I am no way a fan of the Eagles, far from it, but what has been dished out to them for the preseason games is a disgrace.
Along with the Dockers, they are the most traveled club in the competition, yet the AFL in its wisdom!!!!!!!????? decide to send them the most miles  for games that almost mean JS.
What a crock of BS.

Does it really matter? Most of the time in these games you just send out a handful of senior players with the kids who are fighting for spots. Those kids most of the time aren't best 22 anyway.

Yes it does matter.The Victorian club  moan and groan about coming to WA twice in a year.But that seldom happens.
What ever happened the equalisation in the AFL.OHHH that's right, that only applies to the money losing clubs from Melbourne getting hand outs from the AFL.

Wouldn't work I am afraid.That would make us as equal as the Melbourne based clubs.We couldn't have that.

I just went and looked at the fixture. Cry me a river. WC play two games in WA. The whole point of the pre-season comp is to play games in regional areas of the state so those fans can watch some AFL quality footy. It's 3 games played over a month where the players are rotated heavily and senior players maybe play 2 games. This isn't some consipiracy theory against the WA clubs, it's an opportunity for the Western Australian fans to actually watch these boys play.

Yeah look, I've always considered this a bit of a non-issue. The home ground advantage we get at Subi is a million times better than anything Melbourne clubs get at the G, especially when they play another Victorian club.

Well vic clubs (minus Geelong) only have to travel 9 other teams home games, other than that they get home games. Surely it can't be that hard to make them travel once or twice more each season and the interstate clubs have an extra game at home.

Could just merge the WA clubs with the SA clubs and QLD clubs with the NSW clubs and all teams only have fly as far as SA and NSW.

So Crows-Eagles merger, Port-Freo merger, Brisbane-Giants and Sun-Swans... what could possibly go wrong?!

Ok throw into that we have 23 round comp with 18 teams and the higher finishing teams get a harder draw playing top 8 teams twice that should be a piece of cake to organize  :P
