Round 23 The Final Wrap
So there it is all Footy Tipsters another year has come and gone for the regular season and also the ODV Footy Tipping Comp.
I hope you have enjoyed the year, either it be again, or perhaps your first year of Sam and mine silliness.
One thing about AFL footy and of course sport in general it throws us curve balls (or should I be saying Banana Kicks) in results and in emotions. I know here in the office the footy season and the footy tipping competition is always a source of much conversation.
I reckon I might send you all out a little quick survey in the next couple of weeks as I would love to know your thoughts about the competition and if you really are enjoying at as I think you maybe. So please if I do get it out please take the time to give me your feedback.
Let’s have a final look though at the numbers that count………
165 ended up being a crapper of a season for the Crows, on and off the field it seems. But they did leave on a high kicking the highest score for the season by any club.
1901 oppositely it was the worst for poor old Carlton. The worst season they have had since 1901 and I am guessing the worst defeat in the last round of the year ever.
10 I am honestly quite disappointed about the Power falling to 10 th spot after being equal 2nd 7 weeks ago. It seemed that all that aggressive recruiting was actually going to pay off but it ended up in disaster
101 Gold Coast finished off a season they would love to forget. It started terrible with them being escorted off their home ground and training ground for the first half of the season to both their captains pulling the pin and finishing with a puff against the Cats and their old favourite Sun Mr Ablett.
2 Friday will determine who wins the Rising Star award for the season. It has got to go to one of 2 choices between Collingwood’s Jaidyn Stephenson, 19, he has become one of the only 3 players in history to register at least 30 goals and 60 tackles in his debut year. The other choice has to be Adelaide’s Tom Doedee, 21, averaging 18 disposals, 5.6 marks (2.2 intercepts) and 3.2 rebound 50s. Who is your money on?
40 All Australian 40 man squad has been released, with Gold Coast & St Kilda the only teams to not get a player picked. Richmond leads the pack with 8 nominations. This year we HAVE to see the 2 best ruckman get included Grundy and Gawn are both too good for one of them not to be picked. And Gawn for the Brownlow. At 17/1 isn’t he a cert?
3 This year there has been some serious problems with goal kicking – The Bulldogs should have beaten the Tigers but their inaccuracy in front of goals killed them.
And now the numbers that REALLY count……
149 the winning score that MITCHBOY accumulated to win the 2018 Footy Tipping comp and with that $800 going straight to his shy rocket. I have tried during the year to get him to send me an email and feedback. Maybe this may get him to contact me and say g’day.
148 HEAFY no doubt will be onto me in a flash. He has been a ODV Footy Tippers for a long many years now and I am sure he will, NO, I know he is extremely excited to finally come through the season with a win even if it is 2nd. Great work Heafy and your second prize of $400.
146 MARC has been around about the top most the year and has managed to score himself the 3rd spot prize of $100. Again congrats!!
145 and sadly there is some runners up and there is 6 of them only 1 tip from the cash prizes. All of you on 145 if you would like to drop around to the office in the next couple of weeks there is a bottle of red in it for you.
Thanks again everyone for your involvement in our comp this year and I so hope that your side is still playing on through September. For Sam and I we have to wait another year for our beloved Crows to play some finals footy again. Although as a surprise I have got my beloved Roosters showing up for a finals match on Sunday so I still got a bit more crowing to go yet. COCK-O-THE-NORTH
