As Brisbane prepare
for their 2019 finals campaign, former Lions captain, and current forward line coach, Jed Adcock reflects on the club's leaner years during which he played in one solitary final.
"I wouldn't say unlucky or anything like that when I was a player," Adcock said.
"A lot of players got through their footy career without playing finals. I'm a lot of games with only one final, but it was a nice ride.
"Would I change it for more finals? You'd probably change small things here and there. I had a good run, it wasn't my time at the time."

Jed Adcock will
be returning to Brisbane to work as part of Chris Fagan's new coaching panel.
Adcock played seven games for the Dogs in 2016 and was part of the Footscray VFL team that won the flag.
"I'm really, really excited to be back," said Adcock.
"The year away has done a lot of good for me I learnt a lot about myself and a lot about footy and where the game is at now.
"Hopefully I can pass on some of that knowledge and the learnings from that to support the club."

Jed Adcock says 2016 will
be his final year.
"I want to thank the club for giving me the opportunity to continue my career," Adcock said of the Western Bulldogs.
"Although its only been one year, I've learned a lot both as a player and from a coaching standpoint.
"I'm ready to move on to the next phase of my life and career, which includes pursuing coaching at AFL level."

With injuries and suspension savaging the Dogs' backline this season, the club's decision to recruit former Brisbane Lions skipper Jed Adcock is looking more inspired by the day.
"Jed's been really solid for us and his experience has really helped," Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge said.
"He's learning as the weeks go by to play with new teammates. I think he's enjoying it, and we need him more than ever to play his very best."
Adcock says he is continually adjusting to his role at his new club.
"I've had to come in and learn a whole new system and that's taken time to understand the game plan, so I've been finding my feet the past few weeks," Adcock said.
"I've felt more and more comfortable in the system and myself."

Jed Adcock says he feels "re-energised" and believes he could play on for another two seasons.
"I'm 30 and I feel I've got some really good footy ahead of me. Whether it's one year or three years, time will tell," Adcock said.
"I'm in a really good place at the moment, the body feels good, and it's nice to be in this system and playing some good, aggressive footy."

Jed Adcock says a move forward in the second half of last season was the catalyst for a lifeline from the Western Bulldogs.
"I ended up playing forward for the second half of the year, had a couple of really good games," Adcock told RSN radio.
"So I think the club, and especially Luke (Beveridge) probably saw that I could play across the whole ground now - forward, midfield and back."
While he was disappointed he didn't fit in to the future plans at the Gabba, Adcock is excited by what's building at Whitten Oval.
"A lot of people talk about playing at the one club for life, (and) I was always hoping that would be the case, but it wasn't to be and you have to move on pretty quick," Adcock said.
"I was lucky enough to get an opportunity around here and hopefully I've got a few years down here. I'm still pushing to play a bit more finals footy and hopefully one-day play in a premiership."

After being told by the Lions that he would not be required beyond 2015, Jed Adcock says he is still capable of playing at AFL level for another three years.
"I was pretty confident throughout the whole year that my future next year was going to be pretty good, so it came as a fair shock when I got told at the end of the year that I'd be moving on," Adcock said.
"I felt like my form as a defender was really good, and I definitely felt that I'd done enough.
"I still feel like I've got three or four really good years of footy left in me. I'm only 29. I'm excited by the opportunity to move on and see what's next for me."

Jed Adcock admits it was tough losing the Brisbane Lions captaincy, but says there is no hard feelings towards replacement skipper Tom Rockliff.
"It was hard early. I was pretty keen to go around for another year," Adcock said.
"I was under no illusions. I understood 'Rocky' was definitely going to take over. Whether it was this year or next year was probably the only decision the club had to make.
"The club thought this year was the right year for him to take over.
"Once I was able to get my head around that and understand that and realise nothing really changes for me other than I don't have a title next to your name it's all fine.
"We're all men and we're all here for one common goal, to win premierships."

"I chat to him every now and then, I'll give him a call," Adcock said.
"I worked pretty closely with him the last few years as a leader of this footy club.
"We've got a good relationship and we'll continue to have that. We'll talk when we need to talk and talk footy when we need to talk footy.
"I think early it was important for him to let 'Leppa' be the coach and let him take this footy club in the way he needed to, and Vossy definitely took a step back for a while, but he'll remain good mates to a lot of us."

Jonathan Brown steps down as co-captain of Brisbane to allow Jed Adcock to assume full responsibility as skipper of the Lions.
"He was really keen to step away and become a mentor and we were keen to do the same thing," Lions coach Justin Leppitsch said of Brown's decision to step down.
"I think it'll help him personally, but more importantly it'll help our club develop new leaders.
" I think it's time the next generation come through. We're really conscious to use his strengths but also grow others from underneath."

"As we know, 'Browny' won't be around forever, and with Jed as co-captain, it will not only ease the load on 'Browny', but importantly they will both play a critical role in the continued development of Tom's and Daniel's leadership capabilities over the coming years.
"Jed is not only a leader on-field, he is an excellent representative of this footy club, and its culture and values."

"The last couple of weeks have come along really quick so hopefully [I'll be in] full training by Christmas which is only a few weeks away," Adcock said.
"It's put me at least three weeks behind, but the good thing I look at is it gives me a good rest going into round one.
"I'll be doing a bit more work than the other boys in January, February, but hopefully it means the body is really refreshed. [The body] feels good, hopefully [the surgery] doesn't put me too far behind."
Tuesday, 21 August 2012

"It's a significant show of faith by these young men in the direction we're heading as a club but also terrific news for our members and supporters."

Tuesday, 1 September 2009
The Brisbane Lions will be missing five key players in their elimination final against Carlton.
Daniel Merrett (hamstring), Daniel Bradshaw (quad) and Jed Adcock (knee) will all be sidelined for at least another week, and are likely to be joined by Simon Black (hamstring) and Josh Drummond (quad) who were injured in their final regular season match against the Swans.
''All those players are probably registered down as 'test' but are fairly likely to be unlikely to play, so we've got to plan ahead without them there,'' Lions coach Michael Voss said.
''Normally I'd sit here and say they're 50:50 but they're probably less than that so there's no real point dragging out that process any longer than we need to. If they come up then good, but we're not expecting them to.''
Thursday, 27 August 2009
Jed Adcock's season may be over after pulling up sore in the reserves last week.

Michael Voss hopeful that one of his young players can fill the breach in the wake of Jed Adcock's serious knee injury.
The defender twisted awkwardly in the opening minutes of Saturday night's win over Geelong and left the field in pain after injuring his right knee.
"The prognosis straight away was that he was likely to be out for the year, and there's been nothing in the last sort of 24 hours that would suggest that that's changed," Brisbane coach Michael Voss said.
"Another person gets his opportunity. We hope that it's going to be a Tom Collier or a Pearce Hanley ... that's the opportunity that they now have."

Lions vice-captain Jed Adcock says a uniform preparation can help the club attain more consistency on the field when the club plays away from home.
"It's more a mental thing to make sure we're prepared the same as we do at home," Adcock said.
