    Bored of lack of trades or sick of trade talk/negativity? Then let's discuss the Doggies fixture!

    Set to be realeased in roughly a week and rumors usually float around beforehand.

    Until then I have a few questions for you!

    What timeslots are your preferred to attend the footy? (There's a poll too)
    What requests would you make for the Doggies fixture?

    I hope we have at lest 2 Friday Nights.
    Feature on Thursday Night (but not home game)
    Ballarat games vs Gold Coast+ Port/Fremantle.
    Zero Sunday Twilight.
    Play Carlton Twice given how little thats happened.
    Good Friday/North twice.
    Avoid two Perth trips.

    At least 3 MCG games
    Ballarat games to be in April and close to end of season
    Absolutely hate all aspects of Thurs night footy - school holiday are the only time it should be played if at all

    I'm sure I'll think of others

    I love night games, just a better feel to sport and the crowd atmosphere for some reason. Maybe the cold, thin winters air carries the crowd noise more. Playing under lights kind of makes it feel its a big game.

    That being said, expect to be let down with the fixture for 2019. Won't be as many night games as this season and expect to end up with a heap of Sunday games again.

    Teams The Bulldogs Have Played Twice Since 2009-2018 (10 Seasons)


    7
    - Kangaroos (2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018)

    6 - Eagles (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, 2018)

    5 - Lions (2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017)

    4 - Demons (2013, 2014, 2015, 2018)
    - Saints (2009,2012, 2015, 2016)
    - Swans (2010, 2011, 2012, 2017)

    3 - Bombers (2010, 2011, 2014)
    - Cats (2009, 2012, 2016)
    - Dockers (2009, 2011, 2016)
    - Magpies (2009, 2010, 2016)

    2 - Crows (2010, 2013)
    - Giants (2014, 2017)
    - Hawks (2010, 2011)
    - Power (2015, 2018)
    - Suns (2011, 2014)
    - Tigers (2009, 2013)

    1 - Blues (2018)

    Coding = Premiers, Top Six Team, Middle Six Team, Bottom Six Team


    Break Down and Analysis

    • Total of 55 double up games over the past decade
    • Kangaroos, Eagles, Lions dominate the double up games. Hope the AFL do not schedule us to double up vs these teams in 2019. YAWNNNN!
    • Have only doubled up with the Blues just once in the past 10 fixtures
    • Out of the 55 games, we have doubled up against, Top Six Teams 17/55 (4 Premiers), Middle Six Teams 20/55, Bottom Six Teams 18/55
    • The above shows we have had it extremely balanced when it comes to strength of fixture vs teams we have doubled up against
    • Longest double up drought is Hawks, last double up was in 2011
    Going to predict we land at least 3 of Suns, Crows, Tigers, Dockers, Hawks as our double ups for the 2019 fixture.

    No Thursday night games or Sunday twilight games and GC/Port can play Freo/Waste of Space in Ballarat.

    Wouldn’t mind a Thursday or two.

    Don’t expect any Friday’s

    Hopefully Ballarat games are against Freo and port on Sunday’s

    there is no other team
    My preference would be to start with a Friday Night home Blockbuster against the Suns and then finish with an away game up in Gold Coast to help freshen up before the bye and finals.
    And every game in between against the Suns anywhere......

    Away Cairns game in July vs Suns would be nice.

    Don't mind the 1.30 Sunday games either. Much better than 4.30

    Didn't Wood end up playing the whole game on him?

    A decent start to the season. Not underestimating the Swans but we’ll be a solid chance to win, at home and in prime time with a decent crowd. Looking forward to it!

    A very big crowd for the opener next year. It’s great to have a Round one home game that is not stuck in the middle of the Easter weekend. This hasn’t happened for at least five years probably much more.

    Swans usually a bit flat early in season. Could be a good time to get then. Inb4 Swans fans in crowd still complain about free kick count in 2016 GF whenever we get a free kick in round one...

    Pleasantly surprised. Home Saturday night game against a high profile club is about as good as we could have hoped for.

    Agreed. Sydney are always competitive so it will be a good indicator of where we're at. Win or narrow loss and we should be in the mix for finals. If it's anything like the disaster against GWS in r1 this year, we'll be very concerned. But I expect it will be a close game.
