Indeed.
Four byes during the season, hard to get any continuity when you have that many. Fortunately for the Pies, their Byes are almost done. Final bye is round 17.

How does the VFL and AFL work it out? How can you schedule an AFL and VFL bye in the same week? What an annoyance can't even give returning players a run in the VFL.

To me this is sheer stupidity. Unless someone can make a case for this or the reason, I remain convinced that it is yet another example of poor fixturing.
