Geelong FC: Team of the Decade (2010-2019)

We recently launched both our Stats Insider AFL Player Ratings along with our new, weekly statistical series - “Stats That Matter”, and today, we’re introducing yet another content series, one in which will reveal the ‘Team of the Decade (2010-19)’ for each of the 18 AFL clubs.

These teams are created using the minimum games rule (50 games - except for GWS Giants and Gold Coast Suns) while relying on Stats Insider’s total and average game rating points to guide the process for team of the decade selection.

Given the complexity of AFL positions, our custom ratings were used as a guide by the Stats Insider staff who then worked together to mold it into a team that's fair and reasonable. The ratings and stats quoted are only based on the player’s output/performance while they were at that particular club.

Based on data over the last decade (2010-19), we’ve also ranked each team according to their win% and will reveal their respective ranks as per our average expected score Elo across the decade.

We're down to our final two in our 'Team of the Decade' countdown.

With nine finals appearances, finishing six times in the top-2 on the ladder, one minor premiership and winning the 2011 Premiership, the Geelong Football Club are ranked second on our list.

Elo Rank: 1st

Win% Rank: 2nd

Overall rank: 2nd
