Hey...

Yeah that's fair enough. Hopefully it'll be our year soon, I was pretty happy with how well we did last season. Got some good young blood who we will keep developing

I would actually love to see Footscray get up and win the flag.

Unless they were going up against Port.

Also maybe put the tipping link at the top of the thread, or make it stand out more or something

So I'm going to try something different with my tipping this year, I'm going head to head with myself... I'm going to make a second account, then with 1 account I'm going to do the usual week to week tipping but with the other account I'm going to do the whole season tipping before round 1 and not change anything. See what changes with my opinion of teams throughout the season.

Will probably make a seperate comp so past doug doesn't need to join the PA comp.

Just tip all home teams. Except for few exceptions:
  • Tip Hawks to win every game except when playing in WA.
  • Tip Freo and Eagles to win every game except when playing Hawks in Melbourne.
  • Tip Lions to lose every game except against Carlton and Essendon
  • Tip Carlton to lose every game except against Essendon.
  • Tip Essendon to lose every game.
