In regards to the Footy Tipping competition,this year I have one 1st prize winner, three 2nd prize winners and one 3rd prize winner. In past years I have divided the prize in percentages i.e 50%,25% and 15%..
Any suggestions on how to divide the 2nd prize when there are 3 winners???.
We also give out the wooden spoon dressed up with a scarf in the 'lossers" favorite team color.

Hi Debbie,

Yes, footy tipping is a large part of the AFL culture. I don't follow it myself but I believe it goes something like this:

- Each week, everyone that is part of the competition 'tips' 9 winners. (There are 18 teams that play each week)
- If you tip a winning team you get 1 point. If you lose, you get none.
- At the end of the season (24 rounds), the person with the highest score wins.

You can also celebrate a winner each week to make it even more fun.
The grand final at the end of the season is a great opportunity for a party and celebration.

Perhaps you could share with us some NF L culture sometime!

THANK YOU Talita...... I'm still confused about the activity. do the residents bet on teams during the season and then have the party & competitions at the end of the season?

Hello, I'm new to this site and I guess a little confused about footy tipping. Is that soccer, rugby or american football?

Hi Debbie,

This activity was posted by a member in Australia - it relates to AFL (Australian Football League), which is a very popular football code in Australia. It is different to soccer, rugby and american football.
