    Carlton getting 4 is what irks me, 4 friday night games for a team that finishes in the bottom 4 is laughable. I do hope we stop playing in the NT soon regardless of whether we get a better fixture.

    6 x 3.20pm Sundays can get stuffed too.
    With a further 4 Sunday fixtures

    Well the AFL have ****** us with that fixture!

    7 interstate games
    2 home Sat games for the year (one of which is a twighlight)
    No Friday night games in Vic
    No home game in Victoria for 7 weeks between rounds 5 & 12
    No Sat night games in Victoria again


    Good to see the prime times spots go to the teams on the rise like Carlton 4, St Kilda 4 & Collingwood 3

    Looking more at the teams finishing order from last year and after the bye rounds we will need to have the skates on because it is not an easy run home. We make final we will have earned it.

    10 Sunday fixtures, literally no night games in Victoria and that horror run of no home games. ****s sake

    EDIT: except Anzac Eve of course but still.

    Based on the results this year the run home is tough as well. We'd want to bank a few win early.

    I'm just baffled that 16th placed team gets 4 Friday night games while 9th placed team gets 1.

    This is the worst part of it for me.
    Obviously it's more about making money than presenting as fair a draw as possible for the AFL.
    The 'Blockbusters' excuse is invalid as Collingwood stink yet still get 3 Friday nights along with their blockbusters.
    4 for Carlton and a few for the Aints is a disgrace.
    We've got one - and none of us can even f**** attend!

    The aints cant draw crowds and arent any good. So how do they end up with 4 games on a friday night?

    Not impressed with our fixture. The run home is crazy for us. If we want to make finals we need a dream start. We cannot afford to wake up towards the end of the eason and have to win every game. This will be a real test but I'm excited.

    Not complaining but I was under the impression that we were going to start switching home games with QB from now on?

    Collingwood wants too, looking at this I suspect that the AFL told them where to go.

    Deeply pissed off at the fixture. I just can't hack that many Sunday games these days. I'm either pissed off and unbearable or hungover and unbearable at work every ******* Monday.

    Whilst 5 Friday night games at the G is an improvement on 2017, there's still way too many at Etihad for my liking. The quality of those matches leaves a lot to be desired as well.

    I think there's a real concern about crowd dropoff at the G for night games in June/July due to the cold.

    We also have 8 Sat night games and only 3 Sunday games. Best prime time fixture we've ever had.

    Pretty good considering no one turned up to your Friday night game this year
