Port chasing Kozzy Pickett



Recommended Posts

Jesus I can deal with losing Jacko but to lose Pickett would be soul crushing.. he's one of my favourite players and he brings some genuine excitement and X factor to our team.

I mean he's still contracted for another year so we do have the upper power. 

Really hope signing guys like Brayshaw to 6 year deal isn't going to hinder getting contracts sorted for the likes of Pickett.

I’d be shocked if the guy who has his jumper number and the word “loyalty” tattooed on himself would leave.

Losing him would be a disaster for the club. Hopefully this is just rubbish talk off the back of Kane Cornes pulling it out of his [censored] as an example that he admitted had no  fact to it. 

The thing that worries me is if there’s a rift in the players and the culture has tanked. If we see multiple players wanting out of a premiership team that should contend for years to come, then the only possible reason is poor culture. Hopefully that’s not the case!

Kozzy has had a great year and has developed nicely. still has flaws in his game and lacks defensive presence. Would hate to lose him as we would lose a major scoring avenue but it wouldn’t be the end of the world.

Would demand a top 5 pick in return.

2 great years!  40 goals last year, 41 this year .

Would hate for him to leave us, especially the way he tackles aha

Couldn't be further from the truth. Small forwards like Kozzie impact results more than a ruckman like Jackson. It would be a disaster to lose a small forward who has kicked 40 goals in both of his full seasons.

We have 2 X Factor players in our forward line in Kozzie and Fritsch. If anything, we need a couple more who can take advantage of our midfield dominance.

Are you expecting Spargo to take up the slack?

Cal Twomey stated yesterday there is zero chance Kozzie leaves Melbourne this year. Hope we can re-sign him in the off-season otherwise it will be another Jackson-like season to endure.

The price of Lobb and Rioli, how will Dunkley 'domino' fall?

Stated here at around the 4.20 mark.

Didn’t think we would have a problem with players leaving since we won the premiership but it’s still happening unfortunately. 

It actually really pisses me off. 

Why would you want to leave our club NOW.

Agreed.  But who says Kozzie wants to leave?

Port Adelaide would like to recruit him but so would every other club.

I'll resist the trap of jumping at shadows unless something substantial happens.

This is why the league needs anti tampering rules. There’s no reason for Pickett to cop this speculation now and for an entire year.

Its all so Craig the Labrador Hutchinson can make money from his pitiful media empire one click at a time.

Who on earth  is Michaelangelo Leonardo Roccaceli anyway? One of the leftover ninja turtles? For all we know he’s about as well connected to the trade market as Melksham’s baby.

Anti-tampering is too hard to police. Every club is guilty of it, so I don't see an issue.

It’s a meat market and is getting worse each year.

The stigma of changing clubs is fading, it won't be long til we're like the NBA or other leagues

No wonder 7 year deals are becoming the norm

The NBA has nonsense of star players demanding trades and breaking contracts, plus teams so happy to tank.

But the one thing it does do is lock top draft picks in for 4 years and realistically 2-4 more before they talk about breaking extensions.

I’m ok with more player movement as long as it isn’t designed for tanking and super teams, but the one thing that’s way out of line at the moment is how little leverage clubs have on younger players. If they need to go home that’s ok, no issue losing Jacko  for that reason, but there shouldn’t be contract incentives that favour moving for young players.

I know Demonstone but usually where there is smoke there is 🔥and if he wants to stay then sign an extension (I think I saw somewhere that the club is trying to re-sign him but can’t remember where).

I'm starting to think that for your top 15 it's 3 year minimum deals and sign your next deal at the end of year 2 or you could be traded. The problem with the AFL system is that the player needs to consent to the trade

He’s contracted, so unless it’s an offer too good to refuse (pick 1 territory) then he ain’t leaving.

 

It doesn't really matter unless you demand he honours the contract which is not a great way to manage a cohesive list

It’s really not that hard. You simply stop players meeting with clubs or clubs talking about other players. 

Of course they will be sniffing around with agents but the whole process is delayed if they can’t get busted meeting with or discussing rivals.

Port can GTFO

I don't think anyone is concerned about this season, it's next when he's a free agent. If they don't handle it soon it will become a headline and chip away at team morale for 12 months like Jackson did.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
