whitten Legends match.

Frawley famously took football legend Ted Whitten around the Victorian rooms before the 1995 State of Origin clash at the MCG, to greet the players one by one, where they all said hello and hugged Whitten. On an emotional day, Whitten, who was almost blind, was also driven around the MCG with the support of his son, to the appreciation of a 60,000-strong crowd. It was to be Whitten's final lap, as he passed away from prostate cancer just months later.

Frawley said of that day: "I'll never forget him whispering in my ear before he left. He just said, 'Look, I really appreciate what you've done for me today. I'll never forget it.' It was one of those days you're glad you're around, and one of the reasons you play footy."

Frawley was married to Anita and had three daughters, Danielle, Chelsea and Keeley.

In recent years Frawley spoke about the depression that had consumed him for periods of his life and the nervous breakdown he suffered in 2014.

Sunday was his 56th birthday.
