    Trade him to the Crows for two 1st round picks, they place a high value on defenders.

    Hang on I think I can work this out. Molly fell off a ladder, Superman could not handle Cryptonite, Molly loves StKilda Superman loves Lois Lane - got it, 96
  5. I'm sorry Watson but if you gave me 2 stats for any game I could tell you the result with 100% accuracy. The score for each team. And surely if the stats are good they should be able to predict injuries, modified game plans and improvements in players. Extrapolating what you are saying it is only a matter of enough data. Lies, damn lies and statistics!
  6. OK so why are they so bad at predictions?
  7. So for each algorithm they (people) select the hyperparameter values with the best cross validated score. And if that is not ideal they (people) fine tune for the next test. If data doesn't lie then surely interpretation can. Edit:- Who enters the data? Was it an effective kick/handpass or not? Tap to advantage or not, who decides?
  8. Seriously! What is worth more a goal or a mark a hit out or a hand pass? Someone at CD has made that decision, they have weighted all manner of stats based on assumptions. If it was based on pure data you may see something resembling the ladder, hey that's a good idea. Rate teams based on results.

    Age Ladder

    Sorry, this is an average games ladder, it does show age but it is not in order.

    Why, did you wake up Biff?
  11. The problem with weighting is it can be opinion. Are handballs worth more than effective hitouts? Is an effective 50 metre kick across ground worth more than a 20 metre kick into the forward line? Is a mark in the defensive 50 in junk time worth as much as a mark on the wing? And so it goes.
