Analysing kicks

The purpose of this post is not to explain Aussie rules footy. I barely know how it works. But it has been noted that you can use statistics to analyse a footy player's most promising move.

Take Brent Harvey. He has been called selfish when he is playing offensively. But in reality he is one of the strongest attacking ball players in the AFL.

Why Brent Harvey is most dangerous.

Sourced by Champion Data, this information could be used to evaluate the effectiveness of attacking data in the AFL.

What does the above image tell us?

What could the flaws be with the data?

How could we design a test to measure a player's effectiveness?
