Is there something I have missed? 2 games at Optus but 3 long haul flights surely it's 4?

The 3 'flights' were the two trips to Optus and one trip to Alice.

If counting the actual flights yes there are 4 involving Optus plus 2 involving Alice a total of 6..

Nah Thursday is Anzac Day, Wednesday is Anzac eve.

Mal, if you have the time   I do like the Training Reports,   2024  starts today with pre season training and then the draft.

Cheers mate.

This is the DA spreadsheet.

 

Hey, WCW, is there any way of getting this version of the Dees Fixture without the red highlighting?  Would be very grateful if you can provide.  many thanks!

Our round 24 home game V Collingwood could get 80,000 if top 2/top 4/top 6/top 8 spots are at stake for both sides. A good result considering we miss out on the gate for Kings Birthday next year. 

And it could potentially be our only Friday night game in Melbourne next year.

I suspect we'll play Brisbane on Friday night at the Gabba in round 16 and possibly against the Dogs in round 21 at Marvel as there has to be a Friday night game at Marvel that weekend.

I’ve asked my Demon Army bestie who created this and I’m just waiting to hear back from her. If she can provide it I’ll post it here.

 

And here ‘tis…

She’s guessing our replacement home game will be either round nine or round 15. More likely round 15 since that’s vs North as opposed to round nine which is vs Carlton.

WCW, please tell your friend she is the BEST!!  Finding a nice, single line per game fixture is virtually impossible to find these days.  I usually have to make my own.  This saves a LOT of work!!  Cheers!

Collingwood's fixture in terms of their five interstate games....one being hawks in Tassie and another gold coast is a joke.

No wonder they won a flag.

Protected species is the dirty magpie.

I don’t hate Thursday night games. Admittedly I have no children, and work for myself and set my own schedule, so I’m onboard if they play games on Wednesday mornings. I’ll still go.

Work is for suckers.

I wish we had Monday night games.

Why are those 2 games a joke? 
All clubs have those games . 
Admittedly some haven’t had an AFL game at Launceston. Us btw.

It's because they only have five interstate games. Two of those are easy ones. Only one trip to Optus and no game in Adelaide other than Gather which all clubs have.

We visit Adelaide twice admittedly one for Gather ( but it's a S.A. team) and Optus twice.

Hawks at U TAS are not a joke ! Their record is  about 75% win and taken an MCG game off them. 
Gold Coast they beat by 3 pts at Carrara. 

Appear both to be danger games to me not a joke Beever.  Only easy one is West Coast.

Your right. But the issue for me is the longer travel with ours and also larger parochial crowds.

I don't really consider playing Hawks in Tassie is an interstate game as it's against a Vic team.

Being a diehard Storm fan she also made one with Storm games only…

Then because she’s an Excel Grandmaster and a bona fide numbers nerd she combined them coz why not? 😃

Nightmare of a fixture for interstate members looking to attend games at the G in the first 12 rounds. Would love to attend the Lions / Carlton games but having recently changed companies going to be tough to take two days off. Looks like Geelong is the pick of the bunch, luckily already got good seats to our first game.

The first 8 weeks is brutal in terms of difficult interstate trips and difficult sides at the MCG.

It is, but I think we can win our first 3, losing our next 3 would be a disaster. The short break between Port and the Crows is going to be tough. I’d take a win against Port, with potentially a few rotations against the Crows. Lions will be massive, up until the finals of 2022 we owned them for a few years, regardless of where we played them. I’d be very disappointed if we can’t get over Richmond and Geelong.

Richmond will be interesting under Yze but I agree they are in clear rebuilding mode and we should really account for them easily.

Going to Brisbane to see Radio Birdman on either June 28 or 29 and by magic MFC play the Lions the same weekend. Hoping the game is Thursday or Friday as going to Birdman on Saturday. 

Please AFL make the game not be Saturday. God only knows how many weeks in advance Round 16 onwards will be announced.

Mods feel free to move or merge as you see fit.

Bummer. The fixture is set up to and including Round 15. You missed out by one week. I asked a couple of people who have a better idea than most and they said that we likely won’t know date/time until about Round 10 which is in mid May.

PS Say aloha to Steve and Danno from me! 😁

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
