1. Yes, the media will, as they did often during our 2017 premiership run.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?
Round 7 was at DocklandsCollingwood 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.
Bad for whom..?!?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.
So how does that explain the cats and the scums fixturesThe AFL fixture has been well explained.
The first three brackets of four have relatively higher degrees of difficulty.
When you finish 13th for example, you start to receive an easier fixture, like we did in 2016.
