The whole fixture is built this way. The first priority of the AFL is to maximise attendances and viewer ratings, but they run out of ideas when scheduling the last 3 or so games every round. So they zero in on the teams that will present the least impact on attendances/ratings for those lesser games...like the Crows.Do Port Power use one of their requests to host the first showdown each year. It has gone beyond a coincidence now.
We seem to get the Sunday arvo Showdown in the middle of winter every year now.
If it isn't a Port Power request is the AFL trying to prop up The Powers crowd numbers?
There are 46 H&A games at the MCG this year.Disagree. They should not get anymore than 12 games at the G. We get 12 at AO. It needs to be the same to be equal and fair for the Vic teams. If 2 Vic teams then play in Tassie or Nt then so be it.
I agree it is better to play the stronger sides at home. Playing the weaker sides at home sets up too many complacent-banana-skin type games.Exactly. I don't think enough attention to where and when you play teams has as much influence on a result as the straight up head to head contest. Would rather play all the tough teams at home and the weaker sides away.
Playing most of the weaker sides at home is like being given a mulligan after you hit a hole in one.
Dont be shy, tell us what you really think!!!the AFL can SMD
This fixture is hideous.
Alice Springs, Shitmania, and that Geelong shithole. I'm shocked to be sitting here.
