Watching Kozzy play over the past few weeks, I think he might have grown a few centimetres since he came to the club. Was recruited at 171cm but looks taller than Spargo who is supposed to be 174cm. Anyone think the same?

"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. 

This is rubbish. Kozzie was slated to go in the mid-20s. Clubs were surprised we went so early for him

Agree @jnrmac, utter bs. They just missed out on Kozzie the same way they just missed out on Jack Viney.

AFL media doing their absolute best to shame Kozzie over practically nothing right now. 

I'm not even mad though, just basking in the glory of a relevant Melbourne Football Club.

It’s a joke. He stood up against the cheap shots that the Tigers pulled when losing.  Tigers liked a few short elbows and punches in the clinches or after a contest.   Kozzzy does not take that [censored]. That’s the story.

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

Cox will be a gun. I'd target him.

And as for Jack Riewldt telling Kozzie what to do, that really made me angry. Im Glad Jack Viney grabbed him and told him where to go. 

Im so sick of Richmond and the afl media. They are at an all time low.

I've had a lot of respect for J. Reiwoldt in the past he's been a great player for many years but I found his comments on Kozzie to be really disappointing. 

Firstly that he thinks that Kozzie "(should be) better than that".  Really? Did he say that to Nankervis after he was constantly battering Max all night?  Or to Lynch? After any of his many indiscretions?

Secondly he thinks that Kozzie could be as good as Cyril Rioli. Low ceiling for Koz in my opinion and a pretty lazy comment to compare him to the first indigenous player the can think of, how about broadening your horizons Jack? Koz could be the next..

Not all. On SEN.

Former Western Bulldogs captain Bob Murphy “absolutely loved” Pickett's aggression as the Demons announced themselves a premiership contender. 

“This is the young upstart, this is a team that is discovering who they are and what they might be, taking on the champs and not being overawed, and getting in their face, and being a little bit cocky, and being a little bit arrogant,” Murphy told SEN’s Bob and Andy. 

“That’s going to upset a lot of people, Melbourne have been in the doldrums for a long, long time, they’re trying to change who they are. 

“I absolutely loved it.”

Funny, for a long time I thought Tom Lynch was ‘probably better than that’. Turns out I was wrong.

Hes an absolute [censored].

Kossie is just incredible. The movements he makes. Ive seen players try to tag him and suddenly hes behind them by the time they turn around hes gone with the ball.

Normally its other clubs that get these sorts of players like an Essendon or West Coast and we just have to sit and watch and groan. But not this time. Hes all ours and hes staying.

Cant wait for the next installment.

High five to Robert Murphy. Thats great. 

And bonus is that it makes Kane Cornes and Jack Riewoldt look like a couple of whining Karens.  (Apologies to anyone named Karen reading this).

Riewldt (whatever his name is?) is such a total [censored].  Even if that's what he told Kossie on the field, no need to go big noting himself like some high and mighty on Slobbo's show about the issue.  Should have stayed on the field.  Whatever genuine benifit there might have been by this 'elder statesman' type advice on the field was just undone by his somewhat belittling blabbing in the media.

Its typical middle class Australian media mentality looking to try and do some daisy cutting and find the negatives that surly must be there, even when they arent, to a prodigious young new talent.

Vomit.

Wait so are they getting upset about how Kozzie got taken high and then decided to point to the scoreboard after he kicked the goal? I’d say that’s the simplest cheeky way of giving a little back, it’s not aggressive or anything, it was the spooky tigers who decided to go on with it afterwards. 

Reiwoldt’s done plenty worse than that.

Interesting to note that there has been very little comment this week about the behaviours of Reiwoldt, Nankervis or Lynch across the game - 'mongrel' is more refined than their respective 'after the event' behaviours. It seems as though the AFL, the umpires and the media can allow/condone retribution displayed by certain clubs' teams, yet not for others. As the Demons improve, it is most evident that our 'best' are 'targets' to be openly, deservedly disrespected.

I disagree with your premise @Deemania since 56.

We know that fantastic players, and fantastic teams will always be feted on or given more leniency from the media, or umpires.

Actually, it happens in all walks of life.

It's not just, or right, and it happens.

Thus, as we improve with our consistency in winning - it will come our way as well.

No one has criticised the aggressor who was in yellow and black, playing in his 4th game. Maybe Rhyan Mansell needs to ‘mature’ and ‘show respect’...

I do think that race plays a part in this reaction from the media; Toby Greene can act like an arrogant [censored] and it adds flavour to the game; but Lindsay Thomas is a ‘cheater’ and Kozi Pickett is getting ahead of himself and needs to know his place...

Some of you would roll your eyes at that think of all of St Kilda’s lippy smalls - they are lauded (not now obviously coz they are crap).

I am aware that the forgotten Mansell is indigenous.

Riewoldt pretending to play the role of concerned citizen and mentor, but he’s actually aiming to diminish Kossie’s edge in my opinion. Ducks and drakes.

Shades of Jeff Farmer at Waverley with his first goal today, only Kozzie decided to involve half the team. [censored] electrifying.

Just want to put my hand up and say I never thought he'd come on so quickly or demonstrate a tank like he has.

Anyone else?

I was very impressed with his draft video, but all the same his growth has been exponential.

    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

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs
