#AFL 2016: After Round 20


I have been using secondary data from the official AFL website to track team performances in the 2016 season.

Progress on the Ladder

My view of teams’ performances on the 2016 Ladder compared to their positions on the Ladder at the end of the regular season in 2015.

I have been following the performances of winning teams in 2016.

My chart for the profile of winners using lowest and highest margin per quarter and the median score per quarter is:

Performances After a Bye Week

I am fascinated by the science and art of modulating training programs. I monitor teams’ performances after their by week to visualise trends. My scale of momentum points is very basic and is independent of home or away games and ability of opponents. I use 1 for a win and -1 for a defeat.
