Why are we playing Subiaco three times? How many times do Subiaco play South Freo and Peel next year?

Isn't the theory that playing against quality opposition lifts your own standards.

So I guess it is just the WAFL trying to do its bit to drag the bogans up a notch or two.

Absolute garbage. Now that the WAFC has further PROSTITUTED the WAFL competition by reducing the number of games played by two games THERE SHOULD BE CLEAR and UNAMBIGUOUS GUIDELINES as to what clubs should play three times. The only fair way it should be is that the finishing order from the previous year should be split into three divisions. The clubs that finish 1st to 3rd should play the third games against each other; similarly the 4th to 6th should play the extra games against each other; and the 7th to 9th should play the extra games against each other. UNEQUIVOCAL, UNAMBIGUOUS and FAIREST method.

Knowing that Swans draw such massive crowds, it's just the WAFC rightly looking after Subiaco after their massive operating loss last season. Those massive swans numbers through the gates will help subi's tenuous bottom line.

Really SS I think you should retract your tongue that is firmly entrenched in your cheek. Personally I don't know anyone should be bothered with the WAFL anymore. It is a complete and utter farce. G Taylor et al have COMPLETELY PROSTITUTED the WAFL competition. The coup de grace would be where G Taylor allocates the positions for the finals. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should we be playing Subiaco 3 times in 2018.

Doesnt look to bad

except SF totally miss the opening Easter round, which once upon a time drew the biggest crowds of the season, at the half wits haven't crammed all the games into Friday.

Is it the case night games are totally gone? that's bad for the bars.

Good news is Sunday games appear to be gone, they cost us a mint running the bar. ( apart from ANZAC round , on 22 April?? but at EF anyway.)

Pissed off we are lumbered with a regional, said it before will say it again they are just not worth doing any more.)

Final round a Derby, quite like that.

This si what the LIAR G TAYLOR had to say about how the fixtures were determined for the extra two games.

'“All clubs will play each other twice and their other two games will be against teams that finished in the same third of the ladder last season or for a traditional feature game.'

When did Subiaco become a traditional rival of Swans? Pure unadulterated fantasy.
