2017 Fixture



Recommended Posts

Perhaps this is a little premature, but what are your early wishes for the 2017 fixture?

Mine would have to be:

1. St.Kilda at the MCG (so we can beat that hoodoo)

2. Geelong at the MCG (haven't played them there since 2014)

3. West Coast at the MCG (last time was round 2 2014)

4. Richmond twice

5. Essendon round 1 Friday night (saw that Essendon was proposing this. I think it'd be an awesome way to start 2017 with a win at the G on a Friday night)

Wouldn't mind starting with Hawthorn at the G on a Friday night. The old guard V the new. Get them early in the season too.

Anzac Eve Tigers plus return Friday night match

QB V Pies with a 2pm Saturday return match

Bye after Darwin match

No Geelong at Geelong. Time for others to go there

Home game V Bombers with us in our proper jumper

Some fairness in home game schedule V big Vic clubs

Last game of the year at the G

13 G games

No they can get stuffed.

That will be a big celebration of their returning drug cheats

Can we play them round 15

I want to see every side get at least one home game on a Friday and a Saturday night.

I want us to not play ANY home games at Etihad. 

We have two marquee games in Queens Birthday and ANZAC eve, so we're ok there. 

With our ladder position we should see two matches against Richmond, Collingwood, St Kilda, GCS, North or Port.  Something around that range. 

If we saw something like this I'd be pretty happy.

My biggest bugbear with the fixture is that everybody wants to play Friday night games and very few clubs want to play Sunday afternoon games.

So wouldn't it make sense to schedule two games each Friday night and reduce the three game Sunday arvo commitments to just two games.

That way you could even decide mid-season which Friday night game is on free-to-air and which is not and the chances of primetime massacres are reduced - remember Carlton in 2015.

If that were the case then I'd like us to have five Friday nights, five Saturday arvos, five Saturday nights, five Sundays arvos, one Monday (QB v Coll) and one Anzac Eve (v Rich).

I've got no problem with teams earning the right to play on Friday night as long as its consistent. Consistent being Richmond miss out next year and Collingwood are rained in.

Probably thinking too much about this but what if you had finish say top 10 to get a Friday night game. Wouldn't be a popular idea but on the whole there was a lot of junk games this year.

my wish is that essendrugs are not gifted the softest and most financialy attractivel draw of all clubs

i have zero confidence this will happen however

 

This will 100% happen.  Along with the Cats who get the easiest draw every single season.

I'd like to play Essendon at the MCG on Sunday 1 May. Why? Because Anzac Day falls on a Tuesday in 2017 meaning Collingwood and Essendon will only get a five day break if the AFL ensures all teams play the next round on the traditional Friday/Saturday/Sunday slots. I'd also be happy if it were to be Collingwood, but given we play them on QB, I assume playing them in May would be less likely.

No "home" games at Doglands, and particularly no home games there vs clubs whose home is at that soulless hole

A bye after Darwin - fair for both teams involved. 

Home game v drug cheats but not round 1 when they will be "buoyed by the return of the victims of injustice". 

More Friday night G games than those who finished below us in 2016 NB Collingwood, Richmond, Carltank and EssUndone

No playing Geelong in Geelong

Any home game at Etihad is to be a Friday Night game so as to make the most of having to play there.  Against Adelaide I guess?

No Friday Night games for Essendon.

Keep ANZAC Day Eve.

Saints at the MCG

Bye after Darwin.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
