    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Round Twenty-Three Tipping Update

    Decent scoring across the board, with only the Tigers/Power tie eluding our combined forecasting.

    Star performers were the bench and dav, who each nailed the other nine fixtures.

    SBI did miss the week's first fixture, but as everyone went for the Hawks he gets a point anyway.

    No tips from Johnners or Jono, so round's worst, etc

    Weekly

    skd 8
    Benchy 8
    Brumby 7
    morgie 7
    HDS 7
    howard 7
    altoz 6
    Spikey 6
    SBI 6

    Jono 6
    Johnners 6


    Weekly extras to the aforementioned Roos fans.

    Welcome onboard to SBI, who proves it's better late than never. He joins on the lowest minus one (Spikey's 104 - 1 = 103).

    Final Standings

    1) howard 153.12
    2) altoz 147.10
    3) morgie 147.07
    4) Brumby 146.07
    5) skd 142.09
    6) HDS 142.05
    7) Jono 141.06
    8) Benchy 141.04
    10) Johnners 121.01
    11) Spikey 110.04
    12) SBI 109


    As one understands, for some unearthly reason, CW's AFL tipping doesn't traditionally include the finals, so that will be yer lot.

    Hearty congrats to howard, who's frankly had it sewn up for weeks but that in no way lessens the achievement. Truly a god amongst mere men.

    The minor medals to tozz and morgie. Thanks to all who rook part and some other **** can run this next year.

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu. Wanted to beat Jono.

    Congrats to Howard. The **** almost tipped as many winners as the number of teams he supports.

    Ch33rs for running it Brumbeh. I believe it's time to pass the organisation baton onto Spikey. Good luck next season Spikey.

    And Brumbeh -

    Are you running the AFL/NRL finals tipping competition this year? Quietly confident of taking it out this year given my NRL LMS form.

    Mid table obscurity! And defeated Benchmark - albeit marginally. I'll take that after my abortive DT performance this year.

    If they make the winner of West Coast v North play the loser of Collingwood v Hawthorn, as the first semi final (which is what it is slated as on AFL website) on Friday 14 September, it will be the biggest farce ever.

    5 day turnaround (plus travelling from Perth in the case of the Eagles, or back from Perth in the case of North) versus a 7 day turnaround.

    Someone dig up the history of past results of AFL tipping on CW.

    Will probably go back to 2004 or 2005. But we may have missed a year in between.

    Hey Spikey

    I live in Europe and still tipped the same amount as you.

    Not sure the point of kamikaze... so you think by picking teams you know aren't going to win you're going to get more tips right? Seems counter intuitive to me.

    In summary: me > you.

    The Tigers, if they want to contend with this group, should be at the stage that North are now...scraping into the finals and showing some real steel.

    As it is, their supporters will be less optimistic going into this preseason than they were going into the last one.

    Better than tipping the same as Howard and knowing I have no chance of winning.

    And surely you did the same thing? You tipping the teams you know aren't going to win is the only explanation for why you're such a **** tipper year in year out
