Okay, so we're a bottom 6 side officially, and the AFL said during the week that they plan on having a 22 game season next year so that means we get 2 or 3 other bottom 6 sides, 1 or 2 middle 6 sides and 0 or 1 top 6 side to play twice. For me, I'd prefer:

Bottom 6: Hawthorne, Norf, Gold Coast
Middle 6: Melbourne*, Carlton
Top 6: None

*Pending finals etc.

We haven't played Melbourne twice in a year since 2005, so I think it's time to change that if at all possible. I think, given we didn't travel there at all this year, we're likely to get 2 Perth trips next year if the fixture goes back to normal, but who actually knows what'll happen with that? (I don't think it will but I'm not willing to guess either way). If we get the usual 6 away trips:

2x Perth
0x Adelaide
1x Sydney
2x Queensland
1x Tassie (Surely it's time?)

Hawks & North twice seem a given with the "rivalries". Reckon Dees, Crows & Swans will be the others.

Wouldn't mind seeing us head to Tassie for the hawks games...assuming we aren't dealing with hubs again.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. Didn't the Australia A cricket team beat (or almost beat) the main Aus team around 20 years ago, leading to the dismantling of the Aus A team? I could certainly see our seconds team being a lot more committed.

Rethink of our three tiers:

Bottom 6: Norf, Hawthorne
Middle 6: Melbourne, Carlton
Top 6: Brisbane

2x Perth (ugh)
1x Queensland
1x Sydney
1x Adelaide
1x Tassie
