I’m pretty happy with this and not reading anything into the alternating R1 games - last season was a write off from a fixturing perspective and although the weagles played at Optus the stadium was empty.

It pretty much ticks off most of what I was hoping for:

- against a team we should be beating

- in Melbourne at the G, rather than Marvel

- not the Sunday arvo game at the end of the round

- makes sure we get a seven day break (unless we’re on the Friday night in R2)

Bring it on.

I'm guessing the Derby is Round 3 or 5 and we have 3 home games in a row which is why we are starting the season away again.

Oh, of course West Coast are playing the Gold Coast Suns at Optus Oval on the Sunday. This is an absolute load.

The AFL's cash cows are always going to get preferential treatment, unfortunately that's just how things are in a league that prioritizes revenue above all else

FWIW I'm excited for us to be playing at the MCG first up against a team around our level

I comprehend exactly what you're saying, and you're most certainly correct, but Gold Coast, at Optus Stadium?!! There's an immediate win to commence the season with!

You doubt the skills of Matt Rowell

Not so sure, didn’t the Eagles start year slowly last year?

Gold Coast have belief and real talent, don’t be surprised if they win it.

Matt Rowell is one player - he alone will not topple West Coast at home.

He could do it in his lunch break!!

Gold Coast is literally the last team I would want to play in round 1. They will be at their best (however good or poor that may be).

Reckon we are more likely to beat them on the GC in August than to beat them at home in March based on Dew's tenure.

I think that Gold Coast start their seasons well. Maybe they’ll come out firing and shock the Eagles.
This. I don't care who West Coast plays, but if we can avoid the Suns in the early rounds that would be good. We should be celebrating having a game at the 'G'.
