IT TAKES a special kind of player to win fans' undying love at two clubs.

In our survey to find the people's footy favourites, conducted earlier this month on Franklin is revealed as both the third-most loved current player at Sydney. Despite defecting to the Swans in a $10m move, Buddy is also the third most-loved former player at Hawthorn.

Similarly, Chris Judd is the third most-loved ex-player at West Coast, where he earned a Norm Smith Medal and captained the Eagles to the flag. Judd also topped the voting for former players at Carlton, where he won a Brownlow Medal. 

Here we present the remaining survey results for Hawthorn through to the Western Bulldogs, as voted by you.
