  1. nick allen says:

    one alledged error by the referee and one by his assisant sees his rating go from 95% to a weighted unrealistic score of 85% although still excellent it is still bias against mr foy who mad 1 yes 1 error and that is only in the observers opinion who too could have been mistaken .

  2. Dogface says:

    Hi Nick,

    His competency shakes out at 89.78% overall which is a very good score and entirely realistic given the context of the above generated report – I think the benchmark is around 70% – all reviews are completed with the same methodology so their cannot be any bias against any single referee.

    We will find out the average competency rating at the end of the season and see who is under/over that.

    From that you can draw your own conclusions.

    There may be other guest posters and statisticians who will analyse this data in different ways and weight calls in a way they feel is more appropriate – we welcome this as long as it is applied consistently across all the data.

    As I have replied in a previous thread – these posts are just an example of how our data can be used and intended to draw interest from the statistical sport analytics community – so they are not really intended for mainstream consumption.

    Many thanks for your interest

    I think this will have been one of the best games Foy had this season. Only 5 wrong decisions in total is very good.
    Of course a high scoring game benefits the ref his score.
