AFL Results R11 - Bombers Blitz Blues from Behind

The rubber-band effect was in full swing over the long weekend where two teams in the Blues and the Saints were reeled in by the Bombers and the Ducks respectively. Some very controversial umpiring decisions especially Garlett's non-goal, but the Blues only had themselves to blame for missing too many easy shots when 5 goals up. As for the Saints, when the umps got going in the last quarter the Ducks were never going to lose. 22 - 14 free kick count for the Ducks. They've lost only 2 counts to round 11 this year and top the "ladder" for free kicks. At this time last year they'd lost just one free kick count. Not much has changed in Ducks games, whereas other matches were deemed to be well umpired in general by both winning and losing coaches.

The Gold Coast Suns are on fire and the Giants put on a bold display against the Cats, and they too will be a force - it is Demetriou's main objective to get these two teams in the finals asap, and win a Premiership. That leaves a team like Melbourne with just about no hope whatsoever.

The other talking point for the round is the ramp up of the Swans. Get your hard-earned on them now for the Flag. Two years ago when the Juddy Blues beat them in the wet at the SCG I could've sworn they were on the downhill slide to mediocre mid-tableness. Now, in two weeks time, I'm sure they'll absolutely slaughter the Blues, who are looking very mid-table indeed. Who would've picked it?

Let's roll the tape for round 11. I can't watch this week.  Too many Bomber highlights. Hit it, Aris, then on to the Uglybustards tipping results.




Uglybustards Tipping Comp...


Still plenty of punters in with a chance in this year's comp with only 5 points separating 16 tipsters.  Andy, Sam Griggs and BillyCat remain top 3 in that order on the Tipping Ladder but were reeled in by Arnold Layne and that stalwart in defence Craig Nettlebeck. Following them is a veritable raft of tipsters separated by a mere nothingness.

In the Margin comp we have a huge break made by The Lace who hit the lead for the first time last week, and has extended it to 6 goals over  #Car17on and DrBB in 2nd and 3rd respectively. Quokka and Simon Williams fill 4th and 5th but have their work cut out for them being 7 or 8 majors behind the lead. A special mention must go to gonadbreath who set new records dropping from 5th to 30th in two weeks, which is an eternity in modern footy margin tipping.

More details on the Tipping Ladder page if you scroll down to the Margin ladder.

We have a new leader in the Trivia comp with Rotten Ronnie taking the lead from yours truly by a solitary point in a ring a ding ding cliffhanger that has the crowd on the edge of their seats. To join the Trivia comp, login to footytips.com.au then go to http://www.footytips.com.au/tipping/afl/trivia.

The Lace is having a purple patch picking the perfect round of a full card and spot on margin to take out this week's weekly prize which was $10. Lazybustard and BecCG also picked the round but were further off with the margin. For the record I was the worst tipster this week, mainly due to my tipping of Greater Western Sydney to get up over Geelong. I'm still trying to work out how my account was hacked.

Prize Pool

The Prize Pool is finalised at 26 tipsters and $520 up for grabs for the season. See the Prize page for details.

To be eligible for any of the prizes on Uglybustards you need to have paid your entry fee. If you are not in the Prize Pool you can still play for glory and get your name in the Hall of Fame.

Good luck in Round 11,
Uglybustard.
