If we were to know whose tips were entered, and then lost, and not re-entered through no fault of their own, would it be fair to give them the equal lowest score for the round, even if it was 0.
Not saying we have to, just it's what I do with our own internal footy tipping comp, ( even if they didn't submit their tips on time, it helps to keep them in the comp).

It becomes patently obvious after 2 rounds, that a certain teacher from Sydney has inside knowledge of the results in advance.

We therefore have to decide do we

a ) Dob him into the anti-corruption squad, and "out" V8 Supercars racing as rigged, or

b ) We interrogate him for his tips 2 days before the next round and rush out to find a bookie or whatever and throw a sqiullion onto whatever he has tagged for the weekend :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey , can someone check for me if my tips were registered on Friday, I got 0 points this round which either means :

1. My tips didn't go through or
2. This round was an epic fail

If you miss your tips in the Footy - you get the away teams - who were the away teams for this round - anyone who isn't from Tasmania - I will take that :)

Ok, let me first apologise to those who had tips entered and then had them removed. It was an unavoidable lesson in running a tipping contest. However, I have the revision history of the document that saves all of our tips so I will go through them today and any tips that were entered prior to 2:52 26th March for any tipsters that received 0 points for this round will be credited. If you tipped after this date then I will not be changing those tips as they are your most recent.
Sorry once again but this wont be repeated.

Thanks John, I am certain mine were sent prior to 2.52pm Friday. Fingers crossed they are somewhere as a backup

Thanks John, your doing a great job,

I have ran these things before and you get little credit when working but when it goes wrong everyone hates you.

Thanks for putting in the effort into get this going.

Agree John doing a great job.

It wouldnt surprise me if you did get my tips and I still got 0 points because of my sheer reverse brilliance in tipping comps!

Okay, points have been adjusted with the retrieval of the previously lost tips.

Only 3 tipsters failed to enter their tips this round - chewycar, English St and Critical Times. One new tipster for Round 2, who wasn't present in Round 1.

If you need confirmation of what you picked, then send me a PM, I'll gladly advise what you picked.

As you can see we don't have a pretty website that allows tipsters to review their previous tips or adjust entered picks for rounds. Certainly time didn't allow anything to be done, hopefully for next year we'll have something a bit more interactive.

Cheers

Bollocks. Completely forgot. I don't even have a good excuse...

I would have had a huge haul of points too. Oh well.

Great job guys.

So moving forward do we need to do anything extra with the current format or do we need to PM you guys to confirm tips are in?

You can ignore that suggestion if it just complicates things.
