Centos 6.3 HAproxy not logging

I have configured rsyslog (CentOS 6.3) adding the -c 0 -r options and the line local2.* /var/log/haproxy.log and restarted rsyslog but all that happens is an haproxy.log gets created. It is never written to. Not quite sure how to troubleshoot this. Below is my haproxy.cfg file. Nothing else is configured to use local2 according to grepping for it in rsyslog.conf. My haproxy config is basically the default, just trying to get logging working first.

# Example configuration for a possible web application.  See the
# full configuration options online.

# Global settings
    # to have these messages end up in /var/log/haproxy.log you will
    # need to:
    # 1) configure syslog to accept network log events.  This is done
    #    by adding the '-r' option to the SYSLOGD_OPTIONS in
    #    /etc/sysconfig/syslog
    # 2) configure local2 events to go to the /var/log/haproxy.log
    #   file. A line like the following can be added to
    #   /etc/sysconfig/syslog
    #    local2.*                       /var/log/haproxy.log
    log local2 info

    chroot      /var/lib/haproxy
    pidfile     /var/run/
    maxconn     4000

I got the answer.. The logging traffic was all UDP, so I had to uncomment:
$UDPServerRun 514
