Re: Are the Refs more bias today than in the past?
- I had know idea this was such an difficult stat . . .but sure enough.
However, I also noticed that PF has pretty much been in decline over
the past 25 years from consistently above 2000 per team to mid 1700
currently. It seems likely that this corresponds with the lower
scoring out put and I wonder if player value rating should give
greater weight to foul drawing ability?
