The members ask - the members get. There was a member demand for a STAMP WIKI on this board. Well here we go. All of you so minded can add to your heart's content. The Moderators here can consolidate info into a new post and keep things tidy. They can add 'Stickies' or 'announcements' to be at the top of the Forum.

2024 AFL Football Tipping Competition - WIN 3 very valuable prizes!

Post by gmoney »

2024 AFL Footy Tipping Contest – Win $100's in prizes - FREE!
AFL logo.jpg
The 17th annual Stampboards Australian Football League (AFL) Footy Tipping Contest is now open for business for the 2024 season, and all members GLOBALLY are welcome to join in the fun.

For the first 10 years, the late Norm (fromdownunder) ran this competition and put in 1000's of hours of his time in the process. Norm decided to "hang up his boots" in 2017 and I volunteered to take over the running of the competition .... not sure I can ever fill Norm's boots though!

You don't need to have any knowledge of Australian Rules Football to be able to enter this competition. The winners in the first 2 years had never seen a game of Australian Rules Football between them in their life!

Indeed there have been three winners from outside of Australia, meaning anyone, anywhere in the world can win!

Over the first 16 editions of this competition, there have been 13 different winners with just one multiple (4-time) winner (who shall remain nameless ;-))!

The AFL season runs for over 6 months with 25 rounds of tipping involved. It would be appreciated that members only enter the competition if they intend to continue competing for the entire season.

Between rounds banter and discussion is actively encouraged, so this thread is used for all things Australian Rules Football related as well as for tipping.

This year we have 3 prizes which will be awarded to the top 3 tipsters at the end of the season. These are well worth the time that it takes to tip each week. Thank you to the prize sponsors for their generous support for this competition.

The prizes are as follows :

First Prize : A $A150.00 Gift Voucher from Glen Stephens, which can be used to purchase anything from www.tinyurl.com/RarityGlen ,or the material that Glen has listed on the sales forum here on Stampboards - www.tinyurl.com/StampDeals
Gift Cert Glen 2013.jpg

Second Prize : Kevin Morgan has again kindly donated an annual "Stamp News" subscription within Australia valued at $129.00 (An overseas winner only needs to pay the extra post cost) OR if you prefer, a THREE Year Digital subscription globally - www.stampnews.net.au/
Stamp News cover.JPG

Third Prize : A superb top of the range LEATHER cover German made ‘Lighthouse’ stockbook with matching slipcase, 32 black pages, retail $125, and mailed to your direct from Renniks Lighthouse Australia to the lucky winner.
stockbook.jpg
Members are most welcome to offer up small spot prizes for any particular round throughout the season, should they wish to add some extra fun and competition.

If you wish to offer something for a round, or for a special reason, please post in the thread, including the terms and conditions of the particular competition, and a scan of your proposed prize. Then at the completion of the round, please post the winner ASAP. It is preferred that the person offering the competition looks after it themselves, but if any help is needed then I am willing to assist.

It would be good to see a few of these competitions offering small prizes throughout the season, particularly in the second half of the season. This will keep interest going for those who may not be in contention for the main prizes.

The 2024 AFL season starts on Thursday March 7th at 7.30pm AEDT. So don't wait, there is no skill required to play and it is completely free, with the chance of winning great prizes!

The Rules :

A list of the next round of AFL matches will be listed after the conclusion of the each round, the Opening Round will be posted directly after this post.

The full 2024 AFL Premiership Season fixture can be found here : http://afl.com.au/fixture. Please be aware, dates and times for matches have only been set until the end of Round 15 at this stage.

All you need to do is tip which team you think will win each of the matches to be played each round.

One point will be awarded per correct tip or for a drawn match .... draws can not be tipped. A drawn match will be counted as a win for both teams.

The total number of points will be aggregated over the entire season and the prizes will be awarded to the 3 tipsters with the most points accumulated over the 207 games of the season.

I will post results of all matches, the progressive AFL ladder, a progressive list of where you stand on the Stampboards Tipping Contest ladder and the fixture for the following round after the conclusion of each round.

All tips for the round must be posted in the one post on this thread. Tipping posts are not to be edited. Once you enter your tips, they can not be changed, so make sure you check your tips carefully before posting. Any editing of a tipping post will result in you being excluded from that round and given zero points.

If you forget to tip a match, you may make another post to include that match tip, so long as it is before the match starts.

Any tips entered after the start of a match (or matches) will score zero points for those matches. There will be no exceptions! So don't leave tipping until the last minute! If you miss the first match(es) of a round, you may post tips after the start of the round but any matches that have started are not counted.

Stampboards time-coding will be used to judge exactly when an entry is made, so even if you are 1 second late, your tip won't count....no exceptions!

If a member does not post their tips in a particular round, they will be awarded the same total as the lowest score of the round for anyone who tipped all matches.

Failure to post in 3 consecutive rounds, without providing a reason for not posting, will see you removed from the competition.

If a member knows they are going to be away, and unable to enter tips at some point during the season, it is fine to post tips in advance....please ensure that they clearly show which round(s) they are for.

Members can join the competition at any point during the season. Any member joining after Round 1 will be given an aggregate total of the lowest score for each of the rounds that have already occurred before they joined the competition.

If there is a tie for any of the prize positions at the end of the season, the winner will be chosen by a count back system as follows :

First tiebreaker – Good old fashioned count back, starting with most rounds with 9 correct tips, then most with 8 correct, then 7 correct etc.

Second tiebreaker (if needed) – Most correct tips in Round 24, then most in Round 23, then Round 22, etc.

Final tiebreaker (if needed) – If by some miracle they have tipped identical totals every one of the 25 rounds (don't ask me to calculate the odds on that!), the winner will be the person who placed their tips earliest for the final round.

Running this competition is time consuming and I have a very busy life lately as well as dealing with some on-going health concerns. I will do my best to try and get updates posted as quickly as possible but please be patient if there is a delay.

If you have any reason to contact me regarding the competition, you may post here in this thread but I highly recommend sending a board email directly to me. I will attempt to reply quickly, but there will be times when my life may cause there to be some delay, so please be patient.

Also, please understand that I am human and as such, am prone to make mistakes. If you believe I have made an error, please contact me by board email or post on the thread, indicating what you feel is incorrect, and I will look into it ASAP, and make corrections where needed.

Best of luck to everyone who enters and lets have some fun while following the 2024 AFL season!

I apologise for the delay in posting the competition this year but I have spent the past week helping operate a Relief Centre for the bushfire that has been burning near by and I just haven't had the time or energy to get this done.

The fire is now contained and we closed the relief centre tonight, so hopefully I can have a few quiet days to catch up on things!

For those of you who have previously played our tipping competitions, you will notice that there are a couple of changes this year.

There will not be bonus points awarded this year for tipping all winners in a round.

Also, if you miss tipping a round, you will get the lowest score of the round from those who tipped all matches.

Hope you enjoy the next 6 months and that we can have some fun along the way as well as a keenly contested tipping competition!

I note some tipsters are listing their tips as Round 1. Round 1 is actually next week. Confused?

I understand this week's games are being called the "Opening Round" & it is a thank you to NSW & Queensland when Victoria was in lockdown for Covid. This allowed the AFL competition to continue & not be shut down.

With the success of "Gather Round" in Adelaide last year, the AFL deiced to continue with Gather Round in Adelaide, rather than move Gather Round to NSW or Qld this year. :D

The 2024 AFL season shapes as the longest planned season on record for the AFL since the league commenced play in 1897.

With 23 rounds of matches for each team, four weeks of finals and three byes dotted unevenly across the year, this season will stretch across almost seven months of the year.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2024-03-07/2024-afl-season-preview-ladder-prediction/103553170

Mike Brady sings about " One day in September" & that's what it is all about. The first 422 games count for very little, winning the 423rd game counts for a lot more.

See you in September. :D

What a match -- they were 8 goals down at one stage on Brisbane home turf too! :D

The last 3 mins or so BNE had ball in their goal area. Even a punched or handballed or dribbled thru point got them a draw. They were too fixated on the match winning goal.

The last 3 mins or so BNE had ball in their goal area. Even a punched or handballed or dribbled thru point got them a draw. They were too fixated on the match winning goal.

I would have thought it was have been fairer if the teams which played in Opening Round played other teams which also played in Opening Round in Round 1.

The AFL have it half right with :

Carlton v Richmond next Thursday night &
Collingwood V Sydney next Friday night.

But I think it would have been better if the AFL had:

GWS V Gold Coast &
Melbourne V Brisbane

Rather than playing teams which hadn't played in Opening Round, which I think puts the teams who didn't play in Opening Round at a disadvantage.
