100% correctI'm of the opinion this analytics goes to far in regards to our style of play. To much is taken from it as the trends of the game, and we play to suit that, instead of playing to suit the strengths of our team. It infuriates me, I'm not a big fan of analytics in general. I found it telling what Wingard said about it last week, and how we use it. I feel we are to far down the path with analytics. There is room for it in the game, but it can't dictate how we play, which I feel it does.
You don't need analytics to tell you as a footballer, kicking to players 45 metres out, or deep in the pockets results in harder shots on goal, you know that as a footballer. You don't need it telling you where to kick the ball into the forward 50 for better % shots on goal, you know that, or should at any level of football let alone AFL footy.
We should be playing what's in front of us as Schofield says, rather then confusing players at times which I feel analytics does during play.
