Pistol Pete Pips Punters in Tipping Triumph

Well hi there all you Uglybaaaaaaaaaaaaaastaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaards it's Uglybustard here for the last post of 2019 outlaying the prize winners for this sensational season that woz.

Congratulations Pete Lewis!!!  Pete wins his first ever Uglybustards Premiership.  And he got the bloody GLAMARAMA cans as well!!!

It was nip 'n' 'ckn tuck there throughout the last few rounds and the finals series, but Pete come thru in the end defeating the valiant Andy, equal on points but Pete got the chockies with a superior margin.

Third place went to Timmoie, a name I've had trouble spelling all year, a punter who has been around a while without showing much, but really pulled out all stops after entering the prize pool this year missing the coveted Uglybustards guernsey by a single point!  Ahhhhhgggggggggggg.

Well done Podium.


The pressure was definitely building during the finals as I received a call from BecCG asking "WHY THE F#$K ISN'T MY F$%^&N JOKER F*&^%N WELL DISPLAYING ON THE F@#%$N FOOTY TIPS SITE YOU #$%#T!!!!" ...or words to that effect.  No I jest (BecCG pls don't try to sue me my lawyers are useless).

But the presha was indeed on among the top bunch right to the very end.

There were a few fast finishers with Funnybustard deserving a speshul mention, using the fullcard finals bonus to full effect to win the last two Jackpots of the season and climb up to 4th, which unfortunately is like a 4th in the Olympics, except Uglybustards is a much higher standard so it's something to be very proud of.

Meanwhile reigning Champ Griggsybustard never got into gear this season finishing 14th after two Uglybustards Titles in succession.  An emotionally exhausted Griggsy vehemently refused to blame the umpires for his loss of the crown, although he did state if he had himself actually been umpiring a 3-peat would've been a "lay-down-f%$king mazaire Uglybustard you ^%$#$" - and I have that on tape.

On to the winners, prize money, jackpots and merchandise prizes.

Andy takes home $67.50 and Timmoie just the $22.50.  Oh well better luck next time lads.

Season Ladder Prize:

Rhino's stubbyholder
Now this is where the real skill takes place as it is a regular tipping comp without finessing about your full card pick bonus crap and jokers.  It's just hard and tough picking your tips.  This prize goes to the first paid up punter who did not get on the podium for the Fullcard Joker ladder.  And the final placings were...
  1. Timmoie 138
  2. BecCG 137
  3. Pete Lewis 136
  4. Funnybustard 136
  5. Andy 135
  6. Bill Griggs 135
And the winner is... BecCG!!!!  Well done Bec an Uglybustards stubbyholder will more than make up for missing out on the big one.

Special mention to Timmoie who has taken out top place in the season ladder for the 2nd year in succession.

Margin Prize:

The winner of the best cumulative margin this year goes to Timmoie!! Again, Timmoie has topped the table for the Margin 2 years in succession. An Uglybustards stubbyholder is coming your way mate.  The big prize of the Uglybustards Guernsey still eludes you....
