W-League tipping champion a bit Fishy?
Robbie Striker Football - 10th February, 2017
With this season's W-League champion to be decided on Sunday evening on the west coast when Perth Glory and reining champions Melbourne City take the field, one W-League champion has already been decided.
Clearly the runout champion for Robbie Striker's W-League Tipping competition for 2016/17 was 'Fishy'. Finishing the season on 52 points a whopping 11 points in front of runner up 'boozees' with 'Bluebag Pete' a further 3 points behind for third place.
The distance of the win is even more impressive when you consider the short season of the W-League of only 14 rounds with four matches each round. Not even the self proclaimed tipping master Robbie Striker himself could match the big fish this season.
"Clearly something fishy was going on this season." Robbie said of the points difference between himself and Fishy.
Fishy showed a lot more respect and grace.
“I really enjoy Robbie Striker’s tipping competitions unique 3-2-1 scoring system. It makes tipping on all games that much more interesting and challenging, especially for matches where one team is seemingly a stand out favourite. It makes every match “live” to the final whistle and a last minute goal can change your tipping score from a 0 to 3 or vice versa – exciting or heartbreaking! This is a great alternative to the traditional selecting the winner/draw scoring system.
The Robbie Striker site is very user friendly with results and ladders updated in a timely manner. It can be frustrating to miss an “early” match and receive no points but it just means you have to be organised and get your selections in beforehand. I am rapt to be the W-League tipping champion because at the start of the season I knew hardly anything about the W-League and a lot of guess work paid off for me.”
Not only has Fishy earnt bragging rights over fellow tippers, unquestionable respect among peers when discussing the outcome of an upcoming W-League match but also a Melbourne Victory shirt as material reminder of the achievement.
