The rolling fixture was heralded as a chance to ensure the best fixtures were on Free to air tv every week.
There are basically 2 or 3 big TV games each week. Thursday night, Friday night and Saturday night.
Instead of picking the best performing sides the AFL have placed big Victorian sides in the key slots repeatedly despite they stinking the place out every week. Essendon, Collingwood, Hawthorn etc.

Essendon should not be inflicted on anyone other than KAYO viewers until 2023. So sick of watching these useless wasters in big game slots every duckin weekend.

Instead we have to watch them next weekend against Richmond, and on a FRIDAY night for their next game against Carlton.

In 2 weeks time there is probably one of the most anticipated game of the season, Melbourne v Freo, 1 v 2, and it’s on KAYO at 4:30 on a Saturday with the mighty Gold Coast v Hawthorn getting the plum Saturday night slot on seven that week.
This was scheduled just 2 weeks ago.
Inexcusable from Travis Auld and his fixtures committee.

The following clubs should not get near a FTA game for the rest of the season:
West coast
Collingwood
Essendon
Hawthorn
North melbourne


Why are we not seeing Brisbane, Melbourne, Fremantle, St kilda, Sydney, Carlton, in games against EACH OTHER?
These are the leagues best teams and yet we have to watch this shite served up by Essendon every duckin week?
It’s the worst set of fixtures on primetime so far this year to open a season that we have EVER seen.
Travis Auld couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery.
Hawthorn have had mostly Sunday in

Hawthorn games by day so far as fixture released:

Friday: 5
Saturday: 5 day, 3 night
Sunday: 8
Monday: 2

Mostly Sunday and Sat arvo games with a more recent boost to Friday games. I know the meth is cheap out west, but maybe take a break on the glass barbie.

Also, no one, not even the most parochial state in Australia, WA, cares about Fremantle games.

Most of those Friday nights are games that haven't been released yet :)

At least the Perth games are starting later in the afternoon meaning that more people can actually see the ball than in prior years.

No excuse. Two sides who missed finals last year. You didn’t need to be a rocket scientist to predict how s**t the eagles were going to be given the way they ended last season.


your club has been a rabble for 30 years
bit rich Docker supporters demanding anything to be fair

Yea I'm sure causal AFL viewers would really love to be watching this no scoring contest.

Hawthorn v Suns is actually a lot more appealing than Eagles v Dogs tonight


Hard for the AFL to account for how many bad teams there is in the league this year.

Lol
The premiers losing their first game in 17 matches to a fellow top 4 side in a major upset should have been on national TV tonight.
Obviously.

They got ******* belted.

Would've been worth it over the other games, but it was a poor game.

Freo beat them by 40 points + they lost two of their key defenders aswell (May/Petty).

All 3 games were terrible, there wouldn't of been a pack of supporters, unless they were Freo fans or hated the Dees that would've went to 7 and watched it (over any other game.)

You could probably say West Coast and Dogs gets more views and makes more money than Suns/Hawks (seeing as the Suns have little to no fans). But it doesn't matter cause all 3 were terrible. The Freo/Dees game was good till the injuries happened and after that it was expected, if they didn't win they'd be given s**t.

Gotta say they got this one spot on. Dogs tying a long standing record with sixteen individual goal scorers. The Dees/Dockers snoozefest conversely only had 11 between the two sides COMBINED.

Finger on the pulse as usual AFL. Great work.
