*glances over to Geelong’s 1st round fixture and starts laughing*
Won 7. Lost 2. Drawn 1.
Never lost to them in Sydney.

Not sure why you're laughing. Clubs that have good sides don't fear certain fixtures and I don't fear the day of the year we have the Giants.
A good team, but beatable.
It’s better to know what your clubs future holds than to be ignorant about the present. And in the case of Geelong, both thoughts are vomit inducing stuff.
Que? Might need to elaborate here.
How does Harmes get a 5 year contract?

Henderson now delisted. Decent trade period shifting him, Menzel AND Yarran for Plowman, McKay, Cuningham and all the steak knives
He's a good tagger tbf. 24.5 touches, over 5 tackles and 4 clearances a game. As a run with player is rather solid. Tough little bugger too.
I'd happily take him off the Dees hands.

5 years though?

Couldn't imagine his game will go to heights that we haven't seen so it's not like he'd have cost that much more than they've locked him in for in 3 years time.

If they envisage him being there in 5 years time what does it matter? I doubt they're paying him massive amounts.
He'd be your standard 450-500k B grade midfielder.

Our draw can GAGF. Tasmania again. Gold Coast again. 2 trips to Sydney and Adelaide without playing any of those 4 teams here as a double up. All that is missing is a bullshit trip to Darwin again.
Ours is worse. Tassie, ******* Alice Springs and Potato Park yet again. Us and the Swans would have to be the two teams that get sent down the highway more than anyone. We'll do well to avoid bottom 4.

Len Hall game being ignored by the AFL yet again is a crock of shit, also ridiculous that we have 1 FTA game for the season. Would be nice if we could get a game on Friday sometime in the next ******* decade as well

Tough start. Start in Sydney and two trips to Perth in first 6 rounds.

Eagles, Lions, Giants, Dogs and Hawks is a hard set of double ups. Hawks will make finals in 2020 imo and suspect the rest will be around the mark.

Only just realised that about the Len Hall game. There is no reason that shouldn't be on the Saturday night every year.

I couldn't care any less about Fridays though. Friday night football means nothing to me and I don't watch it unless we are playing.

I quite liked the setup they had around 2008-2015ish, where games were generally on Saturdays or when ANZAC day fell on a suitable day have it on the day
Play a better brand of football.
the brand of football that we played when we actually had our forward line last season wasn’t actually that bad, certainly no worse than others - case in point the game we had against Adelaide last season that finished 36-50 or whatever - the commentators that night pointed out that Adelaide actually made the first move in putting men behind the ball and generally were fairly defensive last season yet the narrative after that game was far more about Freo’s brand.

I don't mind, it's my birthday that day so a win is good. Also the problem with having it on the Saturday is we come back from Hobart having played on the Sunday. The club would rather a 7 day break after that. Geelong are also playing the Sunday before, it makes sense.
