Freemantle will get a lot of sunday 3.20 games (5.20 eastern). Get used to it.
Yeah I know they will, it's still stupid though. It's one of the worst timeslots of the season. Saturday afternoons would work so much better for our supporters. Hopefully we get some Saturday night games though like we did this season.

I think they’ll give us Carlton in Round 1 and Collingwood in Round 2 followed by GWS at the MCG in Round 3.

Round 1
Thursday: Richmond v Carlton

Round 2
Thursday: Collingwood vs Richmond

Round 3
Saturday night: Richmond vs GWS (Grand Final rematch)

Our fixtures are fairly static early on so this is what I am expecting.

As for the topic of this thread, all the away non-Victorian sides that share a ground would be scheduled to host I imagine.

Just put us against your mob then. Make sure your coach doesn’t sook it up too much though.
Excellent response, did the AFL write that for you or was it one of your fellow call centre operators? So how is the weather in Manila today?

I know GWS's Grand Final performance was rubbish but it's a bit harsh not to even give them a game in the first round don't you think? lol

I like it. But they won't waste a showdown on Rnd 1.

Maybe....
Western Bulldogs vs Port
Adelaide vs Saints
