To all on the Thinkers honour board ( I'm humbled to get a mention) I congratulate you and wish success for 2019.
Thinker without being a pain in the you know where did the Guru win one back when we all started?

You were Oh so close last year, I can see you having an ordinary year this year old mate, I'm due to rise again.

Tiger fans have a high representation on the honour board.

Wow! Newbie got a mention too. I reckon it was because it was my first year here and I knew nothing and “jagged” a third place, albeit in the company of the incomparable Mr Ashford! An honour to share that tiny podium with MA. I’m chuffed at 2014 but a bit peeved I’ve done nothing since (ha-ha). Maybe a case of the more I know the less I know. Hmmm…

Interesting that there has been no real breakaways(maybe Tiger in 2015). Makes for a good comp.

Don’t be so harsh on yourself Ashford
You were consistent with the Queensland teams... never in the running

I see your name on the Honours Board but I don't see Anonymous?

Apparently in 2016 (amazing coincidence)
You could only place if your name ended in “ick”
So you only had to start your name with a D and you could of won

Thanks Mary.
You were calling and tipping close by, as you weren't far off the pace either.

Congratulations to Footy Chick, Big Pete, & Jack Starkey.
Congrats also go to all Roosters followers, it was a cracking game, shame someone had to lose.
Thanks again to Thinker & his Little Helper.
Looking forward to meeting Steel Panther in a couple of weeks, and yes, I'm wrapped in cotton wool!!
I'll be checking for off season comments occasionally.
I hope that everyone has a great off season, Merry Christmas (yes, it's just around the corner), & a very Happy & healthy New Year.
Bye for now, manyana.

It's called an honour board because it's an honour to get your name there. People work hard with their tips, and yes I relied on Qld teams too much this year but hey you support your team and your state no matter what. Your comments dishonour this page so I suggest you either sign up with Thinker (and we'll see how good you are) or bugger off and leave it to the people who care.

Greetings from the Spartan Warrior,
I congratulate the top three on thy success in their consistent tipping this year. Tis no mean feat to attaineth the Master Thinker honour board. A valorous tipster knoweth at which hour to tip against the trend and at which hour not too. Congratulations to Footy Chic, BigPeteBx and Jack Starkey, you’ve forsooth hath played this Master Thinkers football competition much like the Kenny Rogers song ‘The Gambler’.
You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealing's done

Aye, the dealings are done with and there art three deserved winners.
I leaveth thee all with three insightful quotes from the Master coach himself…Wayne Bennett

“A winner feels responsible for more than his job. A loser says: ‘I only work here.’”

“The winner says: ‘There ought to be a better way to do it. Loser says: ‘That’s the way it’s always been done here.’”


“There is no greater tribute in sport than to be called a winner, especially when you’ve known the feeling of a loss.”

Quis est vir spurius aliquis accipit autem quando non potest.
The Spartan Warrior, hast spoken.

Country singing spartan

mark ashford's picture

I feel for you my friend. You seem to get nothing but bad news.
All I can say is I hope your future treatments have a positive effect.
I look forward to your news over the off season.

mark ashford's picture

At least Spartan's comments give us something to read whereas your's are absolute dribble.
Last time I respond to your nonsense.

Christine 's picture

Anonymous I will say one thing for spartan at least he calls me lady Christine & He has it all over you with his vocabulary heed the warning the thinker doesn't like it when we turn against each other on his website...

Christine 's picture
