AFL 2011: Winning from behind in the regular season

1 Comment

This is a companion post to NRL 2011: Winning from behind in the regular season.

I am interested in the ability to win in invasive team games.

This season I have looked at winning behaviours in association football, Australian rules football, rugby league and rugby union.

In this post I list those teams in this year’s AFL fixtures in Australia who were able to overcome a deficit within a game to win in the regular season (before the finals’ rounds). The measure of a deficit was at the end of a quarter and does not reflect in every case the scale of a come back within a quarter.

In the table below the first named team overcame a deficit to win. There were three drawn games in the regular season.
