    Default Aussie Rules Football Tipping 2010 (all invited)

    And the big men fly yet again....



    OK well it's that time of the year again, the preseason is done and dusted (Western Bulldogs defeating The Saints in the preseason grand final) and the real stuff is a week+ a bit 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.

    Unfortunately explaining the rules to Americans seems akin to explaining heaven to bears, but let's not get too tied up in details!



    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!

    To join in this frivolity, you'll need to allocate a whole 5 minutes of your life per week to :-

    Logging onto the site
    Ticking the teams you think will win

    Thats IT! Shit the odds are even written in beside the teams on the tipping page. It's easier than hearding cats. MUCH easier.

    So get into it, sign up (details coming very soon) and get tipping. First game is March 25th (24th to you - we live in the future down here). Hang out with OLO. Hang shit on OLO. Make silly bets with OLO so he has to iron your wife 3 times a week or somesuch.

    Doo EEET!

    I'm in... Hopefully, I'll do better than last year...

    Great to see the above picture of Tredders opening this thread. Hopefully, it will be a good omen...I'm hoping for a much better year this year for the Power. I'm still pissed off that we changed our home strip this year...

    Holy Crap... It's Footy time again... Sweet.
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Yeh mate.

    Dream team is the AFL one, it's basically the same game, think the same people run it for 'em as the HS one.

    I've had a team in the AFL one for the last couple years (im shit though!) but figured if you guys had teams in one or another we could form a league.

    It would get filled up with randoms but we'd have some bragging rights to see who finished better

    If you do, may I suggest 'OLO the bum' as your new username? 'The crusher' never really crushed anything.

    DIF's back, fellow tipsters! And He's training hard!



    Last season, Three-Time VHLinks Aussie Rules Football Tipping Champion DIF was slightly off His game. He blames the mercury in Jeremy Piven's sushi. And the 'roids platy used. Pinhead from Hellraiser didn't have that many needles sticking out of him.

    But DIF's not bitter. He's the class act whom Michael Anthony modeled himself after. It's been scientifically proven. Geometrically, as well. (Do you have any idea how much money those tests cost? It's Information Superhighway robbery, let Me tell ya...)

    Don't worry, OLO. You've got until the 25th to register. lol
    http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/images/avatars/michael3.jpg

    "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..."
