Not with our coach’s sclerotic inability to alter our game plan.I'm just hesitant to write Sydney off, afterall they've only missed finals once in the past 16 seasons.
Even if they miss finals this year I can see them bounce back next year.
It's a shame Horse hasn't adapted as I've always rated him as a coach.Not with our coach’s sclerotic inability to alter our game plan.
The game’s moved on but Horse can’t, or won’t, adapt.
Mystifying but becoming more clear with every passing week.
Yep.It's a shame Horse hasn't adapted as I've always rated him as a coach.
I see him and Chris Scott as being very similar in many ways.
Except Chris Scott has finally changed things up this year instead of going with the tried old gameplan from previous years.
I had hopes coming into the season that Horse would do the same as what Scott has but sadly he hasn't.
Port were at their peak during that period. I can’t say that about any of the above sides.you can Rule out Sydney, Carlton, North Melbourne, Essendon and Melbourne then.
I swear your mob went 0-2 and ended up 18-4 in 2002 or 2003.
There's no real inflection point. On average it just gets steadily more accurate one round at a time.When does the ladder ‘set’
Wouldn’t be surprised if it’s after round 3
Squiggsy thinks all 5 0-2 teams will fill the bottom 7 on the ladder - yet more proof a HUGE amount of information can be taken from the fact a team has started 0-2.There's no real inflection point. On average it just gets steadily more accurate one round at a time.
It gets accurate faster earlier, though. That is, you learn more about most teams in the first 2 rounds than you do in the next 2 after that.
By about halfway through the season, most of the effects of fixture bias have been shaken out, so at that point the ladder is a very good estimate of the final ladder, roughly on par with the accuracy you'd get from computer modeling or human prediction. The ladder will still change, of course, but due to unpredictable things, like fluctuations in form or injury, and not just teams having a run of especially tough or soft games.
Yeah, it's sort of immediately throwing everything away since it's not working. Now reshuffling options or throwing a bunch of kids in the deep end can work but it's best to take stock at the end of the year and decide what needs to be done.This sounds like a blueprint for building a carlton / melbourne
Pretty sure they went 0-18 somewhere between 2000-2002. I've said it before, I'll likely say it again; having Fremantle as your cross town rival is the gift that keeps on giving.my memory is not so good anymore.
I reckon you may be right.
There were many Owen meme's if i recall.
I call bull**** I have seen your 1st half of Essendon games. No chance Essendon will go 0-11. you have 4 winnable games.i looked.
0-2 becomes 1-8 into the bye.
Go look at the bombers draw. They wont be 0-11. They have Brisbane, North, Freo and Carlton all in Melbourne.Who are you beating?
The winnable games you have got are
Yep we were 0-10 in 2016. Still bitter about it to this day.Didn't Fremantle Start 0-10 a few years ago?
0-17 in 2001. Still.... That was a fluke as Freo should of won 3-4 of those close games ithe 1st half of that season.Pretty sure they went 0-18 somewhere between 2000-2002. I've said it before, I'll likely say it again; having Fremantle as your cross town rival is the gift that keeps on giving.
A few years out of 25 does not a powerhouse club make. Neither does finishing in the top 8 only 7 out of your 24 seasons.Gift that keeps on Giving? Far from it.
Freo were far from garbage from 2010-15.
I looked at freos 2001 results. Freo scored 1794 points which was 81.5 points a game. Conceded 2491 points or 113 points a game.A few years out of 25 does not a powerhouse club make. Neither does finishing in the top 8 only 7 out of your 24 seasons.
Anyway, surprised by your % in 2001- 72.02%! I would guess that's easily the best a 2-20 team has ever went.
