will certainly be a good measuring stick of where the team is at after those 3 gamesOur run home is playing:
Melbourne (away - Casey)
Bulldogs (home - Norwood)
Collingwood (home - Norwood)
This balances out our season with more top teams, given to that point we will have played 2 in the top 6 and 4 in the bottom 6.
It also gives us 5 out of 9 home matches.
Most of the remaining matches see the stronger teams play each other, and the weaker teams play each other. Of course the fixture should probably be more even, as a team like Geelong are getting a very easy run
There are 8 Victorian teams, only once in the 9 round season are there 4 Victorian teams playing on a Sunday. The week it occurs happens to be a long weekend in Victoria, it's not a 'real' Sunday.So every team that’s played AFLW this year on a Friday night are Victorian.
Well blow me down.
Back to the 90s for most of usThere are 8 Victorian teams, only once in the 9 round season are there 4 Victorian teams playing on a Sunday. The week it occurs happens to be a long weekend in Victoria, it's not a 'real' Sunday.
There are only 6 non Victorian teams, 3 times 4 non Victorian teams play on a Sunday.
What I've noticed is that Saturday afternoon only works in 2 cities. Melbourne (traditional spot) and Sydney (rec senior football was always small, junior football was big, but juniors played Sunday and seniors played Saturday)Look at the AFL fixture this week, only Victorian teams play across Friday and Saturday.
There must be people at the AFL who think that fans around Australia like Sunday footy but it's not a 'Victorian thing', Victorians like footy on Fridays and Saturdays and this is unique to Victoria. Same as how they tried and push Sunday twilight games and Monday night games on other states but not in Victoria, as Victorians wouldn't like it. No one ******* likes it.
Seems like after 2020 they are unashamedly doing this for Melbourne.
