Hi guys and gals,
Just throwing out the idea of a Swellnet footy tipping comp.
Now I'm talking AFL, none of that other rugby stuff, I think Bombora may start up a comp for that.
So register your interest here and if there's enough people I'll set up a comp on Oztips of Footytips.com.au
I'm in like sin Craig!!!
I'm the scab you keep picking off and is there again the next day.
Yep im in, GO the PIES!
I'll be in, too Craig. Can't let you southerners take all the glory.
But you have to have a go in my NRL comp, too.
yeh! i'm up ! Go West Coast!
The Pies should go well this year, I hear all the players have met all the bail conditions set by the court. And with good legal advice should be able too postpone all court proceeding till October. See you on Anzac day.
I've got no idead about NRL but i'll give it a shot. I'll set one up closer to the kick off date.
Carn the Crows!
Yeah for sure ill do it keep us updated
Essendon Premiers 2010! yew!
Peace out Zac
Doggies are going to do it this year,Barry Hall just kicked 4 goals in his first quarter with them. Awsome!
Yeah mate that sounds sick.
Year of the Saint!
Been enjoying some close games during the NAB Cup and like the look of the Bulldogs with Hall in there. He played a great game last Friday and we'll see how he goes this Friday against Port.
Only a few weeks to go so I'll get the comp up and started soon.
What website will you guys have this comp on??
And will there be any Prizes??
Yeah, we'll see what we can rustle up for prizes.
ANd I'll set it up through footytips.com.au if that's fine with everyone?
Edited to change tipping comp to Oztips
I give up Craig.
That's the most confusing site to navigate I've ever run across.
Been f*cking around now for half an hour joining, logging in, finding the Swellnet comp.
Done all that.
Cannot for the life of me work out how to actually register tips. I've clicke don every active link on the page.
I might go back later and try again.
Never had a problem on a website of any kind before.
Hmm, I'll have a look and get back to you. If there are issues I'll just put it on Oztips
I might have been spoilt but oztips is just so easy to log onto and go straight to your private comp(s).
Among other things the bloody thing signed me up for a "local" comp run by the local newspaper even though I didn't ask for it, just because I nominated NRL as my favourite sport.
If you stay with them, I'll have another go at signing up. I've deleted my original membership. Obviously I didn't untick a box somewhere but..........

Anyone see the NAB final on Saturday night?
Dogs are looking pretty potent with Hall up forward!
He's such a prominent target for them up forward and intimidating as well!
Can't wait for the season to start.
So cummon guys and gals, sign up to the Oztips comp :)
Okay, just joined up to both lol....
I guess we are using the Oztips now then....Anyway Hall was on fire on Saturday night, not looking forward to facing the Dogs in round 1

Too many sydneesiders on this forum....
Alright I'm in
Go the TIGES!!! Another decade coming up maybe we will see you win a premiership in this one?
Haha yeah, but hopefully the Victorians, South and Western Australian's all get into it!
And one Queenslander!
first post :) thought i would join in on this tiping comp... 2nd Queenslander :D
We've got 8 people now but it would be good to get a few more.
First round is tonight so sign up today and get your tips in by 7pm AEDT
Carn the Crows!!!
Oh and also people in the tips note that there is a knock out comp, and you select your team below the normal tips.
Woo who! I'm in.
Soo, who tipped Richmond and are down already....
what was that knock out comp??? people that tipped less are still in :'(
You had to pick one team that you though would win, and if that team didn't win you got knocked out of the knock out comp.
It's only something for fun.
The tipping is the more important stuff.
Crows played great...
Sweet, pretty happy with my tips thus far. On another comp I got all 8 :(......What a win by the Pies, so please with that :)
Now that the Crows have finally won a match I think I can come out of the woodwork.
I have to say this season is shaping up as a cracker with Collingwood, Sydney, Geelong and the Dockers looking in good form.
Tonights game should be a good measure on how good Freo really are!
Not going to well in the tipping due to the poor performance of the crows, but there's still a bit of time to make some ground!
Tigers had a win, WOOHOO!!! :o Was getting worried they'd have to go pants down at the end of the season.
Now if only they can win every match from here on with a 300 point margin they have a chance to make the top 8. :/
Haha, very optimistic PR.
Good to see them beat Port though :D
I'm in again. We've got a couple of weeks to get a good crew together.
Say 'I' if you want in.
Why the hell not. I'm in.
excuse me, loyal subjects why on this great planet of mine would anybody want to play those cretinous games? boofheadball or thugby? to top this all off you want to "tip" on them, tip what? tar? rotten fruit? full ashtrays? i do belive that i set a better example for all of you to follow than that do i not? well i must say i am bismerched. tipping things on people is not the way to go. if you are tipping something and looking to other sports (is there any other sports other than semipro mal comps?) does that not affect ones surfing? if you need to see grown men act like children then go your local pub im sure that you will see it there. now before you all get on the "bigwaynes a big girl" bandwagon why can we not follow boxing? i as you can imagine have 22 world heavyweight titles to my name (one for each voice in my head) now that is a mans sport. no running away from each other like the other forms of "manly" pursuits. now i am sure i have upset someone today and for that i am truly sorry but i feel it necessary to right the wrongs of my (not so) loyal subjects. feel free to abuse me if you want im used to it from the lower classes anyway and if there is no abuse then i have gotten through to the great unwashed and maybe we could get back to the surfing. this site is for surfing not football.this rant was bought to you by the undisputed bigfella himself and all round top bloke
showing your age once again i'm afraid bigwayne. Boxing has been replaced by UFC, much in the same way as snowboarding has replaced skiing (at least for anyone under 40 years of age). The average fight fan is sick of seeing the farcical mismatches that prevail in the boxing fraternity due to cowards like anthony mundine being able to handpick some washed up paul briggs to beat up live on main event. This situation is avoided in UFC as all fighters are contracted to the UFC and are told who they are to fight - even legends of mixed martial arts will end up with win/loss records of perhaps 25-11 instead of the 40-2 commonly seen in boxing. Sure there is the occasional fight that finishes within the first round, however the difference is that in UFC they are ended by a knockout or submission due to a choke or the threat of a broken limb while in boxing they end when a glancing clip on the ear forces one "fighter" to realise that the money is already in the bank so he might as well take a dive.
Good call scoopmaster, now back to AFL footy tipping comp.
Only 1 week actually. I think it kicks off this week. Thursday?? So 2 days.
OK, as bombora has pointed out, the footy season starts on Thursday so here are the details to join up.
