@MemphisFlash

Imagine it is just the start of the 17-18 season. Only 10 matches have been played and 2 have ended in draws.

What figure would you show for the Draw% ?

<--[this space intentionally left blank]-->

btw - much as i know you are winding everyone up, i'm strangely drawn to the *game* - lol

[edit] - i'd still love to see that calculation that accounts for games still to be played, as they represent an unknown number and are not referenced anywhere on the grid - love you (smooch)

I am in complete agreement.

This allows direct comparison between seasons regardless of how far into the season you are.

If you have to wait for the COMPLETE season to be played, then you shouldn't bother including ANY figures for 17-18 as they are not relevant. They only become relevant after ALL the games have been played.

If you include them, then all you are doing is diluting the overall % values.

irrespective of that (which i completely concur with), the original graphic of the %ages either was incorrectly calculated, for which a quick *ooops, my bad* would have sufficed, OR an explanation should be given for numbers that don't match their pro-rated percentages, especially when the all important (APPARENTLY) invisible metric is not included anywhere. happy to stand down once a full supporting calculation has been supplied and happy to accept that i probably am an idiot as mentioned a few times...
