Walsh Brownlow is at least feasible.
Carlton 5th is having a laugh. As is Fremantle in finals.

Freo are a good young team with a decent coach who have drafted very well.

Underestimate them at your own peril

Pretty sick and tired of playing Richmond in Round 1. Just AFL marketing and boring at this stage

Bit pissed we thrown away our Collingwood opener. It was great exposure for us.

Plus giving Melbourne the opportunity to rub more salt into the wound.

Shitness all round.

I guess the one sh*t thing about a GF rematch in Round 1. One team lost the GF, so they have to sit and watch the flag unveiling and then potentially lose. And tbh, whether you win and lose in Round 1, you have still lost given the pre-game festivities.

Yep. Nothing in it for us to gain.

Plus Wednesday nights can fu** off.

2pm Saturday…great..best time slot to go to the footy

Unfortunately those time slots are as rare as hens teeth these days.
TV Viewing/Ratings is all the League cares about these days.

I would like more games with Freo, North etc in prime time slots on FTA and far less Collingwood, St Kilda etc (beats me why the Saints keep getting juicy FTA prime time games)

Was gonna rage at hosting the Dons but having to go to Melbourne but forgot we’ve demolished a stand

Mate you have a guaranteed 4 points in the bag, can't remember the last time Essendon beat Geelong, whereas we have been Richmond's bitches for years.

You should be used to it after doing it for 25+ years.

We have close family friends who lived in Geelong so from the late 70s and throughout the 80s we used to go to all the Ess/Cats games. Came back for first time last year and we went to the pre season game at KP, couldn’t make the game later in the season. Felt great to be back at the ground …real feeling of old surburban grounds which I miss. Don’t mind if it becomes a regular thing.

Carlton would make the finals quite regularly if we could just play Fremantle every week.
