MB.C AFL/FOOTY TIPPING THREAD

Post by Direkt » Fri Mar 03, 2006 9:30 am

Allo allo... :D

I know we're still a few weeks off the AFL Premiership season kicking off once again, but... I've taken the liberty to start a free MB.com Footy Tipping account with footytips.com.au.

You can join here:
http://www.footytips.com.au/cfm/ft/engine/engine.cfm?r=737701432578&fg=competitions&ff=compinfo&competitionid=43831

^ sorry about the massive link, I don't know how to do the fancy URL stuff....

So join up if you're interested, and if you're not - don't!

TIGERS OR STFU!
:D

not sure what happened to the pies ... it was all going well then it went pear shaped.

too old

too slow

too young

too fast

too many ballroom dancers

no forward line

no backline

no on ballers

no balls

too much eddie chin mcguire

until Don Scott gets the boot and Dermie gets demoted, it's never gonna happen. I'd like to agree with you, believe me - but the club just always self destructs somewhere.

:script:



Friday, one thing my dad taught me... avoid parking your car in a suburb with a footy team named after it... (cause its more likely to get stolen)



ie.. st.kilda, collingwood, fitzroy, footscray, richmond, essendon, north melbourne, carlton etc etc


I dont think this will help you win the tipping though

^ you win the adulation of your peers! And obviously you win the competition - money just makes it too hard to organise getting payments in time, distributing the winnings / weekly winning etc.
