    Default AFL 2018 Home and Away Round 1 Tips Please (Thursday Night Start) & The Rules

    Putting them up early this year, so you have plenty of time to change your minds several times, tony54 is the current champ, taking it out by a huge margin of 2 from Allover last year;

    AFL Home and Away Round 1
    Thursday, March 22 Venue Local AEST
    Richmond v Carlton MCG 19:25 19:25
    Friday, March 23
    Essendon v Adelaide Etihad Stadium 19:50 19:50
    Saturday, March 24
    St Kilda v Brisbane Lions Etihad Stadium 15:35 15:35
    Port Adelaide v Fremantle Adelaide Oval 16:05 16:35
    Gold Coast Suns v North Melbourne Cazaly's Stadium 18:25 19:25
    Hawthorn v Collingwood MCG 19:25 19:25
    Sunday, March 25
    GWS Giants v Western Bulldogs UNSW Canberra Oval 13:10 13:10
    Melbourne v Geelong MCG 15:20 15:20
    West Coast Eagles v Sydney Swans Perth Stadium 16:20 19:20

    The Rules


    Scoring:
    Pick the winner = 1 points
    Pick the loser = Rick = 0 points

    If there is a draw = 1 point for either tip

    Forget to tip = away game.

    Finals will still be 1 point a game.

    Tips must be posted prior to the start of a game, tips can be changed, again before the game starts.

    I'm stunned! I made the leader board, I wonder how I would have gone had I even joined the parade.

    Sorry, as harsh as it might seem, that was a tip for the losing team in the GF, your one tip for the year, and you lose, total tips correct for the year “0” which of course means you won the wooden spoon and saved Mr. Away Games arse in the process 😂 no prisoners taken in here.....

    So, the first totally clueless guess round....

    Richmond
    Adelaide
    St Kilda
    Port Adelaide
    North Melbourne
    Hawthorn
    GWS Giants
    Geelong
    West Coast Eagles
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    Al,

    The first West Coast Eagles game is actually at the Optus stadium not Perth stadium. It obviously does not really matter - but driving past the stadium a couple of times a week all i see is a huge sign "Optus stadium."

    Cheers and thanks for taking the time to do the tipping again.

    David.

    Thanks David, I will leave it this week, but I have fixed the dbase to reflect Optus Stadium instead of Perth Stadium as that's what I had in my downloaded fixture for the whole year, I had downloaded it a while ago hence Perth Stadium instead of Optus Stadium.
    Cheers
