A pretty good Double up selection, 4 teams that didn't make the 8 from last yr. Granted a few will improve.
Out of interest, where are these easy wins? I can count 6 games I'd consider better than 50/50 to win. If we don't win round 1 we won't be winning until round 6. If we split our games Vs Bombers, Adelaide, Freo winning only home games we're likely a bottom four team again. Just where we are at right now. I'll be hoping to see development from our boys.. That's what excites me for the season 2021, and a crack at a highly rated draft .In terms of ease of opponents it’s probably the best fixture we’ve had in 10 plus years. We might not get a heap of blockbuster time slots but the last few years we haven’t really deserved them
Agreed. Looks a fair draw. Doubles against sides out of the 8, except Richmond. No complaints
Should it though? If it had been our turn to host it in 2020 and we missed out on the MCG ticket sales would we not think it was fair that we get the chance to host it again this year to make up for it?Easter Monday should be our home game
Its Essendon's home game. They are playing it at their home ground. End of storyWhy doesn't Jeff come out & say what a cluster F##K this is!
We were screwed during 2020 re:- the fixture ( & most years ) & now this?
2 big clubs at a piss ant capacity stadium!
Play the Freo. v Melb. over there in Perth & swap the West coast - Gold coast the other way. Fixed easy!
Out last game in Melb with crowds was roughies farewell game in 2019! yes that far back.
We'd get a minimum 70k at the G v Essendon Rd.1 if crowds are at full capacity. Plus as stated we haven't had a home v Ess. for an eternity!
Don't tell me the AFL aren't sticking it to us OK!
Enough is a fu**n enough!
If the club doesn't come out & shame headquarters, seriously punters are going to pull up stumps.
This is probably the AFL's agenda for us anyways!
Carlton won the spoon in 2018 and RichmondHappy overall, but not sure too many bottom 4 sides ever get scheduled to play the reigning premier twice.
‘it’s the way of the world. Like grand final entertainment. It could be the best performance in history, and it would still be slammed (unlikely I know)I didn't think our draw was too bad. Starts off pretty tough.
As for most of the rest of you, all I'm reading is... rant... rant... fixture... rant... spit.... curse....
