Yet still retain the season opener despite being putrid for about 10 years.
AFL couldnt give a flying f**k. They get a 70,000 guaranteed lock.

Its an awful way to begin a season, absolutely zero interest outside of those two clubs.

I would like to see a regular season opening fixture of the reigning minor premiers vs the runner up. At the minor premier's home ground.

For 2020 that would mean Cats vs Lions at the Cattery.

It would be:-
  • a recognition for being the most consistently successful 2 teams of the year just gone
  • a high quality match that gets everyone turned on
  • a packed stadium
  • a glimpse into whether these two teams are likely to lead the way again.
cheers

Honestly, I wish this club had some backbone. This is the fourth year in a row we have missed out on a MCG game to effectively help the Dees and their quite frankly ridiculous tilt at the NT market (having been to the last 2 Darwin games there is no doubt that the Crows are, and always will be, the preferred team in the NT)....when is enough enough? Why cant Port or Freo go there for once? GWS? Sydney?

Because exactly as you state, we have a heap of fans who live in the NT and they get to see their fav team live.

Id much rather play in Alice instead of Tasmania

We arent a great team so we won't get the luxuary of lots of MCG games, we may still end up playing Collingwood, Richmond and Hawthorn at the G
