    It’s as much a game plan issue as it is a Hurn not understanding the game plan issue. You can’t blame a plan when it is not followed.

    We looked much better in the middle quarters taking the kicks into the corridor etc. The dogs play high tempo and it will be hard to crack it, with our game plan you just need to persist.

    If Hurn doesn’t take 10x kicks down the line and 4 smothered inside d50 it’s a different game. We lost all confidence after being belted in the first quarter and tried to make it up from there.

    Putting that aside, this midfield should never get belted like that so it’s far from the only reason.

    On your point re: Hurn, you're right. Statistically we are the worst team at transitioning the ball from D50 to a score.

    However, no midfielder had more than 20 touches. What in the actual fuck is that?!

    Our momentum in the 3rd (ie. all 3 goals) stemmed from centre clearances.

    Our first two goals was also attributable to stoppage clearances and the ensuing chaos/Naitanui winning the contested ball. Our best contested player cannot be our ruckman who has to be managed through the rest of his career FFS.

    If we can't generate scores outside of Naitanui winning the ball and/or feeding our mids, or a contested mark by our forwards then we've got serious problems both game plan and personnel wise.

    Approximately 20% of our scores last season were from centre clearances which was viewed as an anomaly relative to the rest of the comp. I don't know what it is this year but it'd probably be close if not even higher.

    I'm actually surprised WCE are top 8 as they really haven't looked very good from the games I've seen. Richmond win was alright but that was at home against a Richmond that is look very weak right now, just seem behind the usual standard.

    Have a look at the other teams near the 8 though Toasters look better when only compared to the dregs from 6th down

    We are lucky to be top 8 for sure, but we could equally as easily be top 4. Choked leads to St kilda and Essendon and a close loss to bulldogs in round 2. We were dog shit in all of them but definitely winnable.

    We have been incredibly frustrating to watch, but have also been decimated by injury. This week was easily our best lineup on paper which is probably why it was so disappointing to see us spud it up.

    5 changes in a week doesn’t help. Kelly was clearly underdone IMO but I also think the whole midfield don’t gel together very well.

    The whole midfield is underdone and carrying 3 players on rotation limits takes a huge toll on the rest of the squad.

    Always a very good chance of being exposed by an elite midfield like the Dogs who are also accustomed to roving to the opposition ruck more than anyone else and thus also largely negated NicNat's influence.

    It's hard to really work out how much is game plan and how much is personnel right now with the sheer amount of injuries to key players but there is a lot of redundancy in the midfield. Kelly is a poor man's Shuey, Redden is a poor man's Yeo and the other guys just aren't that good and when the wealthy versions are both on heavy rotation limits they basically aren't themselves either.

    Still, if they cling to the 8 and get healthy they're a genuine threat in a season where no team has really looked great except for maybe Melbourne and, well, they're Melbourne so their mental fragility is going to be an issue until they prove it isn't.

    Statistically we've ranked last for Inside 50s (currently bottom 3), last for transitioning from D50 to a score, last for pressure ratings (worst in 6+ years since Fox Footy started recording the metric), bottom 6 in contested possessions (although our games generally have low contested possessions).

    Offset by the fact we're first in goal kicking accuracy, contested marks, scores from centre clearances, hitouts to advantage and second to the Dogs (26%) for marks per inside 50 (25%), with a big gap to the next.

    So basically we're utter dogshit by some measures which is offset by being the best in others. So split the difference and scrape into the 8.

    Basically you're really good at all the single effort stats and really bad at the ones that require the most running and effort. Again, gets back to playing with so many underdone players for mine that just compounds into everyone being less fresh than the opposition teams are, especially as the game wears on.

    Always nice to see but AFL website calling it "upset of the century" is a bit of a reach.

    I reckon GWS knocking off Sydney in round 1, 2014 was the biggest upset in recent history. I think at the time GWS were paying $11

    Let me set the scene here



    Grand final
    Playing Collingwood
    We’re down by 5 goals
    You cunts know what happened



    Sydney coming off a top 4 finish in 2013 but were bundled out in the prelim finals. Looking to comeback stronger and harder they announce a shock signing of Lance “Buddy” Franklin, who later that season will take out his 3rd Coleman medal. Speculation prior to this signing was Buddy would make his way to GWS.

    Stung by the failure to sign Buddy, GWS sat on the other end of the spectrum, coming off 1 win in season 2013.

    It was a foregone conclusion, or so they would say, but on that fateful day in 2014, round 1, GWS would pull off the upset of the century. Defeating their cross town rivals in the battle of the bridge 15.9 99 to 9.13 67 in front of 17,102 diehards at Spotless stadium.

    Prior to that I reckon Bulldogs v Essendon round 21 with the Terry Wallace super flood to deny the dons a chance at a perfect season. All I can say is thank you flogs.

    I am boring and found an article. The Gold Coast Suns were $5.50 last night. That is not very short at all. This article is from 2018

    https://www.odds.com.au/news/the-boo...10-afl-upsets/

    Sydney ($1.03) v Gold Coast ($17) - Rd 18 2018 - Gold Coast won 12.16(88) - 8.16 (64)
    St Kilda ($16) v Fremantle ($1.02) - Rd 18 2014 - St Kilda won 17.16 (118) - 9.6 (60)
    Port Adelaide ($1.03) v Gold Coast ($14) - Rd 5 2011 - Gold Coast won 15.14 (104) - 15.11 (101)
    Essendon ($1.04) v Brisbane ($12) - Rd 8 2013 - Brisbane won 12.12 (96) - 12.14 (86)
    GWS ($12) v Sydney ($1.04) - Rd 1 2014 - GWS won 15.9 (99) - 9.13 (67)
    Melbourne ($12) v Essendon ($1.04) - Rd 10 2012 - Melbourne won 8.10 (58) - 6.16 (52)
    West Coast ($1.06) v Brisbane ($10) - Rd 14 2007 - Brisbane won 13.13.(91) - 9.10 (64)
    Adelaide ($1.06) v Melbourne ($10) - Rd 7 2014 - Melbourne won 11.4 (70) to 9.13 (67)
    Hawthorn ($1.06) v Port Adelaide ($10) - Rd 21 2015 - Port Adelaide won 16.12 (108) - 13.8 (86)
    St Kilda ($1.07) v North Melbourne ($9.50) - Rd 21 2009 - North Melbourne won 10.4 (64) - 8.11 (59)

    I recall a couple of theses. Sydney have a nasty habit of losing to the Gold Coast. Remember the Melbourne Essendon game. That came out of nowhere.

    Big Jono Brown played in the centre I think in the WCE/Bris game and dominated.

    I was at that Melbourne Essendon game. Jack Watts played one of his best games ever as an intercepting half back and in a genius move Colin Garland was sent forward
