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

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 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.

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.  
 

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 YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
