    So what are you're hopes for you're teams 2018 fixture?

    Teams you would like double ups against

    Etc. You get the idea.

    Darwin games have killed us for years.

    We play like sloths the week after.

    Enough already.

    Not playing the two Grand Finalists in the first three rounds would be nice.

    Tbh I'd like more than one game at the mcg, not that we'll be playing finals or anything.

    No games in Tassie.

    A big MCG GF rematch on a Friday night would be fantastic

    - Adelaide away, ridiculously long period in between games.
    - Play Fremantle at home, we've played them in Melbourne twice since 2009.
    - Not play Sydney twice, played them twice two years in a row, one meeting in Melbourne. (Played 4/6 past games against them in Sydney.)
    - Geelong away, would like to tick that one off.
    --
    Non-Carlton requests:
    - Anzac Eve/Anzac Day teams cross over the next week (Assuming Essendon-Melbourne and Collingwood-Richmond given the Queen's Birthday Clash)

    Block 108 as loud as any
    - One (or both) of the Adelaide teams at home (played twice in Adelaide and neither at home in 2017)
    - Brisbane at home
    - Carlton away

    That covers any fixture lopsidedness that's been experienced over the past couple seasons

    Then there's the usuals like:

    - At least two games at the MCG (our record there is pretty good as is but experience counts for a lot)
    - Limited number of 6 day breaks (happy to not play any Friday night fixtures if this is the case. They start too early as home games anyway)
    - No Tassie trips
    - One trip each to QLD/NSW
    - At least once to AO to lessen travel burden
    - Darwin/Alice Springs can GAGF

    2 Ballarat games vs low drawing interstate (although one Adelaide team probably likely.

    Retain good Friday vs North

    We should also not be ditched for women's game vs melbourne, irony being it drew lower without us

    Not to travel to geelong for once

    Still obtain around 3 Friday nights and be in melbourne (even though we had 7 last year only two in melbiurne)

    Saturday afternoons are great, more please

    We haven't vs Carlton twice in more than a decade I reckon!

    No games in Tassie, happy to play Melbourne up in Darwin again.
    3-4 games at the MCG
    Saturday night showdown, sick off the stupid sunday twilight showdowns.
    More games on early sunday timeslot, seem to get very strong crowds

    More MCG games
    Port Adelaide at Etihad
    Less interstate travel
    Less Sunday twilights
    More Friday nights.
    Pretty much what every team wants though.

    I wouldn't mind 22 games against Melbourne. Happy to rotate between the G, Etihad and whatever the Hobart oval is called this week.

    Poor you. Traveling 6 times a year is too much for you I agree.

    No more games in Adelaide. I'm sick of 2 games a year at Adelaide Oval and never playing an Adelaide team at Etihad.

    My wish list for Port:

    - St Kilda at Etihad. Haven't played them there since 2013. In fact, they've travelled to Adelaide 8 times since they last played a South Australian team at home :eek:

    - A Tasmania game. Haven't played down there since 2013 and we do have a few supporters there as well. I'd prefer to play North there and play Hawthorn in Melbourne

    - Ballarat again. I really enjoyed the day when we played the Bulldogs down there this year and would love to do that again.

    - Swans at home & GWS at Spotless. Not necessarily to give us any better chances of winning or anything, we're just 'due'.
