2019 AFL Football Tipping Contest - $100's in prizes - FREE!

In the world's dumbest business idea since "New Coke", www.Photobucket.com in July 2017 started demanding $US399pa ($A525) for you to use their service to add, or have visible your old images, here, or on other boards. They added a black Ransom icon to your images on global boards, or ebay etc. Some members have used www.IMGUR.com for years, and have had no issues with that. If you have a thread you had photobucket images in, and want to re-populate it, we will move it here - a forum you can edit for MORE than an hour - forever actually, when given Moderator permissions, and you can add in yours and other's pix via IMGUR links etc. Members have saved 100,000 images so far - VOLUNTEER to assist please!

2019 AFL Football Tipping Contest - $100's in prizes - FREE!

Post by gmoney »

Admin Note - The season snuck up on us so the Match 1 on March 21 we will skip, as it will be completed before many see this thread, and start the tipping that counts from Match 2 on Friday night, March 22. :mrgreen:

This is how the thread from 2018 looked - 1,437 posts so it was very popular!

[centre]2019 AFL Football Tipping Contest - $100's in prizes - FREE![/centre]

The 12th annual Stampboards Australian Football League (AFL) Footy Tipping Contest is now open for business for the 2019 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! He has kindly offered to assist where needed.

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 winners out of the first 10 years have been from outside of Australia, meaning anyone, anywhere in the world can win!

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

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

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 continued many year support of this competition.

The prizes are as follows :

First Prize: A $A150.00 Gift Voucher from Glen Stephens, which can be used to 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 67,000+ Nett Priced stamp items on fletches1 huge website - http://stampmall.com.au - good for members globally. A fantastic prize for collectors of ANYTHING philatelic. Discount and sale offers on there each month! :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 2019 AFL season starts on Thursday March 22nd at 7.25pm AEDT and tips need to be in 10 minutes before the start of the first game to count. 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 2019 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 cannot 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. Bonus points will not be awarded if "away team" awarded for any late tips. To earn bonus points your all tips must be entered 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 must be posted before the scheduled start of the first match of the round, whether Thursday or Friday night (Stampboards time-coding will be used to judge exactly when an entry is made).

Any tips entered after a match has started will not be counted and it will be treated as if tips were not entered (away teams awarded as indicated below). So don't leave tipping until the last minute!

If a member does not post their tips in a particular round, 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 match 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 or send 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 just 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 2019 AFL season!
John

Generous offer as always Steve. Was just about to email you on that. :lol: :lol:

As you can see post #1 was done on the fly, and was going to tidy up the loose ends tonight.

Confirming fletches1 prize - hope some members visit the site now, and pick up some goodies from http://stampmall.com.au !

I just went to browse his listings, and found a Greece set for $A90 I can certainly make money on, so if I can do that, collectors CERTAINLY can!


Second Prize: A $A100 e-voucher for any of the 67,000+ nett priced stamp items on fletches1 huge website - http://stampmall.com.au - good for members globally. A fantastic prize for collectors of ANYTHING philatelic. Discount offers on there each month!

It was very much a game of 2 halves...but not in the tradition sense of that term.

Richmond won Quarters 1 & 4 by a cumulative total of 62-9 (53 points)

Carlton won Quarters 2 & 3 by a cumulative total of 55-35 (20 points)

Meaning of course Richmond won the game overall by 33 points.

As is often the case with young/developing teams, they find it very hard to be competitive for a full 4 quarters. When Carlton were on top, Richmond was still able to score and limit the damage, but the reverse was not the case when Richmond was dominating.

Biggest concern for Richmond from the game is the knee injury to star defender Alex Rance.

Yes, I confirm that my intentions was to tip
Western Bulldogs defeating Sydney
Essendon to defeat GWS Giants.

Are they really bad or is it because I didn't shorten the names properly?

Hi all, I'm interested to take part for the first time and to learn what AFL is all about.

Here's my picks:

Collingwood
Melbourne
Hawthorn
Sydney
West Coast Eagles
St. Kilda
GWS Giants
North Melbourne

Thanks Bunge for sending the email reminding me that it's started!

A couple of questions:
1. What's the origin of the word "tipping"? ... Aussie slang, I assume. :D
2. What's the best App for me to download on my phone to follow it and learn?

Thanks, I look forward to the season.
Regards,
JimFegy - Always something new to learn.

Not sure if that use of the word ''tipping'' is used in the UK etc, but here it is very widely used for guessing results of any kind of sporting events etc. Horse race tipping etc. I think we have had 2 North American winners of this in the past, who had never seen a game before, so you are in good company!

Someone on cable in Canada will have the games I am sure. In case you cannot find one, the AFL have an app advertised here - https://www.watchafl.com.au

Good Luck. :)

No the only reason I asked was that you had the above highlighted line in your tips with both Essendon & Sydney mentioned.
