I'm out too, great conversation, but it feels a bit too hostile in here now.
I love the discussions and the work everyone puts into these things. I don't see the problem in discussing ways to potentially improve them.
My problem when using these stats to compare players from season to season based on an adjustment to the league average goals is that they have no idea how the increased difficulty would hurt the players on an individual level. If it drops from 5gpg to 4gpg then goals became 20% harder to come by, but I don't see those numbers being distributed evenly.
How much that could throw off the numbers? I have no idea, but it seems like a pretty big sticking point to me. I could very well have no idea what I'm on about.
