Another comp's behind us. This was the inaugural running of the F1 GP comp:
    Formula One GP
    1st : Sypher
    2nd : wez
    3rd : ekaterina|sue943
Congratulations to the 4 medallists, and a special mention for our debutantes ekaterina and sue943, their debut appearances in the Hall of Fame!
(season long tipping comp)

.

Following on from Arsenal's 49 match unbeaten run, and the fact that Sypher was the leader from start to finish (the longest run for an entire season), these are longest consecutive runs where a tipster has lead a comp (solo or jointly):
    Code:
       comp     season                 weeks  consecutive 
    

    1 FAPL 2001-02 Copago 4-42 39
    2 NRL 2003 ozzz2002 8-26 19
    3 F1 GP 2004 Sypher 1-18 18 E
    4 NRL 2001 Davjack 6-22(26) 17
    4 NFL 2003 ElfTwinkle 1-17 17 E
    6 NBA 2002-03 thejazzkickazz 4-19(24) 16
    7 NBA 2001-02 thejazzkickazz 9-22(24) 14
    7 NRL 2004 gtho4 13-26 14
    9 NCL 2003 gtho4 5-17 13
    10 AFL 2001 WoolDog3 4-15(22) 12
    10 Super12s 2002 gtho4 1-12 12 E
    10 NRL 2003 Sypher 2-13(26) 12


    E = entire season
    numbers in brackets indicate length of season

Sypher's effort is the 3rd occasion someone has led a comp from start to finish, and it's the 3rd longest run we've had. Just like Arsenal's record, no-one will get near Copago's effort in the 01-02 FAPL comp, 39 weeks straight!

This table will be placed in this thread's first post (the HoF) at a later date, as I'm not sure I've found all of the consecutive runs - I may have missed one or two. Please let me know if I have!

Following perfect picks of 11/11 by Sarah606 last weekend in the NBA, JuniorTheJaws came up with 10/10 in the FA Premier League yesterday. We've now had 3 perfect picks in any tipping comp since day dot back in March 2000, when this forum ran its first tipping comp.

Code:
perfect picks

10/10 2002-03 FAPL Sat 17-Aug-02 Round 1 gtho4
11/11 2004-05 NBA Sat 25-Dec-04 Round 8 Sarah606
10/10 2004-05 FAPL Sat 1-Jan-05 Round 21 JuniorTheJaws

[ double digit picks only, as there are far too many to list ]
[ for other comps e.g. 8/8 has been tipped many times in the ]
[ AFL, ditto 7/7 in the NRL, and 6/6 in the Super 12s and NCL ]


I don't think there are any other double-digit perfect picks .. we've never had perfect picks in MLB or the NFL, or the NBA before last weekend.
