Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

I long for the days when Car Nack used to make the tough calls, and call predictions that no one else saw coming (and then always be right about them!).

Disagreeing with this one would be about as smart as buying marriage insurance for Newt Gingrich.

Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

It may be blasphemous to say, but I'm going to do it.

Car Nack is completely wrong.

Don't you remember kickoff, they specifically said no more penalties.... and they meant it!

So they renamed them fouls and made them so likely to occur that both alliances can give each other a "foul" at the same time. This really is a very ridiculous part of this game and I think its a fair assumption this will make 2010 look like a good game for fouls. At least they eliminated 0 - 0 matches, but I think that some of, if not the highest scores this year will be because an Alliance just racks the fouls up, it's that easy to do.

It's very easy to do, but it's awfully easy to avoid, too. Don't go anywhere near your opponent's key, bridge, or alley when there is an opponent nearby.

Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

Based on the available twitter data through week 7, there were 474 matches (out of 6154) where a team earned more points through penalties then all other sources (teleop, hybrid, or bridge). There were 1317 matches where there were more penalties then teleop points.

There were 12 matches with 30 or more penalty points, with the most being 66 at SWM match 82
