Good afternoon, brave tippers of the port,

Really should have got to you all last night, but the allure of Cabernet Franc, a Chicken curry and a roaring fire was all too much.  It’s a magic time of year really; walking the dog on the beach and digging a large hole for no particular reason with the 7 year old, a pre dinner highlight. 

Finally got rid of the Good Friday staff party hangover with a cold pint of Pirate Life Pale Ale sometime late in the last quarter as the Saints held firm and secured top spot…am I dreaming?  This and some other crazy good football moments just underscoring this brilliant start to the season; Eddie Betts, Harry McKay of Carlton, the Port road win, Freo reminding us that GWS are brittle.  Rest assured, if we beat the Camry’s at Marvel on Saturday night, you will absolutely not hear the end of it for a while thank you very much.  Also, Anzac Day will be a belter…

I’ll keep it short this week as we all must get on with things and put your tips in because THERE IS A GAME TOMORROW NIGHT ON A WEDNESDAY.  Get ‘em in, folks. 

Celia Broughan is skipping away at the top, a host of us not far behind.  Expect my old mate and local councillor Joost den Hartog to make a serious leap from near the bottom, Kennedy Simpson, we need more from you.  Dana, come on.  And Gator, what’s up?

Order in chef: The Cauliflower deliciousness and that new Tomato Salad + 2 x glasses of Chardonnay.

Have a great week everyone,

Cheers, Crispian.

 Port Admiral Footy Tips - Round 4 results

Port Admiral Footy Tips
Results for Port Admiral Footy Tips Round - 4

Good evening, fine footy tipping folk,

 

Sorry for the late one, just back from the tropics and now typing this as the lights of Woodville oval flood my street, the women’s team having kicked the blokes off the park for some solid circle work.  Really good way to get picked if you had a shocker on the weekend; just run your butt off during circle work screaming for the pigskin and gather 63 touches in 12 minutes, repeat.

 

Apologies for last week’s inaccurate reporting by inputting the wrong result for the North game, I promise I won’t maybe accidentally do it again this season after one too many Sunday night Ardbegs.

 

And so as the NBA playoffs begin and the Saints wedge themselves into the top 8 after 4 rounds for the first time in quite some time, we continue to see brilliantly fought games of footy, upsetting the tipping universe with such games as ADELAIDE ARE ACTUALLY NO GOOD.  Well, I don’t know, but really, they surely are better than that yeah?  Nah?  Also, I think I like watching Gold Coast.  I know!  Sssshhhhh.

 

Rosetta Wesson giving Chef Stu Wesson an 8-2 thrashing this week is most enjoyable.  Rosie moves up 52 places into 10th overall, essentially equal 3rd, in a timely reminder that good tipping is a good, good thing.  Brother Rowan gets a shout out this week as he piles the pressure on his colleague Dave Lolicato, ahead by 3.  Looking for some improvement from the Kiley family over the next few weeks; Peter, Daniel and publican Angus.

 

Easter footy is a good thing, this round looks like a doozy.  Be safe on the roads people!

 

Order in chef: Seafood basket and a pint of lemon squash please thanks.

 

Have a great week everyone,

 

Cheers, Crispian.

 Port Admiral Footy Tips - Round 3 results

Port Admiral Footy Tips
Results for Port Admiral Footy Tips Round - 3

Hello there, fearless tipsters...

 

I do love that weekend.  That weekend where EVERYONE is back to footy.  All the amateurs, the second round of the SANFL, the country leagues, the under 8’s at Woodville South on Sunday morning, running around like little silly bananas as the head coach tries in vain to organise the forwards, backs and mids.  Even at this very early stage, I can’t help but see the future in some; a young Peter Matera, a likely leaning tower of Paul Salmon, an eager in and under Nathan Burke, devouring the half time oranges and purely enjoying their sport, in the sparkling Autumn morning sunshine.

 

Cutting through all of the big league bullshit that often surrounds the AFL, I honestly think that the footy is proper good again.  That Port loss to Brisbane was just an excellent watch, I thought.  Bad kicking for goal is exposed even more with the 6-6-6 setup, allowing for the counter attack at furious pace.  Eric Hipwood reminds me of a young Riewoldt, special stuff.

 

So Geelong are the early scary good deep certain top 4 chance, yeah?  Selwood on a wing works, they’ll go deep.  Meanwhile, would have loved the road win in Perth for a 3-0 start.  Ah well.  Also are the Tigers and Demons truly stuffed?  Surely not…

 

So!  Halina goes top by 1, many of us stuck on 12 – 14…publican Jim (Henry) currently pipping Dad Russel by 1, many other battles warning up, much content for up coming weeks.

 

Order in chef: That new mushroom burger thingo please.  Chef.  Thanks.

 

Have a great week everyone,

 

Cheers, Crispian.

Good afternoon, brave tippers of the Port...

 

The Port river is calm and serene on this first day of April.  I’m reminded of the immense beauty of this part of of the world every morning as I drive over Dick Diver bridge off the northern connector, onto the Birkenhead bridge and into Commerical road, past Low & Slow, the best BBQ in the land.  The Wonderwalls festival in the Port is really beautiful; come on down for a look and a pint…

 

Erin Phillips and co getting it done yesterday was the best bit of sport over the weekend, apart from that Karl Towns block on Kevin Durant, apart from Joshy Bruces’ hanger, apart from the SAINTS GO MARCHING IN AGAIN.  Seriously guys, we were top of the ladder for 25 minutes on Saturday evening and life was good.

 

I’m a little short on time today, stocktake of the bottleshop and wondering what to buy Hendo for his birthday top of the list.  I’m very pleased to smugly announce that I got an 8, along with Halina and Celia…the local business shout out this week is to Kelly McKinnon of Black Diamond Tattoo over the road from the pub; Kelly’s a top bloke and can ink…Kelly got a 4 this week, as did last years’ runner up, Ben Rusanoff, sous chef Declan and Phil Paysden the Irishman who dwells in Semaphore.  Did I mention I got an 8?

 

Are we learning anything about footy yet this year?  Accurate defensive clearing, everyone run forward, dob it inside 50 into space for the running collect and goal.  It’s slingshot football.  I think I’m enjoying it.

 

Order in chef: NEW MENU TUESDAY!  So for now, Chicken Schnitzel with gravy please thanks.

 

Have a great week everyone,

 

Cheers, Crispian.

Good day, fine tippers of the Port Admiral Hotel!

Welcome to the (late) Monday morning wrap; that odd time of day when I should be cleaning something or seeking out fabulous new wines or discussing hot sauces with Hendo…for the next 23 weeks though it’ll be general weekend football observations / St Kilda joy & sadness / other useful bits of western suburbs information, like a traffic report or such (can confirm; Port Road running fine today). 

Big annual thanks to Peter Kiley, father of publican Angus, for getting our online portal sorted again.  Terrific bloke, is Peter.

And so, round 1, what the heck?!  After the Tigers got it done comfortably on Thursday night, the rest of the opening round served to remind us that there is no such thing as form this time of year and that cramping remains an issue post pre-season.  It will be annoying if Brisbane and Freo are actually good this year, but hey, good on ‘em.  Port looked strong…confident, even.  Crows looked ordinary, highlighted by a bit of ‘can’t get it out of the back half due to chronic indecision’.  Saints looked INCREDIBLE (at times)…it’s really great to win in round 1 and still not be in the 8.  Classic us.

Given the upsets, anything over a 4 this week was solid tipping, I think.  No pints, but well played to the 7 of you to come out with a 6.  Shout out to Christie Anthoney from the gorgeous Alberton café ‘The Pear’, first time tipper, debuting with a solid 6.  Landlord Adam Freeman also snagging a 6…Rosie Wesson debuting with a 4, currently beating husband and fellow publican Stewart by 1.  There will many little battles unfurl over the coming weeks (Rowan & Dave, the Dohnt sisters, etc.).  It’s on, people…

Order in chef: Falafel & Hummus, Tabbouleh, Garlic Tahini, Pickled Grapes.  YUM.

Have a great week everyone,

Cheers, Crispian.

Hello there, wonderful tippers of the Port Admiral Hotel

It is done.

Thank you all so much for participating in what was a fun and fascinating season of tipping of our great game.  We raised just on $3000 for the 3 chosen charities, split evenly: Womens Safety Services SA, Beyond Blue and ‘Ladder’, St Vincent Street.  This is quite special and something we’ll look to enhance in the years ahead.  Do stay tuned; next year we’ll ramp it all up, get more prizes happening and have a little party reveal at the end of it all.

And so.  The winner of The inaugural Port Admiral Hotel footy tipping competition for 2018 is Josh Dinning, also known as DAWIZARD!.  Mate, you take home the $500 Port Admiral Hotel voucher, plus merch, beer and the Port Local Sherrin.  Seriously well done, a very good effort considering the heat was on in the last month in particular.  Tipping a 9 this week also helped immensely!

All other winners (countback system has been applied!):

2nd prize, the Yalumba prize pack: Ben Rusanoff

3rd prize, the Pirate Life prize pack: Gator

4th prize, the Johnnie Walker prize pack: Drew Akin

10th prize, $50 Low & Slow voucher: Daniel Kiley

40th prize, 1 bottle Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache: Kat Travis

Please claim all prizes via me, at the pub.

I think it’s the Tigers and the Pies for the Granny, with the Hawks my evil darkhorse.  I’m taking Mitchell & Oliver for the first tied Brownlow in a while.  I’ll have Josh Caddy for the Norm in the back to back.

Chef: Thanks for everything.  The new menu is BANGING.

Have a great summer everyone.

Cheers, Crispian.

 Port Admiral Footy Tips - Round 22 results

Port Admiral Footy Tips
Results for Port Admiral Footy Tips Round - 22

Hello there, great tippers of the Port,

In this penultimate week of tipping, I have a touch of the melancholy…what a year it has been.  We are into our 10th month of operating the hotel after a long time closed…so many lost football seasons in those closed years of The Port Admiral Hotel.  What were we all doing?  I was tipping at the Wheatsheaf Hotel, Thebarton, one of the great pubs of South Australia.  Driving around in a black Volkswagon Golf littered with wine cartons and shedded Viszla hair, selling wine and beer all week, spending countless hours eating Laksa at the Central Market and convincing myself I was ‘quite busy’.  The Friday afternoon 2 - 3 pints to put the tips in were truly coveted, not to be missed.  I drove that Golf to 3 Grand Finals in 12 months.  Got a parking ticket on Little Collins on the eve of the draw.  $20 on Lenny to win the Norm covered it though.  Yep, thanks.

So, we have a 3 WAY TIE AT THE TOP WITH ONE WEEK TO GO!!!  Not to mention young Ben Rusanoff who, with a small miracle, could still get on up.

Some things I’m doing this week, ahead of the great reveal:

- Ben Reid, I’ll chase up your missing score from round 14, this may well put you in contention.

- I’ll be doing a countback of most 9’s, 8’s, 7’s and so on to decide the order of winners and prizes.  Quite simply, if there is a tie, the most best scores wins.

- Getting quite emotional about the end of it all.

In summary, I love you all and may the best tipper win.  And Go Saints.

Chef: I’m going to need to see some of these new menu items…NEW MENU TOMORROW!

Have a great week everyone.

Cheers, Crispian.
