Club Crisis as Crows Crush Carlton

Another injury to a Blues star as Murphy crumbles under the impact of Crows wrecking ball Patrick Dangerfield. Will the Crows kill Collingwood this week to make it a trifecta of culling Cats, Carlton and Collingwood in three straight weeks? Let's hope so. We can't let the filth escape. 

Meanwhile the Blues face Melbourne this week, and based on current form this should be a close, tight encounter that goes right down to the wire.

We know How Hi is a Chinaman. But How High is Howe. Lets roll the tape for Round 8.

The Tipping Ladder is hotting up at the top with Longee and Griggsy still going at it neck and neck with Craig Nettlebeck nipping at their heels. Elmo climbs into 4th after a number of consistent rounds, followed by yours truly in Uglybustard, goin ok since I dumped Carlton, and Aceup74 sits in 6th. But its extremely close with zenben, gonadbreath, BecCG, Andy, quokka, DrBB and Sam Griggs all level on points and still only 4 off the lead. You could throw a blanket over these first 13 tipsters and turn the lights off. But lets not go there. Celebrity tipster Robert Lee holds up the bottom of the ladder but is facing some competition from The Lace in this department.

In the Margin Comp we have a tie for the leadership between David Feck'Em and Longee, who cannot be separated. The tilt himself, Rod Carter, has been climbing steadily through the ranks and is now only 10 pts behind them. Another 5 pts further back is early leader zenben, while Pete Connor has lost a wheel nut in the back straight and dropped a good lead to be 5th, with gonadbreath 1pt in arrears breathing down his neck with his trademark hot sticky breath. How's it feel Pete?

The Trivia Comp sees Elle limbering up for a night out with Uglybustard. Although I only got a 7/10 from the last round, which opens up the door for Rotten Ronnie who just needs 11/10 to draw level.

No jackpot this week although a number of tipsters went close, but were thwarted by either Port Adelaide or Adelaide.

That's it for this week, good luck with your tips in round 9.
