Score from turnovers

Recommended Posts

Evening...or morning... Haven't posted here for years. Congrats to the boys for continuing their form from last week. They really deserved that and very happy for Jack Watts, hopefully on Queens birthday he can kick 6 and we can win by ten goals!

 

The point of the post is that I was just wondering if there is any way to see the score from turnovers last week. I was watching the replay and said to a friend I thought it was in the vicinity of 60+ but looking at afl.com.au and the footylive iOS app that stat wasn't there. The tv coverage trots it out every now and then so I know it is recorded. 

 

Just wondering if anyone knows a better site where we can get such stats or if not what the number was.

 

Back it it up next week boys and keep the pressure on and the great positioning in the opponents half and we will score plenty again from the turnover ball!

 

Thanks-there may finally be some rain on the Dusty Hill

Keen to see a scores for and against from turn over stat for us, game by game and total season. Comparing it against the rest of the Comp and really interested to see stats of this year compared to last year across the Como. Ie have the rule changes, players fatiguing late in qtr/half/end of games causing more scoring due to turn overs.

Meh sort of but needs me flesh to it.

From the article. So we concede almost 10 goals a game, the 8th most number of points per game, from turn overs and we turn the ball over 26 times a game (105 so far) the 6th worst. We play Tiges and Saints next. Tigs 3rd worst in points conceded at 70 points per game and turn it over just ahead of us. Saints 2nd worst with 73 points per game and 3rd worst for turning it over. Cats the least points from turn overs at 33 points per game but give it away a little bit, 88 times so far. Interesting Brissy turn it over the least at 74 times YTD but are last in points conceded from those turn overs at 74 points per game.

Viney, who gets the ball more than anyone on our team (108 disposals season to date 25th in Comp, Jones next with 103 which is 38th in comp, Tyson next best with 84)

Melbourne

Melbourne is taking more risks with the football, with the Demons focusing heavily on producing fluent ball movement in 2016. Led by senior assistant Simon Goodwin and game analyst and education coordinator Craig Jennings, the Demons worked diligently during the pre-season to create a more attacking game plan that would lead to improved scores. Shifting Christian Salem and Bernie Vince to half-back was also a planned move to ensure the Demons have better distribution of the football from defence. - Ben Guthrie

Points conceded from turnovers in 2016: 58.8 a game (ranked 11th)
Giveaways (turnovers from an error): 105 (ranked 13th)
Most turnovers this season: Jack Viney (24)
Most points conceded from turnovers: Jack Viney (26)

Yes Viney has the propensity to turn it over but I am grateful he is actually getting the pill, its easy to have small turnover stats when you only get 10 possessions a game, but he is getting heaps of the footy so his turnovers will be higher. Nothing that can't be polished out of him when the season progresses

It is interesting.

I thought we helped Collingwood's cause - they scored a fair few goals through our turnovers and errors.

Then I relooked at the replay and it confirmed this - however the same could be said for Collingwood - they gifted us goals due to their turnovers.

Then I read the Monday paper and like every other week - the most scoring by all sides is caused by turnovers and the reason in simple.

The minute a team gets the ball, players leave their man and spread hard ( or at least should !) - if you turn the ball over  - miss a target - you are dead  - mark it down as a goal.

Games are now decided on who is most efficient by foot or hand.

Nut they have been decided by that for a number of season snow ie the Hawks left footer model but all of the hawks players are above average by foot (I'm sure there will be some small outliers).

As I said earlier interested to see how this year correlates to last year or last couple of years as a comparison.

The Hawks left foot model to me is a myth - being a left footer doesn't automatically equate to good disposal. The Hawks "got to be able to dispose accurately by hand and foot" model is what has won them flags - simply they don't turn the ball over -  and when they do  - that's when the look vulnerable like every other team.

I also think the game style and how hard they work helps, look at the doggies now, most of their players aren't that skillful but it's easy when you know where a bloke is going to be and he's running into space, it makes them look slick, even our ball movement at times on the weekend looked fantastic.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
