Huge Saturday night.
Though we will be competing with the A-league and the Sydney Derby that night
We have some 4:35pms at Giants stadium.No Sunday games in Sydney so no clash with junior AFL which is good.
No lunchtime/early afternoon games in Sydney which is also good - twilight is better for most Saturday junior sport. 5.10 against Sydney is a bit of a weird time slot though.
2 Friday night games which is good - but both off 6 day breaks and both involve travel - which is not so much.
4 doubles against top 8 teams (and the swans) - tough.
3 games at the G - better than other years.
No Tassie and only 1 each to Adelaide and Perth - again, better than some years.
Pretty reasonable draw I suppose (I’d like to have a closer look at some others before final judgement)
They get the draw of a middle six team so get zero to two top six teams, so the same as Essendon (two top 8 teams), Hawthorn (two), Port (two), Adelaide (two), North (no top six team, two top 8 teams). Dogs just happened to get lucky - at least one of them had to, and arguably North are luckier.How the hell does the Dogs only get double ups against 1 top 8 team (us)? Other doubles are Carlton, North, Port and Freo.
