Griggsy Grabs Grand Final Glory 2017

In a brutal low scoring season of tipping the Uglybustards Board is proud to announce that the 2017 Uglybustards Premiership Title has been taken out by Griggsy who claims his 2nd Cup since entering the expanded Uglybustards Tipping competition in 2011.  With two Premierships under his belt in just 7 years the controversial move by Uglybustards to allow ex-umpires from Tasmania into the competition has certainly paid off.  Maybe the AFL will sit up and take notice.

Uglybustard Goes AWOL for 2017 GF

With just two weeks left in the 2017 season, I'm off to the land of the Goat and miss the prelims and the Grannie!!!! I wish it was the land of the Lethal Leigh Mathews GOAT, but instead its the land of the four-legged variety in farway Greece, where once again the Uglybustards Board of Directors have sent me in search of new recruits.  Baaahhh.

The Umpire Strikes Back R21 2017

I am compelled to backup from last week's post. One week after a specktackulaaaaahhh effort by Sam Griggs, his old man Griggsy who is a has-been umpire in the Tas footy league, who was obviously deeply offended by last week's Uglybustards column, has gone and played the joker with the five point bonus to max out with a Terwenteeeeeeeeeeeee-threeeee-White-Pointer and hit the lead in the Uglybustards 2017 Title Premiership Cup leading the race for the Uglybustards 2017 Guernsey two weeks out from finals!!!!

2017 Prize Pool Finalised

Yes all youse Uglybaaaaaaarstaaaaaaards we are half way through the 2017 season and its the first post from the Uglybustards Administration all year!!!  There's been a ruthless cost cutting exercise by the Board who are trying to save on digital ink.  Lost my personal assistants, chauffeur and masseuse. But I will struggle on - and what a season of tipping to struggle on with! The most difficult in memory which sees Fluffy Panda hit the lead by a point over Funnybustard at the half way mark. We have a healthy prize pool of 22 entries and a good prize pool of $440. I was sorely tempted to pull up stumps and do a runner to the Bahamas!!! But I knew you'd track down Ugly Bustard's mug shot one day...

Uglybustards Footy Tipping on again in 2017

Here we are again at the start of our 18th Uglybustards AFL Footy Tipping Comp in 2017.

Following tradition we pay our respects to the 2016 Champ Mik Barley aka The Remonstrator and the coveted Uglybustards virtual Premiership Cup. Mik was kind enough to share a couple of pics of his winning guernsey too.
