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.

Oliver 85% CBA attendances (R 1-4) (-5% on 2022 numbers)
Trac 66% (-9%)
Viney 65% (-10%)

Can't expect them to attend many more I wouldn't have thought..

 

Oliver yes.  Not sure about the other two Adonski.  I'd like to see the CBA of this season (averages) so far vs that of the 2021 season averages. 

However, 9% & 10% drop off for Tracc and Viney is substantial IMV (vs 2022).  Nearly 20% drop off between them.

My theory is....its the combination of the CBA plus how many extras  you are rolling through there.... and how far the quality of those extra drops away IF you end up rolling one (or maybe more) too many for the sake of looking for extra assists.

Quality is fine but if that quality drops away too far and add to that the CBA of say Tracc & Viney dropping off significantly, then that might impact on their form (CB form/effectiveness i mean).  Emphasis on might.

The absence of Max is also a major factor of course.  Lack of continuity (with the main crew) and also his own clearances are no doubt hurting us at times.

2021
Oliver 87%
Trac 79% 
Viney 71% 

I don't think they're meaningful enough differences

We need guys like Rivers & Pickett in there as a point of difference (and for development)

Jordon is serviceable as a defensive mid, too

I don't like seeing Sparrow & ANB in there though, they're ineffectual

Thanks mate....

So Viney is marginal vs 2021 but substantial vs last season (IMO).

Tracc's abscence is substantial vs 2022 & slightly more so vs 2021

I disagree re rivers being a point of diff.  If he shows he is capable sure.  But i've yet to witness it.  There's no point having a "point of difference" if he's a much weaker "point of diff".  All you're doing is giving the oppo a bit of a break every time he spends a fair chunk of time there.

Kozzy's still learning but as an outside option and/or pick pocket with silky skills he is showing something on occasions.  Unfortunately today wasn't one of those occasions but worth persevering with (in very small doses) IMV.

I'd be seriously considering sending Gus back in there rather than say Rivers or Sparrow.  Speaking of Gus, any CBA stats on him for this season + 2022 & 2021 by any chance pls?

Wondering if it's worth giving Dunstan a bit of time through the middle as a filler for Viney when he's on the bench (in place of Sparrow)??

I think we learnt that last year isn’t a sustainable model. Not giving our 2nd tier and junior mids more time in CBA last year has stagnated their development - perhaps they are now playing catch-up. I think they will definitely be the better for it as the season progresses and the teams that roll lesser numbers through will likely tire as we have done previously. Well that is the hope anyway.

Round 5, 2023 Adelaide Oval - Bombers vs Demons
 

There's so much that could be said about today but hey... it's super easy from here to say a whole lot of stuff.  Alot tougher to do than to say.

Bottom line though, we seem to be in a wee bit of doggy doo.  Hopefully Goody & the boys can scrape the [censored] off our boots and quickly!

He might also want to hand out some Grippo to each of the boys.  Talk about a case of the fumbles in slippery or wet conditions.  That happens to a number of players at times of course, but it seems to be very contagious for so many at the moment.

2 bog ordinary performances out of 5 ....alarm bells should now be ringing at a decent SPL.  If they aren't then we can kiss any chance of a prelim in 2023 goodbye!  That was too easy for that mob today, way too easy.

Clarry & Tracc the only two players to crack the 4.0 plus rating which is roughly the area you need at least 6 or more players to be to have a good chance of winning IMV.  Too much left to way too few (again!!).

Team rating this week  a massive 13.5% off Season 2022's rating (68.89)

DD those numbers really bare out what we witnessed last night apart from Tracc and Clarry we were pretty ordinary across the board.TMac and Spargs before being concussed were both poor whereas the stats make Tommo and Bowey appear better than they were. Melk started ok but can’t play out a game.

Tommo near the top of the table?  Man, that really says something about our day… 8th best according to stats.  Huge negative impact on the match. Those numbers are awful across the board.

I would say the ratings for Bowey & Tommo were influenced a fair bit by intercepts and rebounds.  Some of it made up from effective disposals also.  But when you watch effective disposals from the AFL highlights package on individual players, some of these are not all that effective IMO.  Some of them just end up somewhere up the field to a 50/50 contest that doesn't always favour the team at all.

Aside from that the actual impact of what they brought on the day wasn't the greatest from what i witnessed as well.  I had both of them in my bottom rung of players on the day but they had a few mates!  Our defenders were under the pump quite a bit sadly.  Not many wins in many areas at all.

Weighted Average Ratings up to & including Rnd 5, 2023 vs H&A Season 2022

May a bit of a worry vs his season 2022 form.  Bowey, Gus & Viney also dropping away a little, albeit not quite as severe.

Haven't watched or seen the results from Casey yet (about to do watch now) but surely it's time to start putting more time into Laurie and/or Moniz (Moniz might be a bit further away) in order to bring them up to the speed & intensity of AFL as Melk's eventual replacement/s?  That's not to say Melk shouldn't be played where match ups / circumstances and form suggest.  However, it just feels to me like now is the time to start putting more time into alternatives from here.

What are the Power Rankings?
This is our attempt to rank every AFL club from best to worst. We take wins and losses into account, but also the quality of opposition faced and whether teams are likely to get healthier or improve going forward. It’s a little bit ‘who’s hot and who’s not’; part predictive, part analysis of what’s happened. If Team A is above Team B, we’d probably tip A to win if they were playing at a neutral venue this weekend.

Wheelo, any chance you can add time in forward half and total team metres gained to your brilliant stats?

@WheeloRatings

I'm looking at adding the overall team stats for individual matches to the Match Stats page, and this would include total team metres gained.  Although unfortunately I don't think I have access to the time in forward half stats. If I get it, I'll include it on the site.

That's great wheelo. .

I looked at the dees bombers game and it's got the key stats to get a sense of the game and a good layout to review the info quickly.

On time in forward half, combining inside 50 and metres gained differentials is a pretty good proxy I would have thought.

Bombers ahead, albeit by not a huge amount, in both AND contested ball. That's the game right there

The other stat it would be great to have is scores from turnovers.

Any chance that stat could be added (conscious it might be another Champion data stat that is not available)?

I found out that the time in forward half stats are published in the Herald Sun, so I have subscribed to that and I'll see if it's worth keeping the subscription. I have added time in forward half and pressure for last night below. Also, I am able to calculate the score sources from one of my datasets so I have included that information below.

    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.

    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.
