Are we expecting something announced soon now that trade week and a half is out of the way. Has been released end of Oct/early Nov in past years.

I’m a traditionalist so hope the AFL keeps the Crows opening and closing the season at home.

And Carlton at home please. Unless they’re too yella again.

Well we will definitely play Port and Sydney twice.

I wonder if we played attractive enough football last season to get some prime time spots?

Or if we'll be stuck with Saturday afternoon/ Sunday time slots

I imagine the list of opponents and venues will be announced up front, with probably only the first 5 weeks actually locked in to timeslots.

Believe it will be released the end of November after the draft.

Double ups as follows -

At of top 6 it will be one so it will be Port
From next 6, two of Sydney, Essendon, West Coast, Fremantle, Richmond and St Kilda
The last 6, two of Carlton, Collingwood, Hawthorn, Gold Coast and North Melbourne

I'm pretty sure this process isn't used anymore. It certainly wasn't used for Port the last two years...

Yes it still is and is based after the finals.

They played Collingwood and St Kilda twice (finished 5th and 6th), Bulldogs and Carlton (8th and 11th) and us (18th). It is just Collingwood and Saints went both sh*t in 2021.

In 2020, each side played each other once.

So in 2022, they should play in double ups

2 of Melbourne, Western Bulldogs, Geelong, Brisbane and GWS

2 of Essendon, Sydney, Fremantle, West Coast, St Kilda and Richmond

and Us

Reckon they will get Geelong and GWS (the lower threats of that first rung).

Now for the sides finishing 7-12 they can play 1 or 2 of top 6, 1 or 2 of middle 6 and 1 or 2 of bottom 6. Any configuration is possible in that group - 1/2/2, 2/1/2, 2/2/1.

I reckon the first Showdown, Port home game, will be scheduled for Tex's first game back.

That'd piss me off

Would mean Port would've been scheduled to host the 1st showdown SIX straight times................Yet lets rewind to the 2013 offseason "But the games flip-flip every year so it's our turn to host the first game"

AFL need them to host the first Showdown coz we will turn up to our Showdown regardless when it is programmed whereas they need to maximise their crowd and easier if done early in the season.

The last time we hosted the first Showdown was 2016. We also hosted the first one in 2015 which is probably because they hosted the first showdowns of 2013 and 2014.

Alternatively, if they're having a bad year, their crowds will drop off either way, and having a injection of Crows fan to bring in ticket/concession sales might be what's needed to give them 1 game in the back end of the season a profit.

From the middle 6 i'll go Sydney and one of the WA sides, normally WC, but I might go Freo to be outlandish.
From the bottom 6 i'll go Carlton and GC, the two highest finishing sides from that bottom bracket. I wonder if we play Carlton twice will they both be away??
