    2016 AFL Fixture

    Released this morning.

    Full fixture: http://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/afl-...-1227586508132

    Cliffs from a fantasy perspective:

    MBRs over rounds 13-15

    Rd 13 Byes: Adelaide, Carlton, Collingwood, Gold Coast Suns, Richmond and St Kilda
    Rd 14 Byes: Essendon, Melbourne, Port Adelaide, Sydney Swans, West Coast Eagles and Western Bulldogs
    Rd 15 Byes: Brisbane Lions, Fremantle, Geelong, GWS Giants, Hawthorn and North Melbourne

    Break between round 23 and the first week of finals to avoid the mass restings we saw last year which is a very good idea.

    Looks like a pretty reasonable fantasy split on the byes.

    Guessing the round 15 bye will be the hard one now as there will be a number of midfielders from that group.

    Byes are also later in this season this time around, rather then 9-11 they're 13-15 which makes the upgrading timing a little harder I think.

    Re: 2016 AFL Fixture

    Adelaide's draw is a baptism of fire in those opening 2 months.

    Our first 8 games Norf (A), Port, Rich (A), Sydney, Haw (A), Fre, WB (A) & Geel after a 6 day break.

    We play the WA clubs twice including round 23 because you can't possibly send a Victorian side there. North are fine, they are exactly on our level and I understand we were always getting 3 from our 6 tier anyway. Port and Geelong were logical double ups but it all stacks up that we're going to have to be really good to make the 8 this season.

    I'm happy with extra games at the G, especially the clash against Hawthorn. It's what we need going forth even if we are going to improve on the big stage. Come out of those first 8 rounds 4-4 at a minimum and you can start to build some wins around weaker sides like Gold Coast as our run opens up a little.

    I think the bye after round 23 is stupid. Teams will just rest players for two weeks and it slows any momentum going into finals.

    Re: 2016 AFL Fixture

    WCE draw on first inspection:-

    Double ups against Hawthorn, Freo, Brisbane, Crows, Pies.

    Just 2 Friday night games.

    2 games in Adelaide again,2 games in Sydney & 3 at MCG.

    0 games in Darwin or Tassie this year a bonus.

    After the lions in round 1, a tough stretch of games to start the season :-
    Rd 2-7. Hawks (A), Freo (H), Richmond (H), Sydney (A), Collingwood (H), Geelong (A)

    About what I expected after finishing 2nd last year.

    Re: 2016 AFL Fixture

    I wonder whether they'll move the brownlow to the weekend of the bye post round 23? Seems like an ideal time to do it given everyone should be able to attend and it would help fill the void of having nothing on footy wise.

    Still an anti-climax going from round 23 to a week off before finals hit.

    Re: 2016 AFL Fixture

    Melbourne's draw is not bad to start the year. First 9 games are against GWS at MCG, Essendon at MCG, North at Hobart, Collingwood at MCG, Richmond at MCG, St Kilda at Etihad, Gold Coast at Metricon, Dogs at MCG and Brisbane at MCG.

    The teams they see twice are: Hawthorn , Collingwood, St Kilda, Gold Coast and Port.

    After the bye looks like being the toughest stretch for them, by which time you probably won't have any Melbourne players in your teams anyway. There's Sydney away immediately before the bye, and then they will see all of Adelaide, Freo (in Darwin), West Coast (Subi), Hawthorn, Port (AO) and Geelong (Simonds) before the end of the year.

    Re: 2016 AFL Fixture

    Freo have a horrid travel schedule :-

    Fremantle faces games in Tasmania (Hawthorn, Round 8), Queensland (Brisbane, Round 12 and Gold Coast, Round 18) and the Northern Territory (Melbourne, Round 16), as well as standard visits to Victoria, South Australia and NSW.

    Just 1 game at the MCG v Collingwood for Freo.

    Re: 2016 AFL Fixture

    Pretty bloody happy with ours even though we still don't get to play norf or gold coast at AO. Just one of the many quirks of the draw I guess.

    Double Ups against - Melbourne, GWS, Brisbane, Adelaide, Richmond. Should be absolute minimum 6-8 wins from that lot if we're fair dinkum in 2016.

    Also no 12.40pm games at Adelaide Oval is a massive win for the club. Couldn't think of a worse timeslot for a game apart from the 4.40pm sun twighlight.

    Very happy with Geelong's draw.

    We play GWS, Brissy, Essendon, Adelaide and Dogs twice with our toughest away game being Freo at Subi.
