Youre assuming the AFL cares about us. They only care that we exist because it would look bad if we didn't. They will never consider our well being beyond that when making decisions. They have teams like Richmond and Collingwood making them the big bucks and other options when it comes to expansion.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.
QLD don’t do daylight savings but it’ll be over by then, so yes 1:10 for them is the same for us.Dumb question, but I'm thinking about heading to Metricon for the first time for the R5 game against the Suns.
It says it's a 1.10pm start (AEST) - is that a 1.10pm start local time or are they forward/behind compared to in Melbourne?
What's the big deal about? Last time I checked it was a national league..How shit is four games against interstate sides from our first five, and seven of our first nine. So dull. And we have to wait until R4 to see another Victorian side and it’s ******* St Kilda.
