I suggest you research your precious stats again there sparky. You have proved nothing other then bein ignorant and disrespectful. If you continue in that vain believe me, I can give it just as you can, even better. I deal with logic far more then a simplistic blathering ham n egger like you, who is subjective in his approach to stats. Grow up junior and learn what the experts think as it pertains to ideal minutes regarding a superstar like Geno! Ask anyone in the ''know'' and see what they say. Or better yet pay attention and LEARN the game. 22 minutes is absolutely perfect .burghsportsguys wrote:crzymike wrote:Some guy thought he was so clever in saying Geno went scoreless in twenty games and averaged 22 minutes per.
It wasn't clever, it was simply a mathematical calculation. Since you were looking at 8 games and 14 games, I decided to look at 20; lo and behold, in those 20, his worst scoring 20 games, he averaged exactly what you want him to average. Seems to be a counterpoint to your constant blathering.crzymike wrote:That doesnt negate the 14 games I sighted as him putting up the most points. He also neglected to mention the games where he scored a point or had a two point game.
I didn't neglect anything. YOU started with the selective data analysis. I just showed you how silly and stupid it is by "drawing a conclusion" from Geno's 20 worst games. My "analysis" was a parody. Only a fool would look at those 20 games, calculate a minutes per game average and try to make a declaration of opinion and try to pass it off as fact.crzymike wrote:I dealt with the issue of him playing too many minutes. furthermore in the eight games he played his most minutes he averaged .75 points per game and went scoreless 50% of those games.
In the eight games he played the most minutes, if he STOPPED playing at 22 minutes, he would have averaged even less than .75 points per game. But apparently, that would have been optimal.crzymike wrote:In the 74 other games including 16 of the 20 he sighted as Geno going scoreless, he averaged 1.35 points per game. He only went scoreless in 22% of those games where he wasnt at around 25 minutes or higher. Big drop off in his overall production when he was forced to play elevated minutes.
Or maybe the team was going scoreless and Geno was forced to play more minutes to try to score goals late? That would be a much more reasonable conclusion, but you don't really deal well with logic.crzymike wrote:I know the stats and he thought he was so smart at sighting those twenty games geno didnt score. His numbers were off, mine werent.
The corn in my stool knows more about stats than me. I love to argue stats and numbers with people like you, because you make me look so terribly stupid and misinformed. It's hilarious. Even funnier is that you're STILL clinging to this notion that my "numbers were off"... they were DEAD ON, even checked by another poster.
Errrr, ummm, uhhhh.... yeah, I'm so wrong.
