AFL Round 17 2007 : Results.

 Another good round in relation to my tips and the Saints

Week 17
(Tip ratio) Home Draw Away (Tip ratio)
(21%) Bulldogs (9.17 71) Eagles (24.14 158) (79%)
(10%) Blues (15.11 101) Saints (16.15 111) (90%)
(27%) Dockers (10.12 72) Cats (20.20 140) (73%)
(83%) Magpies (7.14 56) Lions (22.17 149) (17%)
(97%) Swans (21.12 138) Tigers (10.12 72) (3%)
(63%) Hawks (10.11 71) Kangaroos (16.12 108) (37%)
(58%) Bombers (18.9 117) Crows (16.9 105) (42%)
(96%) Powner (25.13 163) Demons (11.8 74) (4%)

The Saints played well for half the game. I followed the game online while I was in Seattle. It was quite cool listening to the game. I was hopeful for a *BIG* win, but I will take any win at the moment.

The record against the Blues recently has been good, but there's a long way to go to even the score

AFL Round 16 2007 : Results

 What a round! The Saints won and I got 7 tips right. My best round of the season!!! However, it doesn't help me in the tipping comp as I am still in the bottom of the pack.

Week 16
(Tip ratio) Home Draw Away (Tip ratio)
(87%) Cats (20.18 138) Bulldogs (9.9 63) (13%)
(85%) Magpies (18.14 122) Bombers (14.9 93) (15%)
(89%) Crows (15.11 101) Dockers (20.6 126) (11%)
(34%) Saints (14.11 95) Hawks (11.12 78) (66%)
(68%) Eagles (16.16 112) Swans (15.10 100) (31%)
(94%) Lions (25.13 163) Blues (6.10 46) (6%)
(13%) Tigers (15.10 100) Power (24.11 155) (86%)
(92%) Kangaroos (19.12 126) Demons (9.8 62) (8%)

The Saints did have a good win against the Hawks. I haven't seen the game yet, as I am traveling and in different time zones. Hopefully the kids did the right thing and recorded it on the IQ.

Lots of great stories following the win, especially this piece Shades of the Swans as Saints pick up the pace.

I can feel the momentum building

AFL Round 15 2007 : Results.

The Saints kicked off the round again with another Friday night game.

The good news was they won a tough game.

My tipping was pretty average again, I went for all the home teams and scored 5 out of 8 as a result.

Week 15

(28%) Saints (11.16 82) Crows (12.8 80) (72%)
(84%) Cats (11.14 80) Magpies (9.10 64) (16%)
(37%) Power (22.21 153) Eagles (9.8 62) (63%)
