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.

I was not expecting him to get as good a tank as he has so quickly. He's come a long way since episode 3 of To Hell and Back where his teammates helped him complete a (gruelling) exercise on the beach.

He’s more Kosi Pickett rather than Cyril Rioli

His aerobic fitness is fantastic and his repeat efforts at contests superb

Yesterday was the first time I’ve seen him live. His second/third and fourth efforts are exceptional and really demonstrate his fitness improvement.

His balance (except for one notable slip) is out of this world.

His goal in the third qtr was started just in front of me with the first of his 3 possessions in the chain. Once he had the ball and was running at goal you didn’t doubt he’d finish too. Love watching him play.

Can’t believe the improvement in 12 months. I must admit when I first saw him he would fumble, had no endurance and I wasn’t sure about him. How wrong was I. What a player we have.

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.

Damn right, ignore what Riewoldt says; promoting a FU mentality is no bad thing.

This kid is going to be so much better than I ever imagined.

Kudos to Jason and his team.

3 picks for 3 direct hits and great hits at that.

This season  14 goals in 7 games

What about the assists? He is getting them and giving them.

I think it's conceivable we don't win yesterday without him. The impact he's having is absolutely phenomenal. I reckon he'll be AA. His field kicking is underrated too, he just doesn't miss a target. 

And honestly, at the time I really didn't understand why Goody and co were all smug and giddy in that 2019 draft video. Yes he looked promising and had a good highlights reel but we were essentially reaching for a guy that was expected to go in the second round and making out like they'd won the lottery. They knew.

Jason Taylor would be sleeping well at night that is for sure. He has gone against the grain on some high picks and come out a star. 

Both considered risky at the time - Interesting to know what he would rate as a better pick - Kozzie at 12 or Oliver at 4?

Last season he had 6 goal assists in 14 games,

This season he already has 7 in 7 games.

His output has basically doubled or tripled everywhere.. in fact his goals have quadrupled. Its amazing.

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

More than just shades, DA!🙂 Can someone do a side-by-side video of The Wiz in Round 11 1998 and Kossie in Round 7 2021? From first gather of ball, to ball through the sticks, it's 17 seconds Farmer, 16 seconds Pickett.

...and I've gotta say, while the runs are equals for effort and tank, Kossie's shows of skill street Jeff's straight charge! (as do the respective involvements of teammates btw!)

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.

Your analysis reeks of Class Contempt. So you are a 'winner' ( landwoner) therefore you are entitled to better treatment ( slaves) .

Nah, if all men are  created equal they should all be treated the same way. So you're in a team that's won a few flags. By your reckoning  that gives them the right to play the Upper Class Landlord and the right to leniency. No-one has the right to abuse their fame, power, call it what you want.

I guess that makes me a Leftie...

Holy Moses @dieter!! Happy to chat about it if you want to PM me, I’m all for a classless society and debating nuances - but can we leave the Kozzie Pickett thread for views on Kozzie Pickett??

Even his free kicks against has been cut in half. Had great intent last year with his pressure, but so much more discipline this year.

I just noticed reaching the bottom of the Demonland page that Pickett, Davey and Farmer were all born in June.  That would seem to make a compelling case for putting our indigenous stars out to stud in September!

    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
