    Seems a harsh penalty. He could only possibly gain 1 point for the extra player, and will be penalised a potential 22 points. Can't you assume the extra is a correct guess and penalise that one. Even deduct a further point as punishment. A 2 point penalty is surely fairer than disqualification.

    Given we're 22 rounds out from the question in, um, question, I think the above course of action is fair.

    Do we have a decision on Keays2myBeama yet? Surely a 2 point penalty more than compensates for accidentally having a selection worth, at most, 1 point.

    It's the final round - we don't know much more now than we did a couple of weeks ago. Just let him cut one now...

    Why on earth would you have half priced baked good on sale AFTER you checkout??? Surely you put them on the other side of the checkouts so people add them to their trolleys before paying. Its ridiculous!

    Yes, most people went backwards. No new debutants and no one predicted only one win so there were a lot of negative points awarded for assigning wins against the wrong teams.

    Just consider that you're demonstrating the Brisbane Lions spirit.

    I would agree that yes, I am managing myself quite poorly.

    After everyone left points on the table:
    • No one tipped Beams to kick more goals than Zorko.
    • No one tipped Schache to play 12 games or less more than Clayton.
    • No one tipped Zorko to kick the most behinds after the bye, or kick the most overall behinds, or have the most overall tackles.
    • No one tipped Port Adelaide's pick to be worst than pick 7.
    ...and with only Brownlow votes to come, we have a new leader after quite a jump from 16th.

    I'm content with 5th, consistently just above average in these bigfooty comps :D

    Started the season off like the Swans did, but I'm finishing it off like them too. ;)

    So, you are expecting to get reasonably close to winning? Are you on a 9 year deal?

    BrizzyFan12 scored the most points on the Brownlow counts, though no one nailed Beams' 17 votes nor the team's 47 total. That means he jumps into the top 3, but the winner is our first two time victor, The Flying Belgian...

    ...with a correct guess that we would have a Brownlow vote debutant this year, whereas cotter101 fell to the trio of Lester, Taylor and Hipwood.
