I am starting up a tipping comp at my work and just trying to find the best way to share the prize fund?

I was hoping to have 1st, 2nd, 3rd and possibly winner each round or 8 in a week?

Depends how many people are going to be in it. What's your predicted amount?

I would say 50% of the total prize pool for 1st, 35% for 2nd and 15% for 3rd

Most smaller workplace comps just pool in $10 each for a first prize, and then if you get around 20-30 people in you can do a 70-30 split on a 1st and 2nd.

This year I'm planning to start chipping away at bucket list footy matches (pretty much just all the marquee matches). I can't decide between ANZAC Eve or ANZAC Day however. Both have a huge atmosphere, both are special matches, and both will be cracking games (Top 4 vs Top 4 in both). Anyone been to either or have one they reckon would be better?

Also, does anyone know when/why West Coast changed their theme song from "for year's they took the best of us..." to "hey eagles hey eagles...". Just listening to some of the older ones and never really put much thought into when it changed

2000 I believe, as part of the big rebrand from the wings to the fat budgie. The whole rebrand was to attract younger fans to the club.

Doubt you'd be able to find a seat at ANZAC day unless you're willing to fork more out than a typical $25 for concession :(

Both are excellent games
I would say ANZAC Day as it is pretty special

Saw this on the Suns website. From reading the article it talks about the Suns womens team playing in a 'Winter Series' against the Lions team in Mackay. From that I can only assume that's the womens jumper or some kind of promotional one.

TL;DR: Gold coast jumper with gold cuffs.

Looks like my prediction was correct. Also it's pretty cool to see Blackburn FC included in this picture, the biggest club in the EFL. Go to almost every one of their games and looking to buy a membership for next year, carn the Burners!

I think it was a Blackburn vs Nth Ringwood game, I saw him there watching along the boundary and had a bit of a chat with Neale, bloody good bloke.

Also on a somewhat related note, currently looking at redesigning Blackburn's horrible logo, watch this space...

So they have a couple of wins this year and now they think they're ready to challenge for a Super Bowl? Pssh.
7-8-1 record for them is amazing from where they are at. With Steelers on a sharp decline and the Bengals being the Bengals, I'd say the AFC North battle is between the Browns and Ravens.

anyone else experienced a workplace takeover bid? i work for a publicly listed company and we were just told today we had an unsolicited offer to buy our company from someone else. i'm only 24 and my only other job besides this one was at coles (lol), so i've never been through anything like this before.

Why would you want to do that? if someone forgets they'll drop way off the pack and likely just give up.
