Graig its easy
Teams that finish 1-6 play each other twice.
Then all other clubs (12) once.

If you finish 6th you play 5th, 4th, 7th, 8th, 9th, twice and all others once

If you finish 12th you play 11th, 10th, 13th, 14th & 15th twice and all the others once.

If you finish last you play 17th, 16th, 15th, 14th & 13th twice and all others once.

Its not hard, its because the AFL wants 2 WA derby's twice, 2 Battle of the Bridge, 2 Queensland derby's and SA derby's.

If they stopped with the derby's my fixture is the fairest.
They also want the Pies and the Druggies to play each other twice.

Not really.
If that was the case there would be double up games of Richmond vs Collingwood, Collingwood vs Carlton, Richmond vs Essendon etc.
Its ok for in the interstate clubs to every year play multiple games but not for Victorian teams.
Port play only Stkilda and Footscary twice and they finished on top of the ladder.
Geelong finish top 4 and play North twice.
Its bullshit

we should get a nice run of away games at the G against our co-tenants leading into the finals. Korne and his mates will no doubt fire up about this.

Just sit back and enjoy it.

2019 everyone was up in arms about our last 7 games at the G. No mention of the lack of home games in the early part of the year nor the fact that we won our first final at the Gabba.

I just had a look and this year our last 7 games include 5 at the G and 2 of the last 4 away (Freo and Giants). No doubt Cornhole will still be upset that the AFL is rigging the draw in our favour. Maybe we should play our home games against Collingwood and Geelong at Adelaide Oval??

So if you finish first, you play sixth twice. But if you finish sixth, you only play first once.

Back to the drawing board, ziffens.

How kissed and how easy a draw have Geewhinge been given again. So far, Adelaide, Borethorn, Norf, and they get Blandabne and WCE at home.

They win fraudulently against Blandbane at home and then get WCE this week at home again with a plethora of injuries.

After this week they get the Swans in Sydney then us at the G. But then revert back to St.Kilda, the Suns and CWood.

What a draw....

Its the only way.
You will play 5 teams North or south of your ladder position twice and the rest once.
That's 22 games in a season.
6th position will go up 3 and 2 teams below them, Twice.
If your not in the 8, you only go up 2 times and play the 3 teams under you twice.

The zip system cuts out derby's and interstate teams always playing twice regardless of there ladder position.
If you finish top 5 you have to play those sides twice the year after.
And if you finish last you need to play the bottom 5 teams twice.

They are barely in the 8 on the back of that early draw. Can only assume they won't make finals once they start playing the stronger teams. Also won't surprise me if they get done against WCE at cat *smile* park this week.

Nah. They are gonna walk into the 8 and most likely top 4. The only teams they play twice that are of any note are us and Brisbane. (Melbourne if you want to include them.)

If their first 6 rounds weren't easy enough already, their last 8 go like this:

Essendon GMHBA
Carlton G
Dockers Optus
Richmond G
North Blundstone
Giants GMHBA
St.Kilda GMHBA
Melbourne GMHBA

Thats 6 wins from their last 8 at a minimum. They are making the 8 EASILY.

They have the easiest draw bar none in 2021.

Last 3 games of the year at their home ground???? Cornes will be outraged won't he?? How unfair is that on the rest of the competition!

*smile* me, how did they score that after making a GF last year?

There goes my hope of an early first round draft pick this year

Hear ! Hear Pidley ! Good use of multiple question marks and exclamation points. Think SHocking used the same amount inside of AFL House when constructing the fixture to Geewhinge's benefit.

Source herald sun and champion data. No surprises Melbourne are 7-0 because they have had the softest draw so far playing the likes of north, hawthorn and st kilda but they have the hardest draw for the rest of the season. We have the easiest draw for the rest of the year and if you take out our two matches against geelong, 10 of our next 13 matches are against non top 8 teams.

I can't see how we have the easiest draw when we still have gws away, Wc away, Freo away, Brisbane away and Geelong again.
Where port play Geelong at home and the crap sides away.
Champion data is full of shiit
