Podcast: Episode 2

micRyan and I recorded the second episode of the 'Podcast to be named later'.

We delve into such taboo topics right away to establish our own views on a subject that seems to plague so much online content and scouting reports and online fuel for deep ire, intangibles. Do they have a role to play in our player evaluation methods?

We touched on and expanded in detail about online perception when it comes to scouting/analytics and player evaluation methods, fueled by this quote provided by Bob McKenzie that made the rounds online Friday:

“The flip side of that is I never buy into – I think analytics are probably a really useful tool on a lot of different fronts. I don’t understand a lot of them as well as I should. But I try to. And I’m really open-minded on having more information as opposed to less information. But I’ve never really subscribed to the theory that – and you see this all of the time on Twitter from a lot of people over analytics – they talk about players like they’re garbage. They talk about them like they can’t even play."
