TIPPING RULES 1. Tipping only for rounds 1-23. For each of the 23 rounds, I will post the games on this thread. To tip, either memo me or post on the thread. 2. Tips will be updated on a Monday after the weekend of games, so please don't ever pester me to do them any earlier, even if I can, because I won't. 3. I will let those who already have off now, but in the future, may I remind you that this thread is not for AFL discussion as this is one of the functions of the Scores thread. It doesn't seem like much but it really does bug me when I have to scroll through non-tipping-related things on this thread. 4. The away rule will carry on this year again, with those who don't tip to receive the away team in each match missed. If there is a weekend in which a member does not tip at all, the away rule will be applied to their tips but can only receive a maximum score of two. For those who tip some but miss some in a round, I've finally decided that you can receive a maximum score of one in a round for the missed tips to add to the total. This does not count for GWS vs Sydney in Round 1. 5. If anyone has any issues with anything to do with the competition, feel free to memo me and I'll do what I can. I am human and I make mistakes, plenty in fact 6. Italic scores in the leaderboard above indicates they did not tip and the away rule has been applied. 7. Apart from fun and stuff, the most important rule is that you respect the fact that I am doing this out of my own personal time.
Note that the GWS-Sydney game is the only game for the first weekend, with the remaining eight games on the weekend after. Feel free to only tip GWS-Sydney (think hard ) and do the rest next week as I'll probably do that.
Hawthorn Collingwood Adelaide West Coast Essendon Sydney Geelong Brisbane St. Kilda (took the bet on tipping NM after their surprise win against the Cats, not this time after defeating Adelaide though)
Carlton (4) Fremantle (45) Essendon (37) Richmond (23) (dunno why, but for some reason GC may be an upset with their first win of the season) Collingwood (3) St Kilda (10) Adelaide (55) Hawthorn (43) West Coast (16)
The other day on Facebook I posted my final Top 8 predictions by using Bailey Ladders' Ladder & Finals Predictor to select who I felt would win their remaining home & away season matches, without guessing particular winning margins. Here's mine predictions...
So I have my boys facing the Swans in the first week of the finals. Would be awesome to dish out a home qualifying final loss to the buggers this time and earn a home preliminary final in the process! So what is everyone else's predictions for the final Top 8?
Hawthorn North Melbourne Port Adelaide West Coast (Fremantle are in with a big chance if Cox & Kerr don't play) Collingwood Richmond Melbourne (although I'm REALLY tempted to pick Gold Coast) Sydney Adelaide
Hawthorn (3) Sydney (8) Adelaide (40) North Melbourne (45) Collingwood (19) (poor Essendon, from Premiership favourites and first to missing the finals) Fremantle (70) Carlton (1) Richmond (18) Brisbane (25)
Thanks Irelander for organising, had fun predicting. Bring on the Finals!
