Top Tipsters
« on: January 09, 2011, 10:09:22 AM »
After week 1 of 2011, the table is as follows (if you have chosen a ridiculously long name I can't be bothered to type it in full, so work it out for yourselves).
One point for correct result, bonus point for each correct margin  e.g  7 (5+2)

nps           9 (5+4)
Red Dev     8 (5+3)
medici       7
GTIY         7
Boots        6
wagner      6 (4+2)
KJ            5
Bandit       5
HBM         5
Botts       4
Huddy      4 (scoreline predictions unclear - could have been 4+2 if they made sense!)
C2N         4

Full house for medici and GTIY, but bonus points make the difference!
No preening, no sulking everyone. Long way to go yet.
(I myself got a maximum 14, but modesty prevents me from crowing and I don't want to discourage the rest of you.) ;D

I hope that at the end of the season you'll be providing us with a full Powerpoint presentation on the predictions/scoring for the second half of the season. ;)

Whilst not wanting to cast any doubt what ever on the voracity of your top tipsters table I believe NPS should have 5+4 ::)

Not wishing to start an avalanche of whinging, moaning, ungrateful b------ds, I am happy at this early stage to let the results stand, happy in the knowledge the Moderators decision is final.
However should you feel disposed to slip an extra point on later in the season I can also turn a blind eye to that ;D

In fact with my eyesight I can probably turn 2 blind eyes!!!!!!

nps - you are correct. I have reviewed the leaderboard and you are now at the apex. ;D
And I think you meant 'veracity', the word you used being a lot different? ???
Next week I will do the calculations before the third bottle of wine. :P

Likewise I will try to reply before my 3rd bottle of red wine!!! I thought it was just me that had the drink problem cant wait to tell the wife I am not alone ;D

Thanks for the review I know these things are not easy. I would like to claim my grammatical error was a mere typographical one, influenced by the aforesaid red wine , but given that E and O are 6 spaces apart no chance!

Red wine! What a chav. Only a Sauv Blanc from, sorry to say, kiwi country is acceptable on this forum.

Well there you go, did not know that chavs drank any sort of wine.
Used to drink both but only because her that shall be obeyed used to drink white only and I had to help her out, being a perfick gent.
However since she stopped drinking wine because it made her feel ill ( I tried to tell her not to drink it like halfs of lager) I reverted to RIOJA ,2005 vintage preferred or a 1999 gran reserva if I am flush!!!!
