1st- Nev at 86.4%

2nd- Ocsar at 84.3%

3rd- Oliver at 81.9%

4th- Stretch at 80.7%

5th- Frost at 78%

 

 

Very interesting to see demons whipping boy 2nd, yes he handballs and chip kicks a lot but the % is still elite, he has 1 bad turnover which makes it seem like he's had 7. 

Frosty, what a gun.. Has improved his kicking and decision making.

TO be fair to posters ripping into him, handballing to a man who gets gang tackled is still an effective disposal.

This.

If he gives a quick handball to a marked player, (which he does too often) that counts toward this efficiency rating.

Meanwhile, the player who recieves the ball is immediately under enormous pressure which reflects poorly on him if he can't dispose of the ball effectively. 

They are both mind-bogglingly stupid threads. That is one of many examples of how ridiculous isolated stats can be.

Oscar's disposal efficiently may be elite, but the effectiveness of those disposals is often poor. And he is still very underdone physically.

Having said that, I see him being an important part of our backline for years to come. The coaching staff are doing a great job with him IMO, his progress can't be ignored.

Tall defenders and their disposal efficiency is one of the most irrelevant stats there is.  9 times out of 10 they are chipping backwards or across the ground under little to no pressure.  It's no surprise their efficiency is that good.  Their disposals rarely happen in the heat of battle like a midfielders would.

100% this. Full backs and defenders that switch the ball across the ground under no pressure have the highest disposal efficiency. I know I'd prefer the ball in the hands of Jordan Lewis than Oscar or Frosty if I wanted an effective kick going forward.

We all know DE stats are next to useless. Context is everything.

Having said that it's not his DE that's the knock. Its his physicality or lack of it, his decision making and his intensity that is the problem. He is like a rabbit in the headlights and has a turning circle worse than the Queen Mary. One on one he is a disaster which is why teams try to isolate him all the time.

Its a wonder he gets picked isn't it. How much do those coaches get paid?

For a player who gets so many possessions Oliver DE is awesome! 

No wonder he is leading or in the top 5 of so many media/coaches voting.

Any player in the AFL that handballs the ball 75% of the time would have high DE.

On Oscar, he kicks the ball OK just gets caught out of position to often and as soon as it is a contested ball one on one he is beaten, over time as his strength builds this should be less but his brother is also no good body on body

But he makes so many clangers!  He should be in the bottom 5 of voting.

I don't think I've ever seen Oscar kick the pill further than a 30m pass. The other thing he ever does is handball to a designated kicker.

Has he ever taken a risky long kick?

Yes. You just can't pick it up on the television due to the frame-rate.

We all know the DE stat can be misleading, but it's kind of incredible a guy who plays under the most heat on the ground is going at 81.9%. What a star.

This. The Mac brothers can't win here - TMac mercilessly pulled apart on DL for his turnovers (including by myself occasionally, I must add) and OMac still learning his craft on bigger bodies. The amount of posts I've read suggesting TMac should just handpass to Hibbo/Lewis for better quality disposals from D50 and focus on intercept marking.....

I was really pleased with OMac's efforts at the game on the weekend, he's really coming along which we need as a footy club if we're to be a serious premiership threat in the next couple of years. He is becoming much calmer with ball in hand, and not so much a deer in the headlights, which this stat seems to back up.

Using DE stats for defenders especially is a useless exercise. However using the eye test, O Mac is (or at least will be) a better kick than his brother. I think we're seeing as good as it's ever going to get with T Mac. I see more upside with O Mac in that facet of his game.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
