    Wont pretend to understand how those stats work but that's still less than half the season and he just didn't pass my eye test this year. That is probably the only stat he actually stacks up in though so at least there is that because I'd have said he certainly doesn't stack up statistically and given he also didn't stack up on the eye test for me, he seems the most confusing selection to me. Well... you know other than picking Burgoyne at a position he basically didn't play.

    Not saying Boak isn't a good player because he is but I just didn't think his season was anything special, it was just rock solid. I'd have had him right next to a Cotchin this season of playing below their ability but still better than most personally.

    Still, that's an interesting stat which again, I won't pretend to understand

    Shane Edwards is ranked higher than Dyson Heppell (4th in MVP) so those rankings are worth very little...

    Re: 2014 All Australian Team

    Jake Melksham is clearly the better Jake!

    I do wonder when people come up with these models if they don't check for something like that and if it pops up just throw it all out and start again. I can't think of any criteria you could set to have a guy like Edwards at his best end up ahead of Heppell or Parker in their rookie seasons, nevermind this year when both are both deserving of All Australian selection!

    You could get the most one-eyed ****wit from any pub in the southern states and they'd churn out a better list.

    Yeah I remember Giles along with some other pretty average ruckman were ahead of Jacobs, Sandilands, Lobbe etc at the midpoint of this year.

    With these rankings, they should have a seasons ranking along with a career or w/e because the data is from 2-3 years I think which makes them look very silly at times.

    Even then it can't explain Edwards above Heppell or Parker, they've both been better than he ever has from the first game they played (I would argue probably from under 15s...)

    Basically if I come up with a system that when I run it has Shane Edwards anywhere near those names then I know I don't have a system worth releasing to the public and it's time to make some changes until that can't happen!

    Jacobs > Sandilands

    I'm not sure Brodie Smith really deserved to be in the side, not sure what the other options were.

    Rance is pretty questionable as well given the amount of games he missed.

    Parker is one that comes to mind that was unlucky to miss, not sure who you'd take out to fit him in though.

    I honestly don't know what else that Jacobs could have done to get selected.

    He is a guy who could have been a 2x AA ruckman and will probably never get the honour now because of god knows why.
