Sunday arvo slots in Melbourne are where the garbage teams get sent so no real surprises that Hawthorn v Essendon have been relegated to that spot. Probably would’ve been at Marvel except for the AFL having to hide the Aints v Dockers game somewhere

Oh boy, Hawks will be up and about for this game.

They will be rubbish but will have their sights on us, fark we better win this one to open our account

Not so, although your comment on the quality of the teams is not in question. Late in the season (from rnd 19), the AFL started scheduling some big games realising Melbournians will turn out in big numbers

If we don’t destroy Hawthorn in Rd 1 you can put a fork in us.

Gonna be a long year if we’re copping the sundy arvo from round 1, fark

When was the last time we had a home game for Round 1?

Usually people get a bit nervous 3 - 5 days before a game, not 3 - 5 months.

I don’t care about the Dawks, l hope they are up and about for this match, and pull out all the old tricks, like getting Dermie to try and fire them up in advance again, because it worked so well for them this year. They will stink up their season in R1, and l am already making plans to be there to see it happen.

Not not on this occasion. Round 1 against Hawthorn was requested by Hawthorn in their fixture requests to commemorate their 1983 Premiership 40 year reunion. Their home game so never was to be at Marvel.

Only good thing apart from a winnable away game at the G in round 1 is likely home game in round 2, so avoiding the round 2 trip to Perth hopefully a reality. Although not a certainty!

Brisbane at the Gabba in Round 2, just wait and see :rofl:

I can’t believe people find a way to complain about an afternoon game in Melbourne against a traditional rival at the G.

Sunday twilight is the issue for me if I was planning on going.

Hawthorn vs Essendon 3:20pm Sunday

Lol gayafl this game should be friday night,saturday afternoon or Saturday night

It’s 13th Vs 15th from the previous season and probably similar finishing places for both next year.

It’s perfectly reasonable.

Saturday afternoon or night maybe. But look at the Friday night game. They’re not putting Hawthorn v Essendon ahead of that
