Weekly Blog - Round 21 by Craig
First up congrats to Kerry Gunn for taking the weekly win last week , and well done to Richard Bennett, Alanna Cannon, Billy Godwin, Jarad Hughes, Diane Izbicki, and , Karen Jenkins for managing to find a winner each week of the hot Tips 2 competition. It finished up being impossible in round 20 when 8/9 away teams lost, and everyone had already used the only winner, Melbourne.
A quick plug for our always improving results sheet. The trained monkeys have been working hard. You can see last week’s version here: Round 20 Results. I particularly like the AFL Ladder Round By Round. You can use it to answer the trivia question: “Which team other than Geelong, Melbourne, and Brisbane, has held top spot on the AFL ladder for at least one round this season?” The answer might surprise you.
Anyway – on to round 21….
It all gets underway on Friday night with the battle for second place on the ladder, and Melbourne’s chance for revenge over Collingwood. Not many tipped Collingwood on Queens Birthday, and I suspect that might be the case again this week. But, with 10 wins on the trot how can the Pies not be favourites?? It’s a mystery.
Other finals shaping games over the weekend include:
- Bulldogs v Freo at Marvel. With their season on the line I reckon the Dogs can get it done.
- Geelong v St Kilda at Geelong. You’d expect the Cats to be too professional at home, and see St Kilda drop out of the eight. Sorry Brian.
- On current form Port are likely to knock off the Tiges at home.
- And Carlton’s trip to the Gabba to face Brisbane is likely to be disappointing.
You’re on your own for the other games, just make sure you get your tips in for the chance to win the week.
NEW TIPPING ENTRY PAGE
The trained monkey has finally put the bananas away and come up with the new tips entry pages (similiar to what it like on the old HAT Footy Tipping page). Ironically, the Survey Monkey method of entering tips is no longer.
You will notice that the tips showing for future rounds are tips based on your ladder predictions you did at the start of the season. Check out Rule #8 of how they are worked out. If you don't enter you tips for a certain round your ladder tips are used. So depending on how good your ladder was at the start of the year will be a factor here.
