    +1. Really, not much can beat European soccer at its best. I haven't watched 1 minute of the NBA finals because I've been watching recorded Euro games from earlier in the day.

    No doubt.


    And who thought Czech and Greece would come out of their group?

    Yeah, dissapointed in poland.

    If Ukraine doesn't pass, both co-organizers are out which would be surprising.

    In other news, Ronaldo finally showed up.

    Last game of first round are always played at the same time so noone is advantaged (ie: if you know the result of the first game, you could play differently)

    Is something screwed with the scoring??

    Batman and NYJCAP both picked the Spain-Croatia game correctly with the right score and got 2.50 points.

    VFernand, Frostlich and I got the Italy-Ireland game correctly with the right score and only got 2.25 points


    WLF?

    I think part of it depends on how many pick the right score. So, if only one person picked the right score they might get like 3 points total....otherwise the points are divided equally for that game....that's the best sense I can make of it anyway. OH...that's assuming Rusty isn't cheating.

My "throw a dart" method will end in tears by the end of the tourney. Wish I'd put some $ on some of the games though! Also, I'm ahead of only about 8 people who are taking this seriously?

    ^ ^ the pics above, Sort of what I was getting at with that "pictures from the crowd" thread I started here somewhere some weeks ago, just never got around to hunting around for pics for it. Every tourney needs some gratuitous female pics to complete it.

    Didn't end up getting Setanta to watch the games and now its too late - just seen some highlight footage - I'll watch the quarters and semis on stream - the final will be live here on free to air TV.

    I am a "soccer" fan though - just haven't been following it this past season and a half. Not a complete noob as you know - funny in my local football tipping comp (for the local football league for Aussie Rules football) I am running next to last and I get all the latest news and stats etc. I think the more info you have sometimes the worse you can be - the throw a dart method has something to recommend it in my case in terms of the Euros. Sh*t if an octopus can pick the winners of the World Cup what does that say?

    If I claim the Euro tipping thing I'll put a picture of some calamari as my sig, and frankly I think that would be appropriate. In fact whoever wins it I think that should be mandatory - a picture of an octopus or a squid for their sig.
