Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

A dominant performance by the Dees v Brisbane.  Saw it live and really liked our ball movement. 

Most of the stats had the Lions even or ahead. But it’s deceiving because our ball movement and scoring/goal kicking was rewarding our play.  The forward line looked open and dangerous.  No packs, congested contest forward line footy.  
 

what I loved … 

Kicks 216

handballs 119 

yes we ran and kicked and hit targets. It was noticeable and great to see the little useless handballing to stationary players was virtually non existent.  The run was back.  

Some special mentions. Clarry. 18 kicks (12 handballs) metres gained 578 . Brayshaw(18k9hb) Hunt (15k3hb), May (16k4hb) and Fritsch (13k. Zero handballs ).  Trac also was kicking it more, and not always looking for the handball option. 
 

May our “football” continue into September.  Go Dees.

The kick/handball differential is of course heavily influenced by the pressure applied by opponents. Last night, Brisbane's pressure on the ball carrier was often low or non-existent. Compare the manic pressure applied by Collingwood two weeks ago. The run was back alright, but it's a lot easier to run when no one's chasing you. But it was a pleasure watching our boys hit targets time and time again as the Lions supporters around me became more and more frustrated with their team's woeful execution.

Hibberd didn’t make a mistake all night and shut out Charlie Cameron to zero goals (in two games).  That’s deserving of a “high rating” by my calculations.  

Yes the beauty is in the eye of the witness NS.  Stats are limited in their ability to reflect what actually takes place on the field.  Also these tables don't take into account pressure acts, bodying the opponent, reading the play better etc.

Pressure and turnovers, that's the golden mantra over the next month.

I would throw accuracy with goal kicking in there as well Layzie.

Last week it all clicked in this regard.  72% conversion, our second best result for the season, only topped in Rnd 5 vs the Giants (76%!).

It was our best efficiency inside 50 for the season though with a record 33.3% of our inside 50s on the night resulting in a goal.

Stats from Dees v Swans round 12 

Dees 348 possessions- 205 kicks 143 handballs 

Swans 305 possessions- 218 kicks 87 handballs 

Swans run and kick a lot more than other teams. Their ball movement needs to be slowed, shutdown or pressed. They want to run run run.

We won in the ruck where Max dominated hitouts but broke even in clearances  

Swans won in the pressure count and tackles (75-53)

Qualifying Final, 2022 MCG - Demons vs Swans

Melbourne Demons

Clarry Clarry Clarry oi oi oi!  Amazing rating here and one of his best in the red & the blue and his second best for the season.  Only bettered in Rnd 10 vs North with a 7.675  What a game and what a stunning result on such a big occasion.  A genuine champion!

Let's take a look...

24 effective disposals @ 82.8%, 3 one percenters, 8 clearances (Luke Parker the most on the night, just, with 9), 2 Rebounds, 4 inside 50s, 8 tackles (3 inside 50), 10 score involvements, 5 intercepts, 420 Meters gained, 2 goals and only 1 miserly turnover.

Steven May what can you say!  One of the great games by our champion FB on one of the games great forwards, Buddy Franklin.  Some of his highlights on the night... 18 effective disposals @ 78.3%, 5 contested marks (most on the night), 8 one percenters (note: McCartin had a massive 17!), 11 Rebounds (most on the might) and a massive 16 intercepts (most on the night with the next best Harmes on 8).

So looking at these results it was really too much left to to few with the top 5 player ratings being Clarry, May, Harmes, Petty & Sparrow.  Followed by a very good (genuine forward) rating from Fritta of 2.775 .... and, let's be honest, daylight the rest!

And what was that game from GUS!?  I can't recall a worse rating from him since i've been compiling.  Some of his lowlights included ... only 9 effectives @ 45% and a massive 11 turnovers!

But he wasn't alone here... combined between them, Max (7), Viney (9) and Gus (11) clocked up a massive and disastrous outcome on the night of 27 turnovers!   You won't win too many games, including H&A, with three of your best bringing such a  horror performance.

Obviously finals are played at a different level but our Team Rating was also significantly off.  Even if it was just by a smidgen, our worst result for the season and down on our season average rating by a massive 19.5%!  That's a statistical outlier sub-par performance from our boys and i have to wonder if gastro may have gotten hold of a number of players that we were unaware of and the club were just forced to soldier on??

I very much doubt we will beat the Lions if we produce anything close to last night next week.  It will be lights out for season 2022.  A massive turnaround ahead for this club on the track if we're to get up against the Lions and make a consecutive PF.

Yes i'll get there at some point DZ.  Very depressing going out like that.

I'll post this match's results vs H&A.

Then the combined finals averages vs season averages.  Plus combined finals averages vs 2021's finals averages.

One curious statistic on the weekend was the 16km differential between the total team distance run (Data curtesy of the Telstra Tracker - Swans 287.5km v Dees 271.6km.)

Despite the Dees having 3 of the top 4 runners on the night for every player on the field the Swans ran about 1km more than their opponent.

This is usual and as there were only a handful of games in the AFL this year which had a greater differential although of these examples, the team that ran less did not always lose.

Qualifying Final, 2022 MCG - Demons vs Swans

Match Day Rating vs H&A 2022 Season Ratings

Suspected something was seriously up after looking at the base data straight after this final a few weeks back.  But never suspected things were this bad vs season averages, with a few exceptions in the first 10 players or so.

Tracc's drop off explanatory but it's a massive drop.  If you're a numbers/analyst looking at that you would be putting the info to the coach's/FD and highlighting surely for the next match against the Lions and asking some massive questions of physios/docs/player.

As to what went wrong, who knows.  Only those inside the inner sanctum or very close to someone with inside intel might have some idea.  Whatever the main reason/s, things sure went belly up once we hit finals.

I understand the second week a little more in the sense more players would've been banged up eg; Tracc playing injured, Clarry's head knock.  But we had the bye like everyone else leading into this one.  Gastro / illness issue?  That might account for Hibberd's drop off but didn't hear of others catching it?  Many players spent well before finals and too much spent too early in the first 10 rounds, nothing left in the tank in the 2nd half (might explain our last quarter fade outs somewhat)?  Pressure from the Swans off the charts, a number of players couldn't handle it?  Who knows.

Have highlighted Clarry in blue as that is one hell of a performance in a final.  Others that did very well statistically vs their season averages included May (superb result given his opponent), Harmes, Petty (outstanding), Sparrow, Fritta (29% above his 2021 season average and 7.5% above last year's final's average!), Spargo & Hunt.  With ANB thereabouts.

As mentioned previously above, the Team Rating was a massive 19% off the season's average Team Rating.

Have to say i'm astounded that this appeared not to set any alarm bells off inside the FD and/or with SG!  In the sense that we stuck with exactly the same line up, and much of that line up (statistically) was obviously (if you had the time to dissect) in a world of trouble.  There's absolutely no way you are coming back from being off your season averages by around 30% - 40% (or greater) the following week.  Certainly not within a week anyway and not enough to probably bring a level of effectiveness in the role you're expected to play, especially in the pressure cooker of a final.  Had we made the Prelim...might have been a different matter.

Note:  A red 2022 H&A Ranking indicates that player did not hit his seasonal ranking in this Final.  Some players might be higher than their seasonal ranking just by being picked.  That is a player ranked 28th for example might end up being ranked 22 in this game by the mere fact that he was picked in the team.  In other words the rankings need to be considered in context.  Hope that makes sense.

Thank you DD for all your hard work, those stats really reinforce what we have all been trying to come to grips with but quite clearly the stats spell it out for all to see and yes Petty, May, Harmes, Clarry, Langdon, Hibbo and ANB came to the party. It also shows that a number of our best players were well down on form And we still only lost by 13 points. Just shows how important it is to play your Best Fit players but also shows get the boys back to full health and fitness and we can be right in it in 2023.

MVP 2022 Finals

Thanks DZ.  We weren't that far off as you say.  However, these stats suggest we played a couple of our worst games for the season unfortunately.  Almost feels like another Prelim 2018 for mine given we came into the finals with the second chance and a top two finish.

Anyway on to DD's MVP of the finals award! :lol:  And no surprises as to who got the chocolates!  Imagine if he didn't go into the Semi banged up and coming off the broken thumb issue.

May & Harmes deserve some kudos as well.  Petty not far behind in 4th.

Pretty much daylight the rest really...

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.

How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
