    That's at odds with our CEO saying we didn't get any of our priority requests I would have thought

    This is what the delay was over. Hawthorn got a Friday night for kicking up a fuss.

    No one wants to watch a game between 2 teams that can’t even make the 8

    AFL have to fixture the games there as part of the sponsorship deal. Who they fixture and when the games are would be more what the Hawks would as about.
    Same with who we play at the G and requesting no home games at Marvel.

    So Tredders in the media says it's Hawks fault the showdown got moved, our CEO days we didn't get the fixturenwe wanted
    Hmmmm

    There are 3 matches at the MCG that weekend and only 3 days allocated to that round.

    Tredrea seems somewhat confused.

    Tredders obviously has no clue since Hawthorn vs Collingwood on any other night would mean 2 MCG games for that day.

    Whingers are gonna whinge but

    I feel like Hawthorn should be paying more rent for the space in your head.

    Yeah a clash of MCG tennants that have played recent close clashes and both finished top 4 last year would be awful
