One of SCTs new write-ups for the 2017 season……..Scoring Anomalies. Or otherwise known as ‘how does the Bont keep getting that?’ 😉 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 some of the perplexing cases from Rd8………..
Trent Cotchin (RIC) – 25 touches (ten contested), seven tackles, six clearances and a goal but still couldn’t crack the ton (89pts). This is what happens when you get a mention in ‘Rare Gems’ 😉 If not for the five clangers and 72% Disposal Efficiency, Cotchin would’ve continued his impressive start to the season.
Brad Ebert (PTA) – It seems to happen every year. Just as Ebert starts entering the Trade Talk thread, he takes a slide. He can be a talented player but he goes through some massive peaks and troughs. One might argue he was worse off than Cotchin (above) with 31 touches, four marks, four tackles and six clearances still not being enough to crack the ton (89pts). He’s been harshly penalized in my view for his four clangers and twenty uncontested possessions. The uncontested disposal is almost a curse in Supercoach. It’s not heavily influential according to Champion Data so it scores poorly on the scale. Even poorer if it misses the mark………
Josh J Kennedy (WCE) – Fourteen touches at 50% Disposal Efficiency including three goals & six behinds. I’d say 80 pts would’ve been a fair result but JJK ended the night on 102. From the nine marks that JJK raked in, three were contested and five were ‘inside 50’. I’d say Champion Data has been very generous there. Even more reason to find a spot for JJK as a Top6 FWD (he’s on target).
Jonathon Patton (GWS) – Fifteeen disposals and two goals for 98 pts seems a little extreme for mine. Considering Jeremy Cameron kicked six goals on the day and only received 20 pts more is a little unbalanced. Three of his six marks were contested but he wasn’t that influential on the day.
Kayne Turner (NTH) – Nine touches (at 33%DE) and two goals for 72 pts?? The Masters at Champion Data smile heavily upon tackles, for which Turner had ten(!) to boost his score.
Which ‘anomalies’ stood out for you over the weekend? Any gremlins running things in the system? Something we should pry a bit further? Tell our Coaches about it in the comments below……..
