So i was going to start with a new spreadsheet based on the 2011 - 2012 season...
What do we suppose the categories should be and the make up of the formula we implement?
Your guess is as good as mine. you started with something, I made what appeared to be improvements, but until I see the results I don't even know if they really are. In any case it's probably just subjective weighting of objective numbers. The heavy stats guys tend to have ways to logically lay out how different factors should be weighted.
