% is points for / points against x 100
In order to increase percentage we would need to win by a greater amount than our current %. 
Any other result will result in a decrease in %

The longer the season goes on, though, the less impact an individual game will have on % though the principle remains the same.

 

We've come a long way since the days when after an 8 goal loss our percentage went up - Dees 💪

It is true. Some people do not understand percentage.

Sitting in the stand today, you could tell in the first couple of minutes that we were off. Unsure around the ball and not running hard enough to cut off their outlet kicks.. We were lucky to only be 4 goals down at half time. The extra handball we kept giving was poor, and mixing it up in the midfield didn't stop us getting flogged in the middle.

After half time, our running improved and our skills improved. North did drop off though, and we can't play like that against top 8 teams.. Kozzie live is amazing, and Fritta with his tail up is almost as good.

I never watch us live on TV, and today wasn't enjoyable up until the last 5 minutes when I was confident we weren't going to throw it away.. nice to win at Bellerive, sick of losing there by under a kick..

I agree with you 73% of the time.

67% of people don't understand percentage.

Can someone explain why we went down in percentage on the ladder??

Our % is 150%.

Therefore to keep at the level we need to beat a team by at least 50% of their score.

Today we beat roos by 30 points and they scored 73 points , so winning margin was 41% of the roos score, less than 50%, thus the overall % dipped below starting number of 150%.

Had we won by 50% of 73, which is approx 37 points then % would have stayed the same.

I think that game shows more than anything else just how poor north actually is. That we were able pretty much to not turn up til after half time and only be 3 goals down, and still win by 5 goals. 
past years we would’ve folded in that situation too.

Yes i am aware of that. But the more games played, the higher the differential must be to keep a high %

Incorrect.  Its all to do with each weeks winning margin and its % relationship to the losers  (the other teams) score in points.

It's very much like the agonists amongst us, and the Filth's supporters who collectively know five-eights of two-fifteenths of far call.

This post is hilarious, especially when you consider a later post saying how few people understand percentage.

 

Champagne (even if unintended) comedy.

Rab - this is what good teams do... play like $hite and then go on to win... it's a [censored] weird feeling eh.

You're right of course EO. It really gives you perspective. I'm now thinking of all the horrible five goal wins Hawthorn fans have had to endure in recent years. Thanks, I feel better already.

I understand he is a very very good user of the footy, but he’s also selfish and lazy.

There is a lot of talk about Melksham.  Separately there is a lot of talk about playing one’s role...

Everyone is in the team to play their role. Melksham’s role is delivery to a player who can kick a goal or kick goals himself. Yes, it would be better if he tackled more ferociously. But that is not his primary role.

Drop him for not finding a target or kicking goals? Sure, that makes sense. But dropping Melksham for not tackling well or often enough would be like dropping Frisch for not taking intercept marks.

The percentage is accumulative, over the home and away season.

Points for divided by points against. (Multiplied by 100)

Number of games won or lost is irrelevant.

T-Mac defended reasonably well today but fear his inability to quickly get ball to boot* just won't work down there long term against strong sides.

My MFCSS's were reactivated there today but we're far more composed - I just need more time.

*Interchange with boot to ball if required

The first person who suggests I am talking about 1/12th wins the daily prize.So if you round that to 3 decimal places, as a percentage it roughly equates to 9.167%.

Never mind %, 100% winning record is better.

That took a while...but remains irrelevant... but we all agree; well, at least 90% of us might.

I haven’t been one attacking Melksham (nor have I defended him), but IMV if players do not wholeheartedly tackle, they should be dropped

I wonder how much Tomlinson's injury had on the mental state of the rest of the team.  Would be pretty depressing all round.  Of course nothing compared to himself.

I think this definitely had to factor in. We are all human after all. Was saying to a mate that Tomo needed to compose himself or remove himself away from the team as seeing him in distress ( which is absolutely ok) effected the teams focus.

Disagree. Tackling and pressure acts are a non negotiable for everyone in the team according to Goodwin. 
Being a high half forward who doesn’t kick many goals, means defensive pressure is even more important. 
I wouldn’t drop Melksham because he isn’t winning clearances, but putting pressure on and tackling is really just a stock standard request for someone in his role.

His natural distress was an indication of his sincerity towards the Club and his teammates. In response, the Team won the game in his honour.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
