An alarming and frustrating trend that takes the fun out of footy tipping

The NRL and AFL is in full swing since resuming recently.

And aren’t we thankful.

Shorter seasons and an unpredictable future makes it tough going for punters.

Players either pulling out of a team or being named at the last minute – after tipping deadlines – is a constant menace.

Punters either refer to betting, form, the weather, head to head history, home ground advantage, players or coaches they loathe or whether a game is played at day or night when it comes to making a tip.

Some also refuse to tip against their own team or select a team they dislike when they’re absolute living certainties.

Those individuals never win tipping competitions.

Your author bases his tips on one criteria.

Who is playing.

What will be the line ups when both teams take the field.

An impossible task these days.

As a consequence participating voluntarily in NRL and AFL tipping competitions has waned in 2020.

The late inclusions and omissions continue.

May consider pulling out altogether in the future because these late changes to teams is a farce.

Takes the fun out of tipping.

Sadly, it’s a rare phenomenon to see NRL and AFL teams not make late changes.

Keep the opposition in the dark.

And in the process treat punters like mugs.

Three key players pull out of the Greater Western Sydney at late notice against the Western Bulldogs last weekend.

Tipped the Giants, but would have been on the Bulldogs had the GWS omissions been announced before deadline.

No doubt.

Key players return to the GWS line up against Collingwood thus giving the Giants a 50/50 chance of getting over the line.

Tipped the Giants and thankfully there were no late changes to the side.

No late changes for that matter to the Magpies line up as well.

Hence a fair match up.

In that situation you can cop a loss.

And if a player unfortunately gets injured, which comes with the territory, then so be it.

Giants pair Davis and Williams, as well as Pies defender Howe failed to last the distance on Friday night.

There was a chance that James Tedesco would miss the St George Illawarra game on Friday night for the Sydney Roosters.

He was a non starter.

There was no mention, however, that missing Roosters teammate Josh Morris was a doubtful starter.
