Please note the following describes the general application of the Five Lives safety net AFTER round 1 of the 2012 season. Special arrangements have been made for Round 1 of the 2012 season as per Admin Announcement 2 on Gimme Five repeated below at the end of this page.

The Safety Net

We help players who miss a week or two of their tips, or who want to join us after the season has started and still want to play to win the season long prize competition. (Well it’s a long season and we know that sometimes players might not be able to get to a computer in time to get their tips in - for all sorts of good, bad, and downright silly reasons. We don’t want people to feel it’s the end of the road if they miss the odd week of tipping, or were a little late in joining, so we have an insurance scheme called "Five Lives".) Here's how it works:

If you are a late starter and join us at any time between rounds 1 - 5 as far as the main season long competition is concerned, you will automatically use the number of lives needed to bring you up to date, maximum five, as if you had registered and entered before Round 1, but forgot to enter your tips. The table following illustrates:         

First round  you  actually play

Number of Five  Lives used to bring up to date

Number of lives remaining for rest of season

1

0

5

4

3

7 or later

  Otherwise the Five Lives system works thus for your remaining lives: 

  1. If you don't enter your tips by the time the round closes, we'll automatically give you the benefit of Magic Mike's wisdom - in other words, we'll give you his tips and banker selections. BUT

  2. You've only got Five Lives - so you'll automatically receive Magic Mike's tips through our system only five times over the season. Thereafter you won't get any further lives and will score "0" for any round you fail to tip.  AND 

  3. Other than the main season long competition itself, you can't win a multi-round or single round prize where you received a Magic Mike's tipping prediction in that multi-round/single round competition - you've got to predict and enter yourself every relevant round to be eligible to win.

  4. When you use a Five Lives life, you lose your banker Last Man Standing competition life

So if you miss a week or two, or even up to five weeks tipping from the start of the comp', you're still in the main season long tipping game. We all have busy weeks, holidays, things like that where we don't get a chance to get our tips in, but we're trying to keep it fair for the people who make the extra effort to play every week.

NB: If you join as an active player after Round 1 you cannot be in the Last Man Standing game unless we run a second LMS comp during the season. 

The Scoring Bonus

Everyone will receive a 5 points bonus (credited up front) for each of their five lives that they don't use during the season, so that's worth up to 25 points at the end of the season if you play every week and regardless of how good your tips are!

SPECIAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR ROUND 1, 2012 ARE AS FOLLOWS:

ADMIN ANNOUNCEMENT- 2 February 24th 2012
Special Five Lives arrangements for Round 1 of the 2012 season

The AFL have created an extended Round 1 which sees the first game bouncing off on Saturday, March 18th at 7.20pm. The next scheduled game is the following Thursday, March 29th at 7.40pm.

Under our usual game practices we'd require all our players to have the entire Round 1 tips saved and locked down 15 minutes before game 1 on 18th March. HOWEVER...we feel that this would detract from our players ability to consider important team announcements and other factors relevant to the remaining 8 games commencing almost a week later!

So, for round 1 in 2012, the system will (a) allow players to tip the Swans/Giants game up to 7:05pm on the 18th and then lock down that game (b) tip the other 8 round 1 games up to 7:25pm on the 29th before locking down round 1 in its entirety.

No-one will lose a life for failing to tip the two Sydneys' game on the 18th and those who fail to do so will get Magic Mike's tip "Free of Charge" so to speak. However if you fail to tip the remaining 8 games in Round 1 you will lose a life .
