Full 2020 AFL Fixture >>

=================
Anyone heard anything yet?

We know Lions V Pies on Easter Thursday and Saints V Port last weekend of May in China.

The obvious ones like ANZAC day Easter Monday etc.

Unfortunately it will probably be Richmond V Carlton opening the season so hope there is a good NRL game tgat night.

It’s understood Kennett and McGuire are holding up the release of the draw.

Kennett’s angry about Hawthorn playing 5 games instead of 4 in the 2:10 Saturday time slot, while McGuire’s unhappy that one of Collingwood’s 8 Friday night games is in round 16 instead of the requested round 17.

The fixture may be delayed until early November.

Not as an opener though, unfortunately for the fans we'll be subjected to the same old boring carp.
I don't like a GF replay in round one, build up the tension a bit. Something like the prelim teams from prior year on Thursday and Friday would be good but playing the other team, so Richmond v Collingwood and GWS v Geelong next season for example.

be nice to actually have 11 home games next season, not ten plus an away 'home' game in farkin china.
and seeing how port can't even take full ownership of it how about pissing them off and getting someone else up there. or play somewhere we might get just a bit of a crowd, like denpasar.
can't see why the club can't just denounce the chinese regime - the afl would drop us from the game like a hot potato.

So Fn sick of Richmond Carlton openers, absolute sh!te every time.
F Carlton off and get the pies in there.
Have you actually watched these games recently? From 2013 there's been some close, tense games. Carlton has all off season to prepare for us and typically come out flying. How about in 2018 where they were 5 goals up in 10 mins? How about last year when we were 40 odd points up before they closed and were looking to hit the lead in the 3rd? I actually think this game has been very entertaining for years while Carlton are still hyped before the grind kicks in and they go to shite.

I thought Port are paying you like a million bucks so it is your home game.

Why else would a club agree to playing in China???

Yes, they've been ****

2 matches out of 12 Round 1 clashes have been decided by less than 2 goals.
Yeah sure there has been some ebb and flow in a game (as there is in 90% of matches), but everyone knows the outcome.

7 years since Carlton have beaten Richmond, 8 years since they've done it in round 1.
It's a joke.

Hopefully Richmond get as many games at the MCG this season as Collingwood did last season. And hopefully Collingwood and Essendon finally play away games at GMHBA.
I would like to see the West Coast Eagles get 7 consecutive home games to finish the season. Then listen to all there bitching when they complain about how hard their draw is in the first 15 weeks.

Mate we just beat the runners up by 89 points, doubt there is a team in the competition who can get within 2 goals of us. Have to play someone. Best just relax, sit back and watch the premiers go about their business.

No, the trick is to ignore it even though it’s released the year prior, laugh at them if they are struggling with injury etc mid year, then complain once they get their list back and start winning.

So true. No one said boo when the fixture was released last year. No one said anything when teams “worked out our game plan” in the first half of the season. Then everyone cried like a Scott brother once we got our players back and started winning games. If you get a chance have a listen to 5aa podcast Bickley and Rowe chatting with graham Cornes on the Monday after the grand final and Rowe trying to come up with a solution for where mcg tenants play their games. True Mensa stuff.
