AFLW: 2022 Fixture

I think a bit tough. Adelaide, bears and Freo all at their home grounds.  The ladies bogey side, the dogs, at whitten oval.

We play 2/4 of last years bottom 4 teams, whereas Brisbane play them all.

But then who knows, some teams will improve and some be worse. Particularly in the women’s game, you only need one injury to a key player and your chances of winning the comp goes down the gurgler.

Wondering if the fixture on the AFL website is the latest?

Bulldogs have played 6 games and by my count are scheduled to play 3 more in rounds 7 to 9.  That is a total of 9 games for the season.  (They round 10 game vs Freo was brought forward and played a few weeks ago). 

However, I can't find a substitute game for their round 2 postponed Lions game...

I must say the current round has produced some disappointing contests. 

With four extra teams coming in next year, the AFL needs to look at the disparity in strength between the top half dozen clubs and the rest and even consider a two division competition for a couple of years until things stabilize.

Yep. Surely we'll play Geelong next season... could even still be in 2022!

At the time DIO made her post the round 10 fixture had not been announced.

Well my fixture by Demonland was posted earlier on my phone than DIO and Wonnabeeri on the 2 Dec comments. 

Would not have been much in it but Dland fixture for 10 rounds inc. R 10 was at 6.45 pm and the other comments after that were in my phone. DIO'was 8.07  pm. 
But it's weird worrying about a Dees game potentially in 2023 when we haven't completed 2022. 
Maybe  unless she lives in Geelong!!

Yep, I hadn't caught up with the Round 10 release. From memory, I'd heard they were going to keep the last round unfixtured for flexibility.

I'm just interested because it's a quirk in the fixture that we've never played Geelong in four seasons. No big deal.

The AFLW fixture is broken but it can be fixed.

Some posters have noticed that in the hastily put together redraw of matches, the Western Bulldogs who have played six games to date, have only three games left on their fixture. Geelong have played seven matches but are drawn to play four more including the mysteriously unplayed Round 7 game v Fremantle from Sunday.

That game is the key to the puzzle. It should be scrapped and replaced with a game between Freo and the Bulldogs which would then ultimately lead to all teams finishing the season on 10 games. The question for the AFLW is when to play the game.

By late cancellation of the Geelong vs Freo game the AFL seem to have woken up to the problem.

You have answered the mystery by noticing the extra Geelong game and that a Freo vs Bulldogs game will fix the problem.   It can be played in round 10 as both teams currently have a 'bye' according to the afl website.

Bulldogs are playing well so it could be a key game to determine the final ladder order. 

 

Edit:  I just noticed that Freo and Bulldogs played their round 10 game on Feb 1 which Freo won.  So there must be a mismatch elsewhere in the fixture, at least in the one published on the afl website.

Hopefully, the clubs know who they are playing...

I think the AFL have snookered themselves.

To keep the season going they rescheduled games but also mixed and matched teams that weren't originally scheduled to play each other.  Somewhere in those mixes and matches they have miscalculated the number of games.

The result (according to my summary of the season) all teams will have played 10 games except the Bulldogs who will play 9. 

Can't see a way of fixing this that will be fair to all teams.  The teams they haven't played are Lions, North, Saints and Carlton.  It wouldn't be fair to the first two who will be in finals to play another game for no points.  And it wouldn't be fair to teams in the finals for them to play Saints or Carlton for whom it will be an exhibition match and virtually gift the bulldogs 4 pts. 

The best thing that can happen is that after round 9 the Bulldogs are well and truly out of contention for finals or cannot progress higher up the ladder if in finals, so the 10th game doesn't matter and it is forfeited. 

I assume someone at the Bulldogs has alerted the AFL to this rather glaring anomaly.

Yes - just realised that - well there is a problem.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
