Home game against GWS first game. Sweet to play Toby Greene to get laid out. I like to see that.
Coz Collingwood wanted a piece of the shiny reigning premier, but when we failed to go back-to-back, the Pies ditched us. They even got the home ground rights in the 2017 game, flogs. Use us for novelty factor then when it comes time to returning the favour, they fu** off.Does anyone remember if there was a reason the idea of a round 1 v Collingwood fixture every year fell away?
Maybe I was imagining it, but it felt like both parties were on board with making it an ongoing thing, but it lasted one season.
Happy to have it as a Collingwood home game every year and just get the benefit of guaranteeing a 60k+ crowd (preferably on a Friday night) every season.
Otherwise would very much look forward to GWS at home as our 2020 opener.
Very quiet on the leak front. Fixture is released this Thurs.
The leaks are usually just garbage anyway. However, I have a very reliable sauce that says the first game will be Richmond v CarltonThe leaks will occur each day. Saints v North already being reported, suspect a few more leak in the next 48hrs.
My source states that the ANZAC match will be changed to Christmas Day.GWS at Marvel, away as well hopefully
1 trip to Perth v Freo
1 visit of WC to Marvel
At least 4 Friday night games including 2 home against either Richmond, Collingwood, Carlton or Essendon
Early interstate game, only 1 after the bye
Double ups include Crows, Norf, Freo & Melbourne/Gold Coast

50/50 I say. Essendon fans seem determined that they will be the ones playing on that day. Then again their Good Friday match only attracted a few thousand more than ours did. We'll have to wait and see on Thursday.Any chance we play north in the Good Friday game next year?
