You'd think our game vs Freo will be in Perth. We played them @ G in 2018.

And Sydney game up there, GWS game in Melbourne this time. Same with a trip to Brisbane
True. I want to play Port at the G also. And do it when we're actually good.

Our double ups will include
2 or 3 of
West Coast
Collingwood
Melbourne
Hawthorn
GWS

1 or 2 of
Geelong
Sydney
Norf
Essendon
Port
Adelaide

0 or 1 of
Bulldogs
Fremantle
Brisbane
St Kilda
GC
Carlton

LAST TIME WE DOUBLED UP
Adelaide: 2018
Brisbane: 2017
Carlton: 2017
Collingwood: 2018
Essendon: 2018
Fremantle: 2017
Geelong: 2017
GC: NEVER
GWS: 2017
Hawthorn: 2016
Melbourne: 2012
Norf: 2016
Port: 2016
St Kilda: 2018
Sydney: 2016
Western Bulldogs: 2013
West Coast: 2009

I'm hoping more than anything that we'll finally double up against GC.
I reckon the AFL will want us to play Collingwood twice to help the bottom line.
I also reckon they'll put us and Melbourne in a late season game in hope that its a top 4 clash, so there's a double up.
Have no idea about our other two, probably North as an Etihad team and GWS because why not
Due to Anzac Day scheduling, either Melbourne/Essendon or Richmond/Collingwood will need to be on Good Friday and the other on Thursday. Feel like we'll get it because they'll want to pump it up - cue Norf melts too.

So filling in the blanks, bold means home

R3 vs North, MCG
R4 vs Hawthorn, MCG

I think our double-ups will follow a 3-1-1 or a 3-2-0 split for the 2019 season. I expect a 3-1-1 split and for those double-ups to be:

Collingwood (Top 6)
West Coast (Top 6)
Melbourne (Top 6)
Essendon (Middle 6)
Western Bulldogs (Bottom 6)

We could end up with Gold Coast as double-ups instead of Bulldogs from the bottom 6 with the whole Lynch factor, but they are likely to go with which team gave us the most trouble from the botton 6, and that team is Bulldogs.

Great work. I couldn't be bothered to do as much work as you did.
Added in predicted attendance for each match if we stay in Top 2 form.

AFL would be mad not to look at doubling us up against the other 3 top 4 sides. I picked Geelong just for the saltiness that would come from Cats fans playing a home game at the MCG against us yet again. We should get the Carlton double up as its a bit weird that the only times we'd play them over a 2 season period is in Round 1 in each season.
