Yes. (Though I believe this is the first time you've explained what you mean by "averaging seasons"). Now,
how does this result in normalization?
Please remember that the study does not warn against using averages in any way, it warns against normalization and assuming a normal distribution. Human performance will always have an average (mean), typically with the mode being below the median which is below the mean (which is in fact the pattern that AS results follow, since they take the same shape as the actual results).
If we're not going to use the actual distribution of performance, what distribution would you suggest?
