Anyone have any stats to show how the evenness of the seasons have been affected by Shocking's rule changes? It must have been way less even before 2017. I hate to think about how uneven it was back in the 80's!

This bloke should just ride off into the sunset.

Genuine question though, I can think of a few ways to measure evenness: close results, say below 1 goal or 6 points, blowouts, say 10 goals or above, and average margin.

Reckon there'd be way to many varying factors to weigh in over different eras.
Different ground conditions would massively effect scoring compared to the manicured lawns they play on now.
How do you rate what is a close game compared to a blow out in different eras of the game? During a period of low scoring a blow out would be a five goal win while at other times it would need to be a ten goal win. Yet as gets shown often in footy now a five goal margin is simply a ten minute burst of footy.

One measure might be the variance of the win count for each team in h&a games, counting draws as a half. The lower the variance, the more even the season (17 games in 2020 will artificially lower that year's figure).

2008 22.3
2009 21.6
2010 15.7
2011 28.8
2012 25.6
2013 25.9
2014 19.0
2015 20.8
2016 25.5
2017 12.7
2018 21.4
2019 14.6
2020 12.3*
2021 7.3**

One thing that was really good about last nights coverage of our game was Leppitsch’s special comments. Further evidence that Richo should be banned from any coverage of Richmond games.

They are likely gonna be all over us this week, they cant wait to bury us and write us off.

Luckily the Figgies last Stand today will shift some focus back onto them and onto the GoDeez who are not quite going as well as they were.
