You may have noticed I've not been adding reviews the last few weeks this is due to reduced hits on my reviews but mainly due to lack of time for me to add them. I will be phasing them out from now on using other means such as on forums, my Facebook and Twitter accounts to post significant facts etc.

For those following me on Facebook, make sure you set your notifications to view WAFL FootyFacts so you see my posts.

Any way here are some facts of interest for week 1 of the finals

East Perth become just the 3rd team to start and end the season will a scoreless quarter, joining South Fremantle in 1904 and Swan Districts in 1952!

West Perth's scoreline of 10.9 (69) is the 7th occurrence of this score in 2016 equaling 4.8 (32) in 1909 as the most times a single scoreline has occurred in a single season.

Both South Fremantle and West Perth join the two Easts as the only teams with over 10,000 points for in finals footy.

South Fremantle's win over West Perth increased their finals win loss record to 61-60 with 1 draw.

With a score of 5.7 (37) East Perth now hold two of the lowest three score against Peel Thunder.

Most stats freaks know that Michael Tuck played 426 VFL/AFL games without winning a best and fairest. Which WAFL players played the most games without gaining a club best and fairest?

I have been able to discover the following players with more than 230 games and no best and fairest. There might be extra players from the last 25 years whom I haven't included.

Tim Barker

239

Swan Districts

Tim Barker played his 239 games without ever playing in a final. The black and whites’ only major round appearance during those years was in 1945 when Tim Barker was entirely unavailable due to war service. He did not play open-age football until 1947 for that reason although the restricted age competition ended after Barker’s only season therein in 1944.

Tim Barker’s record is eight more than the V/AFL record held by his namesake, Trevor Barker of St. Kilda – and I have assumed ever since discovering it the record for all major Australian Rules competitions.

Do you know the nearest rivals in WA(N)FL history for most career games without playing any finals? If you do could they be tabulated?

Hi mianfei - sorry mate I haven't been on bigfooty for a while. I'll check into the most games without finals for you if you would still like to know and I'll get back to you with an answer shortly

What a weird WAFL ladder this year.

Swan Districts and West Perth make the finals with percentages of less than 90, while East Perth and Claremont both have percentages greater than 100 and miss out on playing in September.

Perth again finish last - 10th wooden spoon since their last GF appearance in 1978, 20 years since the Demons played finals, and 40 years since they last won a premiership.

In the 40 years since Perth won the 1977 flag, Claremont have won 8 premierships, East Fremantle 5, East Perth 4, Peel Thunder 1, South Fremantle 4, Subiaco 8, Swan Districts 5 and West Perth 4.

Where to now for poor old Perth, one has to wonder.

Two other things:
  • Subiaco has a chance to equal East Fremantle’s 1946 record of twenty-one straight victories within a season. The Lions lost the opening match to South Fremantle by 39 points but have not lost since.
  • East Fremantle, for their part, despite avoiding the wooden spoon with a convincing win over Swan Districts (amidst a Perth bye) have had their worst record since their first 1898 season (in 119 years).
    • The blue and whites previously also won only three games in 2004, but their 2017 percentage was 74.62% as against 2017’s 69.04%.

Cameron’s best is 61 hitouts, there have been at least 4 Occassions where players have had more.

The best and really only place for WAFL stats is waflfootyfacts.net - I have more WAFL stats and records than any other source online or offline. Although player stats data is not readily available I have “most hit outs in a game” since 2010 which can be found here - http://waflfootyfacts.net/player/game.php#8.

Check out the about page for more ... http://waflfootyfacts.net/about.php

Some facts about Subiaco’s extraordinary 2017 and 2018 seasons:
  1. After winning all twenty games in 2018, Subiaco became only the second open-age WAFL team to go through undefeated, following East Fremantle in 1946.
  2. In the three seasons of 2008, 2017 and 2018, Subiaco had a combined home-and-away record of 56—2 – or three seasons with none or one loss!
  3. In contrast, between 1947 and 2007, only one team – Claremont in 1987 – lost only one game in a senior WANFL/WAFL/WASFL/Westar Rules season, and the 1987 Tigers also drew one game
  4. If Subiaco had not lost the 2017 Grand Final, the Lions would have won 39 straight games, which would have constituted an all-time WAFL/WANFL/WASFL/Westar Rules record, and only ten short of North Melbourne’s 1910s VFA record
  5. After the 2018 home-and-away season, Subiaco had won 37 straight home-and-away games
  6. If they win their first seven of 2019, the Lions will have surpassed North Melbourne’s 43 consecutive home-and-away victories in the VFA between 1914 and 1919

Been busy over off season so far, here's some updates I've made. View all my site updates here... http://waflfootyfacts.net/updates.php

13 January 2019

Team - Margin Records: You can now use filters to view individual team margin records by opponent, venue, round and/or season. Previously you could only filter by opponent. Team margin records can be accessed via the individual Team's home page.

30 December 2018

Players: Added player records by jumper number to my Player Records section. You can search by team, including 'All Teams' and by jumper number. Note: My jumper data is still largely incomplete, more jumper numbers will be added over time.
