One of SCTs new write-ups for the 2017 season……..Scoring Anomalies. Or otherwise known as ‘Mitchell deserved better than that!’ 😉 Champion Data has invented one of the most complex scoring systems known to man. It is 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 won out from our pts system last weekend? Who was badly hit? Here are some of the X-Files from Rd9………..
Nic Newman (SYD) – Everyone’s favorite rookie……well, those that kept him anyway 😉 Normally you’d expect 30 touches and a goal to bring in 110pts (at least……I mean, that’s a Bont 150!). While we’re all still rapt to be getting 93pts from a backline rookie (any rookie, really), his score was negatively impacted by a lack of contested possessions (just seven) and tackles (just one). Definitely a trait shared by half back flankers.
Trent Cotchin (RIC) – The whipping boy at Tigerland hasn’t fared too badly this year but his latest effort needs to be highlighted. 26 touches, two goals four tackles for ‘just’ the 95pts. This one shows Champion Data’s importance on Disposal Efficiency where Cotchin only hit half his targets.
Shane Mumford (GWS) – One kick, four handballs, six tackles, 135pts……wait, what? Those 40 hitouts must’ve all been to advantage or Champion Data has some explaining to do!
Tom Mitchell (HAW) – How could I do this write-up without mentioning Tom Mitchell’s 50 disposals? Only the 7th player in history to achieve the feat, massive effort! But was it the right outcome of 158pts? 22 kicks, 28 handballs (22 contested possessions), eight marks, eight tackles, four free kicks & two against, five clearances, four clangers at 68%DE.
Considering Hawthorn lost the game, one could argue that Mitchell’s overall influence was less of a Pendlebury or Treloar. Yet Ablett managed a 210 from 45 touches the other week? Fun fact from @FantasyFreako: ‘T.Mitchell ranks 87th in the AFL for metres gained but #1 for assisted metres gained’. Where do you stand on this one?
Which ‘anomalies’ annoyed you over the weekend? Any problems with the system? Something we should look into a bit further? Tell our Coaches about it in the comments below……..
