Such an incredible set of highlights and that was just the goals. He's right up there with the best of all time IMHO. 

I'm not going to waste any emotional energy getting worked up about if he stays or goes. There's nothing any of us can do about it. I thank Scully for teaching me that no player is irreplaceable or worth getting worked up about. He turned into Hogan turned into May. Life goes on. But having said that what a player. Ever since I saw his pre draft highlights he has reminded me of Cyril Rioli. So I did a little bit of picking. Here's some stats to compare them. 

                           Kosie                    Cyril.                Kosie                    Cyril                  Kosie                    Cyril

Year                    1                             1                         2                          2                          3                          3

Games             14                            25                      25                         19                       23                          20

Goals  (Av)         7 (0.5)                  24 (1.0)             40 (1.6)                21 (1.1)            41 (1.8)                 27 (1.4)

Tackles (Av)     35 (2.5)                 87 (3.5)            87 (3.5)                 89 (4.7)             62 (2.7).               98 (4.9)

Some very interesting comparisons. The one that stands out for me as I always thought Kossie's defence work and tackling was way ahead of Cyril. Wrong. Also interesting that Kossie's tackling dropped off last season. But Kossie is clearly a much more substantial goal scorer than Cyril who kicked 42 in his 8th year and 47 in his 9th year.

Kozzy is such a special player and only 21! I can't even imagine what he will be doing at 24/25 years of age at his prime... 😩

Yep......can't wait to see him reach top gear. Hope it's in a red a blue jumper. 

I think as great as Petty is ..he too will probably reach new heights ...no pun intended.

I also think Sparrow has incredible potential.

Cyril kicked 40 goals or more twice in 11 seasons.

Kozzie has done it twice before he is 22 yo.

The Bros on the Deebrief podcast criticised our stance of ‘giving Kozzie all the time he needs’ to make a decision and to push for a signature now; tacitly pushing for an ultimatum on the eve of the season.

Do people actually think that is a good thing to do?! Hands up who is that dim, to think that would be good for him this season or that it would keep him around long term?

Bizarre.

Needs a 5 year extension to give him time to decide

These are big decisions for players and they work to their timetable, not that of frustrated/impatient supporters.

Annoying as it is for us not to know now, we have to just be patient and hope he stays.

what did the club actually say?

giving him some time? or giving him as much time as he wants?

i hope the club has set a time limit (not publicly) of by the mid season bye. if it drags on after that it could have an impact on the whole team and detract from the premiership focus and we end up in another media circus

i know you can't absolutely force it, but there comes a reasonable time when it must be resolved

Even a Key forward like Charlie Dixon has only kicked 40 goals or more twice in 12 seasons....

If he wants out, or is leaning out, the circus comes.

What is the incentive to push for a public decision? Because that is the only thing that will disperse the circus. 

I am all for coming to an agreement at some point if he is to go but ultimatums solve nothing and probably push him out. 

At some point we have to get comfortable with good players being wanted by other clubs if we are continue to be a good team.

Even if the club did give him a timeframe we would never know unless he re-signed. So it wouldn't stop the media speculation.

Agree.

We have to ensure an environment and of course a remuneration, that players are comfortable with.

What would a timeline even achieve? The only scenario which we'd be able to do something is if we it appear that we would finish outside of top 8. At this point you would stop playing him with the intent to develop others. We all know the likelihood of that is quite small.

I understand that fans are frustrated and really don't want to go through the circus of last year again but this would be a pretty silly thing to do.

I'm still confident Jacko might stay for what it's worth

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
