Frequently Asked Questions


When do I pay my subs fee?

As soon as possible please to the treasurers. Click here for details of treasurers.


What is Game 1 total points?

It is NOT the points margin! You have to tip the total number of points scored in game 1 of the round, that is Team 1's points plus Team 2's points. This is used as a tie breaker when working out the weekly winner. Obviously this is not the same as points margin (and harder to tip too!). See rule 5 .


Adding addition tippers under the same email address...

For those tippers that have more than one tipper on one email address (e.g. husband and wife), please register for one of the tippers, then send us an email by clicking here with details for the additional tippers, and we’ll do the rest. Of course if your Family member would rather register for themselves on their own email address, that’s fine too.


Why doesn’t my internet browser save my login details?

The internet browser you use may not save your email and password when you log in to HAT Footy Tipping (i.e. Cookies won’t save the details). This can be a real pain having to re-enter these details every time you log in. More for a hassle for Aurora email, as they can be so long!

How do I get a HAT Footy Tipping desktop shortcut icon?

When you add the Footy Tipping web page to your Favourites in Internet Explorer , the HAT Footy Tipping icon should be shown. Then make sure you can see your desktop and click and drag the icon to the desktop.

Another way to do it is to click on 'Home', then 'File', 'Send', 'Shortcut to Desktop'. That works in Internet Explorer. It should probably work similarly in other browsers.


What do the arrows mean in the Results Sheet?

If there is a single arrow (á or â) next to your name in either direction, who have moved between 20 and 40 places. If there is a double arrow ( áá or ââ) next to your name in either direction, who have moved greater than 40 places.


What does it mean if my name is shown in Red on the Results Sheet?

It means you haven't paid your subs for year- at least according to our records. Click here for the details of how to pay.

Who are Sally Sameagain and company?

Sally and her friends are computer generated tippers who exist just for fun. They give you a clue how particular tipping strategies might work for you. Here's how they tip:

  • Sally SameAgain - Tips the same result between the two teams as happened at the same venue last year.
    • Look at games from last year only.
    • Take the result of a game between the teams at the same venue as the tip.
    • If no games between the teams at the venue last year take the last result between them.
    • If 2 teams play each other twice at the same venue last year (eg Carlton v Collingwood @ MCG) Take the winner when the same team as this year’s game was the home team (Team 1).
  • Harry HomeGames - Tips the official home team ie Team 1
  • Rhonda RealHomeGames - Same as Harry except if the venue is Team 2's home ground, then tips Team 2 ( for 2 Victorian Teams playing at the Dome or MCG, Rhonda just tips Team 1)
  • Johnny Random - Tosses a coin (electronically)
  • Albert AwayGames - Tips the official away team ie Team 2
  • ToteTas Favourites - Tips the favourite according to Tote Tasmania
