We get to play Adelaide at Casey and Hawthorn in Tassie for the pre season games. Casey 4.40pm on a Saturday.
Hopefully an omen.It is the first time in more than two decades that Melbourne, which finished 17th in 2019 after a preliminary final appearance last year, is heading out of Victoria for its round one match.
The last time was in 1998, when the Demons lost by 23 points to Fremantle at Subiaco, before going on to finish in the top four after claiming the wooden spoon a season earlier.
Tough game up first is better, IMO. Turn up fit and firing or get drubbed.Hopefully an omen.
Melbourne's bid for redemption next year has a brutal opening hurdle to clear against 2018 premier and Tim Kelly's new team West Coastwww.afl.com.au
