the bears are a liability but they know where the honey is so I'm following :)
Silas has burst into the lead with a good last round, I'm guessing Silas is jambo's brother ?

first game looks a cracker chiefs v raiders, home game for the chiefs but I've picked the raiders... give them hell :)

bears have a tough task with the lions at home but coming off a win they might do something special, though the lions are coming off 4 wins lol

gutsy win by the giants over the cowboys, I actually watch the game yesterday and there was some great defence by both teams the giants just had on awesome 3rd quarter and racked up 10 points to lead 10-7 into the 4th and then just ground out a stellar defensive effort; cowboys had there chances in the last but the home crowd had the giants pumped on a cold new york day.

BE has had a awesome round, 13 points with one to play N1

Well it's Xmas Eve over there, they are getting the games done a day early so they aren't playing on Xmas day. Which means I've been able to enjoy NFL Red Zone on Foxtel for 3 hours this morning and there was 3 hours of it before then, for those who haven't seen it NFL Red Zone just cuts between all the games that are playing at the same time and replays of awesome plays that they miss when they are showing a different game.

This Seahawks Cardinals game, holy crap.

Terrible round of tipping for me, Cleveland actually won a game... but it was all worth it to see this live



First man ever to throw a touchdown pass and sack an opposing teams quarterback in the same season.

Next year I promise to be way more organised with the tipping comp! This year has been kinda crazy with the constant travel and setting up the comp like 1 day before the season started.

Silas is our grand champion of the regular season tipping with Mini coming in a close second with Butterfly effect only behind on points!

You mean no one else is tipping the Play-Offs?

Looks like the Giants are out (as expected) - hopefully there is a team left that can beat those cheating Patriots!

Holy shit... I do better when I have no idea what I am tipping.
And understandable this year Doug, we can give you a little leeway... just don't let it happen again ;)

Also Kharis is on the same score too, just missing the better margins. Really close finish for second in the end

And yes I will be tipping the Play-Offs... he did mention that it was end of regular season winner

Yeah still tipping the play offs but the footy tips website seems to have created a new ladder for the play offs.

that was a great offensive effort from the Packers, Green Bay sent the New York Giants packing; great to see a quarter back throw his team to a good win, quality game :)

and this monday NFL is awesome :D

Gronk is on the IR list so there's no chance of accidental deflation.

1 from 2; was hoping the packers would pack some heat but the falcons done good; watch the Patriots clean out today to setup a very fine superbowl... and I'm with the New England Patriots... 21:7 :D

Was really sure it was going to be a Packers/Patriots Superbowl but it'll be a great game with the Falcons, If it wasn't the Patriots playing I'd be 100% behind the Falcons, they've never won the big one and as a Western Bulldogs fan I know excatly how all their fans are feeling right now and how they'd feel if they do win

we're on the same page doug, packers v p's would have been awesome... the falcons can deliver a real sweet outcome to this season and have setup a very cool superbowl. would be nice to see the falcons win but the P's have it done imo

should be some pass throwing madness :D

I'm both over the moon ecstatically happy and filled with blinding rage.

I had a full blown social media/internet black out all day. Then not even 30 mins after the game was over I get an email on my phone from the pats trying to flog their championship merchandise. I didn't even know I was one their mailing list, must have been added when I signed up for a trial of the NFL network a few years back I've never gotten an email from them before not even for their 2015 Superbowl.

I have some ice cold Coors in the fridge, My better half got all the stuff to make Hotwings and Nachos. Still going to watch the game and do it all up but damn it would have been better to go in unspoiled...

Next year I'm taking the day off.

still great to watch, an amazing ride; some of those throws were sublime, dropping them on the outside of the receiver... Brady one of the best :D

The Pats didn't win the game, the falcons lost it. Who the hell makes 2 pass plays which fail miserably, putting yourself out of field goal range?!?!? Take your time with the snap to waste clock time, run the ball and even if you lose a couple of yards (compared to 20-30odd), you're still in field goal range, putting you two scoring opportunities in front. Game won.. FUCK!
