One of SCTs new write-ups for the 2017 season……..Scoring Anomalies. Or otherwise known as ‘that can’t be the right score’. 😉 We’ve all uttered those words at some stage already this season and not just because of the live scoring system playing up. But in all fairness to Champion Data, it was steadier after the Rich/Coll game.
Champion Data has created one of the most complex scoring systems known to man. Unfortunately it can be frustrating as hell and create a state of sheer disbelief when checking the SC scores after each game. Hopefully these Reviews will help change that perception as we seek to find answers to the CD scoring system. So who gained an advantage from our pts system last weekend? Who was negatively affected? Judging by the Game Chats over the last week, we had a few offenders first-up on the Thursday night…………
Adam Treloar (COL) – He becomes the first player to make this list on multiple occasions (and I only just started last week) 😉 Many passionate SCers were talking of early retirement from the Fantasy game, such was the dismay at Treloar’s final score. In my opinion, I found Pendles & Grundy to be more influential in their work around the ground but Treloar kept racking up possessions. Normally one might be optimistic about a 150 when your MID gathers 35 touches and kicks two goals.
Yet his score seems to have been dragged down by six clangers (65% Disposal Efficiency) & 25 of his disposals being classified as ‘uncontested’. Of course that seems harsh, but it’s not uncommon for players with that amount of ‘uncontested ball’. Many half-back flankers (Birchall, Houli, Malceski at the Swans in 2014) have a similar ratio of possessions (cont:uncont.) and battle to post big scores consistently. I believe it was the pre-scale score of 89 that most enraged the owners of Treloar. Thankfully the system worked smoothly after Thursday night.
For the record, a 125 would’ve been a fair score. While 108 isn’t completely terrible, I’m sure many owners are still livid about the end result. I have a bad feeling that we’ll be seeing a bit of Mr Treloar in the Anomalies post throughout the year……….
Taylor Adams (COL) – While he did have a decent game, it’s still a bit of a mystery how he scored better than Treloar last Thursday night. Adams had ten touches less than Treloar yet ran at the same DE rate of 65%. On paper it seems like his seven tackles and six clearances (just two clangers) helped Adams in a big way to 111pts for the night.
Ben Lennon (RIC) – He’s not really SC-relevant but I’m perplexed at his end score of 72pts. Nine disposals (66%DE) with three clangers, three tackles, two marks and a goal. That’s worth 72 pts? Really? Those five clearances must’ve been extremely influential 😉 Fair to say that ‘John’ was smiled upon by the SC-Gods!
Any ‘anomalies’ that annoyed you over the weekend? Any ‘Ghosts’ in the system? Something we should delve into a bit further? Point us in the right direction in the comments below…..or just vent if you feel like it 😉
