Greetings football fans - it's terrific to be back.
For those of you that have participated in previous seasons, and would like to go around again, the good news is that you have already been pre-registered. You're most welcome to add a comment letting me know that you're back, but you don't have to. That said, it's nice to hear from so many of you.
For the newcomers, we will be closing the registrations on Monday 26th February. That will give my little helper and I time to get all the ducks lined up for round one on Thursday. If you're keen, or you know someone who might be, now is the time to let me know about it.
I'll have more details for everyone in the days ahead, but the tipping rules remain the same, and there will be cash prizes for those that finish on the podium (and a few random prizes throughout the season).
And finally, if you don't know much about the game, Rusty does a fair job of explaining the basics to our North American friends. You can check it out below:
