The Pretenders (The Bottom Ten, Top 22 Disposals and Games Played)

North Melbourne: 7,450 Disposals from 429 Games.

Adelaide: 7,352 Disposals from 399 Games.

Port Adelaide: 7,523 Disposals from 425 Games.

Essendon: 7,357 Disposals from 401 Games.

Brisbane: 7,506 Disposals from 423 Games.

Western Bulldogs: 7,282 Disposals from 375 Games.

St Kilda: 7,185 Disposals from 372 Games.

Fremantle: 6,712 Disposals from 383 Games.

Carlton: 6,344 Disposals from 365 Games.

Gold Coast: 6,180 from 377 Games.

Ah Continuity you cold and heartless bitch, the optimum games available would be
22 x 22 = 484. It's amazing how many of the bottom ten teams actually become
top eight sides when you split the best 22 disposers into 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, and
16-22 it is very illuminating and shows the value of depth to a game plan. As
usual just bread crumbs on the trail just like Hansel and Gretel. The Bulldogs
Disposal Average is (19.42) the best of the bottom ten teams from their top 22
disposers, pity about the efficiency and goal kicking though.

Ordering the top eight sides (2015 to 2018)

2018:

Geelong: (5.66)
GWS: (6.00)
Richmond: (8.00)
Sydney: (10.66)
Hawthorn: (11.00)
West Coast: (11.33) Premiers.

2017:
Adelaide: (4.00)
GWS: (6.00)
Port Adelaide: (6.33)
Essendon: (8.00)
Sydney: (9.00)
West Coast: (9.33)

Sydney: (5.00)
Geelong: (6.00)
North Melbourne: (11.00)
West Coast: (11.00)
Hawthorn: (12.66)

2015:
Sydney: (5.00)
West Coast: (5.00)
Hawthorn: (6.00) Premiers.
Adelaide: (6.00)
Fremantle: (6.66)
Bulldogs: (8.00)
North Melbourne: (10.00)
Richmond: (10.66)

Maybe a look into the modern game where what have been regarded in the past to be important
statistics are now not as important as they once were and have been replaced by a statistical
dominance linked more to a specific game style. We did not finish seventh on the ladder in 2016
in every measurement, worthy premiers if you take the lowest number to be better which it is.

Ummmmm Yojimbo what do those numbers represent??? o_O
A simple extrapolation of three key statistics across four years that shows how in the last few years you can bottom
out in certain areas yet specialize in other areas to win the flag. There are always factors in sport that you can't
measure, but for us 2015 (8.00), 2016 (4.66), 2017 (9.33) and 2018 (10.66) seems to make a lot of sense as
do the figures for all the teams. I just don't show the formulas.

I figured there was a division by three involved from the numbers, but still don't know what they mean!
