Re: Player Survey Results - London Irish

Well, I think I got something wrong. I said "if you don't really know how a player did, put him down as a 3". Which may mean players who otherwise might be marked low by those who actually watched them and could form an opinion would be bolstered by all the 3s.

I said next time out, if you don't know how a player did then just don't fill anything in. So a player might only get 10 votes, but if they're all 2s, then his average is 2. If he gets 10 2s and 40 3s under the scheme I set out, then his score is 2.80 which has inflated his score.

People have commentated how no-one really scored low in the London Irish results, I think maybe without the 3 default, we'll see a few more swings.

There's going to be a few adjustments in the initial stages (that's part of why I wanted to start ASAP). For example, I remembered we used to rate the referee as well, and we'll be doing that from now on. Some refs scored 4, honestly!

There was a suggestion we should also rate "Game management - the use of substitutes, the timing of them, the tactics, maybe changes at half time". I'm not especially keen on this but happy to include it and see how it goes. What do people think?
