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.

This crisis will cut hard and deep but one day it will be over.

What will be left? What do you want to be left?

I know what I want to see: I want to see a thriving, independent and robust Australian-owned news media. I want to see governments, authorities and those with power held to account. I want to see the media held to account too.
