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.

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle
