Every day not Sunday?

Recommended Posts

Went through the draw again and noticed we only have 5 Sunday games (not including the Round 23 lottery)

Surely this has to be the least amount of games on this day we have had in years?

I for one cannot stand Sunday games so this is a good development.

Paging @Supermercado...

I have no problem with Sunday games. Would rather those than Thursday and Saturday nights.

I wish all our games were Friday night and we win and I can enjoy the weekend.

Other than that my preference is Saturday day, Saturday night, Sunday 1pm. Hated the Sunday 4:40pm slots.

I have no opinion of Thursday night but have no problem with them as long as we have a sufficient break prior to it.

Well from a selfish point of view I didn't mind them so much and I could play golf on Saturday without rushing. That didn't help my score much.

Your right though and without so many "graveyard" times (3:20) we may get more families coming along.

One man's graveyard is another man's pleasure dome. I quite like the 3.20 slot but dislike the 1.10 pm start as it takes out the whole day. And I still don't like Thursday nights (with the exception of the Thursday before Good Friday and Anzac Eve, should it fall on a Thursday).

For families, Sunday 4.40pm and night games are a stinker. 

Also for country folk who have a long journey home by car or rail.

Oh, I forgot, the scheduling is for TV, streaming and those sports fans with their wide screen, high definition, radiation emitting screens.

Glad you realised who pays the bills and calls the tune  Ernest. For a while there I thought you imagined the AFL had spectators intetests at front of mind.

Good thing I saw this coming in advance and rebranded the site in mid-2018.

No good for my actual life, 1.10 games are my favourite.

Friday night wins are the best! I get to spend the whole weekend thinking and talking about how good we are.

If we lose on Friday night then I take all of Saturday to remain [censored] off but am over it enough on Sunday to enjoy the last of my weekend.

Losing on a Sunday with work incoming on the Monday is a real downer and I dont know how my family put up with me to be honest.

And Sunday games make it impossible for anyone from WA to come over for games for the weekend, especially with school age kids.

Just been filling in the organizer for next year and have been able to pencil in 4 Casey games on Sundays following Melb games.

Awesome!! Casey Sunday games at CF, PP, TBBO and VP.

Might need the flak jacket for Victoria Park!

It takes me 1½ hours to travel to the MCG from country Victoria by train. I like 1.10 starts as I don't get home too late.

I play club competition golf on Saturdays, so I like Sundays for football.

Each to his own I guess. Someone likes every time slot.

Wish I hadn't retired as a Firefighter, the gear would have come in handy.

I do remember accidentally head butting a guy with my helmet one night at a job in Smith St. pretty sure he was Filth supporter...well he was missing some teeth anyway.

The only aspect of a 'late' Sunday game that I enjoyed was if we had a big win, often jumping a couple of places higher on the ladder for that week (to start the coming week off in good or better status) when all the other teams in the comp had completed their offerings from the draw. It was particularly pleasing when we jumped over Port the Snort and the Belly Ache Crows, living here in Adelaide, surrounded by 'expert' comment and incestuous interest in the AFL. We did a bit of that leap-frogging last season; and by hell, it was bloody wonderful.

    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. The pleasing thi

    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

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt
