    I'm pretty happy. Not fussed by the "hard" draw, footy changes so quickly that it's impossible to really estimate how difficult it is at this point of the year anyway. Love the number of Saturday night games.


    I think they'll improve despite Neale out. Also expecting a sharp uptick once Ross gets the boot mid-season. :rainbow:

    Bad points:
    Another 2 trips to Perth is good for the WA fans, but also not good for the WA fans as we very rarely win.
    Another trip out to Kardinya for us, both other Vic clubs get them in Melbourne. Send them all there ffs
    Only 1 Friday night game which is an away game, too many Sunday afternoon games for my/most peoples liking.
    Essendon, GWS & Adelaide are the last 3 games & the only time we play them that season, even after all the double ups!

    Good points:
    Nice amount of home games against good drawing teams
    Need to make "Marvel" a fortress for us, 12 games all up there is a good chance
    Would have preferred to play Port at AO instead of Adelaide

    Can't see where we would lose a game. 22-0.

    From a financial point of view can't ask too much more than home games against both Richmond and Collingwood. That combined with making more money playing out of Ballarat than we would hosting those two teams at Docklands means that financially should be an okay fixture.

    there is no other team
    Although, statistically speaking, we only win 1 out of every 3 games in Ballarat so with this years fixture that puts us at 20 and 2/3 wins

    Champion Data ranks us as getting the 5th easiest draw.

    More MCG games would have been good. Two is not enough as tigers get 13!

    I could not think of anything better than watching a game for real points at the Western Oval... mmmmmm
    Nope can't think of anything better at all.
    That would be bloody awesome!

    A full 7 day (or more) break in 17 of 22 games is a big plus.

    Because it the same side going down there every year. Should be rotated fairly. When are Collingwood or Essendon going to play down there?

    That is the Sunday that daylight savings ends next year - all games that day start one hour later than normal.

    CD method of ranking the fixture is flawed - it is not based on the 2018 ladder, but on points differential. According to CD, Collingwood are not a top 4 team (they finished 2nd), Sydney are not a top 8 team (finished 6th), and Geelong are a top 4 team (finished 8th).

    They have ranked Carlton's fixture as more difficult than Richmond - Carlton play 2 top 8 teams twice (Richmond & Sydney) and 3 bottom 6 teams twice (WB, St Kilda, Gold Coast). Richmond play 3 top 8 teams twice (Melbourne, GWS & Collingwood), as well as Port who were in the top 8 all season until thing went pear shaped, and the bottom 4 ranked Blues. The question for CD is how is Carlton's fixture more difficult (apart from the obvious that the Blues finished 2018 below everyone they play next year - how good or bad a team is isn't taken into account by the CD ranking).

    Only 1 5-day break is good, but it just sucks it's before our only Friday night game

    Well I suppose its not likely to be before a weekend match. Not many games on a Monday or Tuesday.

    Essendon with far too many prime time slots for my liking.

    After the last two years one Friday night game is fair enough, if only every team was treated so fairly. Draw difficulties are basically a waste of time, unless your looking at them with hindsight.

    5 things i hate about your post (not directed at you Yojimbo.

    1. Its called Marvel not Docklands
    2. Its called Mars not Ballarat Oval.
    3. Its called OPTUS and not Princes Park.
    4. Its called GMHBA and not Kardinia Park.
    5. Its called Spotless and not, well maybe only 4.

    Fans need to be more ABC like when discussing grounds. Sometimes I've got nfi where were are playing.

    As for the fixture, at last we have no games at Etihad. Surface was killing us.

    Optus is in Western Australia and is a new ground replacing Subiaco or Domain Stadium.

    Princes Park is now Icon Park and not used for AFL games.
