THANKS for the memories, Buddy.
With Lance Franklin electing to make the Harbour City his new football home, it is unlikely Launceston's football audience will ever see one of the AFL's most prodigious talents in action again.
Expect the AFL, at least in the early days of Franklin's time of being a Swan, to schedule any Hawthorn v Sydney matches in Melbourne to maximise crowd figures, meaning the Swans are unlikely to add to their one home and away game at Aurora Stadium.
But he sure leaves us with some moments we'll never forget.
It was at this ground that he gave the football world the first signs of what was to come and where he would put on the greatest show in his 182 games in the brown and gold.
Franklin played his first game in Launceston in round 7, 2005, as an 18-year-old wearing the number 38 jumper.
He collected just the six kicks and two marks, with the minimal scoreboard contribution of 0.1.
He would go on to play another 26 games at Tasmania's home of AFL, and in that time he would kick 94.49 while averaging 16 touches and five marks a game.
Hawthorn would win 20 of those 27 games that Buddy took part in.
It was on Sunday, June 18, 2006, that Franklin first showed the footy world how special he could be.
The next year was a quiet one, with eight goals in three games highlighted by a five-goal haul against Brisbane in round 19.
But 2008 was magical. Out of Franklin's 113 goals that season, 23 were kicked at Aurora, with three bags of six and one bag of five.
The rollercoaster that was Franklin saw him manage just seven majors in Launceston in 2009, and was kept scoreless by St Kilda in round 19.
In 2010, he kicked bags of 5.2 and 5.1 against North Melbourne and Fremantle, and then managed 6.2 against West Coast in round 4, 2011.
Then there was 2012.
Franklin had managed just one goal in his two games at the venue heading into the round 10 match against North Melbourne, and did not look like troubling the scorers early in that match.
What followed was something that was simply amazing.
He disposed of several Kangaroo defenders on his way to a career-best haul of 13.4, while collecting 23 disposals and 11 marks.
His final year as a Hawk saw him boot 10 goals in his three games, with bags of four against Fremantle and Brisbane.
But his work in front of the sticks were just some of the memories we'll remember of Franklin in Launceston.
There was the time when Zac Dawson (in his St Kilda days) knocked out some of his front teeth, and times he pushed the rules, such as his report and suspension for his bump on Maverick Weller in 2011.
But it will be the goals, the strut and the celebration that we will remember from Buddy's time in Launceston.
