Can someone teach me to say "How do you like dem apples?" in Spanish?

My player ratings will go up at MLSS shortly. Oh, and if you're wondering about "The Gap" everyone keeps talking about... they're having a big sale on kid's backpacks this week. Take it away, Michael Azteca Fiscal!

greg, i really dont understand this slide scale ratings system you have. this must be some kind of system they tinker with on the back streets of amsterdam or something.

i mean, does dmbs 7 mean he played better than shea, who also got a 7, but played only 12 minutes? and did our boy f johnson, who got a 6 over 90 minutes, playing two positions, how does that relate to a 12 minutes 7? please, thank you.

Mic-GOL Orozco Fiscal?

Greg Seltzer said...

No, it's now Michael Azteca Fiscal.

How close was that to Mexico's first-choice starting XI? Just curious. Hoping it was (aside from Ochoa).

Greg Seltzer said...

Roughly the same amount as ours, maybe a smidge more.

greg, i have confirmed that these ratings are confusing. at ussoccer.com, one of our famous bloggers is using the dmb 7 to prop up the game he had last night.

dmb was weak last night and it is obvious shea should have been subbed in first.

Greg Seltzer said...

I do not agree. And I do not see this thing you're talking about at usssoccer.com.

And my system is essentially the same system used by Voetbal International, which was my first exposure to player ratings.

its a thread in the tech. section about final thoughts from mexico game. the author of the post is a dmb fan and he quotes your rating, yet interestingly he does not rate beckerman, who also recieved a 7 in your rating, yet a 90 min 7 is suppose to be better than a 45 min 7.

Greg Seltzer said...

Ummm... and? It's his post, why don't you go discuss it with him?

dikranovich said...

all im saying is that someone reads the ratings and sees a 7 for dmb and thinks he played as well or was as importaint to the game as beckerman, when he clearly was not. how can all these people be saying beckerman did not play great? weird is what it is, he was one of our best players.

I don't know dude, I had Beckermann with an above average rating. There's still plenty of people out there who think Altidore sucks. It's out of my control.
