How about a player's rating is his score multiplied by the number of minutes on the pitch? That would stop a sub getting 8/10 for 5 minutes against someone playing a full match and getting 7/10

e.g. Blair Sturrock - rating 7/10 and played for 74 minutes. So he'd score 7x74= 518 points.
e.g. Coughlan plays the last 4 minutes, score of 6/10 so amasses 4x6 = 24 points.


Just an idea!

But then Neil Harris who came on and changed the game last weekend would be penalised for having been a sub.

Player X who plays rubbish for 90 mins, scores a 1 gets 90.

Blair Sturrock, comes on for 5 mins, gets a hattrick, scores 10 gets 50.

Must. Try. Harder.

Perhaps we should be very mathematical and apply the sum of reciprocal powers

SUM [SUB]k=1 to infinity [/SUB]( 1/k[SUP]2[/SUP] ) = ( Pi[SUP]2[/SUP]/6 )

This would be more accutrate. Comments welcome.

I see what you mean and thanks for the idea, but as stated above, it will not work. Someone who played very average for 90 minutes will get a much higher mark than someone that has changed the game but only played for 20 minutes.

We have changed the rating system so that the top and bottom 5% of votes are discarded, most likely getting rid of the "silly" and "biased" voting. Another solution would be to only allow voting on a player if they have played at least X amount of minutes.

Oh well, it was just an idea.

If the variable "Possility" is a large number then the factoral of that would cause the estimates to all be very negative:winking:

I thought you was more concerned with age ratings on this site!!

is this scoring for fantasy football, as Blair & hattrick are mentioned in the same sentence? 1 goal in 3 matches would be nice but still probably unrealistic:smiles:
