One of SCTs new write-ups for the 2017 season……..Scoring Anomalies. Or otherwise known as ‘that can’t be right’ 😉 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 benefitted from our pts system last weekend? Who was negatively impacted? Here are a few mysteries to solve……….
Callan Ward (GWS) – According to the numbers, he’s not having his best start to the season. He’s dropped off from the (near) elite MID status he enjoyed over the last 3-4 years. Looking at his stats from Friday night, I thought he was a bit stiff not to reach the ton. 27 disposals, 15 of which were contested and just the two clangers but Ward just managed the 91pts. Disposal Efficiency was at 70%, not the greatest but still harsh not to get a ton. Just the one tackle doesn’t work too friendly with Champion Data unfortunately.
Todd Goldstein (NTH) – Seems to be getting the rough end of the stick this year from Champion Data. What came up as 77pts on Saturday would’ve surely been a 110 game during his stellar 2015 season. 16 touches at 81% DE, nine of which were contested, six clearances, four free kicks received, 30 hitouts with just the two clangers. 77 pts?? What more does Goldy have to do? If anyone can shed some light on this one? If one of the seven spectators at the game could give us their thoughts…….. 😉
Marcus Bontempelli (WBD) – If I may refer you to Thommo’s Rd6 Review, he already did a great job of explaining this one for me, thanks mate! Plain fact is that the Champion Data scoring system was made for the way Bont plays the game. He’s now an elite MID, get him in at some stage!
Callum Sinclair (SYD) – This one has been doing my head in all weekend. I had Sinclair in my team at various stages last season, but he never got close to a 142. 19 disposals (11 contested), 15 hitouts and a goal for 142 pts. Remarkable scoreline considering he ran at 78%DE and had two clangers in there. I asked the question of Champion Data on Twitter but have yet to receive an answer. I’m guessing Sinclair must’ve had a great deal of Hitouts To Advantage otherwise I’m at a loss to explain that end result.
Gary Ablett (GCS) – You all know what he did on the weekend. What sort of idiot would write the great man off? ‘The God Dilemma’ 😉 He’ll have his big days, of course. My main concern was the spate of injuries over the last few years. Whether he gets up for enough games to make it viable……..only time will tell……but I stand by my decision………
Which ‘anomalies’ stuck out for you over the weekend? Any disruption in programming? Something we should pry a bit further? Tell our Coaches about it in the comments below…..or you can always use this post to vent 😉
