Exclusive: The Crows will again open Gather Round next year with a blockbuster clash at Adelaide Oval, facing Melbourne on Thursday night. 
 

farrrrk !  Are we just the AFL punching bag again.  

As mentioned above, Carlton and Bulldogs drew the short straw in 2023.

Us and Essendon have drawn the short straw next year.

Two other clubs will draw the short straw in 2025.

I personally don’t see the issue.

Not sure its been mentioned but one of our major sponsor Jaguar will no longer be continuing in 2024.

I've just been told this from a contact who has input in the manufacturering of our guernseys.

Hertz will take on the back of the gurnsey major sponsorship.

Club looking for Short sponsorship to replace Hertz. I 

That will be a horrible looking logo.. big yellow patch on the back

As a general rule, if your Round 1 game is at home, your final game will be away and vice versa. There are a few exceptions eg. North might have a home game at Marvel in Round 1 and a home game in Tassie in Round 24. Eg. 2 MCG tenants (excluding Melb) might have home and away games at the G in the first and final round - eg. Carlton, eg. Carlton eg. Carlton. When a team gets a home game at the start and end of the year (rare), it will be an interstate team and the following year they may have both as away games eg. Port.

In the pre COVID 2020 fixture we got stiffed.

Round 1 in Perth and round 23 in Hobart (although the fixture got torn up for obvious reasons.

Yes we drew the short straw next season but that is so predictable. I said on DL a few months back we will play Crows or Port next season in Gather Round. Its so predictable.

Last year Collingwood got 10 days break before Gather round. We got 6  and we lost.

Will lowly Hawthorn play at the Cattery. Theyre well overdue but will they?  We'll know soon enough.

Dees to the Gabba again and Norff in Tassie- our injury graveyard?

I think Crows will get  red carpet service next season due to AFL making amends for the Swans debacle.

Just eyeballed now. Gather Round,  Pies v Hawks  AO

Hilarious.

Too early to call a change of 💔 from the AFL fixture Tin men. But a premium position given the local interest and venue. Demons can Fly in and Fly out with the Grange Hermitage. Crows can warble 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', as a lament, accompanied by ukulele from the Adelaide Oval dungeons. Blues can tip toe thru the dewdrops seeking a humility transplant.

The double header this time doesn’t involve an Adelaide team which I assume is good for allocation. 

yes whoever designed to double header was a bit dumb last year. Be surprised if it gets many more than 25k though unless they give out lots of free tickets

Not that I particularly give a [censored] but Richmond v St. Kilda at Norwood. Would have had that game at Adelaide Oval and moved the Geelong Doggies game to Norwood. Or for [censored] and giggles have the Doggies play at Mt Barker………wherever that is

One day someone will be able to explain to me the point of the "gather" round.  Till then I'll continue to wonder why (surely it's not to make money?).  There is enought difficulty in arranging something even approaching a fair draw given all the constraints that exist already.

Whats the point of the Gather Round?

Its an additional 9 games of mostly dull non marquis games played in a small Aussie rules state. Whats it promoting? The Gather Round should be played in NSW and Qld  if at all.

Its a free lunch for Port and Crows getting an additional home game.

I expect the Crows to finish deep inside the eight next year.

MFC better have a big pre season.

Great. I’m flying to Melbourne from Alice the same weekend of gather round, hoping I could see the Dees play in Melbourne, something I haven’t done in about 10 years. Thanks AFL FFS. Even any game would have been good…

Hope we play at home the following weekend when I fly home.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
