Tipstars – Round 4 Wrap – Tony or Paul?
Posted by Vietnam Swans on April 15, 2008
Holly Hell – what a round we witnessed on the weekend. Some big efforts from the guns up forward. Fevolution (7 goals) , Bradshaw (5 goals) and Richo (4 goals and match winner) – and an absolute brain fade from Big Bad Barry Hall – that without doubt has been blown out of proportion. Although Staker still thinks he was hit by a herd of Elephants! Some are saying it is the worst hit of all time? Anyone heard of Neville Bruns – perhaps someone should ask him?
To the tips – the standout this week was “The Bloke” – the only tipstar to pick 7 which moves him 2 points clear at the top of the leader board, he was one of only a handful to pick the Tigers to beat Freo- Danny Armstrong (Richmond supporter) of CBA fame is 0-2 when the Tigers have won this year. But Danny was the only tipstar to correctly select the margin of 30 points for Friday nights match.
There was plenty of movement throughout the leader board. Dunstall and Lockett may have been 2 of the best goal kickers of all time – but as tipstars, “Jason Dunstall walks on water” and “Lockett1300″ could put more time into researching the game instead of coming up with creative names. They are in the bottom seven with a few other big names – “Andy Wall, Hawksfan, John Tatnell, Damo and the Vietnam Swans”
So the ladder is starting to open a little. A few suprises last week has meant than tipping is getting a little harder – how long will it take for Port to win a match? How did the Vietnam Swan tipstar know that Barry Hall would get 8 weeks and how will it affect Sydney? The Tigers are they the real deal or a 1 week wonder?
Almost forgot to mention – celebrity tipstar Tony Morwood continues to impress holding down 2nd position again this week. The Tipstar was able to find an old Scanlons footy card of the champ, or so I thought. Apparently on the photo shoot Tony was unable to tame that classic 80′s mullet and asked his brother to stand in.
Happy tipping for round 5 – Vietnam Swans Tipstar
