In two weeks time, yet another brand of football starts in Australia. Australian Rules (AFL) is only played here, and in some places in Ireland. smile

Rules

- One point a correct pick, nothing for a loss.
- A bonus point for picking a perfect round.
- Default if you forget to pick, wooden spoon score.
- Tiebreaker will be HoF v Spoons. Largest margin wins, or if the margin is equal, total HoF count wins.
- Deadline will be the start of the first game each weekend- usually a Friday night, with the occasional Thursday.
- Late starters will start on the Wooden Spoon score.


First game kicks off on Saturday, March 24. Get your names down now and join in the fun!

How about a point for tipping teams that have the colour red on their jersey? smile

OK, I will chuck in a bonus point for perfect scores, but nothing else!

NRL rules will be adjusted, too.

  • Welcome to the AFL Tipping comp for 2012. We have a mammoth TWENTY starters this year, and welcome first-timers har28low, MikeMaster99 and Daaanieeel, plus all the usual suspects.

  • First out of the blocks is chogobad who only missed a perfect score by going the wrong way in the very tight Power v Saints game. He was only one of two to pick the premiers, Geelong, going down to Fremantle- the other was wwe84.

  • There are six players in equal second, and a big group just one point behind them. Looks like we are off to a great year!

  • If anyone else wants to join up, simply post your tips in the weekly rounds.

    Stoked with the start this year, sadly changed 2 tips in all my other comps so the early tipping actually helped me out here!

    Hope I can hang on to the lead for a bit, I'll probably self destruct under the pressure :-)

    ps Go Hawks, please end Kennett's curse - since he opened his mouth about us beating Geelong, we haven't!

  • A very successful week, collectively- a huge total of 152 correct picks from 180 which equates to over 84%. Not too shabby for only the second week of the season.

  • The first perfect score bonus goes to George95 who now has a share of the lead with chogobad.

  • wwe84 picked up his second spoon, but hopefully his fortunes will change soon.

  • Firstly, welcome to Tizzabelle, who has decided to give us all a bit of a start.

  • Three of the top four stayed where they were last week, but no-one else did. There were some rather startling movements with har28low heading the list. He went for a couple of roughies that did not come off, scored a spoon and dropped from 5th to 18th!

  • There were HoF awards galore- exactly a third of tipsters scored 8/9, with everyone except wwe84 failing on the Kangaroos surprise win over Geelong.
