Tom McCartin has revealed a doctor told him he was 99 per cent certain he would never play again during the much-publicised neck issue that threatened his career last season.
The emerging Sydney forward endured a panicked week where neurologists diagnosed a damaged artery in his neck from a head knock – only to eventually assess it as a childhood abnormality and give him the all-clear to return.

“The doctor was pretty brutal. I saw a bloke and he looked at the scan and he said: ‘that looks very similar to the lady I treated last week’,” McCartin told the Herald Sun.

“He said that would mean no contact sport. And if it doesn’t heal within 12 to 24 months I will put something in there to help blood flow but there still wouldn’t be any contact sport.

“It was a yes or no. He said he was 99 per cent sure I wouldn’t be able to play again. That was pretty scary. It was hard to comprehend at the time. He was pretty brutal and it was about a week between that and a scan which showed I was sweet.”

Eventually an angiogram would get to the root of McCartin’s issues after they flared during an intra-club collision with Luke Parker.

“Me and ‘Parksy’ just collided heads and I was a bit knocked up from it, I just didn’t recover from it and I ended up getting a scan that showed something,” he said.

“He felt a bit bad. He kept messaging me and calling me and saying, ‘what’s going on mate’.


“I went under general (anaesthetic) so I was still a bit out of it and it took me a while to come to. And (the doctor) just said, ‘you are sweet mate, it’s all good’. I was like, ‘what?’.

“I was pretty rattled to be honest. It took me a good day or two to really soak in.

“To being prepared to not play and being told I was sweet after being told I was 99 per cent not playing again, it took a while to get my mindset back to being ready to play. So it was a weird week but a good one.”

The youngest player in his draft year has already notched 35 games as a swingman with a massive tank and a fierce attack on the ball, settled into attack again this year after a stint down back last year.

Based in the beachside Maroubra, he is being denied his trio of swim-and-sauna sessions at Bondi’s Icebergs ocean pool right now.

As the Joe Daniher trade foundered last year he saw his name mentioned in Twitter dispatches as a possible trade.

Yet Sydney didn’t even consider it and for any Victorian clubs hopeful of enticing him home once his contract runs out in 2021, he says he “definitely” sees himself as a long-term Swan.

“I love it up here. A few boys’ names got thrown up on Twitter as part of the trade but I didn’t take too much notice of it. I am happy staying here so it’s a win-win,” he said.

“We got a good young group coming up and I don’t see myself anywhere else.”

Into a pool I presume. Those swing ropes are on every river in every state. They are always put in places that are safe to swing into. So for someone who has been doing this since about his 5th Birthday it is a walk in the park

On U27 using BigFooty.com mobile app
`i finally got around to viewing the Heeney footage. `WTF ? Nanny state. The guy backflips off a swing into water he knows is safe. Level of difficulty 3/10, danger 0.5/10, then he has a little wakeboard behind a tinny doing about 20kph. Level of difficulty 2/10, level of danger 0.25/10. These are things a little kid could do easily and safely (I did them as a little kid). There's heaps more danger just driving in a car. Some toss-pot commentators need to get a life.

When I saw the video I didn't think "oh jeez what an idiot" but rather "oh jeez some idiot will complain about this"

Can anybody find out when Swans/South games are on Fox Footy this weekend please.
not sure on times but as the list stands so far.. dunno if we have anymore games beyond these. probably the '05 semi and gf, maybe the gf the year after too if i had to guess. i'm still hoping to see the south melbourne games from '70 (v. collingwood) and '76 (v. geelong) that were on the initial list of 100 but it seems unlikely..

49 1994, Round 7: Sydney v St Kilda
48 1996, Preliminary Final: Sydney v Essendon

If Heeney would never try these things from an early time in his life he would not be the amazing courageous and skillful player that he is today. does he have to stop doing what comes natural because he would offend the armchair critics who have never amounted to anything nor have done anything worth noting.

Watching the '12 GF now. LRT was a beast with the physical pressure. AJ enormous. The umps had a big influence int he 3rd. Hale's bullshit free, while a minute later Pyke cops the same for no free. Mumford clear hold 15 out not paid yet Hawthorn get one for less on the wing that results in a goal. Not to mention the deliberate OOB paid against us in the second and the incorrect disposals against Hawthorn that were just waved off.

Just finished watching the Geelong game. Funny to see how many of them are now on staff - Harley, Gardiner, Stevie J (plus Playfair). We should have iced the game in the Q3, just couldn't kick straight. Hall had a hliarilously terrible night. Just nothing went right for him. A pleasure to watch club legends like ROK, Jude and Leo running around. Nicky D wasn't too bad in the first 3 quarters.The last ten minutes is still awesome.

Biggest injustice though was definitely Hanners and the NS
