Crystal Ball Results 2018 – H&A Season

Written by Schwarzwalder on August 28 2018

(Written & Created By Roo Bloke)

 

Thought about getting straight into the report but realised many may have forgotten this comp existed (kinda like the Suns really). Way back in the pre-season a number of us gazed into the gloom of the upcoming footy season and made some bold and in hindsight stupid predictions of what was going to unfold across the dark stretches of winter. To steal and horribly paraphrase Choco Williams, “SuperCoach Talk, you were wrong”. Seriously wrong actually. A reminder of the comp rules. Get the tip right – 5 points, miss by one – 4 points, etc…. There’s still four categories to go with Rising Star, Brownlow, Runner Up and Premier all still to be determined. I’ll get these updates done and out to you all as each gets awarded over the next month.

A large chunk of us jumped on the GWS bandwagon but their injury toll early doors really hurt them costing many of us points in this category.

How on earth did only one of us predict the reigning premier to be the minor premier in the following year??? We also clearly didn’t rate West Coast, Collingwood and Hawthorn’s chances.

In retrospect we should’ve seen Carlton coming, shouldn’t we?? Guess hindsight is 20/20 but surely they were always going to be there or thereabouts.

Crept up on me that Neale was the 5th highest scoring mid for the season. The mids is where we get the largest hit of SC points each round and we clearly know our mids well.

Witts? Really? Big Hugo really thought Witts was going to outscore Gawn? Sinclair did well to nab 5th place and great as a North supporter and a Goldy SC owner to see him get back towards his AA form from a few years back.

I hate BT but “wowee” perfectly fits here. When I compiled the results I was super surprised to see Breust as the 5th highest scoring forward for the season. Can’t say I’ve ever seen him bob up in an opponent’s SC team. Some massive misses with expected breakout candidates in Billings, Curnow, Lobb, Petracca failing to fire.

Kelly was a standout here finishing further ahead of the pack than Winx. Shows how hard it is to nail the rookies without shuffling around a few with early trades.

If you’ve ever needed confirmation of the extreme risk of mid-pricer madness and the supreme value of going guns and rookies then here is the statistical evidence. So many failed mid-pricers.

This was a real lottery this one with Danger getting many of us a crucial point on Saturday against the Gold Coast. Many of these stars of the game seem viable options but Billings?? How many beers in were you Cambeat10 when you made your selections?

      1. Worked it out Kid81. I’d mistakenly put you down in the Coleman section for both Buddy and JJK. Buddy scored two points but you’d actually tipped JJK. You’re on 11 points unfortunately Kid81 and a loooooong way back from the equal leaders.

  1. Not sure how I managed to pull =5th With terrible picks such as Ryder, Billings and Dusty for highest score but I’ll take it.

    1. Over half the tipsters went North for the spoon and got 0 points. Those that went Gold Coast like you got 4 points and got a big leg up.
