AFL fixture: Kane Cornes hits out at Friday night overlap games in 2022

AFL commentator Kane Cornes has taken aim at the “disrespectful” 2022 fixture that has seen South Australian teams, West Coast and Fremantle relegated during Friday night prime time slots.

The Dockers have drawn their first Friday night clash since 2016 in round eight, but it won’t be shown on free-to-air TV with the AFL scheduling a Port Adelaide-Western Bulldogs blockbuster earlier the same night in Adelaide.

The Adelaide showdown in round three is another match that has been pushed to pay-per-view provider Foxtel, with their clash scheduled on the same Friday night as Melbourne v Essendon at the MCG starting just an hour earlier.

The decision to overlap games on a Friday night didn’t sit well with Cornes.

“It’s disrespectful to the game,” he complained on SEN.
