It hasn’t been a spectacular year for me in the footy tipping. Although I was thankfully nowhere near the come bottom of the competition, after leading for a short period during the year I ended up fifth at the end of the season, three points off the lead. That formidable trophy won’t be coming to my place any time soon.
Thankfully a work colleague set up a finals tipping competition. It’s based around shares that started at 10 cents each. You could buy shares before last Friday, and your shares on whichever team(s) you wanted. Any shares on losing teams are lost, and the value of the remaining shares of the prize pool goes up accordingly. So I coughed up $10 and put my 100 shares on three teams that looked pretty safe.
And lost everything in the first smegging week.
