Did every club's CEO come out and released a press release on the fixture?

Did Gold Coast come out and say how thankful they were for AFL's assistance with priority access to state league players?



In a year where our on field performance was diabolical, we need to sell the message of hope and positivity, this is the time of year to do that. The press release is a way to open communication and the media will have the conversation with the club and this give us the opportunity to continue the message of optimism from trades, draftee and off-field appointments.

Because then we'd complain about why we're not saying anything.

St Kilda CEO stated they don't deserve prime time games and will let their footy do the talking. Also thanked the AFL for the draw.

Of course Essendon* came out thanking the AFL but weren't happy they are not playing more Vic teams at the MCG (they are never happy).

https://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/clubs ... 1b6029bba5

Quote:
Essendon*, another Victorian club with a big supporter base, will have four Friday night games and two on Thursday night.

The Bombers dropped out of the top eight this season after a disastrous 2-6 start and their 14-year drought without a finals win is the longest in the AFL.

But they finished the season strongly and the recruiting of GWS star Dylan Shiel has further raised expectations that they will be next year’s bolter.

Despite their regular prime time appearances, Essendon* chief executive Xavier Campbell took a stab at league officials for Essendon*’s home games against fellow-Melbourne clubs who finished outside the top eight last season.

“At the biggest venue in Melbourne with a capacity of 100,000, we feel it may have been a missed opportunity to not showcase a traditional Victorian based rivalry in two of our four home games scheduled at the MCG,” Campbell said.

‘However, we do thank the league for their willingness to work with the Clubs to ensure a relatively balanced fixture.”

Hawthorn boss Justin Reeves also criticised his team’s draw, claiming his club didn’t receive any of its fixture requests.

“We understand the fixture process is a challenging one for the league, however it is disappointing we did not receive any of the priority fixture requests we submitted to the AFL and that we have again been fixtured a home game at Marvel Stadium,” Reeves said.

“On a positive note, we are pleased our members will be able to enjoy some terrific home games at the MCG, with big match-ups against the Cats on Easter Monday, Collingwood on a Friday night and reigning Premiers West Coast.”

The bigger they pump them up the louder they burst.

I hope the Bombers get smashed in their primetime slots.

Unfortunately they won't...and if they do they will be brave.

I have moved on.

Big difference there is Hawthorn have the runs on the board where they can make demands and be taken somewhat seriously.

Us making statements like that would be met with nothing but laughter and copping an even worse deal.

We have a lot of traditional Saturday arvos and Sunday arvos as well
Time for people to start taking their kids to the footy again.

In years to come we may thank the AFL for introducing a generation of young supporters to Carlton.
We got what we got. Now we have to win games and shut the rest up. It's the only way.

From my selfish perspective, it means I have lots of games starting before midnight so I don't have to sleep till 4:00 a.m. and then get up again.
Thanks AFL.

I think for true family friendly, the games need to start at 1.10 or 2.10pm at the latest. Starting at 3.00pm- not so much. Unless you get a meal on the way home maybe... one less thing to organise. Not a great time with young kids.

I'd like to see a bit more clarity provided in the way game timeslots are allocated.

i.e. Good Friday requires X amount of club members per club, minimum of a certain amount of wins the year before, and perhaps even a financial assurance of a minimum crowd of 45000, anything less and the clubs foot a bill.

Or even provisions requiring certain upkeep to ensure the big games are kept (i.e Essendon*/Collingwood can't lose 20% of their membership figures since the date the rules come into play, must have played finals each a certain amount of times, and no more than one wooden spoon in the previous five years)

Fantastic post.

Makes so much sense and it keeps the AFL honest, and playing by the 'known' rules: even playing field.

Terrible situation we can't trust the Commissioners. Absurd.

Asking the AFL for clarity?

Not sure if serious.

I have booked flights and accommodation for the Gold Coast game already. They are in the middle of the Victorian school holidays so I figured any sales will exclude this date.
