If the comp ended right now - successful title defence. You're a strange human.
From first to equal first -- you've only got room to fall. I just feel like it's going to be a let down. Expected more.

Not sure what else I can do but be first...but I will try harder...with my tips that I completed a few weeks ago...

I guess I just expected more from "The Champ."

I'll temper my expectations.

Top score was @Tigeriffic with 7 which has taken him to the outright lead by 1.

No sign of last year's winner @Vines at this stage.

@TigerTimmy looks to be back into groove but he will be paying for the first round 1 out of 9 for some time.

Debacle early for me.
2 behind feels like the length of the straight with the Broady and Gracie pressure.

The ladder taking shape now with past winners @Tigeriffic and @Broadsword out into the lead.

@Ned has made his best start to the season in as long as I can remember. Could he finally press on to the top?

Still there are a host of tipsters in striking range with 19 rounds to go.

Must put Rd1 tips in the back the front. ;)
Hard to get past 6 with Hawks losing (loving it!), Tiges winning (loving it!), North losing (please do so in Rd11 vs Tiges), Fremantle winning (Tiges play twice to interupt winning ways).

@thebigricho scored a perfect round.

Several of the 8s could have been 9s if not for selecting @#$%wood. Karma :D

Last week's leaders @Broadsword and @Tigeriffic couldn't maintain the pace and slipped up badly in a high scoring weekend.

@justmike scored his best result and this has left @TigerTimmy 4 adrift of the main pack.

@Ned and TBR are now our leaders. Can they continue to stay out in front or will they falter also???

Stay tuned

It is getting red hot at the front of the pack. One cannot rest for a minute.

Everyone got the Swans wrong and only one picked Saints.

@Vosstiger topped scored with an 8 (broke his run of 6s) to jump to a share of the lead with Gracie and @thebigricho. Last week's co-leader @Ned has dropped back to one behind with @Broadsword and @Tigeriffic.

@believe! was only one behind the lead last week but did "a Richmond" and is now 3 off the pace.

At the other end @TigerTimmy has responded and caught the tailend of the pack and is eyeing off passing @justmike

Another shuffling of the deckchairs.

@Jools top scored with 7 and drags herself back into contention. @Tigeriffic scored well and joins @Vosstiger in the lead.

@believe! is crashing faster than Eddie McGuire's faith in Buckley. Was only one off the lead after round 5 now 5 back!!

might i just point out the last 2 weeks have been absolute ****ing anomalies with upset after upset and my blind tipping logic is just fine- it's the bloody AFL in its entirety that's wrong.

GAME OVER then - and I declare the winner to be.............
What ever you do don't forget to put your tips in. I missed week 4 or 5 and went from in the lead by 2 to 5 behind. There is no away teams default or anything.

I like a challenge

Another week another shuffling of the deckchairs. Gracie top scores with 7 thanks largely to his prediction of Geelong's demise finally starting to pay off.

@Tigeriffic and @Vosstiger are trailing by 1. However scores are still close and another shuffling can be expected next week.

@Ned's run seems to have Petered out (see what I did there??) :D

and @believe! falls again to second last

Big spread of scores has seen some dramatic falls and a couple of big movers.

Top score was 6 from two tipsters @Broadsword moved to second place and has thrown out the challenge. @TigerTimmy also top scored and joined back on to an equal share of last with the freefalling @believe! @justmike gets himself away from the bottom of the ladder....well for this week anyway.

The ladder is starting to stretch out with the top 5 breaking from the pack.
