NUMBERS ON THE SEASON
Gun of the Year



There were 388 times in which a rookie filled a position in the line-ups. In 41 times, rookies were left out of it.


– LINES
Regarding the lines, midfield was the most popular option:


MF, 160 (41.2%)
FW, 139 (35.8%)
--
BK, 69 (17.8%)
--
IC, 20 (5.2%)


If most Guns (13) were either MF (6) or FW (7), there is a good reason for that. Since for 77% of the time, the rookies played in either one of those. The BK, despite being the third choice, only got 1 award.


– POSITIONS
Position-wise, W was the most common choice, and it wasn't remotely close:


W, 94 (24.2%)
--
HFF, 53 (13.7%)
FP, 44 (11.3%)
HBF, 43 (11.1%)
--
CHF, 32 (8.3%)
C, 29 (7.5%)
IC, 20 (5.2%)
--
RO, 17 (4.4%)
RR, 13 (3.4%)
CHB, 11 (2.8%)
FF, 10 (2.6%)
BP, 10 (2.6%)
--
R, 7 (1.8%)
FB, 5 (1.3%)


These choices somewhat reflected on the awards, with:

- 4 being given to players at W (rounds 2, 11-13);
- 3, to players at FP (rounds 3, 14, 16);
- 2, at HFF (rounds 1, 7).

The other position with 2 awards wasn't HBF, though, but Headless' favourite position: IC (rounds 4, 15).

HBF had 1 award (R8), like FF (R5), RR (R6), CHF (R9), and C (R10).

We proposed that everybody should have a chance at the award, so we've established an adjusting factor for all the positions in qooty. There were 7 different AF. It doesn't mean that the highest ARSE would necessarily win.

In 8 rounds (half of the season), the highest DT and the highest ARSE coincided; and in all of them the Gun was awarded to that rookie. In the remaining rounds, twice the Committee didn't elect the highest ARSE. In 1, the winner was not even the highest DT.

Moreover, in 10 rounds, the decision wasn't unanimous; with 3 of those decided by either one or two votes of difference (4-3; 4-3; 4-2).


Fielding Choice by Adjusting Factor

AF 1.05, 147 (37.9%)
W, 94 (24.2%)
C, 29 (7.5%)
RO, 17 (4.4%)
R, 7 (1.8%)

AF 1.55, 96 (24.8%)
HBF, 43 (11.1%)
CHF, 32 (8.3%)
CHB, 11 (2.8%)
FF, 10 (2.6%)

AF 1.40, 53 (13.7%)
HFF, 53 (13.7%)

AF 3.00, 44 (11.3%)
FP, 44 (11.3%)

AF 2.40, 30 (7.8%)
IC, 20 (5.2%)
BP, 10 (2.6%)

AF 1.00, 13 (3.4%)
RR, 13 (3.4%)

AF 2.25, 5 (1.3%)
FB, 5 (1.3%)​


The AF 1.05 won most Guns (5), followed by AF 1.55 and AF 3.00 (both with 3). The correlation between awarded AF and more-played positions was broken by AF 1.40, that won 2 awards – the same as AF 2.40 (2). The last awarded AF was AF 1.00 with 1.

The first 6 awards ended up going to positions with distinct AF. The only adjusting factor that was unrewarded, and it didn't win at all, was the one used for FB (AF 2.25), which was also the position in which the rookies have played the fewest.

I'm not even sure this is supposed to make sense.

From what I can tell (I'm sure a member of the S29 class will correct me):

There's Two Categories:

The Gun-- Best Rookie Qooty Player
w/ Gun Squad-- The Top 20 Rookie Qooty Players selected as a Team

The Torch-- Best Rookie Poster
w/The Torch Guard -- The Top 5 Posters of the S30 Class


Then those two categories combine for the "Rising Star' Award (aka. The SausageRoll). Former winners include PurpleGreenRed AceAndy, Yakker & Elton Johns Wig.

Then separate to the Rising Star Committee (voted by the previous rookie class) is the EKA which is the Best S30 player according to the 12 SFA clubs.
I wish someone explained it this well to me.
