EOI - 2008 AFL/NRL Finals Tipping

Just a feeler to see if it's worth running a Finals tipping comp.

No prizes, unless someone is prepared to put something up for grabs, but bragging rights assured for a period of 11 months.

The way I'd have it work is:

- you can tip in one or both competitions.
- for each game, pick a winner and the winning margin (this is important since it's very likely there'll be tied results in tips for so few games). Correct tips score a point each, margins are adjusted and retained to seperate tippers with same number of correct tips at the end of the competition. The margin you choose for a game does not affect the tip otherwise.
- you also have the option of an "Extra time" tip, however if the game in question doesn't go to extra time, you receive no points regardless of the result.
If the game does goto Extra Time, you receive 2 points, or 3 points if you also pick the correct winner.

Note: Extra Time can occur in any NRL Final game where the scores are level at the end of the second half. It can occur in AFL Finals, except for the Grand Final.

- In the event no tips are entered for a given game, the side considered "away" will be assumed.

- Most importantly... Tips must be entered at least 30 minutes prior to the start of each game.
Do not edit revised/new tips into a post if that post contains your tip for a game which has already completed (or just started).

* Bump *

Surprised at the lack of interest.

OK - New Option. Run a finals tipping comp but in it's simplest form.

Just pick winners, no worrying about margins or whether extra time is used?

Don't know if anyone else noticed but they have added the finals series to the site we have been doing our online tipping on.

Yes, I noticed that.

The thing is, it changes the equation significantly so far as our comp goes.

An extra 9 games potentially opens it up for another 8 people to possibly win (although it would have to be a perfect tip run and perfect no-tip run from those at the top).
Not tipping in the finals doesn't give a default choice either, don't tip and you automatically get 0 for the week.

I guess another poll might be in order but only taking posted opinions from those people actually involved in the AFL competition.
