AFL tipping to be Suspended

the AFL tippings will be suspended until further notice
due to the lack of support
and the World Cup in Korea & Japan

... and because I've won the last 3 weeks, the only 3 weeks I've been in it

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."

that's because we've had only like 3 people tipping each week
and that's why we're suspending the tipping
because we don't have enough people, so unless we can get at least 10 more people to join this forum, it won't be worth it

Yes but in all seriousness last round (before the split-round) I did get 8 out of 8 and my cumulative total for the year (before the split-round and not on here obviously but in the comp I'm in) is 63 ...

Not many people I know could better that But yeh we need more people ...

I remember last year when we had the tipping and it fell away towards the end of the year that all of us were saying that this year we would have a great tipping competition and many people participating, but this year fell away as well.
