Re: ~~Official AFL 2012 Discussion Thread ~~ ft. GWS

You'll get to the finals with the schedule you've got. Port, Suns, GWS twice; Hawks, Pies, Sydney, Essendon, Carlton once.

It's so ridiculous the AFL when it comes to scheduling. How can it be fair that something like this happens? The finals is all well & good, but why not have every team play each other once, home & away like most sports and the team at the top wins the flag? The season would only run a few more weeks if you take the finals into account. I can't get my head round it. It's like Collingwood barely stepping out of Melbourne last year with the Etihad being a big trip for them.

Looking at our fixtures again, we've got Collingwood, Geelong, Sydney & West Coast twice. It's utter bullshit. It'd be better if the league was split at halfway after everyone's played each team once, then the teams in the top 8 play each other while the bottom 8 do the same like the SPL used to and the initial top 8 can't be overtaken by the bottom teams.

the better teams play the harder teams twice. we get suns and gws twice because they took our two best chb's 2 years in a row.

Settling in to watch the Hawks v Demons and I'm surprised Hawks are playing almost a full side.

Re: ~~Official AFL 2012 Discussion Thread ~~ ft. GWS

carlton registered 0.0.0 for the second half in a 64 point belting to brisbane. hardly ideal preparation for a team that was considered a serious top 4 contender. no matter how under strength teams are, there's been some very ordinary showings from teams that should be better.

I agree. I know it's only NAB cup but there should still be a little effort from teams. But it's also possible teams like Carlton are just waiting until the home & away season starts.

Hate the NAB cup because I am falling into the trick of thinking the crows will be good this season while in reality they will probably struggle to reach the finals even with the favourable games we have.

I'll join the tipping competition and the dream team/super coach if someone can post the registration details for me, can't be stuffed looking back through the thread for them.

It's still ridiculous and an unfair advantage when it can be so easily fixed. Looking at the teams competing for the top 8 this year, well places 5-8, it's so tight between the likes of Adelaide, Carlton, Fremantle, St. Kilda, Essendon, Richmond, Sydney, those with the easier fixtures have more chance of getting to the finals. With 4 points for a win too, it makes such a difference.

Imagine the fuss if teams over here like Everton had to play City, United, Arsenal, Spurs & Chelsea twice while Sunderland had Rovers, Bolton, Wigan, QPR, Wolves twice. It's just so unfair. It's the only thing I don't like about the AFL. Would it be so ridiculous to extend the season so each team plays each other twice and shorten or scrap the finals?

Great win for the Hawks, still not reading too much into it unlike the Richmond & Adelaide fans on Fox about their wins over the Cats & Pies.

[QUOTE=Nige™;11133428]Would it be so ridiculous to extend the season so each team plays each other twice and shorten or scrap the finals?/QUOTE]

The finals for the AFL will never be scraped, bucket loads of revenue come in for the AFL finals and it leads to a more exciting finish (even if the best team doesn't win the premiership).

The finals structure they have currently seems pretty fair in rewarding the certain ladder position so it would be hard to see where they can shorten it.

Only way it would work would be to scrap the pre-season and start the season earlier and finish it later to count in for 34 weeks of fixtures as well as extra weeks for finals. That would never happen so we are stuck with this semi flawed fixtures with favourable games for lower teams from the previous season.
