Un-Australian to Miss Australia

Posted by hanoiswans on June 23, 2008

Whats worse, putting your tips in and getting less than the automatic score for the away teams (Gus, Phil, 45% of the swans tipstars), or not making an appearance at the Miss Australia training session Saturday morning? (Drew and Sam). Surely it is un-Australian to Miss Australia. Anyway enough of that life changing experience and back to the Tips - Sorry for the disappearance for a few weeks, but here we go.

Recap

Round 10 - 3 votes, “The Bloke” - smashed everyone with the only 8.

Round 11 - 3 Votes, “The Bloke” - was 1 of 3 to get the 8 - but also selecting the correct score, you can’t get any better than that.  Phil and Matty (Bobby Brewers) Johns the other 2 to nab 8.

Round 12 - 3 Votes, “Bobby Brewers Johns - obviously with the opening of the new store on his mind and looking for any free publicity he can get, he dominated this round with 7 and the closest margin of 3. Micky F came in a close 2nd

Round 13 - Considering he wrote a list after this weekend, to come out as the number 1 tipstar is devine intervention. The No 1 Drew snuck in with a lazy 6. M Johns, Damo, The Stray and Lockett 1300 all posted 6’s as well.

So the Leaderboard - 1) The Bloke 83, 2) Deesboy 81, 3) Troggs 81. There are still plenty in the hunt - remember there are millions riding on this competition. Also note the last 3 round are silent - so unless you are Gus or Matty Johns and tell everyone they see who they picked and a game by game summary all across the weekend - it should be exciting. 

Hang in there and keep tipping - TIPSTAR

Round 1 - The Tip Star’s analysis

Posted by hanoiswans on March 25, 2008

Muzza, the Tip Star, will provide an in-depth, comprehensive and timely analysis each Monday (Tuesday, Wednesday or whichever day) of the preceding weekend’s footy action. And, more to the point, he will tell us how the Vietnam Swans’ punters fared with their tipping. Expect the insightful, the pertinent and the outright ridiculous. Here’s the Round 1 analysis:

Well, well, well. The footy season did arrive and it is a shame that some of the Vietnam Swans alleged tip-stars didn’t. Blokes don’t forget to put your bloody tips in - yes you Fabbo Johns.

And whose great idea was it to have celebrity tipsters? The comp is now lead by none other than one of the legendary “Ball Boys”, Matthew Ball. With a margin on the Thursday night game of 7 points, he is in front of “Stray”, “The Bloke” and “Matt777″ who all picked 7.

To say the least, there were some interesting efforts on the weekend.

  • Richmond supporter, Danny Armstrong picked 5 - pity 1 of them wasn’t the team he supports!
  • The Vietnam Swans through the Herald Sun “Kiss of Death” managed a pitiful 2.
  • The Sydney Swans legend, Tony Morwood is mid table with a solid 5.
  • The Vietnam Swans legend, Silver Fox Johns is also mid table with 5 - but was assisted by 2 away tips!
  • Matthew Johns is still lost somewhere in the footy tipping system but has been singing all weekend about the Hawks - a shame he didn’t even get his tips in! (Ed’s note: haven’t you seen his hair recently?) 
  • Luck of the Irish was with “The Boz” who tipped a handy 6 as did Mr Jim Beam, Andy Wall.

So, Round 1 has been run and and won. Well done to all of those who have joined so far.

Remember anyone can join up, follow the details below. The more that join the bigger the prize pool - so far, the winner will pick up 3.5 million dong!
