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.

 

I don't like the carry on afterwards that players do these days. Bit of a cheap shot and disrespectful.

Hmm i don't like the cheap shots that you speak of, but if a good tackle is laid, no harm in getting under their skin and letting them know.   Kossie does it well.   Guys like VDB and Lynch not so much.

I don't like it when other players get in to pat them on the head etc when they were not even involved in the play.   It is all part of the game though, with bunch of alphas trying to prove they are superior and maybe putting someone off their game.

Happens in every sport, at every level of it, women and males alike.

as amazing as those two tackles were.. i am surprised not more AFL players smash and drive players like this. i grew up watching league and it just seems like the mindset is a lot different. with the threat of actually being hurt/sore from a tackle, teams would be much less confident leaving their D50 with players like Pickett around. but there should be MORE OF IT!!!

In my day didn't have to bother doing stuff after the play, the bloody umpire (sing) used to allow anything except fist throwing melees involving more than a few players, so you didn't have to bother about the rag doll [censored] footing...

Many of us die-hard Dees believe that we could have struck gold with Kozzie.  Wouldn't it be amazing if he announced his 'arrival' to the wider football community against the Saints on Saturday night?  Against Freo he looked to me to be primed and ready to go.  Just a gut feeling that tomorrow night he might take centre stage.

Ah, for sure. Guess my thoughts are that you can play hard and show you mean business without the carry on afterwards.

Lovely to see the forward pressure from our two smalls, but bloody hell this kid has some rare skills.

Will tear a game to pieces before too long and all of the young supporters will understand how it felt to have Jeff Farmer running around the forward 50.

 Great excitement brought by Kozzy tonight but if anyone who never saw Jeff Farmer play, just look at Liam Ryan, he reminds me of Jeff every time i watch him, he's the exact same player and my favorite from any other club. Dynamite.

Jeez he looks the goods, I don’t like to go prematurely on calling player but he could well be a star in the making for us. Just needs to have a touch more composure, could’ve (should’ve) had 2 more today.

If Bruce Macavaney was still commentating he would be having orgasms over Kozzie

We've had some dead-set ripping indigenous small forwards in my time supporting the club (Jeff Farmer, Aaron Davey, Jeff Garlett). After watching Kozzie on the weekend,  I think we've got another beauty on our hands.

He will be all the better for a regular cache of games this year, and a more consistent schedule. Give him a couple more years then look out!

Kysaiah Kropinyeri Pickett WWT Eagles/South Australia | Small Forward
02/06/2001 | 170cm | 68kg

Arguably the most naturally gifted player in the draft, the nephew of Port Adelaide and North Melbourne premiership player Byron, is small in stature but big on X-factor and his ability to do the impossible. He is clean at ground level, has high-level goal sense, and despite being so lightly built, was able to force his way into the Woodville-West Torrens League side courtesy of a massive six-goal game against North Adelaide in the first round of the SANFL Reserves competition. Adds an extra dimension to the South Australian forward line and will be one that could light up the big stage over the next month.

Have to give Oliisik his props here.

Thank you Kozzie for all the excitement and hope you have bought to me over the last week.

Because of you I will drive 3 hours this weekend.to watch you create havoc for gws.

I wonder how you will be with  brown isolated up fwd?????????

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
