Teams: Australia & Newcastle United
It's a tops idea... in fact I'd go as far to say it's bonza...
I think it adds a little more excitement and room to move rather than the monotony of falling 20 behind the leader at the halfway mark and losing interest as with what normally occurs in standard tipping contests.
Also... if someone forgets to put their tips in they could get a cash penalty that could be won back anyway, instead of the contrived 'you get the away sides for that week' option that a lot of comps employ or simply getting a zero for that week.
EDIT: I also think it's a refreshing change and exciting format, as I know last season's standard tipping format completely fell apart.
"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.
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."
