    Honestly thought we’d done our Good Friday dash when PG publicly lashed Gil & Co. Squeaky wheel gets the grease.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    It is good to see that we are in a position that allows us to demand dignified treatment and respect. Of course we should always be treated with dignity and respect, but that's not how the AFEL works.

    City Hall and the bigger clubs won't like it, but we should be extremely vocal against the inherent injustices within the league's structure.

    They have no real claim for any extra Friday night games over anyone else because of that though. The inequalities in the fixture should be addressed but not because 'we had the idea first'

    Re: 2020 Fixture

    The Western Bulldogs are set to feature in Friday night football in 2020

    Western Bulldogs will receive more prime-time love in next year’s fixture as a reward for their exhilarating second half of last season.

    The Bulldogs will be more prominent on the Friday night stage in 2020 after receiving only one Friday night game this year.

    The Dogs have already been guaranteed two Friday night games – in the blockbuster Round 1 clash against Collingwood and also in the Good Friday game against North Melbourne.

    But it won’t be the end of the prime-time night games for the Dogs, who stamped themselves as one of the most in-form teams in the competition in the back half of last season.

    The Western Bulldogs were the second-highest scoring side in the league from Round 13 last season (average 95.7 points per game) and were a clear No. 1 from Round 18.

    The Dogs averaged 111 points per game (from Round 18) well ahead of West Coast in second place with an average 91.7 points per game, according to Champion Data.

    That scoring capability strongly appeals to broadcasters as well as the marketing appeal of the Dogs’ superstar midfield brigade.

    As well as more Friday night games, the Dogs will also feature regularly on our screens on Saturday night after seven Saturday night games in 2019.

    The extra prime time slots will deliver a nice kick to the Dogs’ coffers, helping draw increased crowds and television audiences in 2020.

    The Dogs are considered a genuine contender in next year’s premiership race after a busy trade period, adding gun key position players Josh Bruce and Alex Keath.

    It means there will be significant intrigue in how the Dogs shape up next season after crashing out of the finals in an elimination final defeat to GWS Giants’ in Sydney.

    St Kilda great Leigh Montagna said the Bulldogs deserve more prime time action.

    “I certainly think the Western Bulldogs, they’re a team on the rise,” Montagna said on Triple M.

    “They’ve now got two more key position players to compliment the midfield, and they’re a good team to watch, the Western Bulldogs.

    “They play an exciting style of footy, we know about their talent, they’re a team I’d like to watch play on a Friday night.”

    I really hope our supporters get to these Friday night games. It makes a big difference to how the club can negotiate with the AFL going forward

    Re: 2020 Fixture

    The excuse of the Easter Sunday issue is gone again for another year. The reality is we just need to show up in force and want to keep it. However, I'm not saying that's the magic potion it was last time around because the AFEL will do whatever it wants when it comes to fixturing and like any adversarial operational relationship, all we can do is put out best foot forward and point out the weaknesses of the other argument should an argument on merit eventuate.

    Round one at home on Friday night against Collingwood is probably the best fixture result we could ever ask for. Literally the best. Look forward to a lot of positive media, but beware that if we fluff it the media will turn on us very quickly.

    The pressure is on the club, it's time for us to stand up and suck it up.

    Perfectly analyzed Jeemak, we have to show up in force and be counted. This should be a real boost with membership and sponsorships.

    They don't. They seem to have an AFL given right which I don't agree with
