Port chasing Kozzy Pickett



Recommended Posts

Unless Kozzie says to the club that he’ll refuse to return under any circumstances, he’ll be at the MFC next year. No chance in the universe that the MFC will entertain a trade here, unless Port offer us something stupid like Butters or Rozee in return.

However it’s a problem to deal with next year.

I’m hearing multiple reports that Melbourne is chasing Zac Butters. Doing everything they can to get him next year. Melbourne boy who wants to come home. Doesn’t love Adelaide - because, well, it’s Adelaide.

All you have to do is ring up Trade Radio, and the rumour will gather some legs.

Lobb stayed last year, has a great year. Bobby Hill stayed, had a Bobby hill year before unfortunate illness. Dunkley stayed multiple years.

My guess is Pickett won’t even try to leave because he knows what the answer will be. And port won’t even try to get him because they know what it will be too - for one they’d have to pay double what the draft capital price could be in a years time. They’ll all look foolish.

This is really a story just for clicks. 

If PA are keen, they go all in with Kozzie this year, talk high salaries, tour facilities, and all that courting. Knowing full well nothing happens, but enough to try to delay Kozzie from signing next year.

 

Personally I don't think he'll go. He will absolutely be the priority of the out of contracts, and with Jackson gone there is plenty of money.

Membership will drop if we lose both of our best youngsters in Jacko and Kozzie, it’ll be a disaster for the club.

If you don’t renew your membership because of 2 players leaving then maybe footy is not for you.

You might think that, but it would likely have a significant effect on young supporters with 36 or 6 on their jumper. Kids aren't as rusted on as they have been on the past

Parents but their kids memberships, kids find a new favourite player very quickly

You're going by totals when there's a different amount of games though.

Average tackles per game he's down by 0.8 this year compared to 2021. Not exactly what I would call " a fair bit" and far from "alarming".

He's our number 1 player for average tackles inside 50 and our second for average goals.

Ridiculous to imply he doesn't impact "both offensively and defensively".

 

Kozzy had some special games kicking bags of goals and doing some great pressure acts.

But equally would go missing in large parts of games for weeks on end. 

I recall countless discussions in game day threads this year where many were calling for him to be dropped not for a lack of scoring goals but not doing the simple effort based defensive work.

Don’t have to agree with me, but that is how I see it.

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.

Relax, we still got Charlie Spargo!!

Kane Cornes has just proved how easy it is to start a rumour

 

Ring ring ring

hello you’re on with trade radio

its Chris from camberwell I’m wondering if you can provide a report on young Kane cornes’ unfortunate accident where all reports indicate he got his testes stuck in his own mouth as I understand it’s caused quite the kerfuffle down the sheds and also I wouldn’t mind an update on young Karen picketts contract status and also is there any update on the status of Darren turner’s move to the wing which will see Alan brayshaw move to full forward

We don't need to be concentrating on this over summer. Wait till the start of next years season and we can blow it until it is 700 hundred pages long.

40 and 41 goals for a small forward is elite stuff two years running. His defensive presence is a bonus and I think he does that well.

Particularly when they're only his second and third years. Kozzy is a star.

Did you post that in response to my earlier post to start rumours about Butters and Rozee?

    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

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    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
