Ouch, no bigger sledge than that in world sport. :)
Found out yesterday the Saints have won just 22 finals games in 124 years of footy :oops:
They win one final every 5.5 years o_O

I had to go check them Saints stats for their finals record. Even I can't believe it's that bad

Started in 1897 and finals wins in

1913 - 2 wins
1939 - 1 win
1965 - 1973 - 8 wins and only Flag in 1966
1993 - 1 win
1997 - 2 wins
2004 - 2022 - 8 wins.

11 of the 22 wins in the last 30 years. So take that away and from 1897- 1991 - 95 seasons, just 11 wins.
Averaging even worse than the above, one finals win nearly every 9 years o_O


Tigers have won 56-37, 60% :clap1
Second best to the 'Family Club' Dawks 53-33, 61%
7 clubs have a higher winning %
10 clubs have a higher losing %

Carlton - 65-72, 47%
Pies - 82-101, 45%
Geelol - 58-72, 45%
Saints - 22-31, 42%
Worst - Dogs - 21-35, 38%

Dogs just the 21 Finals wins, but in their defence the Saints started in 1897, the Dogs 28 years later in 1925 :LOL:

Week 3 of the tipping comp is upon us and we have a very interesting slate of games this time around.

Genuine coin flips all of them, and after last weeks performance I wouldn't be surprised if Ridley replaced his sons tips with the fate of a coin toss instead !

Green Bay Packers (+1.5) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1.5) 6:25am Monday Sept 26th
San Francisco 49ers (-1.5) @ Denver Broncos (+1.5) 10:20am Monday Sept 26th
Dallas Cowboys (+1.5) @ New York Giants (-1.5) 10:15am Tuesday Sept 27th


Tips to be in by 6:25am on Monday

Tune in especially for the 49ers game, where Red and Rice are likely to lose their collective minds over Jimmy G turnovers.

Good luck punters !

Ridley Jnr has been read the riot act and is very sheepish about his pathetic tipping last week. That said, he is supremely confident that he has it in the bag this week. Here goes nothing!

Tampa Bay (-1.5)
Denver (+1.5)
Dallas (+1.5)

:help

Total had already gone over prior to that. O/U 37.5 it started at.

There's a lot of low totals this week.

Some surprising results so far :oops:

It's been wild. I flicked between Bills/Fins and Chiefs/Colts matches.

Chiefs blew it. Got cute going for a fake field goal attempt instead of taking the points. Very costly in the end.

I love what Miami have done at their stadium. Been built so that the home team is in the shade all game on the sideline, the visitors however are sitting in the blazing sun. Adds an extra dimension to home field advantage.

I was watching from 3am, one eye open and especially the Bills game 495 yards to Miami 212, first downs 31 to 15, total plays 90 to 39, and you lose. How? The key stat or play though was Josh Allen fumbles at the defensive 4, Recovered by Miami and they get it one yard out - TD!! Lose the game 19-21.
Chiefs too - 60 yards more total yards, yards per play 5.3 to 3.8, but a fumble by KC special teams early in the game at their 4, Indy turn it into a TD, a 34 yard missed field goal by KC in the 4th, a Mahomes interception nearing game ending and that's a loss as well - 17-20, boom boom!!
