Kicking Efficiency Comparison - Rnd 9 vs Rnd 21

Note:  The AFL average is approx 68%.  Obviously defenders would have a higher average, mids lower etc.

So I read that a PhD student found that you don’t make the top 8 if you have more than 27 games lost from your top ten players in the regular season.  We are at 38.  There are very few exceptions (Richmond this year), but the correlation was incredibly high.  With a very average bottom 6 this year, we had nothing to prop us up.  

So for 2020, I suggest we need to refresh that bottom 6 significantly, and ensure we keep our top 10 players on the park.  Might help us a bit...

11 players down by more than 20%, and another two down by 19% on last year.  Look at the names: Viney, Brayshaw (Jones), Lewis, Hibbard, TMAc, ANB,Melksham,(Omac) Tim Smith, Garlett, Hannan, Spargo.  Last year their contributions got us to a prelim.  Take these 13 players (more than half a starting 22) and have 20% less value from them in a game where 5% matters, and is it any wonder we are down the toilet this year?  What a horrible reflection in the reality that was (is) 2019.

This year 11 players scored over 2.5, last year 17. This year 5 players scored greater than 3.0, last year it was 9 players.  Our top end was considerably weaker as well.

Frost, Hunt and Harmes hold your heads high and proud, only significant positive movers.

# Hit outs to advantage not accounted for

Tracc's best games for the year (statistically).  Big Maxy's equal best.  He put this same weighted score up on QB against Grundy!  Over 200 SC points in this game which i can't say i've seen anyone score, let alone a Demon.  To put that in some perspective he scored 99 SC points vs Grundy in Rnd 21, Grundy 86.  On QB Maxy scored 153 SC points, Grundy 84.  Big M has clearly taken the honors over Grundy both times this year.  That was some performance from the big guy today.

A quick summary...

Maxy - 18 Effectives @ 69.2%, 4 Contested Marks, 10 Clearances, 5 inside 50s, 12 Score Involvements, 5 Interceptions and 3 Goals.

Tracc - 22 Effectives @ 88%, 7 Clearances, 7 tackles and 10 Score Involvements.

Choco Williams Sais a year or two back on the radio, the coaches mantra of one soldier out another in, is what coaches have to say, but he basically called it out as total BS, replace 4-5 of your top 8 players with players 23-27 on your list and your stuffed! 

While we’ve underperformed with what we’ve had available, our injuries and poor off season add up to a bad year, maybe not 5-17, but irrecoverable from a good season perspective.

Bring on a great pre season, a fit list, good draw, better draft picks and s bit of luck and who knows what 2020 holds!

Observers keep saying Stretch is not up to it! Do these stats mean anything? 21 disposals this week at 95% effciency, yet he is said to be non AFL standard amongst a squad of players who routinely butcher the ball when they get it.

Stretch is interesting Earl.  Most of the other weighted score results (not always but mostly) tend to fit in somewhat with what i see on the day.  Is Stretch an outlier or maybe negative bias from myself / others?

In game (watching), i don't see him having much of an impact but might be the pre-determined bias on my part.  Maybe he's changing/improving (or has already improved) but from past experience (not this match) the impression he's given is that he's getting to a fair few balls but mostly dishing off to just about anyone, especially lateral, as his first go to.  Plenty of uncontested that's for sure and the delivery is no doubt first class but how much risk is involved in those disposals if they are going to players in non-damaging places and/or they're about to get pole axed shortly after receiving?  Does he take on the game in other ways that you would expect from a mostly 'outside' player?  Line breaking run?  Looking up field as first priority in traffic and taking the risk trying to get it to a loose player or to his favoured side with a 45 kick through traffic (better from a team's POV)?

Maybe i'm seeing things and right off the money and the stats are capturing the more accurate story of improvement.  Wouldn't be the first time.  And this is where stats are handy as it does make you question and review potential biases that might be ingrained.

Would need to watch the match again to see whether there's any validity in that impression from his match y'day.  Do i have the time or desire....ummm... nup.  Although an old Norf mate is coming over this arvo for a few frothies.  If he insists on watching the replay (lives OS and just visiting) then i might.

Maybe others would like to add something if they watched his game a little closer.

Season  2019 vs Season 2018

Here you go fellow minions.  The year that wasn't!  Only eight players either improved from last season or kept within 5% (not a major difference IMV)...

Frost the most improved and biggest gain up an amazing 25.7%.  The only others who clocked up a positive...Harmes, Hunt and Stretch.  Those within 5% ... Salem, Weid, Big M & JWags.

The overall team average score down 14.25% on season 2018!

The year was that bad that some improved their ranking on last year while still going backwards (statistically).   That does not necessarily equate to a poor or negative year in all cases as some may have been played out of position (eg., Fritschkreig) for the bulk of the season or asked to carry out a completely different role vs 2018.  ie., Less stats accumulated but still carrying out the role effectively from a team POV (run with / lock down / time spent in the ruck when not usually expected etc).

Nonetheless a bog ordinary year...Roll on 2020!

image.thumb.png.0f160dcb4a3471a19a24a0d6bafe4466.png

Note: If you add approx 0.80 for hit outs to advantage for big Maxy this would have him sitting in 2nd.

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    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
