    Also, like most, preferably no Sunday twilight games, particularly in Melbourne.

    Further to 3KZ is Football post, the more games at the MCG the better; just a great venue to watch the footy, plus I’m not a big fan of Docklands.

    This is basically my only wish. More games in Melbourne for the old Fiztroy supporters!

    Anyone know when the 2018 fixture will be released? Was about a week after trade period last year.

    NRL has released their fixture so no reason now why Lions games should be competing with Broncos games for the "fickle" fan base who swap & change at a whim.

    Has the NRL ever released their fixture before the AFL? Interesting.

    Can only be good for the northern clubs - should be no major clashes hopefully.

    NRL used to be driven by the broadcasters who basically ran the schedule for TV numbers. This is the first year they haven't.

    Probably not going to happen next season but I'd like a Friday Night QClash. I'd also like at least 1 Friday night game per year at the Gabba.

    As many Saturday twilight games at the Gabba as possible please and I would also like us to play the Crows in Adelaide, I've been meaning to make my first trip to Adelaide Oval for a couple of years, next season it is happening.

    I'd love to see us take on the Hawks at the Gabba round 1. Would be a money draw both TV wise and attendance wise. Would back our boys to win that bout as well.

    How do Port and Adelaide get to decide who he plays for each week - maybe whoever has a home game and make sure they have two showdowns and he can play for one each? Do they split his salary under both caps or does one side kind of pay a stud fee of some sort when playing for the other one.

    Would be hard for him to keep both sides intellectual property from the others as well.

    Would they be buying him a harlequin suit - Port right leg and left arm, Crown left leg and right arm and the body quarters with Port top right and bottom left and Crows top left and bottom right ... actually fitting both sets of sponsors on could be interesting too ...

    Suns are set to play 2 home games at the Gabba, one of which is rumoured to be part of a double header with one of our games.
