Congratulations John for all your hard work & congratulations to our winners also.

And thank you too to our generous prize givers.

I think the tipsters were excellent this year too with two-thirds of them within 8 points of the winner. :D

It was a difficult year for tipping with so many upsets, which is shown by the fact that the 2 perfect rounds this week, doubled the total for the year up to just 4 perfect scores.

Not one perfect score was tipped during the bye rounds which is even more amazing!

Agree, and a very tough year for John (and everyone else!) to keep up with the venue changes for much of the season.

Thanks for the hard work, and hope we can all beg you to continue it in 2022! :lol: :lol:

Congrats to the winners, a difficult year to be accurate on, and Blue-Lazer can contact me for his first prize!

A Big Thank you to John for doing such an amazing job hosting this competition. We all appreciate the effort you have put in week after week to keep this comp running smoothly.

Also many thanks to Glen, Fletches1 and Kevin Morgan for their generous prize donations.

I have been playing in this tipping comp for many years now and it is a thrill to finally win one. Probably more luck than skill as I can not remember a year with so many upsets.

Congratulations to the other winners, it was very close at the end with several matches decided by less than a goal.

Looking forward to trying again next year as I am sure everyone else involved will be also.

Thanks again,

Peter

Reason: Added pars and spacing and “air” – always a superb idea on Bulletin Boards! Use the "PREVIEW" button folks. It is there for a GOOD reason.

Congratulations on your win.

Please contact me and provide your email and I will send your e-voucher for $100.

Please note that shipping from Australia to Brazil is a bit hit and miss. Currently listed at 25 days +. You should allow double this !!

Further Brazil requires Electronic Advance Data (EAD) to be provided on all shipments of goods.

This means that the postage is requiring the registered cost.

Please be sure to add the registered post option on checkout to avoid problems. (it is an add on option from the main menu at bottom left)

If you order stamps only, I can probably get away with using airmail without the Customs Declaration (EAD), you can try with normal Airmail.

If you order bulky items like covers, then you WILL need to pay the registered post costs.

Please take this into consideration in your purchase.

Regards Steve

Congrats to blue-laser and lima34 and a huge thanks to all who donated the prizes.

Also to John in keeping this thing running so smoothly, especially with all the covid problems over the last couple of years, a sterling effort indeed. The tipping only gets harder with the lockdowns as there is normally no home ground advantage. Anyone who scored a nine this year very well done.

Looking forward to next year already, just need the Crows to do better :lol:

A huge THANK YOU John for running this comp. in what were very challenging times. :)

Well done to the winners, and I'm glad I can still enjoy the NRL (which, as a Victorian, I should be charged with sacrilege.... :lol: ) I guess I deserved to finish in the position that I did!! :D

Congrats to the Winners. :D

A Big Thanks John for somehow managing to keep the Competition going despite the best efforts of Covid, Lockdowns etc. It certainly took a lot of work which I'm sure was very appreciated by all.

Thanks also to the Prize Sponsors for their generosity.

Looking forward to taking part again next year, although I'll need to improve a little on the tipping front. :roll:

Congratulations to our winners!

I would personally like to thank everyone for competing in the competition this year.

It has been another trying season with all the changes required to keep the AFL season running due to Covid-19 and the tragic loss of this competition's founder...Norm Poyser (Fromdownunder).

Thank you to everyone for their words of encouragement and support during the season.

I would like to especially thank Brad (BigSaint) for his help with posting fixture updates etc when I haven't been able to get them up.
A huge thank you from me to John (and Brad) for running a really enjoyable competition. It takes masses of hard work to make these things happen and it really is appreciated.

I can only agree with your comments about the late, great Norm Poyser.

Congratulations to all the prize winners.

See everyone for the new season in the Spring (northern) / Autumn (southern).

This comp has been great fun all year, and it wouldn't have been possible without John's time and dedication thank you.
Thanks also to the prize sponsors.
Big Saints contribution has also been great thank you.
Finally congratulations to our winners, a job well done.
It also needs participants even those in the middle of the pack or lower even those who have no knowledge of AFL.(Some of us think that could even be an advantage)
Thanks everyone looking forward to next year.

Grant C, may I echo your comments !
I have been in last place, I have been in the middle, and
I also took first place a few years back. I know very little

2nd Elimination Final :

GWS Giants 11.8.74 defeated Sydney 10.13.73

GWS led by 29 points early in the 3rd quarter but had to withstand a Sydney comeback that fell just short.

Sydney will rue several shots at goal in the last few minutes that all resulted in behinds, including 2 that hit the post.

GWS play Geelong in a semi-final next week while Sydney are eliminated.

Toby Greene’s petulant bump on the umpire today has to be at least a weeks ban.

The bloke is a fantastic footballer but a spoilt petulant brat who gets away with most of his antics. About time he was taught a proper lesson :evil:

First Elimination Final :

Western Bulldogs 13.7.85 defeated Essendon 4.12.36

Bulldogs will play Brisbane Lions in a semi-final next week while Essendon's season is over.

Bulldogs led by just 3 points at half time but kicked 8 goals to none in the second half.

It was the first time a team had gone goalless in a second half of a final since 1956.

First Semi Final :

Western Bulldogs 11.13.79 defeated Brisbane Lions 11.12.78

Fantastic match, scores were level with less than a minute to play before the Bulldogs managed to force a behind to take the lead and managed to hold on as the Lions attacked in the dying seconds.

Bulldogs move on to play Port Adelaide next week in a Preliminary Final while the season ends for Brisbane.

OLLIE'S BROWNLOW: Record-equalling Wines pips Bont in thriller

Port Adelaide's Ollie Wines has won the 2021 Brownlow Medal in one of the highest-scoring counts in history

BRILLIANT midfielder Ollie Wines has become the first Brownlow medallist in Port Adelaide’s history, winning a record-breaking count at Perth's Optus Stadium on Sunday night.

The star onballer powered home to poll a record-equalling 36 votes to be crowned the League’s best and fairest player in 2021, edging Western Bulldogs captain Marcus Bontempelli (33).

The 26-year-old from Echuca equalled Dustin Martin's 2017 record for the most votes polled under the 3-2-1 system, after a career-best season leading the Power midfield.

Wines polled in a record 16 games and stormed home with votes in 11 of the last 12 rounds, taking the lead from Bontempelli after round 22.

He sealed the game's highest individual honour when he polled two votes to Bontempelli's nil in the Power's round 23 win over the Bulldogs.

It was an historic count in several ways, with a record four players polling 30 or more votes after Melbourne midfielder Clayton Oliver finished third with 31 and Carlton's Sam Walsh tallied 30 in fourth.

"I'm a little bit rattled, to be honest, still," Wines said on stage at Perth's Optus Stadium, the Toyota AFL Grand Final venue.

"There are so many great players that I still look up to at my age ... and a lot of them are obviously playing on Saturday in the biggest game of the year.

"I'm extremely envious of them and I'd love to be in their position.

"It wasn't to be this year and I know we'll rebound and go again next year."

Speaking at the post-count media conference, a "numb" Wines paid tribute to his teammates and club for making the award possible and said he hoped he could inspire young country kids to chase their dreams as he had.

"When I was a kid, I watched (Carlton player and Echuca product) Andrew Walker and these guys and aspired to be like them," Wines said.

"I know Mum and Dad, when they're in town, go into the grocery shop and they've always got parents coming up to them saying how much their kids love watching me and passing on footy cards for me to sign.

"If I can inspire those young kids from my town, who perhaps don't get as much opportunity as the kids in the city, I think I'm doing my job well.

Recruited with pick No.7 in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft, Wines said the key to taking his game to a new level in 2021 had been focusing on his strengths, rather than trying to be something he is not.

The inside bull averaged a career-high 32.1 disposals during the home and away season, as well as six clearances, 5.2 inside 50s and 443m gained per match.

"I probably accepted my role a little bit and understood I wasn't going to be the silky smooth mid who carved up outside the contest," Wines said.

"All Ken (Hinkley) needed from me was to put my head over the ball inside and dish it out to the guys on the outside, who are the creative, more talented players.

"I don't think I've got a lot of talent, but as my Mum said, I'm a bit of a stayer and will stick it tough to the end and grind it out.

"Once I simplified my game a little bit more, everything clicked from there."

Wines spoke about his disappointment at being drafted to the Power from Victoria but said it had turned out to be the best thing he could have asked for as a person.

His connection with teammates kept him at the club when he flirted with a move at the end of 2019, committing to a four-year deal at the end of 2020 and then experiencing a stunning career revival this season.

"The club never wanted to leave me, but it was probably myself thinking perhaps I've got to go somewhere else to get more out of my career," Wines said.

"To the club's credit, they didn't let me and wanted to keep me, and I'm thankful to this day, despite not winning a premiership or playing in a Grand Final at this stage.

"I'm incredibly proud to still be at the club and glad I didn't go anywhere."

Bontempelli looked the likely Brownlow winner from the midway point of the count on Sunday night, taking the lead from Oliver after 12 rounds and holding it outright until Wines drew level on 33 votes after round 21.

The Bulldogs superstar, who will lead his team in Saturday's Grand Final, didn't poll in the final month of the season as the thrilling count came to its conclusion.

Young midfielders Oliver, Walsh and Essendon's Darcy Parish (26) announced themselves as future contenders, while veteran pair Travis Boak (25) and David Mundy (20) polled well.

2021 Brownlow Medal top 10:

1. Ollie Wines (PA) - 36 votes
2. Marcus Bontempelli (WB) - 33
3. Clayton Oliver (Melb) - 31
4. Sam Walsh (Carl) - 30

I think it might be the Demons turn to win after 57 years in the widerness.

Yoo Hoo!

Was VERY nervous at one point and near cashed out, when way under water. :)

Well played. What a see-saw game.

Top marks to the AFL for somehow getting all games staged, and top marks to John for getting it all wrangled yet again this season for us all! Great job, and many thanks for me and us all I am sure. 8-)

Now off to the Russia Formula One Qualifying sessions. :mrgreen:
