Well i'm gonna be in Melbourne from the 7th August, probably for two or three weeks.
I'll check out the fixtures when I get a few minutes. Cheers mate.
Just had a squiz. The best ones for you to check out would probably be:
Friday August 17th- Geelong v St Kilda
Saturday August 18th- Essendon v Carlton (massive rivals)
Friday August 24th- Richmond v Essendon
Sunday August 26th- watch my Dockers and get put to sleep. Particularly good for viewing after a big night v North Melbourne
The last round days/time don't come out until a couple of weeks prior but if you are still there definately head to Essendon v Collingwood which is another massive game and weather depending should draw around 70-80,000 fans.
I personally would recommend Essendon v Carlton as I went a couple of years ago when I was in Melbourne and it was awesome. 65,000 at the MCG on a Friday night was a brilliant atmosphere and it was a good game of football IIRC. The most we get over here is 42,000 for a Derby as that's all our stadium can hold.
Pop into the AFL thread just before you get here to see which ones would be best (form teams, weather etc.).
