I didn't say you were wrong, just that the stats on their own don't mean anything, particularly when you watch him play. He is not putting ni the effort we have seen in the past, regardless of what stats you use.
You did say I was wrong though. I said that accusations of Mateo being lazy/uninterested are bullshit. You then say that he is "clearly uninterested". This contradicts what I said and is therefore saying that I am wrong.
You also didn't specify that stats don't mean anything on their own
. As your exact words were "try watching the game instead of the stats page". If you had intended to imply that they didn't mean anything on their own, perhaps "try watching the game instead of just
the stats page" would have worked better.
How do you decide that he isn't putting in the effort we have seen in the past? Just for the heck of it lets see the stats anyway
According to Miket12
's mid season stats for the warriors 2012:https://www.nzwarriors.com/threads/mid-seasons-stats-for-each-position.2014/
and according to mt.wellington
's up to date stats:https://www.nzwarriors.com/threads/warriors-2013-stats.10589/page-6
At the time Miket12
's stats were posted, Mateo had played 618 minutes of Rugby League
So far Mateo has played 385 minutes of Rugby League
Mid-season 2012: Mateo ran 21.3 metres every 15 minutes.
2013: Mateo runs 23.7 metres every 15 minutes (Mateo runs 1.58 metres a minute. 1.58 metres X 15 minutes = 23.7 metres.)
That means he is currently average 2.4 metres more than he did at the beginning of last year.
Mid-season 2012: He averaged 1 offload every 51.5 /52 minutes. (12 total)
2013: He is so far averaging 1 offload every 22.6/23 minutes. (17 total)
That means he is averaging more than twice as much offloads as he did in the beginning of last year.
Mid-season 2012: Mateo made 38 hitups. Averaging 0.9 hitups per 15 minute block (38 divide 618, multiply 15)
2013: Mateo has so far made 82 hitups. Averaging 3 hitups per 15 minute block (17 divide 385, multiply 15)
That means he is averaging almost three times as much hit ups as he did at the beginning of last year.
Mid-season 2012: Mateo has missed a tackle every 22 minutes (28 total)
2013: Mateo is so far missing a tackle every 29 minutes (13 total)
The things Mateo has doing worse this year so far are: Errors, Linebreaks, Linebreak assists, Kick Returns, Tries and Try assists.
I didn't even need to calculate that since:
He has made the same amount of errors despite playing half as long.
He has yet to score a try or set one up.
He has yet to make a line break
He has only made one line break assist
He has yet to do a kick return.
In other words, Mateo has only been doing badly in the things that everybody expects him to do well. Thus giving off the illusion that he is uniterested/lazy when in reality he is just playing poorly instead. He has in fact been performing better in most other facets of the game. And therefore, judging from those stats he has actually been more interested / less lazy this year. But the magic just isn't coming.
