Indeed, would've preferred that game to be at Marvel. We've only got the one game at Marvel next year against the Saints. In saying that, I'm pretty happy with the fixture overall tbh.
Any lack of marvel games, is due to our supporters. From and AFL perspective we have a poor attendance rate there even for away games.

It's great from a 'strength of schedule' perspective and we also get some nice prime time opportunities. The home games for QB and ANZAC are great for the bottom line too, especially if we start the season okay.

We also have great turnaround times. No 5 day breaks or anything like that, most are at least 7 days.

The Sundays suck but we deserve it after 2019.

Round 11 v Hawthorn is a 5 day break

We also have 5 x 6 day breaks which all involve interstate travel

Five days before the Hawthorn Friday night game.

I know making the MCG a fortress is nigh on impossible (except if you're current day Richmond squad with 100,000 members) but we at least need to have a brand that holds up well there. Even in the 'glory' days of 2017 and 2018 we'd be studs at Marvel and anywhere on the road then play like pox in our home games. To be fair the likes of Tomlinson and Langdon were recruited for this purpose and we still have the Wagners.

It really is worth a scroll through all the other club boards just to see how they have reacted to the draw. Especially our Friday night games. Crows and Bloos gave me good chuckles.

Time to do what i always do and compare against are contemporaries

• 1x Thursday Night
• 6x Saturday Night

• 6x Sunday
• NSW x 11

Carlton 16th
• 7x MCG (Not an MCG tenant)
• 5x Interstate (Sydney, x2 Adelaide, WA, QLD)
• 0x Friday Night
2x Thursday Night (1 by Default)
3x Saturday Night

Melbourne 17th

Having a look at it, it honestly looks like we got any games Carlton could have got on a Friday in a trade for Saturday night games

Can't be assed to looked up the FTA

The AFL stuffed up the round 1 fixture IMO. There’s no better club to capitalise on pre-season optimism than the MFC, so naturally they should have us play an interstate team at the G and milk it for as much as they can. If WCE win comfortably in Tim Kelly’s big debut then it’s easy to see why a lot won’t show up for the home game in round 2. Which is also against the side with the lowest supporter base in the competition.

Good to see there’s a local game against Port, that’s a loss I’d like to see avenged.

Would have liked 2 games against Brisbane especially one at the G but realise it’s a tall ask with how rarely they play over here. Happy to be playing the easybeats twice though.
