    I know I said that I wouldn't be running it, but things have a way of turning out differently than we would like.

    Welcome back to another season folks, and hopefully we can have a good as competion on the boards as we did last year, and perhaps a few more players *hint hint*.

    The Rules

    1. Copy your name to the list below to show you want to play. If you're reading this a weeks into the season, you can still play but after a while it's not worth joining late as the scores are so far ahead etc.
    2. The weeks draw will be posted by myself or someone I nominate (usually Kart) on Thursday once the season starts. The exception of course will be the split rounds, where there will be the one draw for two weeks.
    3. Your tips MUST be in no later by 5pm on the Friday of that same week. Of course, if the game's on a Thursday (as it is in some rounds), then it must be the Thursday.
    4. Aside from your tips, this year I will be introducing the margin, which is you must pick the margin between the teams scores of a selected match that I will select when posting the draw. This means if the match is Collingwood vs Carlton and you say 20, there must be twenty points diference at the end of the fourth quarter.
    5. If you get the margin right, you get an extra point. if you get all 8 teams and the margin, you get 10 points.
    6. Finally, if you know you are going to be away for any period, it is okay to put your tips in early. Just PM me to get the margin match.

    The season starts Thursday March 20, the draw will be posted Wednesday the 19th, which gives you a whole week to sign up.

    That's it, boys and girls. Let's have some fun!!!

    Because the Bulldogs and Richmond drew, no points there for anyone. You have to actually SAY they will draw (which rarely happens :p)
