The 2019 round one fixture was revealed on the weekend, with a bevy of exciting games scheduled.
But one thing that caught Andrew Jarman's eye was something not so new.
"It’s a joke, this fixture," he said on Triple M's Rush Hour with Jars and Louie.
"Because guess who's playing on the 21st of March on a Thursday?"
He wasn't a happy man.
"Play last year's grand final sides if you want to kickstart the season with a big bang," he said.
"OH NO, LET'S JUST PLAY BLOODY CARLTON!"
