    Check the fixture and see for yourself. I thought the top 6 were supposed to play each other twice.

    What other mistakes have they made?

    The top six don't play each other twice?

    I thought they were supposed to be next season.

    If not, never mind.

    Why didn't West Coast play Richmond in Melbourne during the 2018 season?

    ****** if I know. Maybe for some reason, I read a comment on here about how the top 6 should play each other twice or that they would and got it mixed up with reading it from some news source somehow.

    I think that's what should happen. The seventh return match can be for derbies and rivalries.

    Cause the fixture makers were on a bender?

    Not too dissimilar to me before making this thread?

    Maybe I'm being too hard on myself. Maybe I should stop acting like a Sidebottom.

    I agree it's a bit weird, the two stand out teams H&A last year, it's a game everyone wants to see, why not put it on twice 2019?

    Top 6 teams double up against 2 or 3 of the other top 6 teams. From that pool we got Melbourne, Collingwood and GWS. No room for WC. We played them once over there in 2018 so it’s about right that we play them once over here this year.

    Yeah I never really care about the fixture in advance, but like the OP I thought the same.

    My understanding was that each club played each other once (17 games) and 1-6, 7-12, 13-18 from the previous year's ladder positioning doubled up, making it 22 games.

    Obviously judging from comments I have been mistaken. Can someone shed some light on this? Was the above ever the case?? Or have I completely just made this up in my head!

    Cheers

    Yep 21 games against teams that won less games than us last year, and 1 against a team that won the same amount. And 22 games against teams that lost more than we did. Pretty bloody easy.

    This has never been the case, because there are some guaranteed double ups no matter what the ladder position is of their respective teams (eg western derby, showdown, NSW/Qld derbies, Essendon v Collingwood etc etc etc).

    The grouping of teams of 1-6, 7-12 and 13-18 is simply to ensure teams are more likely to double up with those roughly around the same ladder position.

    A massive centuries long conspiracy by the Viccos, working in conjunction with the reverse vampires and the RAND Corporation, to do over Western Australia.

    It pays not to think too much about the fixture. Sydney are rostered to play Carlton twice. There's no good reason - probably the last two names left in that round.

    Most WC supporters are glad we are playing them at the G. We were sick of hearing that we only flogged them because it was in Perth.
