    So time to think about the fixture for 2019. Other than the obvious omg minimum 6 games in Melbourne what would you like to see? Hopefully we get Easter Thursday back.

    I would love Gold Coast, St Kilda and Carlton twice as it should mean 6 wins there.

    For a bit of fin thought we could have draw preictiction comp.

    Who will be the 5 teams we play twice
    Who will we play round 1?
    Guess the 5 teams we play twice?

    Hopefully no games in Tasmania and we get to play the Hawks at the MCG.

    Carlton twice too - despite being an absolute rabble since 2014, they at least have somehow managed to become our bitches

    Want/wish-

    1) Easter Thursday v Collingwood at the Gabba.
    2) Play the Dockers, Blues + the Suns are a given twice.
    3) 6 games in Melbourne including at least 2 at the MCG v big clubs eg. Pies, Dons, Tigers.
    4) As many home Saturday twilight or night games as possible.
    5) As many big teams come to the Gabba as possible, it would be fantastic if our home games were- Suns, Magpies, Tigers, Bombers, Demons, Hawks, Swans, Eagles, Dockers, Blues, Crows.

    Crows very likely. Apparently they request to play us at the Gabba for corporate reasons.

    I think we can almost be assured of that given the AFL tends to find a way for two teams to play each other twice on the back of a high profile trade.

    Six games in Melbourne (not including Geelong) is what most Melbourne based fans expect, you know, given the merger agreement and all.

    our hawks game is our extra against a vic team.. just now in tassie like a few years ago saints in NZ
    Any truth to the rumour why its always us in Tassie, that the Hawks deal with Tassie was for vic teams. As we where still in Vic at the time we where one named?why its always us?

    AFL could really get our bandwagon going if they give us a nice start to the year. Blues and Suns to kick off the season

    Double ups Suns, Blues, Freo, Bombers and Hawks sounds good

    Is it wrong that I want Collingwood home and away?

    I know they're ahead of us, but I want any and every opportunity to rub their faces in the dirt or mud.

    Gold Coast and Hawthorn twice, then I don't have any other preferences. Maybe, possibly Sydney twice. And Carlton to see where they and we are at.

    Freo set to host Essendon round 1, I also imagine Richmond V Carlton will happen. So that's 4 teams we wont play in round 1

    Yes it would be nice to get a softer open to the season.

    - Suns, Freo and Blues in first five weeks

    I would hope the club focus on pushing AFL to schedule home games aimed to build up fortress Gabbattoir

    - Easter Thu or a Friday night blockbuster
    - mostly Sat twilight games
    - Sunday afternoon games through July-Aug vs the Melb teams to maximize climate advantage

    Not sure if it's legit. Would be nice to have a home game round 1 but have heard Freo will play the Bombers (well, want to anyway).

    Marvel Stadium haha

    A March afternoon game in Brisbane - the heat might be a big advantage.

    Wish it was against a Tasmanian club for that reason. Sorry, I mean North Hawks.

    I dare say we'll be matched against Collingwood, Fremantle, Carlton or St Kilda, Gold Coast and one other top eight side twice this year.
