    Can we really do it, like we PM our tips every week and then have a ladder to see who's on top of the tips and who isn't?

    We could also have a woodenspoon!

    Hi,

    I started this thread http://boards.theforce.net/South_Australia/b10630/18526919/?4
    on the SAFF boards, but an interstate comp would be even better :)

    I'd recommend using the AFL tipping site to organise the whole thing rather than relying on PMs. Much easier to manage.

    Apparently it's closed for the time being, so it looks like I'll be organising it here. ;)

    They tend to keep it closed until the week before round 1. You can register your interest in the meantime and you'll get a mail once it opens inviting you to join.

    Sounds good, can we get colours and a title if we win?

    Maybe, it's not my decision to make. I'll certainly try and get some sort of prize organised.

    Anyone in here remember the old JCFF footy tipping comps we had? I think we got 4 of them in before this place went quite... and people stopped whinging about sport.

    So how's this going to work?

    I don't even know when the season starts, let alone who plays who. So for those of us using the "flip a coin" method, are the rounds detailing the teams going to be posted? And is it PM or just post picks in here?

    I've been out for a couple of days, but here's how it'll work: each Monday, I'll post a list of the matches being played the following weekend. Pick your winners and PM them to me (or post here, I don't mind) by Friday 5 PM. You get one point for each correct tip. I'll post the running totals of everyone's tips along with the matches.

    It's looking like I won't have enough time to coordinate both AFL and NRL, so if someone wants to coordinate the NRL side of things they're more than welcome to.

    Bah, no need to worry about the week-by-week details. The Cats will emerge as premiers in 2005. :)

    I think you both need spellcheckers.

    That, or your dreaming.

    Xanakh has the right idea... Carn the Cats! :D




    I will supply the wooden spoon (via post if need be) to the loser.

    Luckily it will probably cost nothing as I am excellent at losing these things :p

    Jedi-Aztek, please go and watch this. When it is finished, click on the little muscly arm in the top left-hand corner. After the CD pops up, click on it until you hear the fourth song.

    This is for your own good.

    Thanks a lot, Hawk; I had to get off my arse and go find my fixture so I could take into account the venues. :D

    Oh and about the wacky novelty ideas... I agree that there should never be a night Grand Final. What's next, the Melbourne Cup: Greyhound Edition? Buuuut I think overseas exhibition matches are okay. Especially if they're part of a campaign to expand the AFL's territory, into New Zealand for example. Oh no, I have a better idea. We'll just call the finals the 'World Series' like the Yanks do with baseball, even though it's only in one country (Canada doesn't count).

    Whoops. [face_blush] Sorry, should have added those. I'll go edit them in.

    I think the Dubai idea is a little absurd, to be honest. I don't see the purpose of it.

    Well I think it is only a matter of time before a grand final played at night and less and less games played in the day, and will not be many years before there is no pre season comp, but they will add a few more rounds to the home and away season.

    The reason the eddiewoods want to play in Dubai is emirates air being their major sponser and that airline comes from Dubai...got to please the sponsers.

    Now my round one picks.......bold to win

    Brisbane v St Kilda 24
    Kangaroos v Carlton
    Melbourne v Essendon
    Fremantle v Port Adelaide
    Sydney v Hawthorn
    Richmond v Geelong
    Adelaide v West Coast
    Collingwood v Western Bulldogs

    we going to have a points margin on the first game of the round for each weeks winner? if so thats what the number after first game is.

    To decide the winner in each round, I will label one each of my cats one of the teams, then I'll pit them against each other with spears strapped to their backs.

    Or I'll just wildly guess...

    Brisbane v St Kilda 24
    Kangaroos v Carlton
    Melbourne v Essendon
    Fremantle v Port Adelaide
    Sydney v Hawthorn
    Richmond v Geelong
    Adelaide v West Coast
    Collingwood v Western Bulldogs
