    Default 2012 AFL tipping and discussion - A Different Kind of Football!



    It's that time of year again

    Every year for .. a long long time, I have set up a little discussion and tipping thread for the Australian Rules football season.

    This is of course, despite the fact 95% of the people on this site will have no bloody idea what it's about. Thats half the fun. We've only ever had one Australian win the damn tipping. Americans and Canadians somehow dominate this thing.

    Australian Rules football is a pretty unique game, theres nothing quite like it for a mixture of speed, skill and occasional stupidity. Despite only being played to any high level in Australia, it's the fourth highest ranked football code in the world for yearly attendence. Mainly because as a live spectacle, it is just awesome.

    Aussie Rules basics <-Linkie



    To join this years tipping, go to http://www.footytips.com.au and get yourself registered, then to http://www.footytips.com.au/comps/VHLinks_AFL to join the comp. THe password is evh.

    Wondering WTF? Watch this right through....



    First game starts next weekend, season proper the week after.

    2012 Season odds

    COLLINGWOOD $3.50
    GEELONG $4.50
    HAWTHORN $4.50
    CARLTON $9.00
    ST KILDA $15.00
    WEST COAST $15.00
    FREMANTLE $21.00
    ESSENDON $26.00
    SYDNEY $26.00
    ADELAIDE $34.00
    NORTH MELBOURNE $67.00
    WESTERN BULLDOGS $67.00
    MELBOURNE $81.00
    RICHMOND $81.00
    BRISBANE $151.00
    GOLD COAST $251.00
    PORT ADELAIDE $251.00
    G/WESTERN SYDNEY $501

    OK to explain - Aussie sports odds are displayed as dollar paid per dollar bet - so COllingwood is the bookies favorite, paying just $3.50 per dollar bet to take out the whole thing. GWS in contrast is paying $501 as noone expects them to win morew than maybe 3 or 4 games at best - they possibly won't win any (brand new team, mainly full of 18 YO kids)

    Worth remembering as well - these are bookies odds - bookies are not in the game to lose money, and Collingwood fans are numerous and.. excitable.

    Most people seem to peg Hawthorn as the favorite, with Collingwood and Geelong second, and Carlton a little way back.

    Got a huge shock when I heard the news today. He seemed like a great bloke.

    Another good guy taken way to soon.

    Just a heads up to everyone.... The first game of the year is this weekend... Only one game though. The rest are the following week. The AFL are trying to make a big deal about the new GWS team.... Sydney by 150...

    I only found out about this today so I thought I'd let everyone know....In case you didnt.

    Was just about to post about that, cheers Dutchie

    Yeh new team starts up this year in Western Sydney - deep in rugby league territory (also home of the Goo). The team consists mainly of 18 YO kids, and will take a few years to get up to speed. Probably end up a similar scenario to Gold Coast last year, they might snag a win or 2 but will spend most of the year getting spanked.

    Think I might buy a 3 game membership and go watch a couple games though, watched 'em play a few times last year at Blacktown oval (just down the road) so it's kinda cool to see the kids coming through.

    Anyway yeh. Early start this year, season 'proper' gets going next week.

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

    Well the seasons started, GWS beaten soundly - but not disgraced - by the Swans

    They looked pretty well drilled and might snag a couple wins. The two big problems they'll have is kids making newbie mistakes and an apparant lack of goalkickers.

    Coulda been worse!

    GWS 5.7 (37)
    Sydney 14.16 (100)

    ok, they need to get some teeth knocked out or some scars or something - at least mess up their hair. They look more like a boy band than any kind of football team!

    Anyone for a stab at the ladder?

    Think I'll take...


    Hawks
    Pies
    Blues
    Cats
    Sydney
    Tigers
    Essendon
    Freo
    --------------
    North
    West Coast
    Adelaide
    Saints
    Melbourne
    Doggies
    Port
    Brisbane
    Suns
    GWS


    Tigers to bolt up the ladder a bit, they have a decent midfeild and a reasonably potent attack. West COast to drop off, losing LaCras is a big blow and have a few old dudes that will drop off a bit. Melbourne will take a bit of time under a new coach, Saints to drop off, Doggies to drop off, Adelaide could bolt into the 8,

    Freos the one to watch. Not this year, but they are cashed up, have some decent talent, a good (if boring!) coach. Give 'em a year or two to learn the gameplan and fill a few holes and they could (finally) cause some trouble. This year they'll look to stabilise a bit and try to learn to win on the road.
