The AFL may be slow in releasing the fixture for next season, the opening round is being reported online

First up we'll be heading to Adelaide for a match against this year's wooden spooners - a bit surprised as I was thinking we'd be heading to Sydney to face the Giants

I think the AFL have come up with a pretty good round 1 match of games

4 of them are 50/50 in my opinion Magpies v Bulldogs - Giants and Saints and Demons v Freo

Also Hawks v Dons another toss of the coin ( and forget about Geel - proper Haw supporters hate Ess (and for that matter Carlton as well ) a hell of alot more than they hate the Cats

Tigers v Blues - had to be the traditional opener ( given the crowd size - and the badly needed money that generates ) - only hope Blues have got is a round 1 upset - they wont beat them later in the year when Rich are firing on all cylinders

Nth v Port and Ade v Geel - id rate them together - youd expect the away teams to win - however could be a round 1 upset

Only 2 games where youd think would be certain winners are Eagles at home over Suns and ditto Lions at home over Swans

Really didn't like this idea when I first saw the fixture, as I saw embarrassing upset written all over it. However, I now find myself coming around to the fact that it's not too bad a draw at all, really.

Gets an interstate trip out of the way straight off the top. Against an opponent that has just finished last, and must still have a long way to go to actually become a good team. Also means we may be somewhat more likely to get them again at home later in the season, which would only be a good thing in terms of our draw. And may mean we don't get Port over there as well, which is likely to be a very tough match-up again next year.

In the end, if we drop this one, we'll have nobody to blame but ourselves. And an interstate win to start the season could actually set us up quite nicely.

So, on second thought, roll on March 20...

Interesting fixture - from the look of it home games are split 9/2 between GMHBA and the MCG

Doubles ups are - Brisbane, Melbourne, St Kilda, Richmond and North Melbourne
9 home games in Geelong (including the last 3 in a row heading in to finals) - Brisbane, Nth Melbourne, West Coast, Gold Coast, Bulldogs, Essendon, St Kilda, GWS and Melbourne are the opponents
2 MCG "Home games" - Hawthorn (Easter Monday) and Richmond
6 Interstate trips - including North Melbourne down in Hobart (2 in Adelaide, 1 Sydney, 1 Brisbane, 1 Perth and 1 Hobart)
16 games in VIC - 9 in Geelong, 6 at the MCG and once again just 1 game at Marvel

I hate GMHBA games in the lead up to non-GMHBA finals, but....don't mind all the rest .

Pretty good fixture all things considered. A couple of observations...

1. Didn't Port get the free win against us in 2019? Surely the AFL could be a bit more considerate and share it around.

2. Relegated to playing Geelong at Kardinia = Essendon, you officially suck.

3. I don't like our chances pipping the Tiges away, but I'm confident home ground advantage will get us over the line in the return bout.
