Famous Face – episode II

Episode 2 of the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP’s segment, ‘FAMOUS FACE’ features a handful of our tipsters from the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP.

DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster, STIV was watching an obscure channel on Foxtel the other night when he came across a replay of a famous Rugby Union match from the past…11th August 2001 to be exact.

The famous match involved a New Zealand v Australia  Bledisloe Cup contest at ‘THE HOUSE OF PAIN’, Carrisbrook, Dunedin -New Zealand (woo err woo).

Tipsmaster’s note:  I wasn’t sure how to spell ‘woo err woo’, the sarcastic,supposedly  scared type moment  I was looking for which is meant to be synonymous with The House of Pain – please forgive me, I’m sure you all know what I mean.


Stiva was watching the replay of this famous contest (where the Aussies nailed the Kiwi’s arses at the House of Pain ). Suddenly the camera flashed on the sea of gold Wallaby guenseys in the crowd, only to find DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipsters, Stiva, Barnsey, Legend, Pear, Mooseboy and Col, supporting the Wallabies, singing songs and generally being very sensible Wallaby supporters on a rugby tour of New Zealand.

DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster AAA AUSSIE MAL was also amongst the group, as was AUSSIE VIC, both supporting the ill fated All Blacks.

The ‘Where’s Wally’ contest in the crowd pic is to find the secret celebrity guest star, Richard Hadlee’s niece. Yes folks, the niece of Kiwi test cricket star (and wanker), Richard Hadlee happened to be in the crowd just near us and she took a little offence at being reminded that her famous uncle is indeed a wanker.

Scenes we’d like to see – episode I

SCENES WE’D LIKE TO SEE.

Welcome to the introductory episode of SCENES WE’D LIKE TO SEE.

This is a new segment in the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP where you, the tipster, are invited to share with us a situation that you would like to see occur in real life in the land of AFL footy (or anything else for that matter)

DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster, AAA AUSSIE MAL has introduced the first episode of  SCENES WE’D LIKE TO SEE when he submitted his tips this week.

AAA AUSSIE MAL submitted his tips thus:

‘Bulldogs – maybe we need a sweep on which round Big Bad Barry snaps & who he smashes. I’m thinking Round 8 v Sydney – victim is Tadhg Kennelly (is that pronounced Tie?)’


Tipsmaster’s note: Aussie Mal…that’s a scene I’d like to see!

If you have a scene you’d like to see, please share it with us all in the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP’s newest segment ‘SCENES WE’D LIKE TO SEE’

Ridiculous comments from Poor ol’ Footscray Supporters – episode VI

Serial RIDICULOUS COMMENTS FROM POOR OL’ FOOTSCRAY SUPPORTERS offender and DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP tipster, ‘THE DOGGFATHER’ has been at it again.

We are all familiar with the age old number 1 rule of the DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP, N.P.R (Never Pick Richmond).

Well, THE DOGGFATHER has invented his own new DGES WORLD FAMOUS FOOTY TIPPING COMP rule, A.P.F (Always Pick Footscray)

TIPSMASTER’s NOTE: How ridiculous. My translation to the A.P.F – Alas Poor Footscray.

LIVE AFL TV COVERAGE

I read with interest that AFL boss Andrew Demetriou wants television stations to show live TV coverage for all matches on free to air tv.

This is an issue that has always puzzled me.

I often hear irate footy supporters ringing radio stations, groaning that their team is televised on delayed telecast and they can’t watch their team play live on TV.

I’ve never had an issue with this one.

I’ve always thought if you want to watch your team live, you can always go to the game and see them live.

If you want to watch the game on tv, all you have to do is keep away from the radio, internet and other such medium and watch the delayed game on tv.

This to me has always been the next best thing to watching it live.

I’m interested in your feedback on this one because frankly, I’ve never lost any sleep over the delayed telecast footy match.
