    TD's AFL Tipping Competition

    righto all Aussie Rules footy fans, register your interest to join the TD AFL Tipping comp.

    Costs, none. Winners each week will be entitled to a free drink from each other member, at a time and place of their convenience.

    Deadline for all tips is 4.00pm Thai time each Friday (or Thursday in the case of this week and Easter)

    List your tips on this thread, results will be tallied each monday morning.

    Usual tipping rules apply. Non-victorians are welcome to apply, we'll even allow poms in.

    ie. Tips not in by deadline are not allowed. Punters get the lowest score tipped instead.

    Footy tipping is good for you, national survey shows


    Matthew Schulz
    March 23, 2009 12:15pm

    THREE days from the start of the AFL season, a study shows footy tipping is not only good for bragging rights, but could boost your career.
    A Newspoll national survey on office tipping shows men are twice as likely as women to think their bosses will look favourably on the leading tipster, while three-quarters of tipsters think it improves workplace morale.

    Half say tipping makes the office a more relaxed place to be.

    But be warned, one in 10 men say their office-tipping competition has turned into a battle of the sexes.With the AFL season kicking off this week with the Richmond-Carlton blockbuster at the MCG on Thursday night, the survey of full-time workers also found 69 per cent thought tipping created a connection with other workers, particularly when starting a new job.

    Footytips.com.au’s Heath Kilgour said footy tipping had become an “integral part of the workplace” by encouraging relationships and inclusion.

    “Footy tipping is the great organisational leveler. It doesn't matter if you're the CEO or the intern, everyone is considered equal and importantly, it enables people to strike up a conversation without discussing work or work place politics,” Mr Kilgour said.

    He says tipping is one of the “last bastions of egalitarianism in the workplace”.

    "Footy tipping … is a clear sign from management to employees that we're all equal,” she said.

    But while men mostly thought they dominated the tipping competitions, the research shows in fact men and women were consistently the same.

    The results also show:

    - Males (24%) were more enthusiastic than females (14%) about joining a company with a footy tipping competition;
    - Only 3% would let their boss win;
    - Unmarried tipsters (5%) were more likely to cheat that married ones (1%);
    - 9% thought the boss would look more favourably on the competition’s winner.

    Footytips.com.au boasted 240,000 AFL and 100,000 NRL tipsters last year.

    The Herald Sun’s own football tipping and fantasy games are also generating a growing share of debate between Monday’s experts.

    SuperCoach creator Matthew Pinkney said the fantasy competition, already approaching 250,000 players, let fans see how well they fared as a coach – basing their success on the on-field performance of real AFL players.

    The game is now Australia's biggest fantasy football competition with legendary Essendon coach Kevin Sheedy, Geelong champion Gary Ablett, Hawthorn star Shane Crawford and cricket's spin king Shane Warne among the players.

    Players can even add Sheedy to their league if they want to pit themselves against the best.

    "What we’ve found is that the main attraction of SuperCoach is the private leagues allow groups of workers to play against each other," Mr Pinkney said.

    “It’s a great way the people down the line can sledge their boss and thrash them.

    “And on Mondays it will dominate the early part of the day because people are talking about which players did well, how many trades they have left – which they’ll usually lie about because no one wants to give away an advantage.

    Sorry mate, I'd like to give you a sympathy pick but I have to make sure of the certainties or it's not worth playing.

    I guess so, unless someone else is keen to get it going.

    And I'll forgive the bastards slur since you were smart enough to pick the bombers.

    bring it on. (i love being beaten by girls, NOT) - but she is more than welcome, however, I'm afraid without posted evidence for round 1, she'll have to take the lowest score (which I have not calculated yet) as would anyone else wishing to join at this stage.

    Willy, the usually procedure with late starters in a tipping comp is they are assumed to have chosen all the teams playing away from home.
    That would have given her...

    Carlton
    Geelong
    Adelaide (Boo hiss)
    Weagles
    Sydney
    Roos
    Bombers (Great try, would have beaten any other club in the league)
    Bulldogs

    Of course, just a suggestion, revered one.
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: "A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.

    all suggestions welcome. The comps I've been in usually give the lowest score (rather than away or averages which could actually result in later starters being better off!)

    it's up to you, me and nedders to decide....
