Mills 25 touches, 2 tackles, 1 goal, 7 clearances, 2 clangers 80% DE - 88 points


Ridscab 28 touches, 0 tackles, 0 goals, 0 clearances, 3 clangers, 78% DE - 123 points



Doesn't pay to be a midfielder who impacts the game, 2nd most clearances on the ground, big at stoppages, lays tackles and wins his own footy gaiz 🤣
Sydney juiced his scores with so many behinds lmao and OOTB

4/367

Will probably field Powell over Campbell's 49

Another game with a close finish where a final quarter with only a few touches has seen massive down scaling of players' scores instead of the usual modest gains. Very similar to what happened in the Adelaide/Gold Coast match last week. Something has changed with the weighting.
I'm thinking the opposite, that the weightings are the same but don't suit the different style of football. With the current scoring system, higher DE% and more marks is meaning they're approaching the 3300 target a lot quicker. So in a close game, giving the big points to the big moments (eg Buddy went from 57 to 81 with that goal) means they're literally stripping those points off everyone else to keep it close to the 3300.

Just my thoughts.

That's probably true. There's been a few games where we've known the total has reached 3300 with a few minutes to go and we've seen points taken from players who aren't touching the ball to get points for the ones who are.
