Can we no longer bemoan who we do/don't play twice etc. If we are not beyond that now our rebuild needs a re-tweak. We should be ready to go against anyone/anywhere.
I won't be satisfied until we play the Ararat Eagles 22 times.

Its a sad and ever growing story with regional towns dying, its a fact you probably won't change without sustainable population growth in the outlier townships.

Collingwood game really becomes a key to our season. Get that win and we open the chances of going into Port at the G being 3-1. With that sort of positive momentum Port and Brisbane games in Melbourne and the season could be off to a bloody hot start!
One game a key to our season? Please......

Lose that pies game and we go into Freo 0-2 and a must win game. Lose that and you know the track record of sides who start 0-3

Win it and like I said 4-2 becomes very gettable going into some very winnable games.

It sucks that we aren't playing a bottom 4 side twice, but I'm still quite happy with our fixture. Excluding Port, all the teams we play interstate will be somewhat easy to beat and although the start of the year will be difficult, we should be able to cruise towards the top 8 in the back end of the year. Overall, very satisfied with our fixture.

Next year, I expect 13 wins minimum from us.

22 total games - 4 comfortable (30 point plus) losses (usually to a top 4 side or the rare choke e.g. the Hawthorn game this year) = 18. Out of the 18 games left, I expect to win around 75% of them and lose the remaining 25% due to the occasional and unfortunate loss by a small margin. 18 * 0.75 = 13.5, so 13 wins seems like a good figure to aim towards.

This is a great draw for us, it really is. We should have no complaints at all.

Collingwood, Freo, GC

*, Bulldogs, Melbourne, Hawks, Sydney

GWS, Crows, Freo

Collingwood, Norf, St Kilda, Gold Coast

I would consider the above blocks of fixtures to be very generous. Richmond/Filth, Port/Brisbane and Geelong/Filth are literally the only times we play two top 8 sides from 2020 in consecutive rounds and the Filth don’t scare me and they show up twice.

What a great draw.

Get GWS and Pies twice who are likely to be more vulnerable than in recent years. No Geel, Rich, West Coast or Bris twice - and play Lions/Eagles only in Vic and Geelong is our home game.

Travel is limited and a good run home except Port in Adelaide.

If we can't make finals on the back of that, we should be disappointed.
Well said.
More or less my thoughts as well.
