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.

Well called.

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!

how dare u leave out aussie wonaeamirri ;)

Can I just say how awesome it was to see Kozzie starting in the middle against at the Saints. Having that speed and excitement in the middle of the ground helped create that first goal to Viney.

As soon as I saw him line up in the centre for the opening bounce against Freo I thought this is going to be a great move. He's obviously pinch hitting at the moment but we seem to use him for the opening bounce of most quarters before he moves forward. Gives us real x-factor around the ball to kick things off.

Interesting that Ratten said on 360 that they felt they'd got the game back on their terms and then a 10-15 period from Pickett turned the game.  Never comes down to one player but pretty high praise coming from the other side.

Interesting to read this. I was discussing the game with a mate yesterday (Dees supporter), and he said - ‘we were really up against it until Kossie turned the entire game in its head, single handedly’. 

This then caused me to reflect on Kossie’s contribution - I immediately thought, ‘yep, you’re spot on’.

Kossie turned this game for us - Ratten is absolutely on the money. And he’s a good bloke for acknowledging this.

He’s great but he didn’t turn the game. Our defence kick started a bunch or chains from the back half that led to ANB, Pickett and Sparrow goals - then they continued that into the second half occasionally screwing up and letting Steele to kick goals.

Love him but nah.

And the good thing was that the Saints had no one to stop Kossie in full flight!!!

I think to say “Kozzie turned the game” is a very simplistic way for putting it. But fact is we were DESPERATE for a goal and he managed to create it almost out of nothing. Those are team-lifting moments (which we have sourly lacked for a while).

Big call but Kossie could even be the best by the time he pulls stumps. If that's the case we may see a medallion or two around his neck at the lend of the season.

I can’t think of any team that has a player to stop him, he’s one out of the box Kysaiah.

The comparisons to Cyril Rioli have been made before but against the saints was the first time it was really evident to me. Took his goals brilliantly, great pressure, zip and spark. The air crackles when he gets the ball.

He's a game changer. Such a buzz to see him running around in the red and blue.

Its a shame he missed that goal when he hit the pack at lightning speed from out of nowhere.   Would have given him three brilliant goals.

I agree I think the game started to turn further up the field.  Which is why I found it interesting for the opposition coach to single out Kozzie as the one that changed it.  Maybe it's an easier message to send to supporters than we got outworked in the midfield / by the melbourne defenders.

Why did Petracca tell him to settle when he took that intercept mark in the 3rd and go back for a set shot? Hard to tell what was ahead on the tv but it looked as though he could've run in for a regulation shot at goal. Sometimes it's better to have a shot on the run instead of go back for a set shot as it's a more fluid action.

With Trac on track to be our dusty or danger....

Brown coming up fwd....May and Lever hitting their strides...if Kozzie keeps playing like this then things are going to be good.

 

My secret bet (not so secret now) is that no doubt someone on here will complain that he drifts in and out of games, only has single digit possessions thus we wasted our time in recruiting him...

Imagine writing off an 18 year old rookie in the garbage dump that was the covid 2020 season.  You wouldnt even write one off in a normal season unless you were a total [censored].

No complaints from me EO.

In the words of the great Jack Dyer, he’s the type of player who only needs 2 or 3 kicks to finish with 5 or 6 goals.

    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

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
