This has always been my main gripe too. It's even worse than a cap though, it's a minimum as well. That means that players in a high class skilful game get their scores scaled down to fit into the 3300 total while players in an error-ridden mess of a game have their scores scaled up resulting in players who performed better in a skilful game getting less points than those who were just the best of a bad lot in the crap game.

Supposedly it's using the reasoning that it's in line with the idea that a team that wins a low standard game gets the same 4 premiership points as the team that wins a high standard match, but this is an entirely different contest where it's the performance of the player that counts as opposed to other players in the comp so that reasoning makes no sense.

Rant over.
I get what you're driving at, but the error-ridden mess might be due to it raining sideways vs perfect conditions in the other game, the higher overall score might be due to both teams being really poor in defensive aspects, stuff like that.
The players get a share of the 3,300 points in line with their contribution to the overall total based on the weightings.
Reckon it's better to normalize the total than the alternative, beauty is subjective at the end of the day.

Scored 2537, but used my last two trades in a bit of a panic to win my knockout.
Went Brouch and Jarrod Cameron to Macrae and Owies.

Prelim next week, against a very similar team.

Who wins out of:

1. Bontempelli, Duncan, Mrouch and Tom Stewart
vs
2. Treloar, Yeo, Taranto and Hurn

It seems to me that if scores are inflated in an error ridden mess due to the weather then players are being rewarded for failing to cope with or adjust to the conditions. If the attacks are that much on top of the defences then surely they should be scored appropriately. I'm also unsure if that scenario would lead to higher scores overall as the poor defence scores would probably offset the higher attacking ones.

In any case, the SC scoring is what it is and we should all try to make our team selections with an aim to taking full advantage of its many vagaries and failings.

I feel like I’m going through a messy break up at the moment. I’m out in all leagues but I can’t stay away from reading articles etc and checking in on my team out of habit.

I'm amazingly still alive in 2 out of my 10 leagues despite having played with Hurn donuts and having to field Logue and D.Clarke these last few weeks.

Shows how s**t those 2 leagues are.....
