    ... Hate to burn a 3rd change but can't not have a runner, especially one so strong... 3rd change, Women's Wimbledon. Ashley Fuck Liam Barty I retire to Iga Swatiek...

    Comment


      This is just a drill, you don't have to do anything until mid-July at the earliest.

      14 of the initial 26 events are complete - and NBA basketball, US Open Golf and World Cup of Darts will join them in the next week.
      So will start to run out of events quite soon.
      Putting together a rough outline of events for the second half of the season.
      Something like this so far
      Sport Event 1st 2nd 3rd 4th Start Date End Date End Month
      1 Soccer Championship as at 31/12 4 2 1 30/07/22 31/12/22 Dec

      6 Cricket T20 World Cup 4 2 1 1 16/10/22 13/11/22 Nov
      7 Darts World Championship Best English player 4 2 1 13/12/22 01/01/23 Dec
      8 Handball Womens European Championship 4 2 1 04/11/22 20/11/22 Nov
      9 Horses Arc de Triomphe 4 2 1 02/10/22 02/10/22 Oct
      10 Horses King George Chase 4 2 1 26/12/22 26/12/22 Dec
      11 Golf Presidents Cup Top Rest Of World Points Scorer 4 2 1 22/09/22 25/09/22 Sept
      12 Volleyball Mens World Cup 4 2 1 26/08/22 11/09/22 Sept
      13 Rugby 7s Mens World Cup 4 2 1 09/09/22 11/09/22 Sept
      14 Tennis Davis Cup 4 2 1 1 14/09/22 27/11/22 Nov
      15 Tennis US Open Men 4 2 1 1 29/08/22 11/09/22 Sept
      16 Rugby Autumn Internationals, England top try scorer 4 2 1 06/11/22 26/11/22 Nov
      17 Athletics European Championships, Country Most Medals 4 2 1 15/08/22 21/08/22 August
      .
      I think 1->14 are fairly straightforward and copies of events that have worked before.

      15- Men's Tennis failed before when everyone picked the same player - I think perhaps it might work now as the old guys are nearing the end and there are young players challenging for majors.
      16 - I haven't used the Autumn Internationals in Rugby before, but it is one of the few sports going up directly against Qatar. But everyone has different opponents/amount of games, so limiting it to one countries try-scorers seems sensible.
      17 - this is new but I don't think it's too left field. There's 3 or 4 countries who usually dominate but also scope for anyone (usually mdoug) to do a bit of research and find out that Portugal or Belgium have a golden generation of athletes. Crucially (for me), this is the only event I could find that actually finishes in August. I hate too long gaps between events.

      17 events would mean 43 overall, but gives some slack if any of them don't work because everyone picks the same, which I think is possible in a few spots this year.

      But as always, if there's anything anyone can come with that I've missed then let me now and I'll look into in. Or if you an make a case why any of the above shouldn't be in let me know.
      (Note, I passed over Rugby League World Cup and Womens Rugby Union World Cup because of extreme odds-on favs)

        i think this is great and i'll definitely have a look and have more comments/ideas if i can find some, but one that jumps out is why not replace 16 england top try scorer with rugby league world cup try scorer, there will be at least 7 or 8 candidates easily rather than 3 or 4 max.

          Nice to see Roglic winning the Dauphine to give a bit of hope that the TdF will be competitive.

                  other than oosthuizen, the US open is stacked! no doubt we'll lose a couple of serious contenders after saturday, but that is a stunning top 20 in contention!!!

                      Scotland knocked out of the darts in the quarter-finals by England.
                      England v Australia, and Wales v Netherlands is the semi-final line-up. Going to be very swingy in terms of this competition, particularly the second game.

                      In the Golf, Rahm is nicely positioned one shot behind the leaders, whilst DJ and Morikawa are 6 shots back which might be too much for victory but gives some hope of Top 5 points.
                      Disastrous 3rd rounds for Koepka and Schauffele make them unlikely to score.

                        Scotland were woeful altogether. Sunday now looks like anti sweat Wales and Rahm while playing a 1250 gtd with a load of petrol heads up for the rally.

                              The obvious smart play would be to go for Swiatek, longest unbeaten run and all that... But I have to continue my standard bad decisions until the end!

                              ​​​​​​Tennis change to jabeur please
                              Go big or go homeless.

                                  Brave/mad choice is to save the change for fav-hunting in Arc/KG, and effectively be on the field v Swiatek. I'll see if I bottle that plan later.
                                  Barty and Osaka situation is such a shame. Even up to a week or two ago I thought Barty might do a u-turn and at least turn up and defend and probably be competitive.
                                  Surely going on court as defending champion is part of the winning experience.

                                        Game 4 of the Ice-Hockey tonight. Tampa got one back on Monday so now it's 2-1 to Colorado.

                                        T20 cricket is motoring along - nearly finished the 14 game group stage.
                                        Top 4 in each group qualify - In the quarter-finals the winner of North will be home to 4th in South etc.
                                        Mixed news on our picks - in the doomed box are Notts, Kent and Sussex.
                                        Cruising into the quarters are Surrey ; and Somerset look likely to join them.
                                        Work to be done but still some hope for Yorkshire and Hampshire.

                                          Bollox - I meant to change Osaka to Swiatek but them the 'aul lad ended up back in A&E and being admitted and it completely slipped my mind

                                          it's clearly all his fault if I don't win this year

                                            Don't worry, we will laugh together when she plays like Bambi on Ice and goes out in the 3rd round whilst scowling at the surface.
