  • ASA was running on default fuel this week.
  • It was a lethargic performance from Sydney but still good enough to overcome a narrow half-time deficitto defeat Carlton. Melbourne withstood an early Western Bulldogs onslaught to pull away in the second half and win by 49 points. It was tense in the final quarter between Hawthorn and Port Adelaide but it was the home team Hawks who had the final say kicking the last 8 points to edge it by 3. It was a shocker from Gold Coast as they were pummeled by Geelong at home. It was almost as bad for Essendon as they were thrashed by Richmond for the Tiger's 7th win in a row over Essendon and their 15th consecutive victory at the MCG. West Coast survived a scare in the final quarter as a 48 point lead turned into an 18 point win over St Kilda, a 10th win in a row keeping them atop the standings. It was all over by quarter time as North Melbourne blew away Brisbane and never looked back to win by 54 points. Collingwood were too classy for Fremantle at the MCG as they ran away with the game. Greater Western Sydney put in their best performance of the year to stun Adelaide in Adelaide.
  • We had a very good round as we went 98/126 for a 77.77% strike rate though it was looking much better before the final game. It was helped by 3 perfect games, being the Sydney, North Melbourne and Collingwood victories. No one gave Greater Western Sydney a chance to break their losing streak at Adelaide.
  • gtho4 made it back-to-back weekly wins and was joined by ElfTwinkle in going 8/9. In a mirror image, Sypher made it back-to-back spoons and was joined by chogobad in going 6/9, the best wooden spoon score of the season so far.
  • We are still waiting for chogobad and ozzz2002 to get their first weekly win while 6 of us are yet to earn our first wooden spoon.
  • ElfTwinkle joins Daaanieeel and Howie72 at the top of the standings, these 3 are 2 points clear of Dizart in 4th place. At the bottom, wwe84 breaks clear of the 3 way tie, leaving Sypher and ASA battling it out.

  • ASA was running on default fuel this week.
  • Port Adelaide took advantage of the absence of Richmond's reigning Brownlow medalist to beat the defending premiers by 14 points. Geelong comfortably beat North Melbourne to strengthen their top four claims. Greater Western Sydney steamrolled visiting Gold Coast by 108 points, their biggest winning margin in their short history. It could have been a lot worse for St Kilda as they trailed Sydney by 47 points at the end of the first quarter but they showed some pride in the remainder of the game to go down by 71 points in the end. It was a scrappy match in Brisbane but Essendon came out on top over their hosts. Inaccurate kicking from Adelaide at the end of their game at Fremantle saw the Dockers hold on for a narrow victory. Collingwood were too classy for Melbourne, dominating to end the Demon's 6 game winning streak.
  • We had a good round as we went 62/98 for a 63.28% strike rate. It was helped by 2 perfect games, being the Greater Western Sydney and Sydney victories. The trickiest game to predict was Collingwood's win at Melbourne which only chogobad saw coming.
  • chogobad finally earned a weekly win and did so in style, going perfect with 7/7 and earning a bonus point as well. Wooden spoons went to Daaanieeel, George95 and ElfTwinkle who all went 3/7.
  • With chogobad's weekly win we are now just waiting for ozzz2002 to fill in this column. Daaanieeel's first wooden spoon now sees 5 of us waiting for our first wooden spoon.
  • Howie72 opens up a 2 point gap at the top after Daaanieeel and ElfTwinkle's wooden spoon efforts while Dizart moves to within 1 point of the podium. At the bottom, Sypher jumps clear of the defaulting ASA.

  • We had a full house this week.
  • The bye did Western Bulldogs no good as they suffered a heavy defeat at Port Adelaide. Sydney were held goalless in the first and fourth quarters but it did not matter as they beat West Coast, ending the Eagle's 10 game winning streak. Carlton's dismal season continued as they were demolished at home by Fremantle, the only bright point being they won the second half. Gold Coast will be wondering what struck them as St Kilda came back from the dead, trailling by 31 points heading into the final quarter they dug deep and snatched the win from the jaws of defeat. Last years beaten finalist, Adelaide, are in danger of missing the play-offs this season after Hawthorn thumped them by 56 points. Richmond won for the 16th time in a row at the MCG but had to withstand a spirited Geelong, only leading by 1 point heading into the final quarter but extending that to 18 points by the final siren.
  • We had a very good round as we went 67/90 for a 74.44% strike rate. We had no perfect games with the closest being Port Adelaide's win over Western Bulldogs which only Sypher did not pick. The trickiest game to pick was Richmond's win over Geelong but even then more than half of us got this.
  • chogobad made it back-to-back perfect rounds and was joined by Daaanieeel, Dizart and paper_aero in going 6/6 and earning a bonus point. Wooden spoons went to wwe84, Sypher, ozzz2002, ASA, srini701 and ElfTwinkle who all went 3/6.
  • We are still waiting for ozzz2002 earn his first weekly win. A first spoon went to srini701 leaving just Howie72, Dizart, paper_aero and Dizart with blanks in this column.
  • Howie72 is once again joined at the top by Daaanieeel and these two are one point ahead of Dizart who overtakes ElfTwinkle for third place. The botom four all received wooden spoons so no changes, ASA bringing up the rear.

  • We had a full house this week though George95 missed the West Coast vs Essendon game with late tips, lodged after the game had finished.
  • 51,409 fans turned up to watch West Coast host Essendon and most will have wished they did not bother as the Bombers kicked the first 8 goals of the game on their way to a comprehensive 38 point win. Melbourne lead for most of the game at Port Adelaide but could not pull away, the Power finishing the game the strongest to take a hard fought 10 point victory. It was a sluggish first quarter from Hawthorn as they trailed Gold Coast by 9 points at the first break but they then found their feet and ran away with the game to leave the Suns winless in their last 8 games. Greater Western Sydney travelled north and defeated Brisbane in a game that will be remembered for a piece of thuggery rather than the performance of the two teams. The Giant's star forward, Jeremy Cameron is facing a lengthy ban for striking Harris Andrews in the face with his elbow, leaving the Lions' defender barely conscious and blood streaming from his mouth. North Melbourne trailed Western Bulldogs at every break except for the one that mattered as they kicked a late goal to snatch the victory. It was not as easy as most expected but Collingwood overcame a spririted Carlton by 20 points despite briefly surrendering the lead in the third quarter.
  • We had an excellent round as we went 69/89 for a 77.52% strike rate. It was helped by three perfect games, being the Hawthorn, Greter Western Sydney and Collingwood wins. The trickiest game to pick was Essendon's win at West Coast which only Sypher managed to get correct.
  • chogobad made it a hat-trick of weekly wins and was joined by another 9 of us, all going 5/6. A solo wooden spoon was handed out to wwe84 who went 3/6.
  • We are still waiting for ozzz2002 to earn his first weekly win while Howie72, Dizart, paper_aero and LeoDaVinci still have nothing to stir their coffees with.
  • There is very little change at the top as only ElfTwinkle of the top 8 failed to get a weekly win, this leaves Daaanieeel and Howie72 tied at the top, one point clear of Dizart. Despite a weekly win, ASA remains at the bottom 2 points adrift.

  • We had a full house this week.
  • Richmond stayed top of the standings after a hard fought win over Sydney, the Tigers taking the lead near the end of the first quarter and never relinquishing it though the Swans made it interesting when getting to within 4 points early in the last quarter. Western Bulldogs snapped a 5 game losing streak when they edged Geelong by 2 points, having to hold their breaths when a kick at goal from the Cats went narrowly wide after the final siren, Geelong have now lost 7 in a row after a bye the previous round. Port Adelaide outlasted a plucky Carlton in the final quarter to win by 21 points. West Coast's slump continued after Adelaide turned a 27 point deficit late in the third quarter into a 10 point win, much to the delight of the home fans. Colingwood kicked 8 consecutive goals over the first and second quarters to blow their game at Gold Coast wide open and were never seriously threatened after that. Greater Western Sydney moved back into the top 8 for the first time in 2 months after edging Hawthorn. The second major shock of the round came in Melbourne where the home team suffered another loss, this time by 2 points to lowly St Kilda and are in danger of tumbling out of the top 8 after being 3rd a month ago. Essendon came out on top over North Melbourne in a high scoring shootout, the combined 148 points in the first half being the most since round 22 in 2009. Brisbane ended an 8 year Western Australia drought as they demolished an injury-ravaged Fremantle by 55 points.
  • We had a below average round as we went 68/135 for a 50.37% strike rate despite two perfect games, being the Port Adelaide and Collingwood wins. What dragged the round down was three games with not one correct tip, being the Western Bulldogs, St Kilda and Brisbane wins.
  • Daaanieeel and Dizart came out on top with 6/9 to achieve a weekly win, denying chogobad 4 in a row. Spoons went to ozzz2002 and ElfTwinkle with 3/9.
  • We are still waiting for ozzz2002 to earn his first weekly win while Howie72, Dizart, paper_aero and LeoDaVinci still have nothing to stir their coffees with.
  • There is significant change at the top as Daaanieeel takes over the lead by himself, 1 point ahead of Dizart who is a further point ahead of Howie72, the first time in 15 rounds Howie72 has not been on top of the podium so could he be following in West Caost's footsteps as they are dropping down the standings too? Sypher, ozzz2002 and wwe84 are sensing ASA closing in at the bottom as he is now just 1 point behind.

  • We had a full house this week though ElfTwinkle missed the Sydney vs Geelong match with late tips, lodged after the match had ended.
  • Geelong put in a terrible kicking performance with 8 goals and a massive 23 behinds but the inaccuracy did not cost them as they triumphed over Sydney. Richmond were not at their best but still thumped Adelaide by 47 points to retain top spot in the ladder. Brisbane set up their huge win over Carlton with 9 unanswered goals from late in the opening quarter to early in the third, the Blues are now 2 games drift at the foot of the standings so looking likely to take home the wooden spoon. Port Adelaide cruised to a comfortable win at home to St Kilda, the Saints never seriously threatened the Power. A brilliant Hawthorn third quarter turned a 2 point deficit into a 43 point lead over Western Bulldogs and there was no coming back for the home team. Melbourne also had the goalkicking yips but it did not matter as they still demolished a woeful Fremantle. North Melbourne Kangaroos jumped all over Gold Coast, the Suns are now winless in their last 10 games. Essendon's slim finals hopes took another hit as Collingwood ground out a 16 point win. It was an arm wrestle in Perth but West Coast snapped a losing streak when they edged Greater Western Sydney, a crucial win to stop their slide.
  • We had our best round of the season as we went 110/134 for a 82.08% strike with only two perfect games, being the Melbourne and North Melbourne wins. The trickiest game to pick was Geelong's win at Sydney which only ASA and chogobad tipped.
  • For the third time in 5 weeks chogobad went perfect, earning another bonus point with 9/9. Sypher picked up a solo spoon with 5/9, a competition leading 7th spoon.
  • We are still waiting for ozzz2002 to earn his first weekly win while Howie72, Dizart, paper_aero and LeoDaVinci still have nothing to stir their coffees with.
  • Dizart joins Daaanieeel at the top, they have a 1 point ahead over Howie72, 1 point further back is a fast charging chogobad. Only 4 points separate the top 6. Sypher takes over at the bottom and is 1 point behind ozzz2002 after ASA jumped up to 13th place.

  • ASA was running on default fuel this week.
  • Adelaide kept their finals hopes alive with a hard fought win over Geelong, leaving them one win outside the top 8. St Kilda heaped more misery on Carlton with a 64 point thumping, the 49th time in a row the Blues have failed to get to 100 points. Brisbane continued their reival as they stunned Hawthorn in Tasmania, pulling way in the final quarter. Western Bulldogs kept it close against Melbourne for the first half and took the lead early in the third quarter despite coming second in the key statistics, the Demons then put their foot down and made no race of the remainder of the game, finally winning by 50 points. A huge second half saw Essendon shake a dogged Gold Coast to also stay in the hunt for finals football. Greater Western Sydney just showed enough composure in the final quarter to upset league leading Richmond by 2 points. West Coast had not beaten Collingwood at the MCG since 1995 and the Magpies were on a 7 game winning streak so of course, the Eagles were outstanding to take over second place from Collingwood. Sydney kicked the last 2 goals to win a thriller at North Melbourne, the lead changing numerous times. Fremantle were once again poor but Port Adelaide were even worse as the Dockers recorded an upset 9 point win in an error-ridden and low-scoring encounter.
  • After last week's superb result, we had a poor round as we went 56/125 for a 44.80% strike rate despite having two perfect games, being the Melbourne and Essendon wins. On the flip side we also had two games which no one got right, being Brisbane's win at Hawthorn and Greater Western Sydney's win over Richmond.
  • For the first time this season ozzz2002 finds himself with a weekly win and does it solo with 6/9. Four spoons were given away as N-Bomb, George95, chogobad and LeoDaVinci all went 3/9.
  • As mentioned above, ozzz2002's first weekly win fills in the last blank of that column. LeoDaVinci picked up his first spoon to leave just Howie72, Dizart, and paper_aero searching for their first.
  • Daaanieeel once again pulls ahead by 1 point at the top over Dizart with Howie72 a point further back. The top 6 are now separated by 6 points, up from 4 last round. With his default score, ASA joins Sypher at the bottom, 2 points behind wwe84 and ozzz2002.

    Sypher should have 85, not 80.

  • We had a full house this week.
  • After last week's blip, it was business as usual for St Kilda as they were thrashed by Richmond, the Tigers getting closer to securing top spot for the play-offs. Collingwood Magpies got off to a flyer against North Melbourne with 6 early goals and the game was effectively over after 21 minutes, the Roos bounce being deflated in a 66 point thumping. Maybe the biggest upset of the season happened in Sydney when Gold Coast travelled south on an 11 game losing streak and stunned Sydney, turning around a 29 point quarter-time deficit to win by 24. Essendon trailed Fremantle at half-time but turned it around in the second half to run out 29 point winners. In-form Brisbane hosted Adelaide but it was the Crows silenced the local crowd when they eked out a tough 5 point win to sit just outside the top 8. Melbourne dominated early against Geelong but the Cats clawed their way back in a thriller, kicking the winning goal after the final siren, the Demons have not beaten a top 8 side all season. It was a chance for Hawthorn to earn another 4 points and improve their for and against percentage while not losing anyone to injury when they travelled to Carlton, this they achieved as they cruised to an emphatic 72 point win. West Coast outclassed Western Bulldogs in Perth but gained a new injury concern. Greater Western Sydney withstood a late Port Adelaide comeback when 4 goals in a row closed the deficit to 9 points but that was as close as the home team got as the Giants moved into the top 8.
  • Another very good round this week as we went 101/135 for a 74.81% strike rate. It was helped by 3 perfect games being the Richmond, Hawthorn and West Coast wins. Not surprisingly, no one gave Gold Coast a chance to win at the Sydney Swans.
  • Just like chogobad did, ozzz2002 follows up his first weekly win with another and is joined by gtho4, LeoDaVinci and chogobad in going 8/9. Another 3 spoons were handed out as wwe84, George95 and ElfTwinkle all went 5/9.
  • Howie72, Dizart, and paper_aero are still searching for their first wooden spoon but do they want one?
  • Not much change at the top as the first 3 all went 7/8 leaving Daaanieeel with a 1 point lead over Dizart, Howie72 sits a point further back with chogobad snapping at his heels. The top 7 are now separated by just 6 points. At the bottom, ASA and Sypher cannot be separated and are 1 point behind wwe84.

  • ASA was running on default fuel this week.
  • Essendon continued their late season surge towards the play-offs after a dominant second half saw them crush Sydney by 43 points, will they have enough rounds left to get into the top 8? Richmond are now Kings of the MCG after their win over Collingwood gave them a record 18th consecutive win at this stadium though it took until the final quarter for them to move away on the scoreboard. Brisbane looked set for a 1 point lead at half-time against Geelong but 2 goals in the final minute gave the Cats the momentum they needed and they never looked back in the final 2 quarters. Greater Western Sydney started slowly against St Kilda but once they got into gear they gradually pulled away to win by 25 points. The accuracy of Gold Coast's goal kicking was horrendous and Carlton took full advantage for just their second win of the season. Adelaide's play-off hopes are all but over as they went down at home to Melbourne. North Melbourne kept their play-off hopes alive after an upset win over West Coast in Hobart, winning by 40 points after a tight first half. Western Bulldogs took their home game against Port Adelaide to Ballarat but felt the full power of the visitors in icy and windswept conditions, going down by 44 points. It was all one-way traffic in Perth as Fremantle got demolished by the visiting Hawthorn side.
  • It was a good round this week as we went 81/126 for a 64.28% strike rate. It was helped by 2 perfect games being the Richmond and Geelong home wins. The trickiest game to tip was Carlton's upset win at Gold Coast which only ozzz2002, Sypher and ElfTwinkle thought would happen.
  • There were another 4 weekly winners as LeoDaVinci, George95, N-Bomb and ElfTwinkle all went 7/9. The spoons went to 2 of the 3 on the podium, Daaanieeel and Howie72 went 4/9, the first spoon for Howie72.
  • With Howie72's first spoon it leaves just Dizart and paper_aero still searching for their first one.
  • Changes at the top this week as Dizart takes over from Daaanieel while chogobad takes over from Howie72 for the third spot on the podium. The top 7 are now separated by just 5 points after it was 6 points last round. At the bottom, Sypher moves 1 point ahead of ASA.

  • We had a full house this week.
  • Richmond kept their record winning streak at the MCG alive with a 19th successive victory but only just, Geelong nearly pulled back a 23 point deficit with 14 minutes remaining but their last kick at goal went wide for a behind only and the Tigers held on. There were big swings of momentum in Hawthorn's match against Essendon and the result was not decided until the final minute when Hawthorn kicked the winning goal. Brisbane had late chances to win their home game against North Melbourne but their two final kicks at goal went wide and the 'Roos hung on to keep their season alive. It was another close match in Adelaide and also controversial when the Crows kicked a late goal to defeat Port Adelaide, controversial as the kick appeared to graze the post which would have meant just a behind and a win for the Power. Western Bulldogs failed to kick a goal in the first quarter at St Kilda but then were unleashed, kicking 15 goals to 5 after the first break to cruise to a comfortable win. The 5th very close game of the round saw a freakish Sydney goal 3 minutes from time defeat Collingwood by 2 points, Tom McCartin threw the ball on his boot while lying on the turf and managed to dribble it through the centre posts. Greater Western Sydney continues its charge into the top 4 with a 105 point thumping of Carlton but it came at a cost with crucial injuries. It was just as easy for Melbourne as they destroyed Gold Coast by 96 points. West Coast had a big win in a fiery West Coast derby but it will be remembered more for a piece of thuggery when Andrew Gaff lashed out at Andrew Brayshaw, leaving the Fremantle player in hospital with a fractured jaw and 4 displaced teeth.
  • It was another good round this week as we went 91/135 for a 67.40% strike rate. The final 3 games were all perfect as no one tipped against Greater Western Sydney, Melbourne or West Coast. The trickiest game to tip was Adelaide's upset win over Port Adelaide which only 4 of us got correct.
  • Daaanieeel and ElfTwinkle both went 8/9 to earn the weekly win while gtho4 only managed 4/9 and subsequently took home the wooden spoon.
  • With 3 rounds to go can Dizart and paper_aero remain spoonless for the entire season?
  • Changes again at the top as Daaanieel once again takes over and has the biggest lead for a while, 2 points ahead of both Dizart anf chogobad. These three now have a good lead at the top and it will take something special to knock them off the podium. The top 7 are now separated by just 6 points after it was 5 points last round. At the bottom ASA drops to 3 points behind wwe84 and Sypher.

  • We had a full house this week.
  • They were battered and bruised but Essendon still overcame St Kilda by 43 points despite having no fit players on the bench for the final quarter. Despite being kept goalless in the first quarter and surving a Geelong last quarter comeback attempt, Hawthorn made it 4 wins in a row with a tense victory over Geelong. Richmond closed in on the minor premiership after they travelled north and thrashed Gold Coast. In last season's elimination final West Coast stole the game at Port Adelaide after the final siren, this time they never looked like winning and trailed by 10 points heading into the final minute but kicked a goal to give them a sniff and then proved lightning does strike twice as from an almost identical spot of Adelaide Oval kicked the winning goal as the final siren sounded, the first time the Eagles were in front all game. It took until the second half for Collingwood to pull away from Brisbane after the Lions had lead for the majority of the first half. It was hard fought in Canberra where Greater Western Sydney came out on top over Adelaide to end the Crow's play-off hopes. Western Bulldogs trailed North Melbourne by 28 points at half time but a superb turn around after the major break stunned the home crowd and put a dagger through the heart of the Roo's play-off aspirations. Sydney held tough away at Melbourne, surviving injuries during the game and a late Demons comeback to win by 9 points. Fremantle overran Carlton in Perth to almost guarantee a 5th wooden spoon since 2002 for the Blues.
  • It was a reasonable round this week as we went 82/135 for a 60.74% strike rate. There were 2 perfect games as we all tipped Richmond and Collingwood to win. The trickiest game to tip was Western Bulldog's upset win at North Melbourne which only LeDaVinci was confident (or hopeful) would happen.
  • After a spoon last week, gtho4 takes the weekly win with a superb 8/9. A solo spoon goes to chogobad who tipped Carlton to beat Fremantle in Perth in the last game of the round, this did not happen so ended with 4/9.
  • Dizart and paper_aero breathed a sigh of relief as chogobad stole the wooden spoon away from them so can they remain spoonless for the entire season with just 2 rounds to go?
  • Not a lot of change at the top as Daaanieeel continues to lead by 2 points while Dizart pulled a point clear of chogobad. The next 4 are 2 points behind chogobad but is there enough time to catch up and climb on the podium for any of these 4? At the bottom ASA remains 3 points behind wwe84 and Sypher.

  • LeoDaVinci were running on default fuel this week.
  • It was a nervous ending as Essendon kicked the last 4 goals of the contest but Richmond held on to make it 20 wins in a row at the MCG. A 7 goal to 1 final quarter eased Collingwood past Port Adelaide after it was close approaching three quarter time. Geelong made no race of it against Fremantle as they thumped them by 133 points setting a VFL/AFL record of 23 unanswered goals in the process. Injury-hit Greater Western Sydney were overrun in the second half as Sydney came back to beat them by 20 points and secure a finals berth. The final Queensland derby of the season was a fiery affair at times but it was Brisbane that overturned a final quarter deficit to beat Gold Coast by 4 points. St Kilda gave Hawthorn a huge scare with a plucky performance but ultimately came up short by 4 points. Western Bulldogs beat Carlton in a low scoring game and in doing so confirmed the Blues would take home the wooden spoon. After 12 years of hurt and despair, Melbourne have officially made it back to finals football after they stormed the fortress of West Coast and left with a precious win. Adelaide survived a final quarter scare from North Melbourne to eke out the victory after the Roos kicked 4 goals in 5 minutes in the final quarter to set up a thrilling finish.
  • It was a very good round this week as we went 88/117 for a 75.21% strike rate. There were 2 perfect games as we all tipped Hawthorn and Western Bulldogs to win. The trickiest game to tip was Melbourne's West Coast raid, which only George95 was able to pick.
  • This week we had 3 weekly winners as George95, Daaanieeel and chogobad all went 8/9. Two more spoons were handed out as wwe84 and ElfTwinkle both went 5/9.
  • With just one round left it is looking very likely that Dizart and paper_will go all season without a wooden spoon but will there be a late surprise?
  • Daaanieel increases his lead to 3 points while chogobad again joins Dizart in second place. These 2 are 3 points ahead of a group of 3 in third place so it so unless a disaster occurs, we have our podium. The only question is whether Dizart or chogobad will finish second. Dizart owns the tie-break. At the bottom ASA remains 3 points behind wwe84.

  • ASA was running on default fuel this week.
  • Port Adelaide's power was finally extinguished as they went down at home to Essendon which guaranteed Gellong's finals berth regardless of how they went against Cold Coast. Adelaide's nightmare season ended on a high as they annihilated Carlton by 104 points, leaving the Blues with just 2 wins which is their lowest number of wins across an entire season since 1901. Geelong celebrated the news of their guaranteed finals berth with a training ground run against Gold Coast, thrashing them by 102 points. Richmond held on against a fast finishing Western Bulldogs to take their record winning streak at the MCG to 21 games. Hawthorn sealed a top 4 spot with a thrilling come from behind win over Sydney. West Coast secured second place with a comfortable win at Brisbane to earn themselves a week one play-off game at their home fortress. North Melbourne finished their season in style as they cruised to victory over St Kilda. Melbourne head into the finals with confidence after they easily beat Greater Western Sydney for back-to-back wins over top 8 sides. Collingwood survived a major scare at Fremantle as the scores were tied going into the final quarter but the Magpies flew home to win by 9 points.
  • We left our best to last as we went 105/126 for a 83.33% strike rate. There were 5 perfect games as we all tipped Adelaide, Geelong, Richmond, West Coast and Collingwood to win. The trickiest games to tip were the Essendon and Hawthorn wins but even then almost half of us got these correct.
  • The season endes with 2 perfect rounds as both Sypher and Howie72 went 9/9 and earned their first bonus point as well. The final two spoons went to ozzz2002 and chogobad with 6/9.
  • Dizart and paper_aero did it, they went the entire 23 weeks without earning a wooden spoon. This makes 33 spoonless weeks in a row for Dizart and 27 for paper_aero. Will they be able to maintain momentum next year?
  • Now for what you are all waiting for, Daaanieeel kept his 3 point lead to finish atop the podium but disaster struck for chogobad as a wooden spoon along with Howie72's weekly win and bonus point sees chogobad drop off the podium and finish a point back in 4th. Howie72 drew level with Dizart but falls short of silver due to a countback with Dizart having +7 compared to Howie72 at +5. ASA finishes at the bottom, 5 points behind wwe84 but with a number of no shows.
  • The end of the season awards are as follows:

  • And with that the season comes to an end, we look forward to the 2019 season to see if Daaanieeel can defend his title. Congratulations to Daaanieeel for his superb victory and to Dizart and Howie72 for finishing on the podium. None of the 3 on the podium last year managed to get back this year.
  • As a matter of interest, the grand final this year will be between Collingwood and West Coast, Collingwood ended Richmond's record run of victories at the MCG at 22 while West Coast destroyed Melbourne in the preliminary finals.


  • spoonless streaks continuing into 2019:

    Dizart          : 33 : spoon week 13 of 2017 (10) plus all of 2018 (23).
    paper_aero : 28 : last spoon was wk 18 of 2017 (5) plus 2018 (23).

    Well Done Daaanieeel good year of tipping.

    I gambled last round, tried for hero or zero and clearly ended up zero.

    Good luck for your Eagles, I don't like your chances as the MCG is a ground they haven't played well on, however you are now 1 of only 2 teams who can win it so I'd rather those chances than any of the other 16 teams :-)

    I just wish I could have started tipping like I finished, I was out of contention (IMO) by the midway point and nearly pinched it.
