What goes into creating a rating & what is considered ‘good’?

I rate the top team 100, and the others are rated relative to that. The methematics of the ratings system is explained in part in this thread:
https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/team-ratings.1136878/

In that thread I posted the ratings in round 9, 2016. They were:


Round 9
Sydney Swans 135.8761
GWS Giants 129.5763
Geelong Cats 127.5612
Adelaide Crows 126.2597
West Coast Eagles 123.8679
Western Bulldogs 116.0758
Hawthorn 112.8825
North Melbourne 106.9513
Melbourne 88.85062
Port Adelaide 84.88779
Gold Coast Suns 73.90761
Collingwood 72.69306
Richmond 72.16456
Brisbane Lions 71.02502
Essendon 65.24481
St Kilda 64.22038
Fremantle 60.74817
Carlton 59.50057

The ladder at that time was:

NM 9 36 130.9
GE 9 28 152.0
GW 9 28 148.0
SY 9 28 144.2
WB 9 24 133.9
WC 9 24 129.6
HW 9 24 102.7
AD 9 20 118.4
ME 9 20 113.6
PA 9 16 100.5
CW 9 16 94.4
CA 9 16 76.7
SK 9 12 84.9
RI 9 12 81.6
GC 9 12 74.5
BL 9 4 62.1
ES 9 4 59.7
FR 9 0 68.4

You can see that the actual ladder was very different North Melbourne were undefeated, yet my ratings system had them just making the eight in eighth
position. It had carlton

The final ladder that season:

SY 22 68 151.2
GE 22 68 143.8
HW 22 68 118.6
GW 22 64 143.1
AD 22 64 138.3
WC 22 64 130.0
WB 22 60 115.4
NM 22 48 105.2
SK 22 48 95.7
PA 22 40 106.0
ME 22 40 97.6
CW 22 36 95.6
RI 22 32 79.5
CA 22 28 79.3
GC 22 24 78.2
FR 22 16 74.3
BL 22 12 61.6
ES 22 12 61.0

The algorithm recognised the teams NM had beaten were actually low in ability and that they weren't that good.

Hasn't worked so well this arvo!
It doesn't work for about 7 rounds then it gets very accurate. But enough teams have to play teams that have played teams that have played teams etc. For example, today's win by GWS has massively increased West Coasts rating. Right now they sit at number 1. because they thrashed GWS, who beat geelong who beat a whole bunch of teams.

Suspect the team that wins the Grannie finishes up on top :)
Yes. In 2015, in round 7 Hawthorn were 6th on the ladder, West Coast were second, and Fremantle were top undefeated. This system had Hawthorn Top, Westcoast second, Freo 3rd. Hawthorn were rated ahead of Westcoast by 43 points, which was 43% of hawthorns rating. Hawthon won the premiership a few months later by 46 points ahead of West Coast.. 42.8% of hawthorn's score.
