Had  a big impact in his first ever game despite only having 6 possession.  Such is the importance of forward pressure.

Scary to think how good he will be in a few years.  You can see he has the drive and passion.  Hes hard as nails too.    And nevermind his freakish skills.

How many goal and mark of the year contenders will this kid have over his career?  I say many.

This is why Cyril was such an exciting player. He would only win the ball 10-15 times during the game, but it's his frenetic and chaos tackling pressure that would put the fear into opposition players.

Pickett is exactly that player. This could be another bargain Clayton Oliver like pick from Taylor.

Noticed kid-Pickett was often in good position on the weekend but hardly ever called for the ball, sometimes with his head down or looking in another direction. Was overlooked on a couple of occasions as well (Tomald) despite being the obvious option. 

If he nailed that second shot I suspect he would have popped up for one or two more. Club needs to find a way to jack up his confidence pronto, and let his natural mojo come to the fore. I have no idea what the immediate solution might be. 

You can offer someone licence but it doesn't mean they will grab it. Perhaps if we gave him the simple target of taking x number of shots per match or x number of runs? - the threat of an odd sidestep can disrupt the defence even without kicking for goal.

He's a super quiet and shy kid, so hopefully as he matures he comes out of his shell a bit. Reminds me of young Aaron Davey, who was very quiet but came out of his shell and became a leader towards the end of his career. 

I agree if he'd kicked the second one, I think we would've seen his confidence grow and he probably would've got on the end of a few more.

That training excercise on the sand where his teammates helped him get through it, should be invaluable for his confidence 

He needs to watch it a few times

His Teammates want him out there, as long as he is hungry to contribute

Can you point me to where I can see that SWYL?  Keen to have a look

Go to 7:25 to see the Velvet Sledgehammer and Damian Barrett raving about Kozzie.    The impact he had with just 12 disposals was phenomenal.

Serious serious talent is Kozzie.

Said right from the start he is as close to Jeff Farmer as I think I've seen. Has a bit of Eddie Betts in him as well.

Remember when a few on here said we made the wrong call picking Pickett ahead of Weightman after his first game 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ can someone please tag those people on here.

Hes not the right selection. Mistake.  Georgiades is making him look silly 

No E Kossie was and IS the right selection for MFC 

We needed a small classy forward to crumb the ball and we have now got a Farmer/ Betts/Cyril/DAvey clone who is only a boy really.

Harder to recruit Kossies than Georgiadis and get it right.

We have a very special talent anX factor and highly skilled player fir hopefully a decade to contribute ultimate success for our Club.

Snd Kossie creates excitement for us and fear for the opposition!

BTW I actually rate Gorgiadis but have no doubt that Kossie is the right No 10 we picked.

Thank you Jason Taylor.

Loved his tackling all day and his bad [censored] attitude gave every person he tackled a little push shove and rough up great to see

His forward line pressure is fantastic

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
