More insight into the draw: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-10-26/aflw-fixture-a-clubbyclub-breakdown-of-who-plays-who

Summary:

image.png.9d1b67e0873ac4025d7513800b3ec4be.png

'Teams Not Played' happens because of the Conference system.  It is easy to see how unequal the draw is when Collingwood, Adelaide, Brisbane and others don't play the recent Premiers 🤔 whereas we play both!!

We have the toughest draw by playing all teams bar a newbie, Geelong and last years cellar dweller, Carlton.  We have two trips interstate:  Brisb and Sydney but fortunately no game in NT.

Collingwood has the dream run just one trip interstate, Freo and doesn't play either of the two Premiers.  Also get to open the season again!  Don't know what the Demons and Bulldogs, the pioneers of the sport, have to do to get some recognition!

Well, at least Carlton aren't opening the season any longer.  Their low scoring, boring game cost the competition's 'brand' last year.

It will be interesting to see who gets the prize with the most and best broadcasting time slots.  Undoubtedly, Collingwood will feature handsomely!

The challenge for us will be covering the loss of Daisy.

At least the brains trust at AFL haven't slotted a team to play in Alice Springs in the middle of summer at 5pm, and off a 6 day break like they did to us last year.  Probably cost us a spot on the ladder in the end, and probably a GF position.

9.35pm for Adelaide v Freo, in Darwin is half sensible, but why a game needs to be played there at all is beyond me.

Aside from the ridiculous conference system and the uneven, nonsensical fixture that results - I could rant forever - the positives for me are some better venues and I do like one of the new teams getting the chance to open the season.

The summer games at Casey have a fun atmosphere and though it's a bit of a hike from anywhere on the other side of the city, it's worth it to support our team at home. The games at Etihad and Victoria Park in 2019 are also good opportunities to check the Dees out in more central locations with better seating facilities.

Apparently, they haven't finalised the broadcast deal yet, which is odd considering that was what they were supposedly prioritising over every team playing each other. But anyway.
