    Default Aussie Rules Thread 2011 - season starts this week - TIPPING STARTS NOW!

    G'day all

    Still basking in the warm glow of PREMIERSHIP GLORY? I know I am!!!

    All that aside, the season kicks off for 2011 on Thursday night Oz time

    However I'm a little hesitant to start the annual tipping contest this year - I get a feeling a few guys have just entered out of habit.

    I don't want ito be something people just feel obliged to do because they always have, so I'm calling out to see whos genuinely interested and who isn't.

    If the numbers are not worth bothering with thats cool - We'll just run a chat thread to discuss the seasons events as they unfold

    So yeh, if your intrested stick your hand up and let me know, but don't fell you gotta because you always have.

    For those wondering what I'm talking abouyt, I have run a 'pick the winner' contest on here for several years for the AFL (Australian Football League) - knowing its a sport largely unknown outside the great southern land, just a fun thing foir the few Aussies on here and a few brave North Americans that might wanna join in for a laugh. As it turns out we've had more winners from overseas than we have had coming from Australia!

    So. Expressions of interest? I'll have to get this happening quick if we decide to go ahead!



    A little zen....... Headed your way.......

    I'll go in it, if you get the numbers. Bomber would have to be interested. Hes a AFL man. I'm up in QLD so we dont have AFL tipping, its all NRL up here (the code with no skills!!!). Put me down if you get it started mate.

    By the way - if you are a tip - forgetter and need to get me to manually enter them occasionally, you need to allow 'admin to enter tips' in the comp setup.

    Ladder predictions?

    -Pies
    -Hawks
    -Dogs
    -Crows
    -Saints
    -Blues
    -Dockers (slow start but home game wins will keep them roundabout)
    -Cats (big slide, will start OK but wearing down)
    __________________
    -Demons
    -Bombers (sorry BOMBER. Not this year)
    -Swans
    -Kangas
    -Tigers
    -Port
    -Weagles
    -Lions
    -Suns

    I'd say the Pies, Hawks, Dogs and Saints are your genuine contenders

    THe group from the Blues down to the Crows will be pretty close together, and could finish in any order.

    Kangas and Tigers to be competative but not really in the running for finals, Port will probably continue their brilliant one week, awful the next form of last year and splutter around outside the 8

    Marginal improvement for the Eagles over last year, and Lions and Suns to have fairly long and dreary 2011. The Suns will at least be getting games into some good kids, The Lions are in all kinds of poo.

    The Crows could be a big bolter. They had a terrible 2010 but were playing better footy with a more aggressive game plan by the end of the year. Bit of fine tuning over the off season and they could be the one to jump up outta nowhere.

    Expansion team. Gold Coast Suns.

    They played in a feeder comp last year. Made up mainly of kids (they got 7 of this years top 10 draft picks) and a few established players jumped over for a big payday (most notably Gary Ablett from Geelong)

    Most intriguing of all is a Rugby League player - the ever intriguingly named Karmichel Hunt - has switched codes. Don't think this has ever happened before, certainly not an established Rugby League start (Hunt was a state and Australian representative in RL). Looks like he'll play a fairly low profile role as a backman.

    Not a lot is expected from their first year, they'll be by far the youngest team playing and will struggle, especially as the season drags on. But they will be a force in 3 or 4 years

    We now have a situation where teams have a bye - Gold Coast are not playing this week, they start next week.

    That will be fixed next year when a second expansion team - Western Sydney Giants - get started, They're based in BLacktown, where I live. I won't be switching though

    and next year..

    Ah, cool. That explains why I didn't see them in this week's tips.

    Thought I'd gotten off to an OLOesque start to the season or something.
