  1. Round 10 (+13) = 905 - 134 Matches Played P Cripps = 1000 Clearances - 144 Matches Played =95 / 10 = 9.5 per match to equal.
  2. With all the pontification about a 100 point drubbing - forgetting Naarm are playing an AFL side - has anyone thrown their play station controller and rage quit yet?
  3. I think there is a specific thread for this sort of comment 😍
  4. Beauty is in the eye... Imagine having him AND Ben Brown... that would be amazing.
  5. That'll help my 6yo be awake enough to watch another GF win
  6. I love how Naarm is absolutely ubiquitous at the moment. Presenters on Fox Footy using 'Naarm Demons' instead of phrasing 'Melbourne Demons', the AFL having Naarm on its ladder, and Naarm Demons logo as a portal to our website. Does this show the cache of Melbourne/Naarm now as a force within the AFL community that all media parties have got on board? Personally, I wouldn't be adverse for the name to be maintained... Change can be hard... sometimes it can be absolutely joyous and meaningful at the same time.
  7. Round 9 (+7) = 892 - 133 Matches Played P Cripps = 1000 Clearances - 144 Matches Played =108 / 11 = 9.81 per match to equal. drifting slightly...
  8. These stats are supplied by old mate @WheeloRatings - thanks, we're often bereft of data when trying to make sense of what we observe.

Now I aint a maths boffin, so happy for some guidance or other interpretations - but this makes me quite excited that against the expected average, 9 rounds in - we are 8 shots on goal better than the average opposition. I can't quite recall the shots on goal vs point % - but I suspect it's around 50% - so 4goals 4 equates to a 28 point margin. Hello, that looks familiar - it's a 4-5 goal win...

  9. Wonder if Brayshaw is out looking at property in Peppermint Grove this morning...🤷‍♂️
  10. Such an accurate comment: re the expectations of supporters *Sigh*... each and every week, there will be elements of the game that are not executed perfectly. Each and every week the FD and athletes are refining processes... as well as.... updated processes relevant to the opposition. Our game is based on defence first, and as a consequence not exposing ourselves if we turn it over. Some wag on here suggested we are not being offensive enough... for me at least, perhaps that needs to be refined as a metric beyond measuring how many goals you kick compared to the opposition. We ostensibly tripled their scoring shots. That's fantastic. That's elite. Only the Western Bulldogs vs Collingwood matched us with that. Not Brisbane, and certainly not Freo. That's a theme that has played out throughout the first 9 rounds. We've done it a few times. Brisbane did have one week of 41 scoring shots vs the 12 to the Kangaroos.
  11. @WheeloRatings - could you tell us what herbs and spices make up your attack and defence metrics? Cheerio.
  12. Can't get over the expectation levels on the game day thread...
  13. just quietly... a marginal error.
  14. just updated it 🤷‍♂️ - their lowest score "lowest score watch (tm)" is 41. 😍
  15. 7 scoring shots in 2.5 quarters of football. [censored] elite. even if it is against the Manangatang thirds....
  16. I'd be really satisfied with 30 scoring shots to 10
  17. Too much to ask for a GC, GWS, Melbourne Trifecta?
