    2009 Aussie Rules Tipping Contest (All Invited)

    And the big men fly again....



    OK well it's that time of the year again, the preseason is done and dusted (Geelong flogging Collingwood in the preseason grand final) and the real stuff is a week away.

    For those that have no idea what I am talking about, it's Aussie rules football - 26 weeks of sporting greatness bought to you by your friendly down under..uh.. people..

    You have probably seen it on TV in the states, with the crazy people running around with no pads bashing into each other and jumping around. Well it also boasts the 3rd highest seasonal crowd attendances for any football code in the world. It's a big big deal down here. And heres your chance to join in and find out a little about the game and have a little fun along the way

    For years now I've been running this 'pick a winner' format competition on this site, and thrown the doors open to all to join. The interesting thing is we have only had one Australian winner (my missus!). Every other year it has been won by a Canadian or American. DIF's won it a few times. Billys won it. Glenns won it. I don't think OLO has yet but he tries REAL hard!



    Rule changes from previous years:

    Now just for a laugh theres a second knockout competition this year - basically you pick one game a week and pick a winner, once you get a game wrong you are out. Last man standing is the winner. This is in addition to the main 'pick the winner' contest.

    This year we also have the option to have the cut off time 5 minutes before each game - I've taken this up to assist with late tipsters

    Each week, one game will require a points margin between the two teams - this is simply to act as a tiebreaker if two players get the same top score that particular week. THe way I read it, no extra points should awarded for this, it's just for weekly bragging rights.

    Non Submission of tips will allocate the away team to you (as always)

    Draws are worth 2 points if you are brave enough to pick one. All correct in a week attracts a +1 bonus (previously +2)


    So here are the details. Go to:

    - www.oztips.com
    - Login, Or register a new user (I hear theres a lot of questions this year for new users, look for the skip option where available!)

    -Join this comp

    Comp Name: VHLinks.com AFL 2009
    Comp Number: 180536

    Lets get it on!

    Always liked the game. Some really hard hits with no protection. If I ever visit down under I want to take in a game or two.

    Make sure you get your moneys worth and hit a Bomber's game,any other club just isn't worth the price of admission.

    Seasons odds, from Centerbet:


    GEELONG 2.75
    HAWTHORN 3.75
    COLLINGWOOD 12.00
    WSTERN BULLDOGS 15.00
    CARLTON 16.00
    ST KILDA 16.00
    RICHMOND 21.00
    BRISBANE 26.00
    FREMANTLE 31.00
    PORT ADELAIDE 31.00
    ADELAIDE 34.00
    NORTH MELBOURNE 41.00
    ESSENDON 51.00
    SYDNEY 51.00
    WEST COAST 101.00
    MELBOURNE 126.00

    As you can see Geelong and the Hawks are a streak ahead of anyone else.

    I think you could probably draw a line under St.Kilda for a shortlist of possible contenders but getting past the big two on top will be the challenge for these teams

    I'm in...

    Port's odds should be better than that. We'll have a good year this year.

    I agree about the Bombers. they will be around the mark this year.

    How's Freo's odds??? What a laugh. They'll be close to wooden spooners this year, and I think Richmond's odds are a little high as well. Thats probably because Cousins is playing with them... What a joke. He'll be lucky to play half a season...

    Man, I can't believe it starts next week....

    BRING IT ON!!!!

    Being honest I think we are in trouble,injuries have already hit us and we haven't played a game yet.I don't think we will get in the 8 but am hoping at the same time for a little improvement.
    As for Cousins I think he is a massive bargain for the Tiges,I think they can make top 6 with him having a good year and Raines floating across halfback injury free.
    I agree about Port having a good year and think there is an ambush waiting for us on sunday over at footy park.

    Hail the conquering hero!





    His is a story steeped in legend for He, Himself, is legend. A mythical entity who traverses the Earth in search of formidable tipping opponents, DIF is rumored to possess transcendental tipping powers.

    The singular, solitary, lone, only three-time CHAMPION (see trophies above) in the long and storied history of the VHLinks Aussie Rules Footy Tipping Competition, DIF brings His considerable talents to the forefront again this season.

    "You are the McCarthy of this board. The witch burner." - strungout, on yours truly

    "Only Eddymon would claim victory during a FOUR game losing streak." - OLO

    "Did I not say, 'I think we should shoot him!' I did. Double rainbow on this end. I require a high five. Out."- track 5, on the delicate art of banning

    "If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire..."
