The Tipstar strikes back - Rounds 5,6 and 7

Posted by hanoiswans on May 13, 2008

Sorry for the delay lads - its been 3 action packed weeks since the last post and there has been plenty happening. Lets get into it!

Round 5 - What can I say, “The Stray” - brained the lot of us - the only bloked to get 8! A clear winner - take some time to check out the cracking photo of the Mighty Joe on the site. Daylight to everyone else - Damo and the Vietnam Swans, not so Fabo with 3.

Round 6 -  what a week a difference makes in tipping - Tipstars all round.  8 got 8. G Train Gus, A Wall, Troggs, Deesboy, Chris B, Tony M (not Boney M), RS (Rory) and the out and out winner - Jason Dunstall Walks on Water.  Almost could be called a “Bevy or a Wedge” of Swannies - look it up, apparently that is the term for a group of Swans - bevy who would have thought!

Round 7 - much tougher this round - for some. Fabo Phil, Damo, Snags and Mark Procter (all with 3)- bit early to start tanking - especially considering there is no last prize in this elite comp. Consistancy coming though with Rory S taking the chocolates with a game margin of 5(eye). Deesboy, Uncle Crow and Be Careful all starting to make their move up the ladder. Speaking of…………

Ladder - at the top of the heap - Deesboy is the leader with a better total margin, closely followed by Troggs - both on 45. They are setting a cracking pace, only to be hottly chased by Tony M, who is “That Bloke” and who else but, “The Stray” round out the top 5. The bunch has started to settle nicely and I think that it is time the Tipstar made a few…………….

Predictions - “Boz” is making steady ground. He is on the move and is a smokey for the title. Also up there at a bit of value is “Be Careful’, but I think that “The Bloke” is the 1 to watch. Hates being a front runner so get in his ear.  May champions are an easy pick - Golden Boots Gus (pressure) and the “Stalwart” from the country will fade to mid table.

So - last but not least - it is time for me to chase the coin - in the next week I will hunt everyone who hasn’t paid down - probably a few who have. (Yes Danny Armstrong I know I owe you 50,000 dong. ) Next week I will tally it all up and see what the stakes will be. Hang in there and keep tipping.

PS - for the not so die hard Aussie Rules supporters - this picture is of JEZZA and is accepted as being the greatest mark to have ever been taken in the history of AFL!
