2019 Fixture

Recommended Posts

West Coast, Collingwood and Richmond twice.

We play Gold Coast and West Coast back to back interstate. West Coast off a 6 day break.

Very stiff draw.

Great draw.

But alas, there will be some that will complain.

Play Pies, Tigers and Eagles twice. Pretty tough in my view.

Good fixturing and money generation though with home games v Bombers, Tigers & Pies.

Good Friday night exposure, home games against Bombers, Tigers and Pies

The consequence of finishing higher on the ladder.

I know it will take some getting used to that sort of thing.

Last 6 games include 3 top 4 from last year, Sydney and North. Cats in Geelong again is poo, as are back to back interstate games on opposite ends of the country with a 6 day break.

Honestly an unfairly difficult fixture. Double ups against Teams 1, 2, 3, 7, and 16. With the current system, the only possible way that it could have been harder would be if we played team 13 twice instead of 16.

If were good enough we will still make the top 4.

4 day break between round 5 and 6

 

That’s the worst of the lot, but Richmond are in the same boat.

Could potentially expect one of West Coast or Collingwood to decline based on the trends of the past few grand finalists and perhaps Sydney bottoms out. Should still be capable of top 4

Luckily we play St Kilda the week before so that we can rest our "A Team"...

Bloody hell, they're making us earn a top 4 finish with doubles against the Eagles, Pies and Tigers..

On our day we can beat anybody so let's hope the boys rise to the challenge.

Yep and that little anomaly of copping the Wednesday evening Anzac game will happen every 6 or 7 years.

I guess the fair and reasonable thing would be to fixture our game on the Thursday or Friday but they've awarded that to Pies and Bombers.

If we're to be a serious Top 2 team, we'll be 5-0.  Top 4 team should see us 4-1 at worst.  Anything less than that and we will be in the middle tier again.

I can see us being 10-2 or 9-3 going into the bye, then winning 5 of the first 6 after the bye.

based on last years form and those of the teams we are playing  we should be able to get 14-16 wins based on this draw

13 free-to-air matches. Anyone know off the top of their heads what it has been in previous years? Mind you, I'm only interested in a sub-set of free-to-air matches being those when we are not playing at the MCG.

As an aside, it amuses me that the way someone has put together the graphics that it looks like in Round 13 we're playing the AFL. Not sure if it's home or away, but these days I think we'd win.

We won 14 this year (exc finals).  I see this draw getting us 15-16 wins.

Great fixture for us.

The only negative is playing West Coast at Optus... Again! We haven't played them at the G since 2014.

Deservedly tough draw. We are a top 4 side. Other teams will not look forward to playing us.

Huge from a financial perspective and brilliant for sponsors.

Some huge games against big Victorian clubs will make for some terrific games and big game atmosphere.

13 FTA is massive as is the fact we gte get six stand alone FTA games (3 Friday nights, a Thursday night, the ANZAC eve game and QB). That's a brilliant result.

Only a quick look but looks like an awful fixture, will go over it tonight. I don't care about TV, I just want to win.

I don't understand people being upset about QB. The home game should have always been rotated. Maguire could have easily been saying he didn't want to play QB against Melbourne. As we've been a rubbish side for the last decade.
