AFL Round 3 Results - Ballistic Blues Blitz Pies & Rampaging Roos Roll Cats

Well you could see that Blues / Pies train wreck coming a mile away. My only regret is I didnt stick with my 10 goal prediction!  As for the Roos, only Rotten Ronnie Andrews had the intestinal fortitude to pick them against a bone weary Geelong side, even then the Cats came storming home.  The Cats look the goods again, along with the Eagles, Hawks, Blues, and maybe the Saints and Swans. With the Roos' favourable draw which sees them with 2 effective percentage boosting byes against Gold Coast and GWS, they might be knocking on the door of the top 4. The Pies?  They're gawn. New coach, new style, a few key retirements, a few long term knee injuries, in-fighting, out-fighting - Mick's doing a great job of psychologically disassembling them!

Let's go to the round 3 highlights reel...

Billycat had another great round topping the tipping again this week.  He was one of 10 tipsters to pick 8/9, and moves from 7th up to 3rd, behind ladder leader Zenben and 2nd placed Craig Nettlebeck.

Madnurse had a bit of a tumble down the ladder this week, slipping from 2nd to 6th.  But its very close with just 3 points the diff way down to Huru's Guru's in 18th (Go the Huru's!).

Keeping an eye on past champs we see Arnold Layne sneaking his way up from 21st to 15th and reigning champ Griggsy coasting along in 9th after an ordinary start last week.

The Margin Comp has Zenben stretching his lead out by an extra 9 to 29 points, while Longee moves into equal 2nd with Billycat.  David Feck'em dropped from 3rd to 8th but you could throw a blanket over the lot of 'em as he's only 10 points off 3rd, behind Pete Connor, Rotten Ronnie Andrews, Arnold Layne and gonadbreath.

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

No-one got the Jackpot this week, mainly thanks to the Kangas.

In the Trivia Comp I'm streeting the field and have moved up to 61/80 after 8 rounds.  But hang on there are 2 more entries who at this stage are well positioned to take out the 2nd and 3rd prizes! #Car17on has 19/30 and gonadbreath 14/20, both only slightly behind my winning percentage!  Remember, Uglybustards has ordered in a freshly washed batch of Uglybustards T-shirts for this comp straight from the laundromat. It's the T-shirt you will wear with pride and never want to take off.  You can begin the Trivia 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 .
