WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - KYSAIAH KROPINYERI PICKETT



Recommended Posts

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!

It's alright, Spargo will come to his aid 😈

"How Dons missed Pickett, McDonald draft heist

Joe Daniher’s initial trade request bombed out. But how different would life be for the Dons had they done the deal with Sydney?"

Article on HS about Dons potentially missing Kozzy and Logan McDonald due to their reluctance to trade Danniher to Sydney. Good to be on the other side of these articles for a change.

I feel a bit for Josh Mahoney having to spend his working life dealing with clubs who are in the "really crap" phase of their cycle. I think he's in for extended pain with the Bombers.

That was pure madness to hold on to Joe, he wanted out.

Do you consciously stop at the keyboard and write the word Essen(drug), or J(eelong), or is it automatic for you these days?😂

Sorry for thread derail...genuinely curious.

It’s no longer us in the trade revision gun, it’s the Bombers but like us with the Josh Kelly, May for Pick 6 and trading up for Kossie Picket calls, I still think the Bombers have done ok with Cox and Perkins.

Jones has shown a bit so far and it’s only very early days.

Very happy to have KP, he has tricks that you just can’t teach

And it will be a total duck dive bonanza from the  the Geelong wussys come the weekend.

The plan of course is like always. Use the poor buggers in yellow to exaggerate everything while playing on, snide hits behind play, and stretching the rules to the point where no rules apply to them.

What i want to see is Goodwin walk through their huddle at three quarter time or/and Ollie best on G...

Hehe. Selwood didn’t even bother to argue with the umpire on that one. Just sigh and put the hands up.

Kozzy generates a level of excitement when in the vicinity of the ball that I haven't felt since Jackovich. His ability to recover his footing, his creativity, his physics defying movement, finding the goals - scintillating stuff.

Jacko moved more like a well oiled slippery caboose though.... whereas Kozzie well you have to really watch him carefully as he is that quick and zippy.  If you don't you are likely to miss it as it all happens in the blink of an eye.

Mind you when you add 30 years plus a ****ty day with rain fogging glasses you weren't wearing back then, missing Kozzie is more likely.

I was one of the people a little suspect on how soon Kozzie would have an impact.

Extremely happy to put my hand up and acknowledge I was wrong - he's now keeping his feet, nailing chances and creating some real headaches for opposition teams. His work in traffic is first class

Watch the highlights and listen to the crowd when he swooped on that ball inside 50 and kicked the goal.

It felt like the days of Jeff Farmer or A jakovich lighting up the G' on a wet day.  The whole crowd knew something special was about to happen.

That was Kozzies first game on the MCG since he really arrived in round 2 and you can feel hes going to make the stadium his own.

    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. Were th

    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

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev
