    What we do in first 5 rounds will tell us much more as it doesn’t look a tough start. We don’t leave Melbourne in that period and I’d say we’d be a reasonable winning chance in most of them games if we’re up and about enough.

    So our last "real" home game is on Sunday July 29th? (Ballarat ain't no home to me.) That's two full months before we win the Grand Final!

    Got a few Saturday nighters, don't mind that

    Our draw kinda reminds me of our 2015 one

    So 6 interstate games + Geelong at GMHBA.

    In essence two more 'away' games than Ess, Rich, Coll and not one of them is against the GC. Shockin'.

    We only play the drug takers once again! Why can't we have 2 goes at them?

    A Liberal Pamphlet's story back in August is headlined:

    Western Bulldogs, St Kilda and Carlton among clubs to be handed easy draws in 2019

    THE six teams set to receive the softest 2019 fixtures have effectively been locked in.

    Western Bulldogs, St Kilda, Carlton, Brisbane Lions, Gold Coast and Fremantle will all benefit from their miserable campaigns when the AFL releases next year’s fixture in October.

    Some people consider 3:20 as twilight

    We have two, home vs Saints and away vs Lions. So only one 4:40pm game in Melbourne is pretty good, even though I dislike 3:20 games, just feels like a boring, drab, everyone can't be assed after a long week type atmosphere.

    The 320 leading into the news timeslot is a really shit timeslot for me getting to games by public transport, I either get there really early, or right before the siren, nothing in between is available on the Sunday timetable. I'll go to them, but easier to stay at home and watch on telly.

    Much prefer the 440 slot, though I understand it's a drag for parents who live in the burbs/country. I can at least make a day of it, have lunch beforehand or a beer etc. Similar with the lunchtime start, do something afterwards.

    At my age 3:20pm is considered almost bedtime, just a little after dinner. :p

    First glance, doesn’t look like an “easy draw” which is what we were all expecting.

    Certainty not easy on the double ups.

    Geelong, Collingwood, Brisbane, Fremantle and Gold Coast, with Brisbane and Freo tipped to improve.

    I think all bottom 6 teams get 3 double ups with other bottom 6 teams, 1 with a middle 6 team and 1 with a top 6 team.

    Yeah I hate the late Sunday games too. Feel like I waste my weekend waiting for the game to an extent. Also doesn't give you the weekend to bask in the winning glow (or move on from the loss).

    Why is one Sunday vs Suns 2.10 instead of 1.10?

    I dont think we could expect any better on the double ups. If we cant get our share of freo, bris and gc then it wont matter who we are playing.

    Geelong arent the force they once were and we will see how collingwood back up, although i suspect they will be up there.

    Only one double up from top 7 is a pretty good result.
