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.

    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,

    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.

    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
