Tasmania's first five games @ home
Just wondered what people thought of the VFL's decision to schedule the first five games for the Devils all at home in Tasmania? Is it a fair fixture? Rd 1 - Tasmania vs. Springvale York Park 6.30pm Rd 2 - Tasmania vs. Sandringham Hobart 2.00pm Rd 3 - Tasmania vs. Geelong York Park 2.00pm Rd 4 - Tasmania vs. North Ballarat Hobart 2.00pm Rd 5 - Tasmania vs. Bendigo Bombers Hobart 2.00pm Or does it balance out over the season.. giving them a tougher run home?

They play too many games at home for my liking, dont they play something like 12 home games, i know they get good crowds but it basically guarantees them a spot in the finals & when they do make the finals they will probably get another home game. Too much of an unfair advantage for my liking.

Apparently Geelong a playing a "home" game down there as well :( *edit - I can't spell!

Just had a quick look at the fixture, in the first nine rounds they have 7 home game, 1 away game & a bye, not a bad way to start the year.

The VFL is going for the crowd, rather then fairness, Tasmania should be given the same treatment as every other side in the VFL. They'll probably bring another final to Bellerive this year, hopefully it will be after Tasmania makes the top four and deserves to have the game down here.
