AFL Round 2 Results - Kennett Curse Continues at Cattery as Cut-throat Cats Cull Hapless Hawks

Hats off to the tipsters who went for the Cats to down the Hawks, making it 8 wins in a row since the 2008 upset GF loss, most of the wins by a few points, and coming from behind at 3/4 time.

Zenben followed up his good work in Round 1 to take outright lead in both the Tipping and Margin comps with a full card tip of 9 and 16 from 18 tips so far. He was one of seven Uglybustards Tipsters to get the card. The Whoppers will run out at Hungry Jacks this week.

Let's roll the tape for round 2...

Madnurse has made a good start to the season, level on points with Zenben, but 54 off the cumulative margin.  Craig Nettlebeck, Sam Griggs and Aceup74 are just one point off the pace.

The Margin Comp sees Zenben jump from 9th to a 20 point lead in front of a huuuuge bunch led by David Feck'em and Rotten Ronnie Andrews, who is revisiting us from the 70s. Its very tight and next week's margin game between Carlton and Collingwood is gonna be a tough one to pick. Will it be the Blues by 10 goals or 15?

Uglybustards Tipping and Margin ladders can be seen in more detail here.

The jackpot was won by Uglybustards debutant BillyCat, who, along with 4th placed Sam Griggs is showing the impressive form that is to be expected as one of the dominant Griggs clan, who may indeed be building a dynasty in Uglybustards Tipping for generations to come, one that may indeed rival the Watson brigade.  BillyCat was 28 off the margin and rocketed from 26th to 6th in Margin ladder calculations.

We're not seeing a lot of action in the Trivia Comp to date.  I'm on 55/70 after 7 rounds.  There will be prizes for the top 3 who can beat my score, we've just ordered in a fresh batch of Uglybustards T-shirts for this comp.  You can begin the comp at any stage of the season.  To start, login to footytips.com.au then go to http://www.footytips.com.au/tipping/afl/trivia .

Thanks to all those who've paid up their $20 entry fee for the Prize Pool so far. The deadline is April 30, only a couple of weeks away.  Email uglybustard@uglybustards.com for details on how to pay.  Remember that to be eligible for any of the prizes on Uglybustards you need to have paid your entry fee.  If you don't pay you can still play for glory and get your name in the Hall of Fame.

And lastly who says the press is dead? If it is the flood definitely aint. Pic from Swans / Freo game on Satdee.  Like a swarm of u7s chasing a soccer ball from one half of the ground to the other.  And they reckon the game's healthy???
Swans and Freo buzz round the ball like bees round the proverbial honeypot

Good Luck with your tips next week.
Go Blue Baggers.
