Speaking of defenders 'Pennant'...do you have a view on Jed Adams?

I know it's not the right thread but seeing as you're here....

No, haven’t actually seen him play, live coached against Peel colts 3 times last season and he didn’t play in any of those games

Have always laughed at other club's 'death riding' our picks, feel like it's tempting fate to do the same. Not sure any club has done well put of death riding.

That said, top 5 please, would really burn Freo who have been a 'Bell' end to deal with.

Freo’s best team are certainly top 8 (and higher) quality but I’m feeling optimistic about this pick as they traded out a fair bit of depth. I can’t see them coping well with more than a couple of best 18 injuries. Hopefully they will have a 2019 Dees-type run!

Bit of a sheltered life here. I presume it's a cultural reference, but what does 'deathride' mean and what are its origins?

'Feathered cap', too, for that matter (in this context)...

Deathride in this context is to be wishing on the downfall of whatever teams pick you own, not really sure where it originates from but has become the common phrase used in pick swap scenarios. You'll find various threads on other footy forums 'deathriding' other teams i.e Swans have one for Hawthorn, as they own their 2nd rounder next year

Peter Bell liked using the feather in cap phrase to describe his many trade 'wins' & accomplishments

Fair chance they’ll be 6-0 unfortunately. Saints, Roos, Eagles, Crows, Suns, Bulldogs.

Hope I’m wrong.

Possible. They have a pretty brutal middle part of the year though.

If they drop only 1 or 2 of those first five games it may change their fate dramatically. 

At least at the start of the year the poorer sides typically are more competitive, with greater chance of upsets.

Like us after 2019, you come back with a much fixture normal (haven't looked depth) and a lot more teams have put more work into you, to find your weaknesses. The test is how well they adjust to the change.  They need to find goals and Jackson's not the answer there, so where do they come from.  Their mids aren't big goal kickers.

Can only hope the top 5 pick we wanted for Jackson this year will be delivered next year to correct the imbalance of this trade.

Remember our 2019 year...would have been no chance of that happening to us either.

We finished 2nd last...

Not saying it will happen by any stretch but recent history shows it's a possibility.

Imagine finishing in the bottom 5 having given away  your top end picks.

At least we were able to top up and go again.

That would be a sensational result.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
