Thread: Meet Isaac Heeney

  1. #37
    Very surprised that 18 will not be used at all this season. Has a number that low not been claimed in a season before? (i.e. aware that gaps in numbers have happened but its usually in the high 30s or low 40s)

    Its a long shot but as clubs can lodge an international on its rookie list until the end on this week, could there be a possibility of an international rookie getting added to the playing roster? Just unusual that the number has been left vacant and the club did not really address that in the news item on the website.

    Maybe Mills wants to wear it next year?

    Although it's more likely that Shaw will retire and he will wear number 2

    Maybe noone wanted to be associated with Jesse's 18???? No, that can't be it. I love Jesse. He is a sweetie. All wrong for footy.

    Ryan Fitzgerald - Heath James - Andrew Ericksen - Jesse White - Jordan Lockyer.

    No wonder No. 18 is shunned.

    The question is have we ever had a decent No. 18 ?

    It would appear not.

    Probably the best I can remember is a bloke by the name of Paul Harrison.

    Scott Direen was a handy fringe player, and before him Wayne Carroll and Robert Dean, who I think actually topped our goalkicking for a season back in the 70's

    So in answer to your question 18 is not a reverred number in Sydney

    Probability says, it's time this number produced an elite, long serving, player.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT
