  • AFL Qtr x Qtr
    I hate to bang on about this in the third post, but its worth mentioning I believe. Previously I posted how I believe the grand final could well be a low scoring match as well as commenting about how there might be some value in first score being a behind so maybe I’ll back that last comment with a bit more information. Since 2003 more goals have been kicked than...

  • AFL Grand Final
    What a ripper grand final it will be. That is, apart from the thunderstorms and possible hail that is meant to disrupt it.

Now that might sound like a small total, but both clubs have by far the best two defences in the competition. When they played in round 14, only 176 points were scored, and yet that was played in the nice indoor conditions of the docklands. But...

  • Brownlow Medal 2009
    Whilst sportpunter have not come up with any specific predictions for the Brownlow medal, one of our regular clients, Flosso has come up with his predictions which you can download in the forum. He’s done pretty good in past years, and this year he reckons Ablett will take out the crown. Not a very adventurous prediction, but the probability that he suggests means a...
