11- Crunch Time

10 JUN:
More troubles in FMITL club land!
After another disappointing loss by John of the 'Hot Pies', he is feeling the heat as his tenure as manager could be over.
A hastily scheduled board meeting has been announced and there is a chance that he may be sacked.
A disappointed John had only this comment for @FMITipsters
More news as it comes to hand!

A very entertaining round of  FMI League tipping. All the results here.
Dave scored heavily early and skipped away to a handy lead (on the back of being so close on the Essendon margin), but Clinton snagged a great result (just one point off the Collingwood margin) to score a last minute draw. The Big Reds manager might come under pressure too soon, this draw sees them still around the foot of the table.

Consistent Col registered another win and another close margin... tipping very accurately that the Gold Coast would win. Boot missed a chance to secure a top three spot.

Amul again brings a duck egg to the table. Another loss, and another game further out of the finals. Andrew on the other hand got the job done in workman like fashion. Scoring in 4 of the 5 games. Close enough to win, but not for the bonus points.

Wal and the Pies both tipped the same Sydney margin, so the match came down to the 4 remaining games. Wal scored early, and when Geelong didn't bury GWS, John leveled the game. John was a bit too far under the Collingwood margin, so Wal scores the win by the narrowest of margins

The FMI was able to snatch the draw at the death against Mark. Both teams playing out a dreary encounter to a 2-all draw. Mark, who after having had his manger-ship questioned by the board, rang in changes to the structure, and at least tied the match. This should see off those calling for his head.
... for another week at least.

Teams of the Week:
Three teams get the nod this week for their efforts in scoring the bonus points.
- Coldogs gets his fourth nomination, and is in red hot form at the top of the table.
- Clinton and Dave also score a nomination, and both scored the bonus points in their head-to-head drawn match. Its Clinton's third nomination, and Dave's first (hooray!)

Table After 10 Matches:
A real split developing in the table now as the gap between 5th and 6th is stretched to 1.5 games.
But with 8 rounds to go before the finals, it is mathematically possible for all teams to get into the finals.

8 JUN:
Apologies for the delay!
Here are this weekends tips as selected bu you.

5 JUN:
Last-placed ISOTOPES board members have been questioning coach Mark Duffett over the direction of the team.
The 'Topes, with only 3 wins and a big -19 score difference, are trailing the field and running hot and cold, with big wins interspersed with drubbings.
After a board meeting, an Isotopes spokesman said
"Mark had the full support of the board and will coach the season out" 
Coach Mark offered this comment to @FMITipsters:

4 JUN:
This weeks teams to select from is more about which game misses out than which are included. 6 games to choose from, 5 to include means only one misses out.

These are the games to tip:
    Essendon -v- Carlton
    GWS -v- Geelong
    Adelaide -v- SMFC/Sydney
    Gold Coast -v- North Melbourne
    Melbourne -v- Collingwood

And we start the matchups again from the top, starting the second sequence of home and away matches.
   Clinton_V8 -v- DavPope
8th v 9th: Both sides coming off a loss, and both need to win to keep the season alive .

   Coldogs -v- TheHolyBoot
Last round winners go head to head. 2nd v 3rd for a chance at top spot, a loss sees them back toward missing finals.

   Amul82 -v- A_OKeefe
Another set of last round winners, and a real 8 point game. 5th v 6th means a win is a top 5 spot. A loss puts them back in the chasing pack

   Wal13Freo -v- SidebySidePies
Top of the table Wal, after defeating the FMI computer should be able to take the points against the 7th placed Pies. Can the Pies get back on track after another loss? 

   AFLFootyMaths -v- MarkDuffett
3rd v 10th as the hot-and-cold Mark must win to be in contention. The FMI also lost its 3rd kn a row and needs form to hold a top 5 spot.
