Off topic, but sort of in the same realm...
Changing the way GWG's are awarded...
Instead awarding the GWG as it is now (i.e. 4th g in a 6-3 win)
Award it to the goal that puts the team out ahead for good in a win.
i.e. Team a wins: 3-2
Presently, its the scorer of the 3rd g that gets credited...
but if scoring went..
Have the 1-0 goal as the GWG.
Have the 2-1 goal as the GWG.
in a blowout..
A: jumps to a 4-0 lead
B: scores 2 late ones
Award the 1st goal A scored as the GWG.
Basically the goal the put the team ahead without the other team able to catch up gets awarded.
I think that's better than awarding the 3rd scorer in that final example above.
I wonder what that would change in the rankings.. if something more substantial appears with the stat.
PS: i just realized this forum existed YESTERDAY! Love it. How long has it been around??
