    Should be a good game tonight, Hawthorn vs Geelong, even though I think Hawthorn will win.

    Not long for the finals.

    Re: This Year's AFL Premiers

    Speaking of which, if Joe agrees,
    I'll run an AFL finals tipping contest again this year, the winner is recipient of the Joe Medal, the inaugural winner in 2011 was vkdirector, from the fast finishing IFocus and Tink. The 2011 final standings are in the post a few above.

    Post your tips on the thread leading up to the first finals weekend. I'll post a summary each Monday morning.

    For any latecomers, you start from the lowest score in the field.

    I'll ask Joe if we could have a dedicated thread "AFL Finals Tipping", with the 3 Oct 2011 #666 post above copied over as post #1.

    Hawthorn has recently experienced a mild drop off in performance. Before that it was all guns blazing with big margins. Why aren't the Hawks in the poll?

    Mitchell, Bud and Rioli will need to be in top form for the game vs WCE. Last week all 3 were out. Sydney this week will be a good'un.

    Good on you, Logique, and hope you know we appreciate all the effort you put into the footy tipping :)
    I dont mind leaving it on this thread, as I think its good looking back through the year, but its up to you and Joe - I am happy with whatever you decide.

    Nomore4s and Miss H,
    what a treat for us on Sat afternoon, a great game in prospect. My Swans are a show against your Hawks, who've been excellent this year, I love watching them.

    Tink, I'd rather have a dedicated thread, mainly because I have trouble enough keeping up with thread subjects.:eek:

    +100%

    I'd love to see a GF between Eagles and Crows, which the Eagles could take out;
    but realistically, the grannie will probably be played between Sydney and Colliwobbles with the Swans flying away with the pot by less than a goal.

    Yes, I think it will be Sydney vs Hawthorn GF too.

    Interesting how there is always a preview a few weeks before the end of season, as Sydney and Hawthorn play this weekend.

    Hi folks, I decided to start this thread with Tink's post as I think the results from last year's tipping competition should remain near the end of the old thread. If someone wants to copy them across to this thread, please feel free.

    Also, if there is supposed to be a poll in this thread, can someone please let me know how you would like the question phrased and what the options should be. I don't really follow the AFL too closely.

    Great idea; thanks Joe :)

    Maybe we should have 2 polls:
    1. Grand Final pairing
    2. Winner

    #1 will have probably 45 pairings, assuming that each of the top ten still have a theoretical chance of getting there.
    #2 would need to cover the top ten of the current table only. Given that Freo has already 12 wins, the Saints, needing 2 from 2 to even draw level, can be dismissed. Leaves these ten:

    Pos Team Pts
    1 Sydney 64
    2 Hawthorn 60
    3 Adelaide 60
    4 Collingwood 60
    5 West Coast 56
    6 North Melbourne 52
    7 Geelong 52
    8 Fremantle 48
    9 Carlton 44
    10 Essendon 44

    Carn the Eagles!

    I'm a bit pessimistic about my team's chances this year. The midfield doesn't seem to be firing at the moment. Fingers crossed we win the next two weeks and secure a top 4 possie.

    I'm a Hawks man and hope we can snare 2012 - but to be honest I can't see who will be in the GF.

    Swans - Don't really rate them on the G (don't they only play 1 game a year there?) but will most definitely be amongst the PF/GF mix.
    Hawks - Injuries and will need to be firing...need to get over the Geelong hoodoo
    Collingwood - Injuries and inconsitencies will probably cost them
    Eagles - Not strong enough - especially away from home
    Adelaide - as per above
    Geelong - Could be the outside chance but will hopefully get wiped out early!
    North Melbourne - Not sure how they bounced back after the 115 point shelacking to Hawthorn but good on them. Can't seem them going deep against anybody above them (despite the Collingwood game).
    Fremantle/Essendon/Carlton - Lack the experience/depth to go the distance...
