I actually like most of our double ups.Pretty happy with the fixture, we have been blessed with a very attendance friendly fixture and heaps of TV exposure. So the fans will get to see plenty of us, but also allow us to grow our membership base.
The double ups are boring. Blues again. AFL trying to make a rivalry with GWS a thing. North again for the 100th time this decade. Dockers and Port are good
We are the home team for almost half those prime time slots, so we haven't been shafted in that aspect
Pies, Roos, Giants, Crows and Bombers all on Friday Night
Now to bring on the draft.
I’m not keen on Carlton round 2 straight after the Pies. Tough start. Apart from that no complaints..I actually like most of our double ups.
Every game against North is awesome to watch, so I'd love to see us double against them every year until that stops. I reckon the Dockers and Port games go alright too.
I loved seeing us give GWS a hiding last year, but would rather just face them once at Marvel each year, flog them, then forget they exist.
Carlton double up sucks. We match up really poorly against them tbh. Would take an Essendon or Richmond over a Carlton
Tigers, Cats and Eagles in the final five weeks. Tough run home. But we build up to the finals vs three teams likely to be in the top 4 (predicting GWS to be another pushing for the other spot)This is the game I'm looking forward to the most and I'm glad it's a Sunday arvo AND at the MCG. This will be a real test at that point of the year too.
Also nothing better to do on a Sunday arvo so I'll be attending.
I agree, majority of our games are Friday night and Saturday Night. If we continue to be on the rise, these time slots with give us excellent exposure. I wanted at least one more at the MCG but of course you can't get everything you wish for.Really good fixture. No qld trip, only once to Perth, finally get the Giants at Marvel. 5 Friday nights is great exposure, no Sunday twilight. Only downer is still only 2 games at MCG. Wish Carlton’s home game against us was at MCG.
As someone who was pretty skeptical about Ballarat I thoroughly enjoyed my trip their for the Crows game. I’m a convert and would encourage people to give a try. I like the fact the 2 Ballarat games are Saturday as well as some fine pubs in Ballarat for a few after game beers.Why? It will be 99% Bulldogs supporters
Nah, I remember a game against Freo early 2010s. Pretty sure that was Anzac day.Is this our first ANZAC day game since 1990 against Carlton at Princess Park? I think so. We’ll have the real game after the snooze fest Collingwood and Essendon serve up every year in the arvo.
