2024 Fixture


biggestred

Recommended Posts

Well prepare to be disappointed.

That, one away game with Essendon and an interstate game in the last round are MFC fixture locks every year. Personally I'm hoping for less night games yes good for club exposure etc but I hate attending them other than Anzac eve and finals.

I'd like a fixture that is level to the average AFL fixture for a change.

- Stop giving us Geelong trips

- Stop giving us 10 day breaks when we should get a proper bye

- No Thursday night games in Melbourne (wishful thinking)

Nothing surer than 

1- we play Geelong once in Geelong 

2- we play West Coast once in Perth

3- we play Essendon as the away team 

4- we get to play an SA team during gather round 

5- we get multiple 6 day breaks in a row 

6- we get back to back interstate trips

Yes biggestred - Pies, Richmond, Essendon, Hawks, Blues, GCS, GWS, Swans & WCE to play at Geelong for the next 20 years, North to play at Alice (they need the cash). I want 15 games at the G, 2 at Marvel and 6 Interstate games for a change.!!!

Honestly i just think teams should alternate where they play, home and away.

Dont forget ....

Norff in Tassie

No mid season bye ( usually about 9 days for us)   13-15 days for other clubs.

Lions at the Gabba

MFC surrender a home game to NT

I think ive covered everything

oh wait !

interstate game prior to Gather round.

Lots of travel early in season to unsettle our team.

I think thats it.

I’d be happy to have the entire fixture revealed at once. The floating fixture isn’t necessary post-Covid.

You have my vote. Booking the Alice game this year was a nightmare

This.

If they are happy to have a season go on a month longer than it should and have all these dead rubber games then show some guts and be prepared to have some of these crud games on a  Friday night.

We've finished 6th so we are still in the top bracket for fixturing which means we will get 2 or 3 of the top 5 twice.

My expectations are Collingwood, Brisbane and Carlton twice from the top bracket, Geelong and Adelaide from the middle bracket and North or Gold coast twice.

We will get Geelong twice so they can send us down the highway and get a game at the G against them.

Port on the Thursday night of Gather round and potentially West Coast in the Alice to ensure we never get them at the G.

13 games at the G (3 aways being Richmond, Collingwood and Carlton), 1 at Marvel and 1 in Geelong for our 15 Vic games.

Wishful thinking that we wont get Geelong at their grotty little pub ground.

Of course, but that would be fair and equitable, so no way will AFL have that.

You forgot our mandatory annual Geelong trip.

Things I’d like to see:

1. No trip to Geelong or, in the alternative, Collingwood, Carlton, Richmond or Hawthorn also going down there

2. A proper bye - no more Thursday night game after KB

3. More travel pre-bye than post-bye

4. A few more afternoon games

5. West Coast in Melbourne

6. Port Adelaide in Melbourne

I expect we may get some of these but not all.

I also expect to see a tonne of Collingwood and Carlton in prime time, and too many Thursday night games.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
