One of SCTs new write-ups for the 2017 season……..Scoring Anomalies. Or otherwise known as ‘how many pts for an effective kick again?’ Champion Data has created one of the most complex scoring systems known to man. It is known to 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……….
Brad & Matt Crouch (ADE) – Between them they had 62 touches but shared in just 151 SC pts. Eleven clangers with both running at low 60s Disposal Efficiency absolutely killed off their chances of a monster score. Matt also had an ordinary kick:handball ratio which doesn’t always bode well for Supercoach (12:26).
Scott Pendlebury (COL) – Not often that we see Dependlebury in these neck of the woods. Especially after 29 touches & nine tackles. Yet 21 of his disposals were handballs, he committed four clangers and ran at 69%DE for his 91 pts. He is still a top midfielder for the season but he has been more ‘up and down’ than usual.
Stefan Martin (BRL) – When I saw that Stef had 21 touches & 40 hitouts against the Swans, I was expecting a 140 game. After five minutes of uncontrollable cursing, I realized that Stef only hit a target 57% of the time and also produced five clangers. No other choice but to accept the 93.
Michael Hibberd (MEL) – He was an upgrade target for many Coaches after an impressive start with Melbourne. Hibberd got hit hard by Champion Data against Hawthorn however, registering just the 56 pts. Seems really harsh considering he had 27 touches at 66%DE. He seems to have been heavily penalized for his uncontested disposals (23 in total) and five clangers. Grant Birchall had a similar problem over the last few years (although he’s barely relevant now). Could prove a thorn in Hibberd’s side if it continues………
Phil Davis (GWS) – Not SC-relevant at all but a perfect example of Champion Data rewarding clean, contested possessions. Two kicks & ten handballs, eight of those were contested, and each disposal hit the target (100% Disposal Efficiency) for 76 pts. Davis didn’t necessarily have a huge impact on the game but was effective when involved.
Marcus Bontempelli (WBD) – How could we forget the Champion Data Golden Boy? While I thought he was one of the best on ground, I was still a little surprised that he ended up on 128. Not so much from the 27 touches (14 contested), nine tackles, six clearances and a goal. It just feels like he wasn’t really penalized for the five clangers that are next to his name. At this rate, he won’t drop too far below $600k this season.
