Buddybet’s Buddy Bets: 1000th Goal Milestone

Buddy Franklin is set to kick his 1000th goal this weekend in the Swans’ line up against rivals GWS.

Will he, won’t he? We’re all on the edge of our seats.

For all the punters out there looking to get creative with this milestone, Buddybet offers endless ways to get amongst it.

Let’s dive in and look at just how obscure you can get with Buddybet’s Buddy bets (it’s like we’re made for this event). Here we go:

What quarter will he kick the 1000th?

This one is an entry-level Buddybet for those wanting to dip their toes into what Buddybet has to offer.

We’re tipping the 3rd quarter, but we all know if Buddy’s on a heater, it could be much earlier.

You can even guess the minute if you’re feeling cocky!

How long will it take a crowd member to reach Buddy after he scores the 1000th?

Now we’re talking. Time to stretch those creative legs, punters. The age-old tradition of crowds storming the field following a milestone goal is something we hang our hats on as Australians.

Gillion McLachlan has told the press the AFL is ‘powerless’ to stop the crowd flocking Buddy – so, we’re in for a real treat.

We think over-excited, well ‘hydrated’ supporters will run faster than Forrest Gump towards the star, reaching him in under one minute’s time.

What do you think?

What type of goal will Buddy’s 1000th be?

There are so many options here.

We’re visualising Buddy taking a clean sticky-mitts mark within the forward 50 and booting his 1000th from a set shot.

But maybe you’re feeling something more along the lines of a belter from outside 50, or even a snap from the boundary. Make sure to challenge your mate directly on the app so they can cop it when you win!

How will he celebrate?

Now, this is getting fun. We’re really hoping for a double cobra from Buddy following the goal, but it’s really anyone’s guess.

Here are a few options for those who are stuck:

  • The Johno Brown (One finger up)
  • The Mark Williams gun (Loading a shot gun)
  • What we like to call the ‘Humble Harry’ (Clapping your teammates for their assist)

Whatever you think the celebration will be, get over to the Buddybet app to make your predictions.

What will he say in his post-match interview?

We’re looking forward to the post-match interview. After big moments like these, they’re always as genuine as it gets.

We think Buddy will give a shout out to his wife Jesinta Franklin, as well as his teammates that helped get him across the line.

There’s really any number of ways this interview could go, and with emotions running high – your bet is as good as ours!

So, what are you waiting for? Get your Buddybet Buddy bets in now before the big game tomorrow night!
