Alright kids, lets try and draw a bit of extra excitement out of the finals, and pick The Bracket.

We'll play two games ...

1. Pick the whole Bracket from start to finish in a knock out format.
2. Pick each week with Winner and Margin
in a points competition, with scoring as follow
1pt for picking the winner
+ 9pts for within 1 of the margin
8pts for within 2
7pts for within 3
6pts for within 4
5pts for within 5
4pts for within 6
3pts for within 7-12
2pts for within 13-18
1pt for within 19-24

Submit your full Bracket before 8.10pm AST Tomorrow (Thurs 05/09), with your margins for week 1 included.

The winner gets something we as Melbourne fans have felt so sparingly in regards to finals football ... Pride.

No need for the margins past Week1, but all good.

Actually, strike that, Bris would play GWS in week2, so they can't both win.
Your Week2 would be Pies v Eagles (winner playing Rich in W3) and Bris v GWS (winner playing Geelong in W3)

If anyone else missed the boat and wants to follow Cannon in copping a zero for the last nights game in the Points game and submit the remaining predictions for week 1, feel free.
