I think the best is yet to come.

He's certainly got a lot of room to improve.

If he improves anymore he can probably go first ruck this Saturday.

His consistency from game to game is getting better.  

And certainly the 1%ers and pressure acts are always a joy to watch

The list of small forwards who have been consistently delivering ~40 goals a season from just their second season woudl be a very short piece of paper.

Come to think of it, there would be very few small forwards who reached 100 games at just barely 23yrs old. A testament to the fact he has continued to be dangerous and to make a contribution even when his form has been a bit off.

I'm glad for him that he has put together a really nice run of form ready to celebrate his 100th with seven goals against the Buttersoft Bombers.

100 games for just over 100 goals and one speccy. 

His pressure acts are at least 50% running after the full back kicking in which is predictable pressure. 

Memorable 1% ers are the block that allowed Tracs" Daicos"  goal in the  grandfinal ..that was elite 1% even if it was about the only thing he did on the day

I'll never understand what motivates someone to go to the bother of trolling people on a footy forum.

Most aberrant behaviour serves some sort of self protective purpose, so i hope you are ok. 

Be that as it may, better for my wellbeing if I put you ignore.

See ya.

I find it @IRW kinda funny. The laugh you have that when something is so wrong you end up laughing. 
 

But on a serious level, you are right. I hope he is ok and the people around him are ok too. This behaviour tends to transcend itself beyond the keyboard.

Kozzie is a terrific example of player development and talent recognition.

We drafted him much earlier than his expected position (presumably because we didn't want to miss him).

Then we stuck with him through his first 20 games or so when spent much of the time running around like a headless chook.

Now we have a gun small forward/mid who can perform show stealing miracles and who has another 200 games to go !!!!

I think some underestimate how lucky we are to see a player of his calibre,

The much lauded Cyril Rioli kicked 40 goals twice in eleven years of AFL. Kozzie has done it twice before he was 21.

Last few years  40 goals, 41, 37 and 25 so far this year in 14 games.

He is an outstanding talent that will go down as a melbourne great.

He also seems to have control over any agro of the past. When on song like the lions game , he is worth more than the price of admission.

Excitement machine now pulling in spekkies after a five goal haul.

The ignore function is not only a great means of peace of mind but the most delightful way of having the last word😄.

Kossie has been a great success in his first 99 games and his development into a great team player has been a joy to witness.

For anyone who can, I would love to see statistical comparison at first 100 games mark of he and Cyril Rioli. From my admittedly average memory, I think Kossie might have Cyril covered. He certainly inspires the crowd to expect the unexpected whenever he is near the ball, much the same way Cyril did.

I look forward to many years watching Kossie do what most others can only dream of doing, and isn’t that why we pay our money to witness elite sports-people do their thing. It will be great reward for Kossie if his fantastic abilities can contribute in a major way to a few more flags for him and his team mates.

Continue that journey of reward in your hundredth on Saturday evening Kossie.

Some absolute junk comments. 
 

“100 games for just over 100 goals”? He’s kicked 150 goals in 99 games so ‘just over’ is doing some real heavy lifting there.

Of the top 20 in his draft Koz is:

#1 for games played

#1 for goals, ahead of Cody Weightman on 119.

#2 for goals per game behind Weightman, 1.75 vs 1.52. Georgiades is the only other to average >1 per game. 

#4 for tackles behind Rowell, Serong and Tom Green. #5 on tackles per game as Hayden Young sneaks ahead of him. 

#1 for goal assists overall and per game. 

#2 for marks i50 overall and #3 for mi50 per game. 

He’s elite, and he’s going to get better.

150 goals for Kozzi

Averages around 40 a season which is amazing consistency in his first 4-5 seasons

His clearances, inside 50’s and disposals are all up this year

In the top 3 small forwards in the league i reckon

a pleasure to watch

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week. Binman will do his regular stats files segment for the game against the Bombers and will also preview the upcoming match against the Dockers. He will not be taking any questions. I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    For 3 quarters the Demons ground out a lead against the Bombers in tough wet conditions at the MCG before putting foot down early in the last quarter eventually winning by 17 points and putting them firmly back in the hunt for September action.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
