Just sign up and tip. Tell Nickman's much better half I'll be disappointed if she doesn't tip as well.
She'd probably beat me!

I asked if I could do it later, and no one responded, but I just did, so it appears as if the answer was

YES
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Of course, the answer is now NO, because I've already signed up again. To sign up again, I'd need an alt, like lucy. So possibly the answer is MAYBE, if I can be bothered, which I'm not.

I ran into a similar issue when I changed my tip from Eels to Broncs after Foran was ruled out. I likely forgot to hit the save tips button expecting it to auto-update. It's a crappy way to set it up.

You're bigger problem is that you thought the eels would beat the Donkeys

An upset was not out of the question. They were doing well until Norman got injured, and it's round 1.

Only 1 penalty goal was scored in the second half. Parra had a heap of sets on their line but lacked any finish. If Norman and Foran are there at least some of those sets are points. The main reason it looked so easy is because Kelly can't control a game to save his life.

Yeah, but Broncos barely broke a sweat. If you watched the game the Broncos were a far superior team and I thought could've easily won by 20+ if they'd cranked it up a gear

Sometimes the scoreline doesn't reflect the contest, but the Broncos were never in danger. I doubt Foran will steer these blokes into the finals

Broncos are filth, boring controlling defensive footy. They should've put another 3 tries on.
Prime example, up by 17-4 with 8mins on the clock they took 4 rucks 1 out and milford drives it into touch from the 30m line.
Only bennett could coach the flair out of milford.

It really is a bore to watch. It's not that they don't have the talent to put teams away, it's just that they play conservatively af! worked against them in the gf though, so now they'll die wondering.

They didn't kick the field goal until there was like two minutes to go, did they??

I actually thought Milford's kick to touch was the right thing to do at the time. I was impressed by the composure he showed.

Classic Sommers.

Can I just say that Milford's pointless field goals are the thing I hate about him the most?

They are utterly pointless. It **** me to tears

It was not. 12 points up with two minutes to go. Go for another try. Give your fans a nice finish.

He does it all the time!

Rubbish. Knock it over for a 13+ lead, honour all the bets for those of us with that margin and screw the 1-12 Haterz.

The irony is a random field goal in the last five minutes would've won the GF for them.
