Does not make up for the art of crumbing especially to the front  of the pack. Who takes Kossies place at ground level when he wasted his time flying from the back over other Dees players who are in the team to mark the ball.

in other words ONE mark swallow in 100 games ( summers) does not make a summer!!! 

Imagine if all players did this an all positions team rules would be a disaster.

Inlove Kossie and appreciate that he is allowed plenty of space to play expansively because of his amazing ability. Thats what we love about home but speccys can be left to our talls thank . you 
 

 

Come on didn't Kozzies high flying grab give you just a little bit of a 😊

Kozz is our future and at his best is the most damaging small forward in the comp. I love the way he attacks the ball. Here’s to 100 more Kozz ❤️

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 

 

 

If you watch carefully. Kozzie applied a lot of pressure acts in the GF…

You have to watch him carefully

if this is not Dr. D in disguise he must be a clone, posts are almost of an identical nature. Unless you enjoy being trolled put him on ignore.

Without even touching on his forward craft, pressure, speed, the amount of goals he's kicked etc... he's one of the best dual sided players I thing I've seen in red and blue.

Your opinion fair enough. Mine is that he is not necessarily trying to take a lot of marks, and by the way Melksham does the same thing, but his idea is to disturb opposition from taking defensive marks and clearing along with the obvious view to keeping it inside 50. Plain enough for me.

If we could duplicate him so we can have one up forward and one in the midfield at all times, that would be great.

He's too good at both roles. Just so damaging. His evasive skills, but also his vision when he plays up the field is up there with the best mids in the game.

That would also mean duplicates of his defensive pressure. Yes please.

The best small forward we’ve had since the The Wiz 

Both sensational players but Kozzy has arguably more tricks due to his time in the midfield 

He is building consistently in output and tempering some of his aggression 

One of our very best and a great career so far 

He is a ripper

Totally agree @Willmoy1947.

A lot of the times in the past, he's had to make the decision to fly because there were one or two opposition about to easily mark the ball. Our entries were poor and you can see he almost always stays down if our tall forwards are competing.

He's so fast at getting back on his feet anyway.

With Eddie Betts retired now, I think he's the most skillful and exciting player in the league.

I've loved the way he's continued to learn to dial down the more aggressive elements of his game. 

The package of his offensive and defensive elements together make him more valuable than his counterparts such as Cameron and Bolton. People miss the one percenters he often does so well.

Watching him come from beside the kicker to crumb the ball down field in our forward line is something else

I hope we get to see him dance in the red and blue in a couple more Grand finals yet.

Congrats Kozzie!

What I'm loving about Pickett's overall progress is the perfectly normal maturation of a deeper awareness of the system and the situation. I think that is what sets players like Rioli and Bruest apart is the awareness that allows them to not only do the brilliant thing but also make sure it has brilliant effect.

For all the hype about Buddy & Roughhead, having the creativity of both Bruest and Rioli in a team is pure luxury. It was also an underrated aspect of Eddie Betts' game - about 3/4 of his disposals, throughout his career, were score involvements!

Pickett's growing game awareness and demonstrated commitment to personal growth are why any debate about the best small forward from his draft is now leaving Weightman in the dust.

You could almost feel bombers fans lamenting the fact they don't have Kozzi in their team. Amazing drafting by us.

Pick 12

And then Rivers at 32!

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    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
