To be released next week, is the word.

The weekend of AFL Round 3, where we play Carlton on a Friday night, just in case you didn't have it committed to memory.

Three byes is, at first glance, maybe too many, but with the competition reverting back to an odd number of teams (15) it was inevitable. Actually, three byes was an under-recognised element in our Top 2 finish in 2016. The third bye fell almost smack bang in the middle of our 10 week finish to the home and away season. It divided the run home up into month long manageable chunks and allowed a young team quite often short on AFL hardened manpower to blast teams with a very physically taxing gameplan for a month, then take a week off to reload, then go again.

The downside of 3 byes again, of course, is that we're almost certain to see the ridiculous scenario where the team has an enforced week off on the last weekend of May for state representative football, then a second bye just three weeks later by club demand...

Am hoping for Dave's sake that we make a trip to Frankston to play the returning Dolphins. Won't cop any train replacement buses that way...
