For several years now, Mark Zarb and I have corroborated numerous innovations and ideas with regard to APBA Football. Mark is the “brains”, he comes up with the conceptual ideas and transforms them into procedures or innovations. I apply those ideas/innovations to my replays to determine the effectiveness. Now, that Mark is playing full-time, we have double the data points to determine if it “works or not”.
The primary reason I replayed the 1969 AFL season was to be able to compare the statistics of the two replays. The following is the four objectives that I evaluated:
Objective 1. Assess adjustment to Fletch67 defensive ratings and Key against the Run.
Objective 2. Assess change to Double Coverage (Keying) formula for both Neutral and Situational downs.
Objective 3. Assess if change to “Situational Down and Distance” chart affected opponent’s ability to convert third down.
Objective 4. Assess frequency and playability of new “Pass Rush Impact” innovation.
