They can be frustrating at various occasions each weekend, or heaven-sent when you just get over the line in a big league win. Here is a new segment I like to call ‘Scoring Anomalies’………or as it could be coined, ‘How did he not get more pts for that game??!?’ 😉
Champion Data have come up with a pts system that has spawned the greatest Fantasy Football competition in the Universe…….but, gee….it can be confusing as hell sometimes. Hopefully through these reviews we’ll be able to get a better grasp of the entire pts system. I wasn’t alone in noticing a few anomalies in the Collingwood/Bulldogs game last Friday night.
Adam Treloar – On face value, 33 disposals, six clearances and a goal would normally net you about 120pts. Unfortunately for Treloar-owners, 96 pts came up well short of expectations. 72% Disposal Efficiency isn’t necessarily awful but coupled with five clangers, a Free Kick against plus 22 uncontested possessions……….It seems the people at Champion Data were quite happy to scale Mr. Treloar right down to a bare minimum.
Steele Sidebottom – 35 touches and two goals yet Sidey still couldn’t get past 117 pts on Friday night despite an 82% DE rate and just the single clanger. The only explanation I can offer is that 24 of those disposals were uncontested. One could argue that his influence on the game wasn’t so significant. Which brings us to………….
Marcus Bontempelli – We already saw last year that the good folk at Champion Data have a very high opinion of the Bont. 22 touches (12 contested) and two goals brought him an impressive 120 pts from 81%DE. Hard to see any stats that really jump out apart from the ‘contested possessions’. He’s really been helped along with the perception of ‘influence’ during each game, hence the enormous amount of up-scaling! Imagine his future scores when he really begins dominating matches………
Which scoring anomalies did you find in the Supercoach system over the weekend? Any ‘Gremlins’ in the system. Something you need to vent? Anything you’d like us to delve into further? Let us know in the comments below………
