The J(uro) Curve
Re: The J(uro) Curve
What is going on here? Wests Tigers have broken the JCurve!
4 wins out of 5, all against last year's top 4. The curve keeps going up, and my computer won't accept it!
Key results after 5 rounds:
 11% chance of minor premiership (Dragons are 25%, Warriors are 23%, Eels are 0.2%)
 43% chance of finishing in top 4 (Dragons are 64%, Warriors are 61%, Eels are 3%)
 73% chance of finishing in top 8 (Dragons are 88%, Warriors are 86%, Eels are 13%)
 8% chance of finishing in bottom 4 (Eels are 64%, Bulldogs are 45%, Dragons are 3%)
 1% chance of wooden spoon (Eels are 26%, Bulldogs are 13%, Dragons are 0.2%)
At 73% chance of making the finals, this is our 3rd best start to the season (5 rounds) out of all our 19 years. The only better starts were in 2000 (74%) and 2010 (73%). In 2000 we were 311 but there were only 14 teams. In 2010 we were 401 but had a better for and against at this stage.

If you have a way of getting the graphs to me I'm happy to host them on a server here.

I was expecting a danger drop week 10. Looking at two of those years, the drop came week 8. 2015 it came week 10.Juro wrote: ↑Tue 04 Apr, 2017 8:03 amHere we go again, folks. Another year of the curve. Taylor obviously had no idea how to drive the thing. Can Cleary get it moving in the right direction???
Key results:
 0.7% chance of minor premiership (Storm are 25%, Dragons are 14%)
 7% chance of finishing in top 4 (Storm are 62%, Dragons are 47%)
 23% chance of finishing in top 8 (Storm are 86%, Dragons are 75%)
 50% chance of finishing in bottom 4 (Storm are 3%, Dragons are 8%)
 17% chance of wooden spoon (Storm are 0.4%, Dragons are 0.9%)
At 23% chance of making the finals, this is our worst start to the season (5 rounds) out of all our 18 years. The previous worst was 26% in 2012, where we also started with a 14 record, but only had a 42 F/A record and were sitting 3rd last.
hmm, this looks like an old graph, but I think we need to Rotate Sue and Grant in now to keep our forwards fresh.
Does this graph appear for people? Trying twitter this time...

Looks good. There's a bit of a pattern yeah? What the hell happens at the back end of our seasons? Hopefully we can stay above the average line this year.
Great! I'll go back and edit my posts from the last week.

Great work Juro! Hopefully the graph keeps going up this season and we can maintain this momentum, the next 4 weeks will show us where we really are. There was so much focus on the challenge of the first 5 weeks hopefully we don’t see a drop off in intensity.

Very true comment, this. We are over this massive hurdle. Please let us not fall flat on our faces now!Chicken Faced Killa wrote: ↑Mon 09 Apr, 2018 7:44 pmGreat work Juro!

Thanks for all the kind words of support. I enjoy doing this, and the joy is doubled when I know others appreciate it too.

What a sweet win that was. Eight losses in a row at Brookvale (now to be referred to as Brooksvale), then we win 3812, the exact same score we won by in 2003.
And the curve has reached a new high for this stage of the season. We're sitting at 81%, fractionally in front of where we were all the way back in 2000 at this stage, and miles ahead of where we were last year. Eagle eyed viewers will spot that the yaxis has had to shift to 90% so the curve will fit.
Key results after 6 rounds:
 15% chance of minor premiership (Dragons are 32%, Panthers are 16%, Eels are 0.03%)
 52% chance of finishing in top 4 (Dragons are 73%, Panthers are 55%, Eels are 1%)
 81% chance of finishing in top 8 (Dragons are 92%, Panthers are 82%, Eels are 9%)
 4% chance of finishing in bottom 4 (Eels are 71%, Cowboys are 54%, Dragons are 1%)
 0.4% chance of wooden spoon (Eels are 33%, Cowboys are 16%, Dragons are 0.1%)
I have checked through the history of teams being 81% or better chance of making the finals after 6 rounds. The only instances where they failed to make it were:
 2017: Dragons
 2006: Cowboys
 2000: Wests Tigers

Great stuff Juro. Out of interest:
how many teams have been at 81% or above to make the finals after 6 rounds? I’m guessing about 55 so only 3/55 have missed out.
What’s the earliest round a team has hit 100% chance of making the finals? Round 14ish I’m guessing

In the years I've modelled (200017) there were 23 teams who have been at 81% or more by round 6. Of these, there were 3 who missed out. This equates to 13%. So you could argue we are closer to 87% chance of making the finals...Chicken Faced Killa wrote: ↑Mon 16 Apr, 2018 2:13 pmGreat stuff Juro. Out of interest:

Yes, nice guess. The Storm reached 100% in Round 14 in 2007. They were on 24 points (1202), 10 points clear of 9th place.Chicken Faced Killa wrote: ↑Mon 16 Apr, 2018 2:13 pmWhat’s the earliest round a team has hit 100% chance of making the finals? Round 14ish I’m guessing
