    The system in place isn’t horrible. Would mind a Friday night game down here as well. It would be great to get some legit coverage.

    Did I read a while back that we will only have 10 home games at the Gabba and selling one off due to the Games?

    I think Suns are playing a couple of home games at the Gabba. It would be good if one of them was against us to get that 11th game at the Gabba.

    2 games against GC
    2 games against Kangas
    2 games against Blues
    2 games against Pies

    That's really all I want.

    Not going to happen... that's 4 repeats from the bottom six when our maximum is 3. See above. Be good to only play North once, when we struggle against them. Would be very nice to beat the Colliwobbles twice. Can't wait.

    No way we will play the magpies twice.....we are not big enough crowd wise. Same with Carlton I imagine. North n GC for sure.

    The QClash on a Friday night would be ideal IMO.

    not going to happen. Neither club playing well enough yet to draw any interest for a Friday night game.

    Some whispers around a few months ago that we'd try an NRL-style double header at the Gabba in 2018 as the Suns are on the road for the first half of the year.

    Can't imagine the Suns get many to any games they host outright themselves in Brisbane, so it'd be a great way of boosting the attendance.

    I understand but IMO it is the exposure AFL in QLD deserves.

    I can see a few issues with that. No attraction at all for the broadcaster. Possibility of a low crowd given where both clubs are at. And a decent chance the game will go head to head with the Broncos given the NRL often schedules them on a Friday night.

    My simple is wish as it is every year is a minimum of six games in Melbourne (not including Geelong or Tasmania (which seem to occasionally get included as "Melbourne" games)).

    With Suns not being able to use metricon till May does that mean we will have extra home games early in the year and very few towards the end of the year?

    maybe they will give us slightly more home games so they don't have too many at the Gabba

    From our family perspective: A Vic game during July school holidays so we can get to it would be nice for us. More twilight games and less arvo games as they clash with activities and the sun and heat suck. No Sunday twilight but ok if there's a public or school holiday next day.

    I hear what you are saying from a fans point of view but playing in the heat is an advantage for us.

    I was just about to post the same thing. I would like a minimum of 6 games in Melbourne with 3 at the MCG (Melbourne, Richmond, Collingwood) and 3 at Etihad (Carlton, North Melbourne and St.Kilda). St.Kilda and Melbourne would have to be due for a trip to the Gabba and it would be great to play Carlton and Collingwood twice. I don't mind travelling to Tassie to play Hawthorn, but they are also due for a game at the Gabba I would have thought.
