Im on board with K.K.P exactly what the doctor ordered.

Being crying out for a quality small forward for years.

He's going to be a beauty.

 

Both Luke and Kozzie plus Harley will  all be fan favourites.

in love with LJ and Kozzie already so much C factor

Haven’t changed my favourite players on here for a few years. Just did an addition.
I’m having visions of Cyril in attack and Byron in defence. Excuse me for a moment. I’ll be back in a little while.

So I guess we can look at this two ways. 

If you go solely on the value of the pick and who we could have picked up then you have to be pretty annoyed that we overlooked a bunch of seriously talented players who will probably turn out to be a lot better. 

If you look at it as part of the whole draft/trade period and the package we have gotten as a whole then we've filled our need for running wingers, picked up a talented small forward to replace Garlett and a 2m forward/ruck to develop who will probably see game time next year.  Plus an option on Bennell and Brown if they look good in training.  You'd have to call that a good haul. 

I just hope we can all keep looking at it this way when Kemp is accepting his Brownlow... 

As Maxy holds the Cup aloft and Luke wins the Normie!!

Wow, just gotta pinch myself again.   We now have an electrifying small indigenous forward in the mold of Jeff Farmer/Cyril Rioli.

Been waiting 20 years for this.

If he makes the grade he will bring the kind of excitement that the likes of Jurrah, Farmer and my namesake did.      So pumped.

Aaron Davey says hi..

 

so so we went after Jamie Elliot and ended up with Pickett. That's a great get IMO. And we save around $700k a year...

And heres Saty to ruin the positive vibes in his thread

It's Saty being realistic, the hyperbole about new players staggers me sometimes

And the short memories

We had an Indigenous small forward for the last couple of years, his name was Jeff Garlett, agreed his last year was poor, but previous to that he was a valued member of the forward line

And for somebody to say 20 years is laughable and also disrespectful to Aaron Davey

What you see is the highlights of a young guy playing, but not at AFL level, let's wait and see how he handles the step up before we start gushing about him

I am really pleased we drafted him but I ain't gonna put him on a pedestal before I even see him train

It was me who said 20 years.  We havent had a great small forward since Farmer.

Davey was not a small forward except for his first few  seasons.....  played most of his career on the wing.

Welcome to the Dees Kozzie! Can’t wait to see him light up the G, an injection of excitement and x-factor is exactly what we need. We can argue the merits of picking him at 10 until the cows come home but ultimately we wanted him and I’m glad he’s pulling on the Red and Blue!

Send him to live with Nev. Will not get a better education on how to be a top athlete/person anywhere else.

Reminds me a little bit of Aussie in his breakout year, but a few less turtles for dinner.

Has goal sense too it seems. You can't teach that and none of our forwards currently have that.

Sorry would have to disagree with that one Dr.  - IMHO all of Hannan, Fritta, Melksham, Trac, AVB (if he comes good) and possibly even I'd say T Mac have pretty decent goal sense.

That goal that Oliver snapped from the boundary was it last year or a few back shows that he has it too.

I do like the look of KKP though.

I may be wrong, but I believe he is related to Nev Jetta.  So he may end up living with him to begin with anyway.

Absolutely ripping pick, though.  He may take time to build his tank and find some consistency, but he will light up the G on a regular basis when he gets a run in the senior side.  I can't wait.

I’m sure this has been mentioned somewhere in the thread, but I haven’t seen it - apologies in advance.

The club has footage of his agility testing on the website.

Anyone know where he actually ranked in the agility testing: 1. relative to the other draft attendees this year, and 2. relative to the elite measures for draftees including compared with other small forwards such as Charlie Cameron?

Agility testing or not, the highlight clips show all you need to see.

You see all the other attributes previously mentioned including agility.

I was looking that up yesterday, and Kozzie wasnt in the top 10 for agility.

And Luke Jackson wasn't in the top 10 for standing or running jump.

Those tests are irrelevant anyway.

Yeah we should definitely go after blokes like Sam Blease who had a fantastic burst of speed and measures well.

Unlike silly Hawthorn who took that Sam Mitchell guy who couldn't test well in anything and had to play VFL.

I get that for every 1 Sam Mitchell there is 100 that don't make it but it's not all about testing. There is 100's of examples of this

Interesting hearing Brendan McCartney in his draft-related article today talking about things he looks for in players, wondered if this may potentially relate to how we see Pickett:

For different reasons, neither Bontempelli nor Oliver was talked up as a top pick midway through his draft year.
“Bonti” wasn’t always in the game, but when he was you just thought “wow”.

I think this is the logic recruiters use.

Someone like ANB springs to mind. He's always around the contest with his elite running, but is never doing anything WOW


Sadly I think I agree.
I recall holding great hope for ANB as his SA team won the champs and he was a consistent key component within that side, always performing well without dominating, but getting his side over the line.
I had hope he'd provide a similar non-spectacular influence on the success of our side, but that hope is fading.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
