I’m in WA so If Richmond get up for me I won’t be coming to Melbourne anytime soon to collect my prize and I don’t expect it sent to me. It can be donated to the MFC and hopefully they can use it next season.

We'll restart the knockout comp next week, and look on with interest to see if dee_mac or Hotdees pick the Bracket, but you're in for the points comp, so I'll take your Lions by 3, and you can enter the rest as we go.

Awesome.

I thought I had entered a private, splinter contest with Cannon there for a bit but given my first tip already looks to be going south, I’ll take what I can

Welcome to Week 2 of the Bracket!

Congratulations to Hotdees who did what no one else could, and picked Week 1.

So with that, we might as well open it back up again. Previous predictions are wiped clean (unless you want to carry over Hotdees) get your predictions in now for the Semi's, Prelims and the GF, with margins only required for this weeks Semis.

And speaking of the Points Competition, the ladder is looking like this ...

TheCount - 11
dee_mac - 10
ponsdale - 8
Hotdees - 7
Crimson Azure - 5
HANDSOLO - 4
schmuttt t - 2
TheDarkDwarf - 2
Cannon82 - 1
Proper Gander - 0

If anyone else wants to enter for the remainder, have at it, you wouldn't even be stand alone last in the Points Comp.

Also, a small addition to the rules, I realised that I never gave a score for picking the actual margin, which wasn't an issue last week, but this week, if you pick the margin, you'll be awarded your 1 point for picking the winner, and an extra 11 points! Meaning you could enter now (or be PG) and picking the margin tomorrow night will put you on top of the ladder

So remember, you only need to pick a margin for this week, picking the bracket is a separate game.

I mean, you can put them down if you want, but I'm not actually making note of them.
