Which community/tribe/small town is he from? Club website says WA yet everywhere else is SA. I imagine hes from remote WA somewhere and moved to SA to play footy this year.

He is based in SA full time. Moved there from WA when he was a kid.

Another blunder from our very own Ben Gibson..

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, perhaps.

I'd just be interested to see the stats if anyone has them.

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.

What you're describing is exactly what ANB was to us in 2018. He was a big, non-spectacular part of our success with a number of games hitting the exact numbers you'd be looking for out of your high half forward:

Rd 2 - 21d 1g
Rd 4 - 22d 1g 6t
Rd 8 - 23d 2.2g
Rd 9 - 17 d 4g 5t
Rd 10 - 23d 3g 6t
Rd 11 - 25d 1.2g 5t
Rd 12 - 19d 1.1g 6t
Rd 17 - 17d 2g 5t
Rd 19 - 22d 1.1g 12t
Rd 20 - 22d 2g
EF v Cats - 20d 1.3g 9t (and if you rewatch this game, he brought the heat very early and was key to our big 1st Q)

For the year he kicked 27.19, averaging 1.1 goals a game at 17 disposals and 4.7 tackles. 
For an undersized roaming HFF, that is high output.

Does he make perfect decisions? Far from it, but his ability to move from contest to contest and use his endurance to get goal scoring opportunities is unmatched in our side. Like many others, his demise in '19 was another reason we couldn't replicate our 2018 form. 
 

He needs to bring this form again and make it consistent over a period of years, but I do not understand the constant criticism of him and why people cannot see his value.

I think opposition sides worked him out, and realised if they apply serious pressure to him he can't absorb, coughs it up.

With time, I think he'll settle and learn to cope with the pressure without panicking, but I'm not confident he'll be afforded the time to figure it out - many aren't.

The hope is fading, but not gone.

He wasn’t afraid to talk the boy up. Said he has a fantastic attitude. 

anyway I left him talking to Frank Giampolo (ex MFC footballer). 
 

Really looking forward to seeing this kid play 

And this is why Demonland has such great value. A fan discussion and story forum at its best. Thanks Bimbo.

An honest trier from the 1970s, played back pocket at times but struggled with injury and pace. Bad knees from what I can remember. Tried to come back under Big Carl but too much knee damage. 

Last saw him in Horsham running the White Hart Hotel. Nice pub with reasonable food. Lovely bloke, happy to talk footy and still a diehard Dees supporter.

Footy jumpers are best worn by kids 5-16. Sorry Picket.

Good luck with that. I think Pert has issued instructions to cut costs. You need to pay extra for your choice of player on the card and the choices are limited to around 6 players.

You’re right....just spoke with the club regarding other matters with my membership, asked about pictures and was told only six we’re on offer. Honestly how much of a savings would it actually be.....

Kozzie is a Noongar man as is Harley Bennell. 

There have been and are many AFL players are Noongar men.  A few notables:  Polly Farmer, Buddy, Barry Cable, Nicky Winmar, Garlett, Matera,  Bennell, Jetta, Pickett, Krakouer, Burgoyne, Ryder and the list goes on.

Lots of people for young Kozzy to draw inspiration from.

Absolutely delighted to have Kozzy on board. Fantastic to see Brad Green hand him the jumper and cant wait to see Aaron Davey hand him his famous 36.

Probably been mentioned above but did you see the look on Goody's face when Kozzy was being interviewed, he loves him which is a great sign.

    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
