David King blasts Mason Cox after Pies giant was rated the WORST player on ground at Brisbane

David King blasts Mason Cox after Pies giant was rated the WORST player on ground during their defeat by Brisbane as two-time premiership winner insists American has ‘no presence’ in Craig McRae’s forward line

  • Mason Cox’s has been blasted following his woeful display against Brisbane 
  • The Collingwood star was named the worst player on ground in Thursday’s loss 
  • Craig McRae went tall but the giant American had no influence on the game
  • David King said Cox has ‘no presence’ and ‘the experiment has run its course’ 

Patience with Mason Cox is wearing thin as Fox Footy pundits blasted the Collingwood star after another lackluster display against the Brisbane Lions.

The American giant was included in Craig McRae’s side for the trip to the Gabba, with the Pies going tall for their contest against Chris Fagan’s premiership hopefuls on Thursday night.

However, Cox struggled to make a positive impression, kicking one behind while managing just four disposals with two marks and seven hitouts.

According to the Official AFL Player Ratings, Cox was the lowest-rated player on ground and his lack of meaningful contribution hampered Collingwood, who fell to a 98-91 defeat.

Two-time premiership winner David King has questioned Cox’s inclusion in McRae’s side, insisting that the 211cm big man has ‘no presence’ in this Collingwood team.

‘I’m wondering what the function is that Mason Cox plays for the Pies. Because there’s just no influence,’ King said after the game.

‘He’s 31 years of age – the experiment has run its course. 78 games he’s played of AFL footy, and just too regularly (struggles).

‘I’m just looking at what he’s done. He hasn’t shifted a game or shifted a course of a game for a long time.

‘I’m just worried they’ve gone really tall tonight, they’ve got two ruckmen already, do they need Mason Cox down there? I think the guy has no presence, no influence forward of centre, I just think this experiment has run its course.’
