Jim Park Analysis 2020

Welcome one and all to Jim Park Analysis 2020.
Yes, it is that time of year again, where the season beckons and hope fills our hearts (well, it did until a couple of weeks ago, but that is another tale).
Last year we had a win by Patrick Cripps. This year, who will it be?
Cripps remains the favourite. He is that good.
Sam Walsh appears to be the danger, as his brilliant 1st year form shows no sign of slowing.
Docherty is back. But is he back to his best?
Eddie Betts is back. GOOOAAALL!

Voting will continue as it has been for the last few years.
There are 15 votes available, to split as you choose, more or less.
No player is allowed to have more than 10 votes per game.
At least 3 players deserve a mention each week, even in the worst of losses.
Each game requires a rating, from F to A+. The rating determines the weighting of the game. This is usually important, as more players deserve a mention in a good game compared to that in a poor showing.
Live Long and Prosper!

Carlton vs Richmond Rd 1:  :(  :(

We couldn't do it. Again. An insipid first half, but some decent footy thereafter.

I'm not sure how many more times I'll be doing this for 2020, but here is what we thought:
Trends:
[1] Rating: 7.51. This represents a score between a D+ and C-. Considering how we played early, this is a reasonable score.
[2] 9 Players deserved a vote. That suggests I didn't do a thorough enough job, but ... Seriously, 9 players suggests that not enough was done by too many of our players. When we get 13 or 14 guys getting a mention we usually win.
[3] 13 people voted in this round, also a little lower than I'd hoped. However, considering that we lost and that nobody could see the game in person, it is a reasonable turnout. Hopefully we can actually win a game or two this year and bring the voters out.
[4] 5 players managed 100 votes or more. This shows that we did have a significant number of the better players on the ground. In our worst losses it can be as few as 1 or 2.
[5] Jack Martin's score was an excellent one for his debut, beaten only by Cripps and Weitering.
[6] We suffered 3 serious injuries in this game. However, it looks like they won't be missing much football. But that is just because the season is so screwed up.

Votes:
Cripps, Patrick   283
Weitering, Jacob   243
Martin, Jack   225
Casboult, Levi   127
Docherty, Sam   104
Petrevski - Seton, Sam   64
Murphy, Marc   52
Silvagni, Jack   23
Fisher, Zac   6

Not a surprise that Cripps topped the voting. Weitering's effort keeping his man goalless was excellent, as was Martin's effort up forward. Doc and Levi were giants, considering.
That Fisher got a vote suggests he was pretty decent, considering he was injured badly.

Progressive Scores:
284 - Cripps, Patrick (0)
243 - Weitering, Jacob (0)
226 - Martin, Jack (0)
128 - Casboult, Levi (0)
105 - Docherty, Sam (0)
64 - Petrevski - Seton, Sam (0)
53 - Murphy, Marc (0)
24 - Silvagni, Jack (0)
6 - Fisher, Zac (0)

If, as we fear, this is the last game for 2020, then Cripps has won another Jim Park Award. Amazing!
Live Long and Prosper!

I am taking something of a risk writing this before I lock the thread, but I don't expect many more voters. If there are some, I'll update the numbers as necessary.

Carlton vs Melbourne: we fail by a single point after a multi-week break due to Covid-19.
Our first quarter was totally fecal. The rest wasn't bad, except for our kicking at goal.

Trends:
[1] Marc Pittonet got his first senior game for us. he was thrashed early, but came back really well. We managed to get 2nd rating, a remarkable effort in the situation.
[2] 13 players managed to get a vote this week. This is the sort of result that is common when we win. This suggests that we probably deserved the win. Pity we couldn't manage it.
Last game only 9 people managed a vote, so this effort is an improvement. All the same, we need more from more players.
[3] We had 3 players get 100 or more votes. This is not as good as the previous round. Weitering again dominated his position and got top votes.
[4] 17 people voted in this round. That is an excellent effort. This compares to 9 in Round 1. If we start playing a bit better, more people will want to vote.
[5] A rating of 7.27 is slightly lower than last time. I guess it shows that we don't rate Melbourne. 7.27 represents a D+.
[6] We managed to get through this week with only 1 serious injury. Unfortunately, the one we got was a shocker and it happened early. We will miss Newman. He is gone for the season.
[7] Patrick Cripps was 8th highest this week, his lowest rating in a long time. Even so, he could have won us the game if he didn't hit the post.

Weitering, Jacob 377
Pittonet, Marc 152
Docherty, Sam 150

Cripps, Patrick 53
Martin, Jack 28
Petrevski - Seton, Sam 13

Rd 3: Carlton defeats Geelong at Geelong.
At last!
The next task is to play 4 quarters. It must be possible.

Trends:
[1]   This is one of the evenest performances we’d had for a long time. 4 players managed more than 200 votes. 13 different players deserved a mention. That is the sort of thing I like to see.

[2]   With a rating of 9.53 (which represents halfway between an A- and B+), this was recognized as one of our better efforts in recent years.
But, how different would it have been if Geelong had kicked straight in the last quarter? Come to that, if we’d kicked the goals in the last quarter, as we did have chances.

[3]   17 people voted again this week, the same as last week. This round last year had only 12 voters.

[4]   Pittonet has impressed so far. He is ranked 2nd in the ruck stats at the moment. I don’t think that will last: there are some pretty good rucks out there, but it is a very positive sign. His aggression and commitment have been excellent.

[5]   We managed to get through the game without a serious injury. That is very positive, as we have the tendency to have a lot of injuries.

[6]   It was really nice beating Geelong at Geelong, something we haven’t done for quite a while. Granted that we haven’t played many games in Geelong either, but that is another issue.

Votes:
Betts, Eddie 252
Cripps, Patrick 249

The coaches gave BOG to Levi. We gave it Eddie Betts in a very close race.

Rd 4: Carlton vs the Drug Cheats at the MCG
We got over the line, but really should have won by considerably more.

Trends:
[1]   18 voters again this week, a good, solid turnout. This time last year we had only 12. Last week we had 17.
[2]   We couldn’t emulate last week’s even performance, but we did have 2 guys get over 300 votes, which is also a pretty solid outing. We also had 17 players get a mention. That is huge. A cannot remember another game with 17 players deserving a vote!
[3]   A Rating of 9.2 is a little lower than last week’s, but it is still a very credible B+. If we could produce that every week, I would be happy!
[4]   Marc Pittonet’s vote was down this week, which was disappointing after his first couple. However, he continued to be an important factor in our midfield effort. Murphy continues to get a mention but is only attracting relatively low numbers each week. He may not be a 4-quarter player any longer but is making an impact at good times. Similarly, Mitch McGovern: his intent seems there, but he is just not getting the ball enough to be the contributor we need him to be.
[5]   We managed to get through a game without damaging our list in the process. However, we have 4 or more players unavailable for the season, all of whom could be useful.
[6]   It was very close at the top this round, with a mere 5 votes separating the top 2 place getters. Especially so when Cripps was not one of our top votes getters.

Votes:
Cuningham, David 325
Docherty, Sam 320
Casboult, Levi 240
Gibbons, Michael 105
Pittonet, Marc 69
Walsh, Sam 69
Curnow, Edward 66

Rd 5: Carlton vs St. Kilda
Alas, the result was not what we wanted. You could honestly say that we didn't have a 4 quarter player on the night. And we still managed to get close!

Trends:
[1]   13 voters this week, down from 18 the previous week. Not too bad for a loss. We managed 14 voters this round last year.
[2]   With a rating of 6.74, this was the worst rating we’ve had all season. This represents a D-. It is probably a reasonable measure of how we played, but we still managed to get within a few goals in the end. Clearly, we are marking harder as our expectations are higher.
[3]   Although quite a few players got mentions this week, there was nothing of the evenness we’ve had recently. One player, Jack Martin, dominated the scoring, even though his first half was significantly better than his second. That suggests the majority of the voters were not satisfied by the drop in effectiveness of the team.
Setters also played a mediocre game but managed to garner a lot of votes for similar reasons: he had at least a short period of dominance and was considered to have done his job.
[4]   Liam Jones polarized the voters this week. He got none from a number of voters for the bad mistakes which gifted the ‘Aints two goals. Other recognized that he was the most effective defender on the field with 11 marks and the total domination of his opponent.
[5]   We did manage to get through the game relatively injury free. That is a big positive.
[6]   13 players managed to get a mention this week. This is normally the sign that we have played well. But that is not the case this week. It is more than a lot of players had small periods of good play.
[7]   Unfortunately some players who have been very good for us failed to make a significant impression. Pittonet was down for the first time, Cunners followed up his best game with an invisible one, while Cripps and Docherty were below their best.

Votes:
Martin, Jack 379
Jones, Liam 171
Setterfield, Will 161
Docherty, Sam 73
Cripps, Patrick 67
Gibbons, Michael 57
Simpson, Kade 41
Weitering, Jacob 26
Curnow, Edward 16
Petrevski - Seton, Sam 8
Pittonet, Marc 5
Philp, Sam 5
Newnes, Jack 3

Jack Martin was 200 votes in front of his nearest rival for top spot, which was Liam Jones. Jones just managed to get in front of Setters.
Sam Philp managed to get his first votes.

Rd 6: Carlton vs the Western Bulldogs
The Blues played well and muzzled the Dogs.

Trends:
[1]   For the first time I can recall, every player except two got a mention. They were Marc Murphy, who wasn’t that bad, and co-Captain Sam Docherty, who beat his man. 20 out of 22! Amazing!
Basically, this was one of the most even team performances we’ve produced. There was no single dominant figure, no Judd-like 400+ vote performance. I was so pleased to see such an even spread of effort.
[2]   There were 17 voters this week. I thought we might have managed a couple more, but 17 is pretty good, considering that only a couple of Qld Blues saw the game live and that we were on Fox.
How many would have voted if there were 50 000 at the MCG? Only Covid-19 knows.
This round last year attract 16 voters.
[3]   The rating this week was 10.06, which represents an A. This is also much larger than anytime in recent memory. Now to reproduce that!
[4]   We did have some injuries in this round: Cripps and Murphy being the most significant. Cripps was down for most of the day and appeared to be carrying something.
[5]   For the second time this season Jack Martin led the vote count, with a very respectable 275. Ed Curnow came in just behind on 260. 5 players managed 100 or more.
[6]   We managed our biggest winning margin since 2014 with Cripps down. That says a lot.

Votes:
Martin, Jack 275
Curnow, Edward 260
Setterfield, Will 159
Kennedy, Matthew 154
Betts, Eddie 133
Gibbons, Michael 89
Pittonet, Marc 77

Yes, we have a new leader! Jack Martin has overtaken Jacob Weitering for the lead. Weitering is still getting votes, just not as many as he managed earlier in the year. Docherty and Cripps are falling behind while Pittonet continues his strong run.

Rd 7: Carlton vs Port Adelaide and we get beaten after the siren. That hurt.
Trends:
[1]   The trend of this year continues: we have very few dominating players and a lot of contributors. We had 16 players deserve a mention. Usually that is enough to win, but we failed at the last hurdle.
[2]   Only 12 people voted this week, down from 17 last week. I guess that happens with a loss.
[3]   Our rating this week was 8.31, which represents a C+. Most people voted in the C – B range, except for one, ElwoodBlues1, who thought we were rubbish (E). I wonder how we would have voted if that last kick had missed? We were really close!
[4]   5 players managed more than 100 votes this week. Not surprising, as we were the better team on the day.
[5]   Sam Walsh had his first BOG for the season with 313 votes. Next was Weitering with 177.

Round 8:   Carlton vs North Melbourne
It was disappointing that we couldn’t ‘put North away’, but a win like that showed how much we have improved.

Trends:
[1]   Another week with 16 guys getting votes. That tells me that, while nobody is dominating, the team is working. We rarely lose when we get such an even contribution.
[2]   17 people voted this week, compared to 12 last week. This round last year we had 16 voters. Considering how poorly we played against Hawthorn, it worries me that we will get very few voters.
[3]   The rating this week was 8.69, which is decent. That represents a B- overall. We also didn’t really have the sort of outliers this week that we had last week.
[4]   6 players managed 100 votes or more. I don’t think we’ve been this even since I have been doing this.
[5]   Will Setterfield managed his first BOG of the year. This was his third top 3 finish. Hopefully it is a sign of things to come.
Ed Curnow remains in our top 10 from every game we’ve played this year. This is a great effort.
On the other hand, it was Gibbo’s first time out of the top 10.
[6]   Setters managed 238 votes, just ahead of Matthew Kennedy’s 222.

Rd 9: Carlton vs Hawthorn
We produce our worst effort for the year after a very good start. It was bitterly disappointing to be beaten as we were.

Trends:
[1]   We had 10 voters for this game, down from around 17. While 10 is very low, this time last year we had just 6 people who voted. Must be something about this round making us play poorly.
[2]   As we have a low rating and not many voters, we had the lowest number of votes for the year, and by a considerable margin.
[3]   Only 10 players managed a mention this week, considering that we didn’t have a poor player in the first quarter. It shows how totally we dropped out of the game. A lot of players barely managed to touch the ball after quarter time.
[4]   This week there were a couple of standout performances, unlike the evenness of recent times. Three players managed more than 100 votes only.
[5]   The rating this week was 6.17, by far the lowest of the year. That represents halfway between and E [/color}and an E+.
[6]   Weitering managed his 2nd BOG for the year. Casboult hasn’t made it to BOG yet, but this was his 4th top five finish. Patrick Cripps was back in the top 3 after a very lean spell.
[7]   At least we didn’t have to worry about contentious umpiring this week. We were so ordinary that it made no difference.

This was a game of what might have been. The clamour over free kicks has never been louder and we were certainly on the receiving end of some shockers.

Trends:
[1]   We had 12 voters this week, up from 10 against Hawthorn and 14 for the same round last year. It is normal now to have approximately one third of the voting population silent after a loss. Nichevo.

[2]   Even though we lost, the voters considered our game better than for some of our victories. There were over 300 more votes than for last week.

[3]   This week 14 players managed a mention, a considerable improvement over last week when only 10 players saluted. One of the trends of the year has been the evenness of our performance. However, you can also say that fewer of our players than ever before have grabbed games by the scruff of the neck.

[4]   This week 5 players managed more than 100 votes each. This is a considerable improvement over last week as well.

[5]   The rating this week was 8.14, a considerable improvement over last week and equating to a little over a C. There was still quite a large discrepancy in the ratings, from a B to an E.
When you get down to it, many of our voters have very different views to others. 

[6]   If we had to rate the Umpiring this week, we just might have managed record lows! The simple fact of this year is that very few people are happy with the umpiring. Whatever the AFL may decide in future, I doubt they can fix the present mess without a lot of work.

[7]   After having so few spectators all year, it must have been fairly daunting over in Perth with a very loud, very negative Weagles crowd. Much Kudos to the supporters of the Blues who turned up.

[8]   Liam Jones managed his first BOG of the season with 285 votes. This was Jones’ 6th result inside the top 10. Close behind was Zac Fisher with 231 and 4 goals.

Votes:
Jones, Liam 285
Fisher, Zac 231
Kennedy, Matthew 176
Walsh, Sam 146
Cripps, Patrick 125
Murphy, Marc 64
Setterfield, Will 47
Simpson, Kade 34
Curnow, Edward 27
Weitering, Jacob 24
de Koning, Tom 20
Petrevski - Seton, Sam 17
Williamson, Tom 14
Plowman, Lachlan 7
Casboult, Levi 3

Some solid efforts in there. Kennedy and Setterfield continue their improvement, while Cripps creeps back towards form.

Weitering extended his lead, but not by much. With Jack Martin off early, he didn't have the opportunity to do much. It is actually pretyy tight in the pack that follows, although Cripps is on the improve.
Live Long and Prosper!

Round 12:   Carlton vs Fremantle in Perth
What a win! Jack Newnes has made a name for himself and will forever be remembered, even though he played on his worst games on the day.
It was nice to break someone else’s heart, instead of having ours broken.

Trends:
[1]   17 peopled voted for this game, well up on last week and 1 more than for the same round last year. Nothing like a win to get the voters putting their 2 cents worth in!
[2]   Even though we won, there were only 100 more votes cast compared to last week. I guess most of us were unimpressed by our 1st quarter. I know I was.
[3]   15 players deserved a mention this week, only 1 more than last week. Fair enough, as we did put in against the Weagles.
[4]   Unlike most weeks this season, we had 3 players dominate the voting this week. They all managed well over 200 votes each. Nobody got between 100 and 200 votes this round. Those three players were Sam Walsh, Patrick Cripps and Ed Curnow.
[5]   the rating this week was 8.83, a very solid score. This represents a B-. Again, not bad considering we only led after the siren.
[6]   I am thinking we should have a rating system for the Umpires. We managed frees at the end that the Freo people wouldn’t be happy with (they were clearly there, but that is another story), while the Umps basically gave Freo 2 of their first quarter goals. To be honest, the Umpiring wasn’t as bad as it has been of recent times, but for those two shockers in the first quarter.
[7]   Ed Curnow managed his 1st BOG for the season, followed closely by Sam Walsh (his 1st second place) and Patrick Cripps (his 4th top-3 performance).
[8]   Again, a mention to the Carlton supporters in Perth should be made. They did us proud.

Round 13:   Carlton vs Gold Coast in Darwin
Probably the 2nd most dominant game we’ve had for the year, only hurt by our poor kicking for goal. It was very satisfying to watch us win on a Friday Night on free-to-air TV!

Trends:
[1]   This week 16 people voted, down from 17 last week and 17 for the corresponding game last year. Still, a solid voter turnout.

[2]   There were less than 60 votes different comparing this week to last week. Was this our response to our poor kicking for goal?

[3]   16 players managed to get a mention this week, which is an excellent effort and a mark of how dominant we were around the field.

[4]   We had 5 players get 100 votes or better, led by Marc Murphy with 270. It goes to show that instead of having 1 or 2 dominant players, we spread the load around. Overall, this is a positive thing, but I would like to see a few more outstanding performances.

[5]   The rating this week was 9.21, which corresponds almost to a B+ and our 3rd highest rating for the year.

[6]   This was Marc Murphy’s first dominant game for the season and his first BOG. 2nd place getter, Jacob Weitering, had his 6th score in the top 3.

Murphy, Marc 270
Weitering, Jacob 181
Martin, Jack 173

It is close at the top, with anyone of the top 5 being able to win it.

Notice the Roar website did its best "P" surname team this week and Jim Park was the only Carlton player to get a spot in the team (on the bench).  Val Perovic might be a bit unlucky but beyond that the cupboard is a little bare. Brad Pearce shone bright only briefly, Phil Pinnell was a soldier with a 200 game career (including Melbourne).  Any others to note?

Rd 14: Carlton vs Collingwood
Such a disappointing game. We were in it for so long, but never seemed to do enough.

Trends:
[1]   Only 12 voters for this game, compared to the 17 for this round last year and 16 for last week’s game. On of the issues of having a ‘condensed period’ is that it is harder to garner interest in voting.
The again, losing doesn’t help either.

[2]   With the lower rating and the lower number of people voting, the total votes received was down as well by 240 votes. That is a significant drop, but not the sort of thing we saw a few years back when we were being pounded regularly.

[3]   13 players deserved a vote this week, down from the 16 of last week. This continues the trend of having a larger contribution from more players, rather than single dominant performances. Mind you, I wouldn’t mind seeing a Judd-like or fit-Cripps-like performance. We some Brownlow votes.

[4]   We managed to have 5 players get 100 or more votes this week. That is solid.

[5]   The rating this week for 7.61, which represents just under a C-. Not too bad in the circumstances, but disappointing when we really needed a good performance to get us to the finals.

[6]   Sam Walsh managed his 2nd BOG for the year. In the last seven games he has managed 6 top 5 finishes. And there are idiots out there who think we made a mistake getting him! Morons! (Kane Cornes, I’m looking at you!)

[7]   Ed Curnow and Jacob Weitering continued their very consistent seasons with solid voting displays.
