My 3 word player analysis V Carlton



Recommended Posts

Gawn - last quarter influence 

May - back to best

Lever - steady all game

Langdon - running game returned

Petracca - only elite player

Brayshaw - horrible until last

van Rooyen - cause for excitement 

Chandler - had minimal impact

Spargo - some minor involvement 

Pickett - continued poor season

McVee - classy and cool

Rivers - brave and aggressive 

Salem - great first half

Tomlinson - hiding to nothing 

Grundy - had little influence 

Smith - quiet but encouraging 

Viney - better second half

Sparrow - some tough plays

Bowey - great until concussed

Neal-Bullen - little involvement again

Harmes - fumbled too often

Fritsch - important in bursts 

Hunter - had important touches

Our medium defenders - salem, rivers, bowey and mcvee - were brilliant as a group. Huge impact ball in hand and didn't concede goals.

joeboy, if Mark Twain could be invoked given ‘there are lies, damm lies and statistics’. We have taken the liberty of getting the Hoover out of the Demonland broom closet and run a fact check over some of your 3 word summations.

 Brayshaw - horrible until last

Chandler - had minimal impact

Neal Bullen - little involvement again

Pickett - continued poor season 

Spargo - some minor involvement

 

Total tackles by team 54

Contribution by the ‘quintet’ 20

etc

Statistically the contribution by the quintet would be significant. On %’s alone.

% of  team tackles 37%

i50 18%

Round off contested possessions 15%
 
Not claiming a sophisticated analysis but remove the quintets’ contributions we struggle to win. Of course plenty of room for improvement as with most of the team’s performance.

Has there ever been a Melbourne game win or lose where we werent mediocre ? FMD  Amazed no-one mentioned on this thread that all pies players rate 6/6.

I was at a Dee's game against the Swans...Bails vs Roos where everyone in red and Blue were better than excellent

    NEW CHAPTER by Meggs

    There was no setting sun to ruin the spectacle this week, just the rising moon over the brand-new empty GMHBA Stadium in Moorabool Street. It was a perfect evening for footy on a pristine surface with an enthusiastic crowd building.    Children dressed in Demon colours formed a Guard of Honour as the reigning premiers ran through the raised Demon banner declaring: MELBOURNE & GEELONG, A NEW CHAPTER IN THE OLDEST RIVALRY.     The strong travelling group of Demons

    BATTLE OF MORDOR by Meggs

    Shadows form over Middle-Earth as the two oldest football clubs in the land Melbourne and Geelong take battle for the very first time for 4-points, down at Kardinia Park (aka Mordor). If you dare, come venture down the highway and support our talented team. Melbourne’s Season Eight form line is 4 zip and we’ve been playing some scintillating footy.  The fanbase is growing.   It needs to be said that our opponents so far have hardly been top shelf: Collingwood sits 12th on the

    SISTER ACT by Meggs

    In the twilight at Frankston Oval, for the first ever match between Melbourne and Hawthorn, the Demons were clinical winning by 59 points and remain undefeated in Season Eight.   The Melbourne team ran out to a wonderful #DeeArmy banner paying tribute to Ron Barassi, ‘a football legend, the greatest Demon’.     So true!   Meggs was super excited to see Irish recruit Aimee Mackin playing her first game.  Aimee quickly showed us that she belongs out there with composure, ga

    ON SONG by Meggs

    Meggs asks is it time to heave ho the melodies and words of yesteryear and update Club theme songs with some Australian composers and singers?     What prompted this reflection was the discovery that this week’s combatants’ themes were written by the same early 20th century American composer, George M. Cohan.     Cohan’s melodies The Yankee Doodle Boy and You’re a Grand Old Flag have been used by Hawthorn since 1956 and Melbourne since 1912.   Even earlier, the clu

    RUN UNBEATEN by Meggs

    The Demons withstood a spirited challenge from the Western Bulldogs in the 10th anniversary of the Hampson-Hardeman Cup to run away with it in the last quarter and take their unbeaten run to 12 wins on the trot, an AFLW record.   The Doggies were tenacious and their losing score of 6.5.41 was the highest score against Melbourne since their last loss against Brisbane in Round 4 on 18 September 2022.   With the sad passing of AFL football legend Ronald Dale Barassi, champion player

    LEARNINGS OR BURNINGS by GOTO

    Well, the 2023 season is over for the Demons after a two point loss to the Blues in the First Semi Final. All season WE have been hearing about the “learnings” that the team needed to make after each loss, but how much have we actually learnt when they:   1. Lost four successive finals at our own home ground;   2. Fell in five of their last six losses despite having more shots at goal and in the sixth, they had an equal number of shots;   3. Lost seven games by under two
