Looking at the tipping, the first round has been absolute carnage. I was the only one to tip West Coast I think.Sydney lose by 1 point.
I hate your team now. I'm out of this competition in the first week.
Should have gone West Coast Ffs.
Has to be a win, I'm afraid.Does the team have to win, or just not lose?
For those of you not acquainted with the idea the rules are very straightforward: everyone who enters selects a team from the AFL each week, if they win you stay in but if they lose or draw, you're out. You can only select the same side once in each running of the competition (so if you select, say, Carlton this week & they win you cannot select them again). The last person left in the competition wins....
It looks like Hawthorn beat Port Adelaide 109 vs 75. Heath is still in the game and has certainly outperformed in this game (when considering I'm already out of the League game!!)I know less than nothing about AFL and will pick on the evocative images each team conjures up.
As a result, I am picking Hawthorn - to commemorate both the wonderful character actor, Nigel Hawthorne and to recognise the imagery seen in sparrows nesting in hawthorn hedgerows.
If I win this, it will be a triumph of art over science!
I expect to be out in the first round.
Not all sports are as unpredictable as AFL, and most are definitely not as even.Which is why I give sports betting, (or any betting for that matter), a wide berth
