Might get more strength as he matures ! 

He will but sometimes players gain strength by bulking up in the gym and lose a little of tgeir speed and tank.

Its great to have him in patches in the midfield but the forward line is his true possie.

His uncanny sense of where the posts are, his ability to quickly turn and kick and his not going to ground or if he does he gets up quickly and acceleration make him the perfect small forward.

Just been waiting for my coffee in Horsham and fell into conversation with the happy indigenous gent beside me in a MFC tee shirt. He turned out to be the very proud father of Kysaiah having a pit sto

As an aside, I loved seeing Brad Green back in an MFC polo. The guy is a club legend, and (as everyone knows) he has endured seriously tragic and unwanted life experience in recent times - and he

If he keeps up this form he is going to start getting a lot of off the ball attention.  As we've seen with the likes of Oliver and Gawn, the umpires will pay free kicks from time to time but most of the time players are good at doing this without being seen.  Like Oliver, it will be important for Kozzie to change positions for the days when he's getting tagged out of the match.

Yes. I remember it happening to Flash. He never handled it well.

Has to go close to rising star this week i would reckon

He isn't eligible. He played too many games last year.

It's meaningless anyway.

I've never seen acceleration like Pickett's, he truly is a blur at times.  The clean pick-up at top speed, the agility, the snap off either foot.  Incredible!

What I would like to know is, how do you go to ground, gather the ball pop back up and snap a goal, without losing any speed whatsoever.

He was fine till Neitz retired.
After that he got no support from his teammates and the taggers did what they pleased.
Needed some protection but never got any.

Protecting each other is the most important factor. We get none from the umpires.

The moniker for him in our household is "Little Richard". All wild hair, glinting ivories, sassy moves and stage presence to burn. Twists and turns and hits the scoreboard rather like LR hit the keyboard. Some of the shots of him bear an uncanny resemblance.

He’s put the competition on notice now, so get ready for the tag and defenders roughing him up. I don’t know why but I can very easily see Nibbler being the first in to protect him. I think the boys should be ready to “fly the flag” against the cats. 

For that matter though Kozzie tackles as hard as anyone in the team so he will be up for it!

The Cats will definitely target him.  Thats 100% going to happen.

What they may not realize is that he has his uncle Byrons toughness and targeting him may only unleash a monster.

We need to be smart and disciplined. Geelong are devious s**thouse rats, will milk frees and draw 50 metre penalties.

Fly the flag in the contest but don't get involved in any silly stuff. If Kossie's marker is giving him a hard time then line him up in the tackle or contest

And/or keep hitting up / finding Spargo & Nibbler who might not be getting as much attention (assuming Nib isn't playing a run with role).

No doubt posted plenty of times elsewhere on these boards but it's been quite a while since i was so excited about a goal by a red & blue player, even though he's already kicked a number of beauties!  Play it again Mozzie!...

I loved all his touches at the weekend but particularly his third goal - absolutely classical small forward crumbing, which we have so sorely lacked: seeing the high ball coming in, evading his opponent, snapping up the expected spill from the pack .... BANG!!!❤️❤️

A thing of beauty Mono.  Would have the opp defenders & their coaches pretty bloody nervous i would think.

Looking at the clip again the thing I really love about it is he backed himself in 100% all the way. Trac was right around him, LJ was there as well but he put the burners on and took it upon himself. I felt last year he was a classic case of a young player trying to find his feet, sometimes getting caught in two minds on whether to give it off or take the shot. Now he's making the decision and there's no second guessing it. The Brayshaw goal you could say he might've found a way out of traffic but in the split second he had to make the call he made it and gave Gus a shot on goal.

Get out to the G on Sunday Dees fans, make some noise for Kozzie!

Very good point.  Seems like his decision making is on as well.

    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
