AFL Round 5 2007 : Results

Another crap round with a poor result with my tipping and an even poorer result for the Saints.

My tipping is in the toilet. I am coming last in my tipping comp, with just 20 correct tips for the season.

Week 5
(Tip ratio) Home Draw Away (Tip ratio)
(82%) Bombers (11.13 79) Magpies (12.23 95) (18%)
(85%) Power (14.12 96) Saints (6.7 43) (15%)
(6%) Tigers (11.10 76) Eagles (14.15 99) (94%)
(35%) Blues (18.16 124) Lions (21.10 136) (65%)
(97%) Swans (17.7 109) Demons (8.12 60) (3%)
(35%) Hawks (13.15 93) Bulldogs (16.14 110) (65%)
(87%) Cats (15.12 102) Kangaroos (18.10 118) (12%)
(54%) Dockers (7.16 58) Crows (8.9 57) (46%)

The Saints have had a terrible start to the season and they are now in the bottom 4 on the ladder, with a terrible percentage.

Blogging takes a back seat to twitter

Since I started using Twitter, I have really slowed down on my blogging,

I find twitter so much simpler to use - i can do it from my phone, from any browser, from a bunch of windows apps, even from a sidebar gadget. It's just so easy.

And it's instant gratification, in just 140 characters.
