AFL.AlltheStats.com is purely a fan's unofficial AFL Statistics and Records site. It has no official affiliation with the AFL, any of the clubs or any other site for that matter. The accuracy of the information displayed is only as good as the data entry and the ability of yours truly to retrieve that information from the database correctly. I am not perfect, so there will be errors, hence no guarantees are provided.
The previous version of the site utilised a "Content Management System" which I have since discovered, after my host nearly cancelled my account, is very server intensive, hence reverting back to a more basic design which I will slowly develop.
Rather than limiting visitors to a certain number of page views per hour, I have removed the option of filtering results for unregistered users.
As the site uses new encryption methods, previously registered users will need to re-register. Sorry about that. You can register for free here and use the filters to your hearts consent. Noting I reserve the right to ban anyone for excessive use (such as trying to download the entire site or for using automation systems).
The idea behind this site was to provide an AFL Statistics and Records resource and a few fun things to try out for Footy fans with the additional advantage of teaching myself a little bit about the web. I got the site on line back in June 2003, just to see if I could actually do it and have maintained it since with the help of a few players. It has gone through many iterations as I continue to learn about design and database development. I will never be a guru in this area, so if you see something that isn't right, or could be done better, I would value your thoughts.
AFL.AlltheStats.com utilises a database back end revolving around the quarter by quarter scores of every match played, since the inception of the VFL in 1897. I do not have the details of any pre-season or night competition details. Information is also available on just about every player and coach, every goalkicker, basic match stats back to the mid 2000s, team's ladder positions throughout history, their finals performances and more.
Utilising a database allows registered users to filter results to narrow in on a particular statistic or record. For example, Hawthorn's best comeback from a three quarter time deficit at the MCG against Melbourne between 1980 and 1990 in a Final. Not that you would want that information, but you get the gist. (For the record it was 22 points in the '87 Prelim)
