AFL Beat 2018 – Round 12 Part 2

As mentioned yesterday, the remaining intrigue of Round 12 was who would win the Queen’s Birthday game held on Australian Monday between the Melbourne Demons and the Collingwood Magpies and how that would impact the standings.

LET’S GO TO THE VIDEOTAPE!

Oh kids, if you’re a Pies supporter,  you enjoyed this game! The Pies led throughout, were challenged in the second quarter,  but persevered and pulled ahead for good in the second half.

Let’s take a look at the ladder, shall we?

Footy Tipping Contest

This was a surprisingly difficult week to tip as everyone got at least 2 wrong except for Litre who kicked butt and moved closer to the leaders.  Here are the standings after Round 12:

P TIPPER Round Tips Round Margin TOTAL Tips TOTAL Margin
1 SonOfSpam 5 5 76 278
2 Spanky Datass 4 25 76 325
3 Sunrisesunrise 3 30 75 327

10 JPF 4 27 60 358
11 nomonkeyfun 3 14 58 311
12 Game Time Decision 4 36 53 402
13 blaxabbath 3 14 48 357
14 Sharkbait 3 14 46 400

The competition is hot and heavy with a lot of movement all over the table.  Unfortunately,  two tipsters failed to put the footy tips in,  so I’m going a different direction this week.

That’s right.  Ass-eating gifs for those that forget to stick the tip in…

Round 13

Here is the schedule for this week (all times Pacific):

Thursday, June 14, 2018

2:50 AM (Late Wednesday Night) – Port Adelaide Power v Western Bulldogs at Adelaide Oval

After an Australian Friday Night game at home, the Power now play an Australian Thursday Night Footy game! Odds looks good for a sweep…

Friday, June 15, 2018

2:50 AM (Late Thursday Night) – Sydney Swans v West Coast Eagles at the SCG

This is Match of the Round number one.  The outcome will show who really is a Premiership contender.

8:45 PM – Carlton Blues v Fremantle Dockers at Marvel Stadium

Can the Blues snag a win against a team that usually doesn’t play well in Melbourne?

11:35 PM  – Gold Coast Suns v St. Kilda Saints at Metricon Stadium

I really love the AFL and there is still no way I’m staying up for this game.

Saturday,  June 16, 2018

2:25 AM (Late Friday Night) – Hawthorn Hawks v Adelaide Crows at the MCG

The Crows are REELING and the Hawks are trying to get back on the winning end of things.  This doesn’t look good for Adelaide.

10:20 PM – Geelong Cats v Richmond Tigers at the MCG

This is Match of the Round number 2.  However, it pisses me off that Geelong is forced to play a “home” game at Richmond’s home ground.  Dusty is expected to be out again, so maybe that helps?

BYES:  Brisbane Lions, Collingwood Magpies, Essendon Bombers, GWS Giants, Melbourne Demons, and North Melbourne Kangaroos

That’s all for this week.  Remember that there is a Wednesday game this week, so don’t forget to put the Footy Tips in!!

Hey, if everyone’s getting 2 tips wrong, I can outdo that.

Man, not a lot of movement in the bottom part of the standings. They should just hold the first round of the draft right now. (Does footy have a draft?)
