2019 Fixture

Recommended Posts

Alrighty...trade out of the way. Just the draft...and that's not as big for us now ;)

So what do we know about our fixture next year. Who do we destroy first for example :)

Other than pretty well certs of Tigers  Anzac Eve..Pies QB mon.. and some likely September games...have we heard or know much ?

I want the Geelong game to be a rd1 staple just like Carlton and Richmond.

GCS in Darwin so we can send our reserves team up there instead of the B22 (assuming the NTexperient is set to proceed as reported).

Good Friday night footy possibly before Anzac Eve on Thursday 25th. Maybe a Hawthorn for Good Friday??

Dockers at Optus - not WCE again.

 Talk of Round 1 Pies v Dee’s on Friday night as a blockbuster. Reported in the press a month or two ago.

And quite right there should be a Melbourne vs Collingwood game round 1 Saturday at the G. Make it a 2.00 pm start to boot. That will get the hairs on the back of the neck standing on end.And a huge win for the deeees.

Play the dockers in Perth (instead of WC) I think that will be a given given Hogan trade.  They are a waste of time at the G in terms of crowd.

Like Rd Pies or geelong - become a regualr

QB/ANZAC know our block busters.

A few more Friday night games against, Don's, Carlton (For fun), or anyone with a big following.

Hopefully not, I’d rather a home game 1st up

The good news is we should play Freo, Gold Coast and North twice that's 6 wins and the pies which means 8 wins.

they ran that rumour last year.. didn't happen

It was the Pies who were anxious to maximise the gate

Not sure the Pies are too worried about who they play in the opening round next year as long as it's a home game for them

Saw this widely reported as well - which as a general rule, when it comes to fixturing, means it's fairly probable

...but this would also be great! Would like to see this become a regular fixture too.

I think we can expect maybe one Thursday night and I would hope Travis Auld took note of our August and particularly September crowds in rewarding us with some prime time slots.

And on a side note, please no more Carlton Friday nights FFS!

Who cares about the TV ratings, I'd have thought the club would get more from a good gate. What's this notion that Collingwood always get to start the season?

Do we still play any home games at Docklands/Marvell?  If so, I'd love to make it against WC, to deprive them of a game at the G.

Correct. It was stated in the article about the 2019 requests for fixturing and that both clubs were having another crack at getting this game next season.

One thing I’ve wanted for a while but never seems to happen. Home game at the G vs Essendon, the ALWAYS seem to get the home game vs us. It’s actually getting ridiculous now.

All things aside I am very interested to see how we are treated this year.

We've shown we can get bums on seats. I understand our televised matches rate ok. We play a very entertaining style of footy. We would have to be among a handful of teams favourite for the flag. If this doesn't garner some respect come scheduling I don't know when.

It certainly had been, but I have an inkling that last year we played no home games at Docklands.  I could look it up, but I'm in a lazy mood.  Since Docklands no longer represents the hoodoo to us that it once did, it would almost be worth us playing the eagles there just to deny them exposure to playing on the G, even if we no longer need to sacrifice home games to Docklands.

We have played the eagles only once a season and on their home deck on every occation for the past two years if I recall correctly.  About bloody time that we play them on the eastern side of the Nullabour.  Alternate to denying them the experience of the G (which they probably have covered by the GF anyway to be honest), I recon it would be great to play them at the G in about Rd 4 or 5, when hopefully we are really hitting our straps and pulverize them in front of a home crowd of 75,000 - 68,000 of them being Melbourne supporters.  The umpires can give us free kicks for tripping over our own feet then, just like they do the eagles in WA.

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen
