Quote from: Madiel on April 11, 2021, 02:37:41 AMFairweather fan. That's not how they do it in Victoria...I tipped Geelong to win, but so did almost everyone else in the office tipping competition and I've still won the week. One of my colleagues is a Melbourne supporter so he'll very happy with their current progress.EDIT: I just looked at the next round... you'll want to keep with Geelong, definitely.
Quote from: Papy Oli on April 15, 2021, 03:23:30 AMQuestion of the day: What is the tactical advantage of kicking the ball from the pocket most of time towards the boundary lines on the sides, instead of going straight ahead with as a long a shot as possible? If that shot is long enough and way beyond the 50m, that cancels any risk of conceding a goal straight back if an opponent wins the ball and kicks straight back ?
Quote from: Papy Oli on April 15, 2021, 04:00:53 AM..but you would get that same threat wherever you kick it, wouldn't you ? is it mostly a matter then of closing the angle towards the goal posts as much as possible for a kicking threat ?
Quote from: Madiel on April 15, 2021, 04:10:53 AMThat's part of it. But if it's out to the sides, it's also easier to guard against a return kick (coming into a forward) because there's less option of the direction of that kick. If you kick down the centre and an opponent gets it, they might have options left, right and middle as to where they kick to a forward, making it harder to defend all the possibilities.
Quote from: Madiel on April 15, 2021, 04:12:27 AMThe tipping website our office competition uses shows the betting odds for matches.I feel I should tell you: for Geelong vs North Melbourne, a $1 bet on Geelong pays $1.02, whereas a $1 bet on North Melbourne pays $14. That's amongst the most lopsided odds I've ever seen.
Quote from: Papy Oli on April 17, 2021, 11:53:14 PMCats up by only 6 at half-time...hmm...not entirely reassuring, is it... :blank:
Quote from: Madiel on April 18, 2021, 12:05:18 AMVery low score. Is it raining?EDIT: No, it just seems that Geelong is refusing to kick goals in order to keep the game interesting.
