AFL Top 8 Fun Comp

Mates did this and it was a little fun. As we have a tipping comp already from Gilly just do this as fun, or we can get some money together for a end of season prize.
Pick your top 8 teams. Place them in order.
Place getters score points like this, 10, 8, 6, 5, 4,3,2,1.
If you predict a team to come 2nd, and they come 1st you still get the ten point. So realy a top 8 predictor. But if you get a team in the correct spot the points double.
Whoever ends up with the most points win.
Fun even if just bragging rights
Edit: After Home and Away
I go:
1st WCE
2nd Hawks
3rd Freo
4th Cats
5th Richmond
6th Port
7th Sydney
8th North Melbourne

Here's hoping!!

Winner updated below.

Tue, 2016-03-01 22:42

Can only see you winning 12 or so games Andy might not be enough. Haft your team are soft cocks and prone to injuries. Harder this year and to be honest Freo might not figure to high up the ladder. Next year will be better for us when the two star recruits roll up. Just think the toothless ones might be the big improvers as you were last year. And Paully are you alright ? The crows to beat us home.. WTF are you on these days to make you hallucinated like that. LOL

 Lol gotta love your sense of humour mate. I figure we'll win at least 18 games if not more, your boys are on the slide (too old) 

We have a young fit side with plenty of depth, not too many injuries at the moment.

 Who is too old?  Take out

Wed, 2016-03-02 13:49

 Who is too old?  Take out the oldest two, who we have shown we can play without quite effectively over the last couple of years and the average age drops significantly.  Everyone seems to forget the age of some of our young guns, fyfe, neale, bennell, hill, ballantyne, walters.

 

But its good to know we're getting written off again this year.  About this time last year people were saying 6th and below, not going to make the eight...  blah blah blah.

 

Suppose i would rather people have us on the slide rather than the expectation of being the next hawthorn.

Thu, 2016-03-03 14:26

Was thinking about keeping a running score. But would use a spreadsheet to do that. And I am NO Excel etc expert. If there is anyone on here that is good at Excel and can do a spreadsheet that would calculate this we can have a running tally. The first few weeks would be interested.
Please PM if anyone can do it.

Thu, 2016-04-21 17:38

My prediction at the start is looking grim so far. Early days though.
1st WCE
2nd Hawks
3rd Freo
4th Cats
5th Richmond
6th Port
7th Sydney
8th North Melbourne

Here's hoping!!

1 North Melbourne 4 4 0 0 119.4 16
2 Western Bulldogs 4 3 1 0 171.8 12
3 Sydney Swans 4 3 1 0 150.8 12
4 Geelong Cats 4 3 1 0 142.5 12
5 Gold Coast Suns 4 3 1 0 141.6 12
6 West Coast Eagles 4 3 1 0 137.5 12
7 Adelaide Crows 4 3 1 0 124.2 12
8 Hawthorn 4 3 1 0 106.4 12

4 out of 8 in, and 1 in the correct order. Not good

Oh dear
1/3 season gone and looking pretty poor at top 8 predictions.
1st WCE 6th
2nd Hawks 7th
3rd Freo - owen 9 - Goneski
4th Cats - In their correct spot
5th Richmond - 14 - Gonski
6th Port - 10th
7th Sydney - 4th
8th North Melbourne - Numero Uno, but I don't think after the next 6 weeks they will be there

In - GWS, Adelaide, Dogs

Almost forgotten

Mon, 2016-09-19 13:40

But worked out the winner for bragging rights.
What made a difference was getting a team in the correct final spot, and hence getting double points.

1.Sandbar - 39. Doubled up on Roos and Hawks
2. Uncle - 36. Doubled Adelaide
= 3. 33. Scano - Doubled Adelaide. RandallDF, Mulie & Dodgy
=7. 32 Maggott & Hambo
9. 31. Outwide - Doubled Geelong
=10. 30 Hookt (Doubled hawks), Callum24, TomM
=13. 29 Myself (doubled NM) & Dale (Gave him the benefit of the doubt with 2 8th place getters!!?)
15. 27. Seakem
And our NATA (not a tippers arsehole) 25. Paully
