It's insane how much a person that you've never met can have an affect on the community. It is just shattering considering everything he has achieved, how much he fought to save Melbourne and his fight for his own life. Plus how young he was and how young his kids are. The world loses such great people like Jim Stynes yet there are the worst people imaginable still walking the earth. How is that fair?
And on that note, I'm going to start the tipping before I get myself all riled up again...
***Wrestling Forum’s AFL Tipping Competition***
Sorry again that I completely forgot that the round actually starts this week (bloody Sydney making things difficult for the rest of us again haha!!
To those that have been in past tipping comps before, I’m not changing the rules this year so same deal applies and you can just skip the next few paragraphs. To those that haven’t and would like to participate I’ll give you a quick rundown of how it works and if you need any help, you’re welcome to shoot me a Private Message, or even just ask here.
Tips for the round are due before the first game of each round. I do not accept posting tips in this thread. You have to PM them to me (saves people from editing posts if they screw up their tips).
If I don’t receive your tipping on time, you cop a 0 for the round. You are more than welcome to tip ahead if you’re going to be away or something like that. Just PM me to let me know.
One point is given for each correct tip. Draws are counted as a win so everyone gets a point.
If I have a chance to on Friday or Saturday, I will post everyone’s tips up. Results are then posted at the end of the round on either Sunday or Monday night. Again I’ve been known to be completely off the ball and fall a day or so behind (not a word from you regular tipsters!
), so please be patient with me.
At this point in time, we’re just playing for bragging rights again, unless something else can be organised.
So here we go ladies (if there’s any other than me) and gents. Because the round is split into 2 weeks, the deadline for the GWS/Swans game is Saturday March 24, 7.40pm
and the deadline for the remaining games is Thursday March 29, 7.40pm
. You're also more than welcome to just post everything to me this week if you want.
Also to the new participants, all times are AEST so if you don’t live in VIC, TAS, ACT or NSW you’ll have to work out your deadline time.
