Nobby Clarke 2019

Now up to 20 different players with votes.

Getting close to a shorter list of who hasn’t featured;
Smith, Smack, Myers Bags MacNiece Zlarke
But no love for Hooker?

Finishing in sixth or seventh all the time?

Anyone else who’s actually played and hasn’t got votes?

Interesting that two blokes, Parish and Langford, have made it into the top 10.

Weren’t even considered best 22 by the selection committee at some stages during the year.

I’m guessing all the pelicans who say Heppell needs a haircut don’t vote on this

Think they’re voting in the Petula Clark’s

I made a comment right back at the start about how a better indicator of a player’s season effectiveness would give greater weight to players who perform well in games where we win, and less weight to players who pick up low-end Nobby votes on the strength of very few votes in shockers.

There are a couple of ways of doing this but I thought I’d try just summing up raw votes. Lots more people give votes in good performances than for instance last week vs the Weagles.

Up to and including this current week, Heppell just leads from Merrett

I think the voting totals are also indicative of our inconsistency this year.
Not merely the team, but also individual players.

A rough scan is that only Smith(injury), Zlarke MacNiece Ham & Ridley have played this year without getting votes.
I’m assuming Smack gets votes this week
Could be wrong- feel free to check.

You might say that’s a good thing, but I’d be happier if about 10 blokes were sharing the bulk of bests, and 3 or 4 bobbed up with an occasional top 5 performance.
Instead I think there’s a real inconsistency outside the leading half dozen- some strong performances interspersed with falling right off.

Whilst not completely disagreeing with this, another way to look at could be the more players getting recognition/votes means a more consistent team, less real stars to be tagged/stopped and all players a bit better, which is probably better.

Whoever gave .5 votes should be kicked in the nuts.

How do you split people who are tied. Countbacks are crap.
Split votes aren’t counted as split. But when you sum them up, there are ties.

Tell the voter to get ■■■■■■ and stop being a ■■■■■■■ idiot.

Well, I think the person who counts the votes can just make an executive decision and make it easy for themselves.

I’m not sure @deckham understands that what he is upset about isn’t actually what happened.

I just felt like saying ‘■■■■’ and being overall grumpy :crazy_face:

Don’t we all.

But you are grumpy at a voter being a ■■■■■ and not being able to make up their minds and going for half votes. Then poor AN10 has to count the ■■■■■■ things. But that isn’t what happened (well it does, but not in this case).

The votes above are the cumulative results. So at some stage at the end of a rounds counting, AN10 has had a couple of players on the same number of votes for the 1 point and thought, bugger it, they can have half a point each.

Anyway, the only reason I tried to clear that up is to say well done to AN10, and keep up the good work in what is a pretty thankless task.

It’s annoying when you have to rely to the post then select quote to see what the ■■■■ corresponds to.

Who’s the ■■■■■■ ■■■■ who decided that?
