Pretty interesting post -
Can't believe an AFL journalist would have multiple digs at the open online community
Some pretty good points - how much would our game change if data was opened up, would we get better insights? Do we as fans have to rely on AFL media - Like Marc who has shown he doesn't even understand what stats are available for fans?
As noted by the same person - AFL fans can't even do what he calls basic stats and he hosts the AFL stats podcast and writes the AFL statsfiles. This is a joke when we compare things to overseas sports. This all started because an AFL media journalist on afl.com.au decided to use an outside source - shot charts for us the fans. Why can't fans get shot charts!
