# Sports Player Ratings Algorithm

Ok so I went to ask this in the sports section and my question was deleted. So I am guessing that since no one said anything and my question got deleted, this is a math question and that's why I am asking here now. If this is not the right section, please kindly let me know.

Inside the Edge is a sports stats program that ranks the player 0-100. How does Inside the Edge figure out their total or complete number on the player? Does anyone have any idea on the break down? I'm trying to get an idea on how they get their total number. Any information would be helpful.

• It's possible that this question could be asked here, but without any guidance from you about what goes into the program, or even a link (to what frankly seems like a commercial product?), this question runs a significant risk of getting closed fairly quickly. Feb 29, 2016 at 19:08
• Also, for what it's worth, it's "their program." Don't mean to pick on you, but bad grammar is prone to push an iffy question over the edge. Feb 29, 2016 at 19:08
• Good luck finding information on this. Copyright issues galore. Feb 29, 2016 at 19:11
• I'm not hiding anything what was bad with my grammar? Or what did I mispell? As for there math they show what needs to be inserted. Its not so much that I have to something exactly its just a idea of the math problem itself. Also is there a better site to post this on? Feb 29, 2016 at 19:11
• Not a copyright issue per se, is my guess (since copyright doesn't prevent one from knowing the content), but intellectual property, surely. Probably some kind of trade secret. Feb 29, 2016 at 19:12

The total number is probably based on how good the player is at each element.

For example (football):

tackle = 20

dribble = 50

shoot = 90

Then they do (20+50+90)/3

This would then give them an average.

• Thank you this is the best answer I got. So I guess it could come down to all there numbers to make one. but then that just leaves me with the final number maybe.. Or where they tackle from at what speed etc.. (But sooo much more) Feb 29, 2016 at 19:19
• Glad this helped. If this is the answer you were looking for please mark it as the answer (Pressing the tick next to my post)

• Its not the answer I was looking for in general, However it is the best. I was just really looking for a better break down, a better idea, more information. Thats why I tried to put it in the sports section. In other words what are they keeping track of that there software program that they are selling that they do not give to to public or what is the middle equation. Or if I have half the equation what would be the easiest way of figuring out. Feb 29, 2016 at 19:41
