    Apparently it has to do with the GF of the AFLW having its own time slot. That is what I heard anyway.

    I actually like Saturday twilight. It can pretty smoothly fit in with other plans you might have.

    Sunday twilight games are full on depressing though and should be banned forever.

    C'mon AFL, turf Essendon and Carlton from the primetime slots.

    Hand us Anzac Day while we're at it.

    You know you want to.

    AFL confirms Tigers, Blues fixtures

    Another Friday night blockbuster has been locked in for the Western Bulldogs, with the AFL confirming the fixtures for round seven and eight of the 2021 Toyota AFL Premiership Season today.

    The Bulldogs will take on the reigning premiers, Richmond, to start round seven.

    Already, the Bulldogs have had two Friday night games – against Collingwood in round one and North Melbourne in round three – with a third on the way against the GWS Giants in round six, in Canberra.

    It will be the Bulldogs’ second visit to the MCG for 2021, with the Tigers to play hosts for the game on Friday 30 April at 7.50pm AEST.

    The match will be broadcast live on Channel 7 and Fox Footy.

    From there, the Bulldogs will have a nine-day break before hosting Carlton in round eight, on Sunday 9 May at Marvel Stadium at 3.20pm.

    Again, this match will be broadcast on both Channel 7 and Fox Footy.

    *The Bulldogs’ round five fixture against the Gold Coast Suns on Saturday 17 April at Marvel Stadium has had the start time changed from 1.45pm AEST to 4.35pm AEST, to allow a standalone time for the AFLW Grand Final at 2pm AEST on the same day.

    Surely we can sell the vacant sponsor space on the back considering our upcoming prime time appointments.

    We should get the Vic goverment to pay us a million dollars to have VACCINATE NOW across the back of the jumper.

    Raking in the friday night games, turns out that playing well with a visually appealing style helps in that regard.

    It's gotten beyond ridiculous. Top of the ladder, plenty of FTA coverage and we are the only club without one.

    I wouldn't be against a rotation idea selling it in smaller lots if we can't land the big commitment.
    I have faith in the team behind the scenes they've been pretty on the ball of late, but I do wonder with Friday night games how we haven't sold that space.
    In Nick Truelson we trust

    It must be a tough decision between accepting a low ball offer and holding out for a better deal. Surely we can't go on too much longer without one though.

    For accuracy "Vaccinate between now and possibly this time next year - we'll let you know!"............

    Cornes having a whinge about the game with Port should be prime time on Friday night instead of the Saints.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.
