Agree re: the Sunday 3.20pm slot.

Our destiny is in our hands TBH. If we can maintain good form through the first six rounds (beating GWS and Hawthorn, meaning we're 4-2 at the worst, is critical), we give ourselves the best chance of a Friday or Saturday night slot (or a Thursday if those persist).

The Round 8 Sydney game is surely a chance if we can both keep our early season form up.

After todays result the Sydney game now looms large as a possible prime-time game.  Any sort of win tomorrow could get us across the line.

Ain't it grand that we can have this conversation at last? 

I just hope the team is as fired up and as hopeful as its supporters!

Aside from the impact on our attempt at finals this year, this is the big motivation for tomorrow. Get ourselves to 3-0 and sit alongside the Dogs and Sydney, and amongst contenders like West Coast, Port and Richmond, as the sides deserving of prime time TV.
