I think we have a pretty good draw, expect Freo to come out with a good start to the year especially the first 10 games. Winning more than we loose.

A Friday night game finally!!


Our double ups look very very favourable next year

Demons are stiff but WCE should drop, Carlton are about the same as us, Saints are garbage, GWS are flaky

Honestly think it's the best fixture we've had in years.

- No Tassie, NT, SCG or GABBA games.
- A couple of nice stretches without travel (Rds 2,3,4; Rds 12, 13, 14)
- Play Richmond at Marvel (which they hate)
- Only game in Adelaide is vs Crows
- Double ups against Eagles, Blues, Saints and Giants - if we stuff them up then we ain't playing finals
- Gold Coast not in first six rounds

Probably only thing that would make it better would be one of the double ups being against North, Hawks or Crows.

Just realised that they have dumped us on Fox on the Friday game, f*n lol



The bright side is that our first half of the year is by far our easiest part of the draw, start well and then we will be rewarded with Friday night to finish, if we are only half wins and half losses by round 10 then we won't want a Friday night in the back half as those teams will embarrass us

So much for playing at home round 23 if we play away round one....
I think we spend two near months without flying during the year, which is an odd thing to be happy about in a league where some clubs will spend three quarters of the season driving past the away venue on the way to the home ground before the coffee is cool enough to drink.

I don't know why Friday nights is such a focus? It's not as though one or two FN games per season are going to change around your teams' financial or marketing fortunes. Unless there's a radical about-face from the AFL, we'll never get more than one or two per year. Making finals would trounce it for the club being in footy fans consciousness in that regard. Even if we look at kids who are in the allegiance-flexible stage, a lot won't be staying up for the full game (and given our crapola history in FN games, maybe for the best).

Don't honestly care about the draw. That's for people who want to whine and make excuses. The comp isn't fair and won't be for a very very long time. Glad our players don't have the attitude of some here otherwise the season would be over already. WWMCA=What would Mundy complain about? Nothing. Put up or shut up. Just win, baby.

Hard to not feel a bit shafted comparing with the eagles who finished ahead of us


Melb > geelong
Gws > Richmond
St kilda > GC
Carlton > Adelaide

One of the double ups is the crows.

No it is not. Carl, GWS, Melb, Stk & WCE.

But what’s it matter really? We get Adelaide first up - no Tex, we get GWS without Toby. Swings and roundabouts. If we’re good enough we will make the finals. Good teams/clubs don’t make excuses.

If it was Adelaide twice over Carlton we would be jumping for joy on here, unfortunately it isn't

There is no way in hell we should be playing away in the first and last round. It is one or the other. Someone has gone and ducked up massively.
