Veteran Schulz took a light-hearted jab at the Power's new financial celebrity chairman David Koch, declaring he got a little "excited" after announcing the club's sponsorship deal with French car manufacturer Renault on Wednesday.
Franklin, 26, shocked Hawthorn last month when he elected to put off contract negotiations until the end of the season.
Koch, a financial guru and co-host of Channel 7's morning breakfast program Sunrise, threw Port's hat into the ring for the freakish Hawks talent, declaring the struggling club has "plenty of room" under their salary cap to snare the big star.
But, Schulz poured water on the suggestion the big goal-kicker could head to Alberton, saying Franklin and his contract status had little and less to do with the struggling Power.
"Kochie's a little bit excited at the moment about Renault and he seems to be trying to take over the world," Schulz teased.
"We love his enthusiasm, he's been fantastic for us, but to be perfectly honest, no one probably really expects Buddy to move, I expect him to play at Hawthorn.
"Kochie's a funny man and we love him for who he is, but to be perfectly honest (Franklin's contract status has) nothing to do with us at this time of the year."
Franklin's contract has already begun to dominate sporting headlines, with the superstar an obvious target for cashed-up expansion franchise Greater Western Sydney.
The AFL was forced to play down suggestions they would consider paying Franklin to join the Giants as an ambassador in a rugby league heartland.
