Mopsy , The Ghosts Torp came up with the collective group's average of picks for the ladder positions of teams, or something akin, and named it Wisdom of the Crowd. Mainlandy included it in the final list and we have been competing against it. It's proven to be a very average average.Who is Wisdom Of The Crowd?
couldn’t find his ladder prediction on the first few pages
I must have missed something…..

I was looking back through the thread for the WOTC origin and came across Knighters original post.So, I have proven to be truly abysmal at this, and yet I love it. Spiritually Scientific approach this year. I have averaged the ladder positions since 2016, looked at trends and tasted the wind. Here goes:
Wait till I get my formula working in the Thoroughbred thread! I can smell the money...although Corona killed my senses, maybe that's something else I can smell?I was looking back through the thread for the WOTC origin and came across Knighters original post.
Could be some money to be had for developing the formula to work out a dead last outcome predictor. KR Spiritually Scientific.
Congrats Midsy. Made every post a winner and hung on like Might and Power being chased down by Doriemus (Quickdraw).Well it came down to the wire and I had to check the results many times of the top 2 finishers, and there was only one point in it with Midsy (50) hanging on by one point over Quickdraw (51). Congratulations Midsy a deserved win as you were on top for most of the last rounds. Quickdraw (Port Adelaide, Western Bulldogs, GWS, West Coast and Carlton) and tigaman (GWS, West Coast, Fremantle, Carlton, North) both managed to pick 5 teams in their exact positions, a great effort. Gold1 had a horror last round and has finished a long last.

One team from top 4 misses finals altogether - my pick Cats
Three teams from outside the 8 make finals with one jumping into top 4 - picked Freo to be the Bolger and Melb and blues to play finals.
pies and saints to fall away
I've had a chat with WOTC and he started humming that Angels song, you know, where the crowd sings "No way, get *smile*, *smile* off!"Good point. I need to appeal the ladder placings. Surely with 3 correct teams I should be above average, not below average.
