- AFL Club
At the end of the 17-round season, everyone will wind up with an "Opposition" number close to zero, since this isn't adjusted for timing (i.e. catching teams at a low or high point). Although top teams will have a slightly easier fixture by virtue of not having to play themselves, while bottom teams will have a slightly harder one.And the Tigers ... it just stays hard (?)
The HGA numbers for the QLD clubs will keep going up, I assume, while the Vic ones will keep going down. I do think the AFL have done a very good job of controlling for this, though, since it would have been easy for those numbers to blow out.
