That is correct LD ...our performance up forward has been diabolical so far and a player who dishes off with reasonable quality can't be expected to complete the good work further up the field.

I would like to see this same comparison if we were managing to hit the side of a barn door more often with shots at goal.

Better would be chains to inside 50.

That article and Healy's explanation is just mash buck.  What constitutes a valid chain?  Where does it start and finish?  Does a scoring chain include both points and goals?  Assuming it includes points, does it also include rushed junk from spoils? Etc.

Clarry needs to clean up much of his work for sure but we can see that by observing.  Not sure if this is very revealing at all tbh.

Keep in mind that defenders generally have higher kicking efficiency than forwards. I suspect that's because they are kicking to more options as the ground ahead of them is wider. Forwards, on the other hand, have a narrowing ground and ultimately are penalised if they score a behind rather than a goal, even if the shot at goal is a snap under pressure or from the boundary line.

Round 10, 2019  Demons vs Giants (MCG)

Pure Stats Predictor has the Giants winning by 65 points

Team weighted score from last round (including adjustment for Ins/Outs this round)

Demons  57.15     Giants  85.48

Top 6 ranked players (weighted statistical composite) last round

Aggregate:           8.03                                                     12.78

*Omitted for this match

Tip:  Use landscape mode if viewing from a mobile.

One of the biggest weighted team scores, top 6 and bottom 6 aggregate scores i've ever seen since compiling these over the last 3 years.  However, we know these figures are coming from a very one sided match against the lowly Blues.

What do we take from that?  Very hard to say but but what we can say is the last time we were coming in against a team coming off a match against the Blues the predictor had us losing by 22 points vs the Swans in Rnd 4.  We ended up winning away at the SCG by 26.  So lets say the predictor is off by the aggregate because of a very poor Blues outlier last week and we are 48 points the better (maximum optimism statistically!), we are effectively still down by 17 points.

So, not as bad as the above but suggests a loss is still (statistically) likely.  But as we know this is all historical and merely a snapshot in time.  And football matches are not won and lost on historical data.  It's 22 v 22 so we live in hope that we can bring home the bacon.  1 point ahead at the right time and our season's still alive!

Be interesting to compare them from the week before (exclude the blues game as an anomaly) and see how we compare up.

Good point buck!  If i had or find the time i might just do that.  I don't normally go back beyond the last week, as my aim is a crude  attempt to try and capture the opp's latest rough form (without spending hours on it doing last three round averages or whatever) but in this instance that seems a better alternative.

Round 10, 2019  Demons vs Giants (MCG) - Version B

Pure Stats Predictor has the Giants winning by 4 points

Team weighted score from our last round and the Giant's previous round vs the Hawks

(including adjustment for Ins/Outs this round)

Demons  57.15     Giants  58.96

Following Buck's suggestion i have used the Giant's stats from their match two weeks ago against the Hawks at the G.  The Hawks being a team playing competitively at AFL level vs the Blues from last week (in the first predictor above) who obviously aren't.

A massive turnaround and to be expected given how bad the Blues are at this point.  Strap yourselves in folks...this one looks like it's going right down to the line...again!   COIN FLIP!

Thanks for running that, Rusty.  At 3 quarter time, version A was on the money.  We were nowhere good enough for version B, but it showed the influence of the blues game.

Np worth a one off fling Buck.  Unfortunately as you say, the first usual method was more robust at reflecting the difference in form of both teams coming in.

What i learned from method B is we aren't a very good possession team (vs the Hawks) and Goody isn't Clarkson.  And two weeks is a long time in footy let alone one!

Clarkson the master at finding ways to defeat a tricky opponent on odd days.  I'm not sure why Goody didn't at least try and utilise what Clarko revealed against the Giants.  Nor the Port match against the Eagles (dirty flat quick ball method coming inside 50).

We also lacked any sort of intensity required (defensively) that the Hawks probably brought at the ball carrier when they didn't have possession against the Giants.  Was as feeble a 2.5 quarters as I've seen since approx 2015.  We regressed badly in this regard, yet again.

Yes it might be time to update that given we're another 10 rounds in.  I doubt we would see any improvements and have probably regressed further in some areas Kent.

There's been a fitness conditioning 'off' smell about most of the group all year.  Something seems amiss other than just off season surgeries for those that had them.

So true.  It felt like we really regressed, and I bet our numbers will show this.  We were poor by hand and foot, struggled to take a contested mark, and showed no defensive system that connected to anything forward of the ball.   Complete turn around from the Eagles game. Without Max in the first half, and Viney willing himself to every contest in the second and third, we would have been smashed - worse than we were.  Nothing learned, nothing executed.

That is what disturbs me most of all. The same problems  displayed in every game.

The players are not learning anything nor are the coaches able to address and  impact the problems.

There is more to this perhaps than we are being told. Its incomprehensible that we haven't improved over the season. Anyway there is no longer an imperative  to win games  in my view. I would like to see them coached and play to a game plan that suits our talent and hopefully we are ready next season.

I  also wouldn't be bothered bringing anyone back too soon, just no point. Another wasted season Ho Humm.

Back to the standard method after an attempt at a variation (option B) last week failed abysmally.

Would have given us a very very slim chance this week IF we were to hold it together through the mid field and bring what we brought in the final quarter last week for most of this match as the Crows were less efficient last week than we were up forward.  If you can believe it! (see below)

However this optimism was quickly squashed as soon as i realised the likes of Spargo had been given another game, ahead of Pruess, and the bog ordinary Fritschkreig is more than likely to be played in a defensive role for some unbeknown reason ...again.  We are effectively two men short so forget everything i just said.  And no, not having a go at Spargo & Fritschkreig.  This has come about through poor recruiting catching up with us (lack of depth) and Goody's inability/refusal to recognise that the latter is not a defender's bootlace (at this point).  Shown some promise up forward though! :ph34r:  Actually make that almost three men down...i just recalled Garlett is still a shadow of his 2019 self and even that was just ok.

Please DO NOT run option B.  Simply not worth it.  I am hoping that the three inclusions have a big impact, and that Mr hyphen leading their points who played out of the box goes back to normal bog ordinary.  Might smooth things out a bit.  Charlie Spargo - Mr 1.45.  Rush him straight in.

Just a little spreadsheet i put together a few seasons back W4TA.  Allows me to look at a week in isolation against other teams from previous week's performance which i use for the Stats Predictor.

Also how the boys are tracking vs each other using composite averages over any designated block of rounds.

No harm in trying Buck but yeh won't be running that variation again.

The 3 ins are included in the above predictor using their average composites from this season and last year's season average for Hannan.  It's about as accurate as i can get it for this purpose.

Tip:  Use landscape mode if viewing from a mobile phone.

Last week's performance was statistically our best 'Team' game for the year and only 3.4% off our 2018 average weighted score (69.53)!  Obviously our inaccurate kicking for goal was the difference and the Crows were super accurate (70% conversion is off the charts) but that was it.

The Pies appear to be a fair way off their best footy earlier in the year and we are coming into some decent form with some very solid 'Ins'.  Spargo and Baker will need to lift on last week's performance if we are to win though IMO.  If they put in a similar or worse one then the Pies might get a little closer.  I'm not sure where Lockhart is at by i would much prefer to have him in ahead of Spargo who needs a long stint at Casey.

The only other thing stopping us at this point is accuracy in front of goals.  We at least lowered our vision more often last week.

Harmes to Pendles pls...and IF we can improve our accuracy up forward then everything is pointing to a happy ending prior to the bye.

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition

    AINT THAT A CRYING SHAME by The Oracle

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar
