Wooo! Just like my team, I'm in last place for the season!

Being an impossible homer has its good points, but tipping when your team is trash ain't one of them.

Randy is still killing it overall, and threadkiller took out round 6 with 10/12.

Congrats to lynxmania for being the least-bad tipster this round! Wink

No games tomorrow night, so that buys some extra time to get next round's tips locked in.

Why would you jinx me right before a game in which I picked the Lynx?

Doh! Now I hate myself.

If anyone needs me I'll be over here in timeout for the next half hour.

11-0 is still easily the longest winning streak within a round.
myrtle matched pilight as round winner with 13/15

Randy moved 2 wins clear at the top of the overall standings.


Nearly everyone correctly tipped LA today, but for some reason the game thread poll was 5-4 in favour of the Dallas "0-9 on the road" Wings, so Rebkell Polls is in a bad mood today after a big slide down the standings.

Round 10 tips are due by 7pm ET tomorrow.
Please double-check that your tips are all in, because I'm pretty sure I had pre-tipped this round a few weeks ago but mine was empty. Hopefully that's just my memory failing me rather than a glitch in the database.

Lots of green on the page this round Smile Especially well tipped by FemmeFatale & myrtle.

Randy still maintaining that 2 point lead at the top of the overall standings.

No tipping is required for the All Star game. Round 10 starts next Tuesday.

1. Tipping Reminder!

2. Don't worry about tipping the re-scheduled Mystics-Aces game. When that game finally has a result I think I can just apply the result to the original game that's in Round 7.

Congrats to adamj95 for scoring 10/13 to win round 11.
Congrats also to Randy - the first player to reach 100 points! Randy is the youngest to reach 100, and also the fastest, taking just 11 rounds to reach the milestone.

No games tonight, so Round 12 tips are due by 7:30pm ET tomorrow.

jamied77 with 15/16 - the best round of the season - is the winner of round 12, and moves up to equal 2nd place.
3 rounds left to catch Randy at the top of the standings.

Round 13 tips are due by 7:30 ET tomorrow.

Yikes. Good question.
Too late to fix it now so I'll edit the results afterwards to ensure everyone is credited for a win for that game.

This round's winner is myrtle, with 10 points in a tough round.

Equal runner-up Randy extended his overall lead to 5 and is going to be tough to catch now.

Round 14 tips are due by 7:30pm ET tomorrow

myrtle goes back-to-back, shooting 12/13 to win round 14.

Randy extends his lead to 6 on the overall standings with just 1 round left. I don't think even the aussie cricket team could blow it from here.

Round 15 tips are due by 7pm ET tomorrow evening.

Congrats to ... pilight, for winning round 15 of the tipping contest.

2 of the 15 rounds saw 3 people tied for 1st place. The other 13 rounds had a sole winner, and 11 different people won one. myrtle had 3 round wins plus one of the tied wins.

But Mr Consistency was Randy, with 141 points for a clear overall win. Very well played!
Please PM me your postal address to receive your prize.

AdmiralNeeda was runner up with 134, and
jamied77 came 3rd on 132, tied with the results of the Rebkell game thread polls.

Full Results

Thanks to everyone who participated Smile

Thanks Luuc, for putting the contest together. It made this season one of the most fun seasons ever, even though I was a little nervous about the outcome of most every game. I ended rooting for just about every team in the league one time or another since I always wanted the team I picked to win the game, whether I actually liked them or not. I did get to see a lot of close and exciting games I would have probably never watched in the past. So thanks again for your efforts.

I looked back over my tips and counted the red boxes for each team. I found the least predictable (actually the most disappointing) teams were Mercury (10), Aces (9) and Sun (8) totaling 43% of my missed tips. Most predictable were Liberty and Fever.
