    I was wondering why I hadn't heard a word from Eddie after the game until I read he is in Dubai. It has been funny seeing how many people in the media have brought up Eddie when discussing Heeney and making fun of what his reaction will be!
    They said on Talking Footy last night that Fat Eddie was going to let fly in a new round of abusive lobbying against the academies upon his return.

    That would be, 'Congratulations Tahini'! , with acknowledgement to Untamed Shark.

    Pretty impressive for a team that has been in the top 4 since 2012 to have 4 Rising Star nominees - Mitchell, Cunningham, Lloyd and now Heeney.

    Wouldn't have thought that Geelong, Hawthorn or Freo would have more than 1 or 2

    Eddie will now work on Gil the dill to slap an arbitary National Draft ban on us this year just so we don't get Mills as well.

    Gil's simple explanation will be "they can't have all the guns from their zone"

    I do like how Heeney plays the politics in his interviews always mentioning the academy saved him from the NRL!

    Heeney is the poster boy for the Academy system that we need. He was never going to be an AFL player without the academy - that is where it is exceptionally hard for boneheads like Eddie to argue that we are 'hiding away talent' or 'rorting the draft', as without it he would never be there in the first place.

    I hope Heeney has a ripper against the Pies in Rd 20 - 20 possessions, a few goals and a few assists to Buddy should be almost enough to make Eddie explode!

    Valuable as he is proving to be in the forward line - he and Buddy have quite something going on together - I can't wait until he makes a move into the midfield on a permanent basis. Some of his hand-offs to team mates have been sublime, and he seems very clean below the knees as well as overhead.
    100% effective disposals.
    Every disposal hit a target.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    with Five goal assists.......works for me. He's a good kid and its a pleasure to watch him play. Who would have linked Buddy and Isaac together as natural foils. Imeantersay!

    I rather thought it would be Milky, but I am finding TaHeeney very liquid.....

    Have had the pleasure of seeing him in action twice, it is something to behold. Very special.

    And I see the marketing people are wasting no time

    This was from a Herald Sun columnist

    ON THE BLOCK: Isaac Heeney, who was nominated for the Rising Star one week ago, was subbed out of Sydney’s clash with Fremantle. Coach John Longmire said the decision was purely tactical as he had struggled to adapt to the big game situation, only accumulating three disposals and one tackle. As much as the Swans would love to expose him as much as possible, they’ll also be cautious of burning him out too early in the season. - end

    Was always going to be tough against Freo maybe he will find it easier against the dogs if he plays as they are a younger side - Freo game will be a good lesson for him moving forward after all the hype and hopefully he gets a chance to redeem himself this week maybe as the sub as it would appear that he is not injured. Good to see the coach calling it straight with young stars as well as older stars.
