Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


Kozzy Pickett Re-Signs for 4 Years



Recommended Posts

People are very fatalistic in this thread. Are we really this doubtful that  he’ll stay at the club. 
I’m not convinced he’s rushing out the door at the first opportunity 

Lighten up folks.

Don't count out the impact of losing Jackson and Bedford in this. They were Kozzy's two best mates at the club easily I reckon. Not sure he has any other relationships as close as that on the list at the moment, bar Burgyone, who isn't even on the list yet. Feel if Jackson had've stayed it would've kept that 2019 draft class together for longer, who knows what'll happen to Riv at the end of the year either, out of contract as well

Jackson was garbage against Freo last year averaging all of 1 mark in both games for someone that’s probably taller than 85-90% of the league.

If Kozzie has a stinker against Port in round 10, I’m panicking.

 

Kozzie had a pearler against Port in round 18 last year kicking 6.!!!

Thanks layzie agree 100%, Kozzie is a must keep. I think I will give this thread a miss now until Mr Pickett re-signs with the mighty Dees.!!!

Melbourne are confident they have created the perfect environment to convince livewire forward Kysaiah Pickett to extend his time at the Demons beyond this season, but they will not be rushing him to decide on his future.

hmmmm......

Jackson and possibly Pickett leaving in the space of 3 seasons,

Two premiership players...strong list, apparently great environment...something ain't right, I hope Sir Hubris is as far away as possible from the joint...

I note Noah Anderson signed on at GC for another few years,

It's not that difficult is it?

We should try and keep Kozzie Pickett if no-one has said that already. 

That’s a very good idea.

Pity no one else had thought of it, in the past 9 pages of the thread about keeping Kozzie.

Really Stigga!

Your comment is incomplete and negative. 

 This is the real situation.

2011 -2022  NUMEROUS players leave GC inc. our Great Full Back Maysie.

2011 -2016 MFC lose too many players

2017-2022MFC wins flag 2021 makes Finals 3 times in 5 years with lowest 5 th  Loses virtually only L. Jackson who as far back as 2020 when he signed only a ONE year extra as others numerous signed mega deals. 

GC 2022/2023 lose RANKIN and Anderson signed 4 yr deal!

MFC 2022 Gain Grundy and Hunter snd Schache to replenish list. 

MFC  2023 haven't lost Kossie YET.

And you think there is something wrong in a curious comment. Facts please why are we losing any one ?

Hi 58er,

Didn't mean to come across as negative,

I suppose another year of speculation sounds exhausting,

In relation to your response, GC from 2011 to very recently were rot,

As were we from 2011-16,

So yes retention was difficult,

And you're right,Jackson, has been the only player of note in the past few years to leave, probably because we haven't been rot,

Hence why arguably at the peak of our powers, it would be strange for 2 premiership players to leave, when money is a non-issue.

I'm presenting a hypothetical based on Pickett leaving (whether he is intending to I have no idea)

However last year's French Farce (LJ apparently taking up until the last hour to make up his mind) still lingers.

If Pickett has already made his mind up to leave, I'd rather play Chandler instead (or Laurie).

So who are his mates in Adelaide he's rushing off to play with then ?

This sounds too much like the Jackson situation all over again. 
Losing Kosi will be a really bitter pill to swallow.

what i liked about our 2018 drafting is we chose players with X factor, a real point of difference. The type you need to win premierships. i.e Jackson and Kozzie.

We just cant afford to lose both. It's so hard though when teams are throwing ridicuolous amounts money at them. 

and iff there is one team in the AFL that is obsessed with 'flashy' players its Port.

My biggest concern also...

You would think so now that Jackson has left. 

I also don't think money is a factor for Kosi. Port would be pretty tight with their cap too you'd imagine.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
