2020 AFL Football Tipping Competition - 3 Valuable Prizes!

Post by gmoney »

2020 AFL Football Tipping Contest - $100's in prizes - FREE!


The 13th annual Stampboards Australian Football League (AFL) Footy Tipping Contest is now open for business for the 2020 season, and all members GLOBALLY are welcome to join in the fun. 8)

For the first 10 years, Norm (fromdownunder) ran this competition and put in 1000's of hours of his time in the process. Norm decided to "hang up his boots" in 2017 and I have volunteered to take over the running of the competition .... not sure I can ever fill Norm's boots though!

You don't have to have any knowledge of Australian Rules Football to be able to enter this competition. The winners in the first 2 years had never seen a game of Australian Rules Football between them in their life!

Indeed there have been winners from outside of Australia, meaning anyone, anywhere in the world can win!

Over the first 11 editions of this competition, there were 11 different winners, last year providing the first repeat winner!

The AFL season runs for over 5 months with 23 rounds of tipping involved. It would be appreciated that members only enterthe competition, if they intend to continue competing for the entire season.

Between rounds banter, and discussion is actively encouraged, so this thread is used for all things Australian Rules Football related as well as for tipping.

We will have 3 prizes which will be awarded to the top 3 tipsters at the end of the season. These are well worth the 5 minutes per week that it takes to tip.

Thank you to the 3 prize sponsors for their many years of continued support for this competition.

The prizes are as follows :

First Prize : A $A150.00 Gift Voucher from Glen Stephens, which can be used to purchase or part purchase anything from - http://www.glenstephens.com/rarity.html or that Glen has listed on the sales forum here on Stampboards - http://tinyurl.com/StampDeals

Second Prize : A $A100 e-voucher for any of the 70,000+ Nett Priced stamp items on fletches1 huge website - http://stampmall.com.au - good for members globally. A fantastic prize for collectors of ANYTHING philatelic. Discounts and sale offers on there each month! Check it out. :mrgreen:

Third Prize : Kevin Morgan has again kindly donated an annual "Stamp News" subscription within Australia valued at $99.50 (An overseas winner only needs to pay the extra post cost) OR a THREE Year Digital subscription globally - https://stampnews.net.au/

Members here are most welcome to offer up small spot prizes for any particular round throughout the season, should they wish to add some extra fun and competition.

If you wish to offer something for a round, or for a special reason, please post in the thread, including the terms and conditions of the particular competition, and a scan of your proposed prize then at the completion of the round, please post the winner ASAP. It is preferred that the person offering the competition looks after it themself, but if any help is needed then I will try to assist.

It would be good to see a few of these competitions offering small prizes throughout the season, particularly in the second half of the season. This will keep interest going for those who may have joined part way through and for those who may not be in contention for the main prizes.

The 2020 AFL season starts on Thursday March 19th at 7.25pm AEDT. So don't wait, there is no skill required to play and it is completely free, with the chance of winning great prizes!

The Rules:

A list of the next round of AFL matches will be listed after the conclusion of the each round.

The full 2020 AFL fixture can be found here : http://afl.com.au/fixture.

All you need to do is tip which team you think will win each of the matches to be played each round.

One point will be awarded per correct tip or for a drawn match .... draws can not be tipped. A drawn match will be counted as a win.

If anybody tips all winners in any given Round, 2 Bonus Points will be awarded to that person. To earn bonus points you must have entered tips for all matches that round before the start of the first game of the round.

The total number of correct tips will be aggregated over the entire season and the prizes will be awarded to the 3 tipsters with the most points accumulated over the 198 games of the season.

I will post results of all matches, the progressive AFL ladder, a progressive list of where you stand on the Stampboards tipping contest ladder and the draw for the following round after the conclusion of each round.

All tips for the round must be posted before the scheduled start of the first match (Stampboards time-coding will be used to judge exactly when an entry is made).

Any tips entered after the first match of the round has started will not be counted and it will be treated as if tips were not entered (away teams awarded as indicated below). There will be no exceptions! So don't leave tipping until the last minute!

If a member does not post their tips in a particular round (or they post after the first match has started), they will be awarded the away/visiting team for all matches. (The away/visiting team is always the team listed second in the fixture). Failure to post in 3 consecutive rounds, without providing a reason for not posting, will see you removed from the competition.

Tipping posts are not to be edited. Once you enter your tips, they can not be changed, so make sure you check your tips carefully before posting. If you forget to tip a match, you may make another post to include that match tip, so long as it is before the round starts.

If a member knows they are going to be away, and unable to enter tips at some point during the season, it is fine to post tips in advance....please ensure that they clearly show which round(s) they are for.

Members can join the competition at any point during the season. Any member joining after Round 1 will be given an aggregate total of the average score for each of the rounds that have already occurred before they joined the competition.

If there is a tie for any of the prize positions at the end of the season, the winner will be chosen by a count back system as follows :

First tiebreaker – Fewest bonus points earned during the season. (i.e. most individual correct tips).

Second tiebreaker (if needed) – Good old fashioned count back, starting with most rounds with 9 correct tips, then most with 8 correct, then 7 correct etc.

Third tiebreaker (if needed) – Most correct tips in Round 23, then most in Round 22, then Round 21, etc.

Final tiebreaker (if needed) – If by some miracle they have tipped identical totals every one of the 23 rounds (don't ask me to calculate the odds on that!), the winner will be the person who placed their tips earliest for Round 23.

As you are aware, this is my second year at running this competition (or any major competition) and I am finding the challenge just a tad daunting, my anxiety has been higher than usual the past few days!

I will do my best to try and get updates posted as quickly as possible.

If you have any reason to contact me regarding the competition, you may either post here in this thread but I highly recommend sending a board email directly to me. I will attempt to reply quickly, but there will be times when my life may cause there to be some delay, so please be patient.

Please also understand that I am human and as such, am prone to make mistakes. If you believe I have made an error, please post on the thread, indicating what you feel is incorrect, and I will look into it ASAP.

Best of luck to everyone who enters and lets have some fun while following the 2020 AFL season!
John

For those who have played in the past, please note that there is one minor adjustment to the rules.

All tips for a round must be entered before the specified start time of the first game of the round.

Any tips entered after this cut off time will not be counted and the away team will be awarded.

There will be no exceptions.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

My ticket to a "non spectator" game at the MCG. I suspect they will delay the start of the season.
There is a certain irony in the AFLs motto "Don't Believe in Never"
They seem to have predicted the future.

Hey Sheriff Glen,
What makes you think my fellow Magpie fans know the two times table ?

1. No crowd of more than 40 people per ground is permitted. The figure over 40 was chosen with Collingwood fans in mind - guys that is the number of your fingers and toes multiplied x two.

As for your rule 2, that might help your boys this year.

Hopefully we can get the full 17 rounds in, which will mean a much fairer draw than we have had in nearly a century. Big Saint, there's some homework for you. We grew up with 18 rounds between 12 clubs - that was not a fair draw. Did all VFL clubs ever play each other twice, I wonder.

Good luck to all and thanks again for all involved in making this fun competition happen.

It appears the start time of tonight's match has been put back to 7.40pm AEDT, so tips can be posted until then as per the rules, after the start time of tonight's game, there will be no tips allowed.

rmills wrote:Hey Sheriff Glen,
What makes you think my fellow Magpie fans know the two times table ?

1. No crowd of more than 40 people per ground is permitted. The figure over 40 was chosen with Collingwood fans in mind - guys that is the number of your fingers and toes multiplied x two.

As for your rule 2, that might help your boys this year.

Hopefully we can get the full 17 rounds in, which will mean a much fairer draw than we have had in nearly a century. Big Saint, there's some homework for you. We grew up with 18 rounds between 12 clubs - that was not a fair draw. Did all VFL clubs ever play each other twice, I wonder.

Good luck to all and thanks again for all involved in making this fun competition happen.
I don't think anyone was too worried about it.

If I remember correctly in 1980s they played 22 rounds & played everyone twice. The West Coast & the Bears upset the applecart when they were admitted into the VFL. :)

I am sorry but as per rules this season, you must enter tips before the start of the first match of the round. If you don't get them in on time, you receive ALL away teams for the round.
gmoney wrote:All tips for the round must be posted before the scheduled start of the first match (Stampboards time-coding will be used to judge exactly when an entry is made).

Any tips entered after the first match of the round has started will not be counted and it will be treated as if tips were not entered (away teams awarded as indicated below). There will be no exceptions! So don't leave tipping until the last minute!
