Next year marks 30 years since Tiger supporters rattled tins to save our mighty club.
Wonder if the club and media will acknowledge the occasion as much as everyone has with the Doggies?
1. Yes, the media will, as they did often during our 2017 premiership run.
2. It was the Bulldogs - not the media - who chose t make a deal of it and appropriately so. The media jumped on, as t's a good story.
Amazed at the proliferation of posters, who incessantly whinge when another club is afforded publicity for an initiative, or media in general. There's hundreds of media covering AFL, I'm ceratin all clubs get their fair share of deserved coverage.

Collingwood at the MCG up until Round 12 this year

Rounds 1-4 - MCG

Round 5 - Gabba

Rounds 6 - 9 - MCG

Round 10 - SCG

Rounds 11 - 12 - MCG

That's 10 games at the MCG and 2 away games. Not that different from our 7 in a row...

For the rest of the year they goto Optus, Giants Stadium and the Adelaide Oval. The rest are at the MCG.

5 interstate games.

We travelled for 6 interstate games. So they get the extra MCG game.

We get 13 games at the MCG this year, West Coast, Fremantle, Port and Adelaide all get 12 games at their home ground (11 home, 1 away), Collingwood get 14. It just looks bad when the AFL have to juggle 7 teams that all play home games at the same venue and one team ends up with 7 of them in the final 7 rounds.
Bad for whom..?!? ;):cool:
