The Crikey bunker is just 300 metres from the MCG so we feel obliged to offer the inaugural Crikey footy tipping comp.

Unlike the government-licenced Tipstars venture between Tattersalls and Eddie McGuire, we’re not aiming to rip you off.

In fact the competition is free for everyone but only Crikey members will be eligible for the array of weekly prizes.

The season kicks off this Friday night so click here to get on board.
