If we’re down the bottom end an easy draw is actually a bad thing as it could result in a lower draft pick.

Unless we bank a lot of our double up games and have a pre mature crack at top 8..

It's about National coverage and the opportunities that come with it.

What, and Kayo isn't national? Literally anyone with a phone and coverage can pick it up and watch it anywhere.

Free to air is a dying outlet.

They probably had a massive whinge that they got the first game of the season taken away from them, so the AFL gifted them a soft draw to shut them up.

Disregarding the fact that it was completely nonsensical that they got the first game of the season to begin with anyway.

Weak response by Silvers. Just toed the company line about what a great opportunity it is for multiple clubs to get the Friday timeslot.

You really think so? National TV coverage is critical. It's a massive boost to a clubs ability to sell advertising.

I think you are overestimating the number of people who are willing to pay for Kayo.

What do you expect him to say? We aren't in a position of power at the moment.
Just once, would it not be too much for us to grow a set and call the Vic bias out?

Every single Friday night game has a Victorian team playing. Every single one. That's not the draw, or just how it pans out. That's deliberate.

There are TEN Victorian teams. They are the ones that have bigger TV audiences. Melbourne based fans have been starved of footy for the last two seasons, while we have all been lucky enough to get to some games. I reckon any club whining about it this year would be seen to be petty. Now, if they do the same next year, well then yes, I'd be complaining too.

It's the same every year.
Your argument is just "I'm sorry. I was just really angry/drunk. I won't do it again".

Of course it will happen again!

And Melbourne hasn't been 'starved' on footy. It's on TV! They still watch it. Same as the rest of us.

So they are biased every year unashamedly and we all sit down and take it up the kyber and the first time they have something (unrelated really) to be felt sorry for we are supposed to drop to our knees and cry... Let them rot always.
