So, we know the AFL likes to create storylines and drama. Given trade week results, and ignoring Carlton v Richmond which will never change 🙄, what are some likely round 1 matchups we will see?

North v Port ?
Gold Coast v Adelaide?
Freo v Bulldogs?

Grand final replay again would be really terrific (yawn)
Kangas vs Port in Melb should be fun (although not for a particular someone).
Hopefully not Cats vs Dons (Scott vs Scott) in round 1 again. Didnt go too well this year.
Maybe Bris vs Kangas so their new coaches can battle it out...

Friday night: Richmond v Carlton MCG
Saturday arvo: Adelaide v Hawthorn Adelaide Oval
Saturday arvo: W. Bulldogs v St Kilda Marvel
Saturday night: Fremantle v Brisbane Lions Optus
Saturday night: Collingwood v Sydney MCG
Sunday arvo: GWS v Essendon GIANTS Stadium
Sunday arvo: Gold Coast v Port Adelaide Metricon
Sunday twilight: North Melbourne v West Coast Marvel

Tiges v blues
Lions vs pies
Dees vs cats
Dockers vs dogs
North vs hawks
Swans vs port
Bombers vs eagles
Crows vs suns
Saints vs giants
Lions v Pies is the Easter Thursday game so if the round did start at Easter the Lions v Pies would be above Richmond v Carlton

You'd think Freo - Bulldogs is a good chance, given the EF appearance and Rory Lobb factor

They do that then the wet afl apologists are complaining about fans booing by the end of the season

No game in Perth and two in Queensland. Interesting. Swap the venues for Port v WC and GC v Ade and it's pretty solid, although I think there'll be 2 games in Melbourne on the Saturday too. Put North vs GWS on the Saturday and Adelaide vs GC on Sunday.
