Ten Thousand Views

Well 10,000 views in less than 3 months is quite impressive. It really does go to show how much people are affected by this and maybe, just maybe, EA will actually do something about it...

...but i'm not holding my breath.

Thanks to everyone for all your comments and contributions to this blog.

  2. I agree that we as customers have the power to make something happen , not easy , but we are living in an era were the internet is a very strong tool , some years back people from different countries would have not been able to be here discussing anything but now we can and the 10 000 visits in this websites has an important meaning ,i think EA at some point will realize that the momentum in fifa 13 is too much , they will try to tweak it down a bit but we have to continue telling persons about this blog and make them 100% concious of what FIFA has become , its all about money ,our first purpose must be that maybe.. just maybe EA work a way were good players feel rewarded for actually being good and EA gets their money all the same from their product , this is all about greed , im pretty sure that EA is more than happy about their yearly turnover from selling millions of copies of FIFA so why push it and put momentum in the game so that the bad players will not lose the interest in their product ? Im sure this place is the place were people can make their point and show they are angry , to begin with we must make this known to EA and if things dont change in FIFA 14 we should boycot and not buy the game , Fifa makes no more sense the way it is , we love football and competition but what we have in this game right now is just a joke , this is our only way to maybe make it change.

  3. Hi, sorry for my terrible english, I am publishing an italian blog about momentum and scripting, so I've searched on Google and I've found yours. Please do not publish my comment, the site is not ready at all. So I only want to let you to google translate this page, maybe it could help you: http://fifamomentum.wordpress.com/teorie-algoritmo/.
    When I'll finish the work we can link each other, what do you think about it?
    So please do not publish the comment and reply commenting the page I've linked to you.
    Thanks!

    1. that thing always happens to me! win like 5-10 in a row, with players and 50-50s always going my way, then next day, lose 5-10 games by scores of like 2-1, 3-2, or the 80th minute plus equalizer from a corner or cross.

      This process keeps repeating itself for me, so when I win a lot i expect to lose a lot soon after, even though i play exactly the same.

    2. Spot on! Happens all the time for me too.

      I consider myself an average FIFA-player. I do a few tricks, but is generally hard to beat when I really focus. I've tried everything and even calling EA's support. They just deny that scripting/momentum exists. I was even recommended by them to switch from PS3 (some models apparently had some Blue Ray drive issues...) to Xbox 360 because of the possibility so install the game on your Harddrive for better in-game performance. So I did - and it helped..! Well, at least untill I reached 3rd div. in H2H seasons with my brand new Xbox Live userprofile... (Don't care about FUT. Feels 2 childish for me.) I raced up through the divisions with ease! As soon as I got there all the same shit started happening to me as on the PS3. The rest is history who all of U has described better than I can...

      Now I struggle with losing streaks getting and sometimes getting relegated way down to 6th div. Feels like I have no control... Im fed up - and often just quits games where I feel cheated by EA. Life's too short for that... and I couldnt care less with (un)beaten records. To me FIFA is now just a kids game that every 12 yo dreams about is laying under the christmas tree. It's a real shame - cause the game has potential to be so much more than that... (For the record: I'm 39 yo)

  6. Hi mate. Im trying to get a few heads together to start pooling some ideas of what to do next. I have tried to raise the issue countless times on the ea forum but the rules of the forum keep everyone isolated and stops them from coming together.

    I have been talking to chuzz (a well respected member of the community - runs the website: chuzzz.com) He confirmed that the match intensity table is in fact real and is accessable for anyone to view with the correct tools. He has also agreed to set up a website where all this information is available and where people can post ideas/suggestions and share experiences. Let me know if you are interested in taking part, i feel you could be a valuable member. This cannot go on any longer, EA have made hundreds of millions of pounds under false pretenses. I believe this is a fraudulent act and they stand to lose more than just a few pack sales.

    If we can get everyone together then we will be a much stronger force. Is there a better way for me to get hold of you?

    Cheers

  7. Hey,
    I've suspected FIFA games incorporated this for ages now, glad I'm not the only one. I thought it may interest you that in Fifa 06 there is a visible momentum bar (shown alongside score bar) which shows your team 'momentum' and therefore performance. I always suspected that this feature was developed in the later games but the momentum meter was hidden from view.
    Keep up the good work but I wouldn't expect too much!

    I link you a Fifa 06 Gameplay screenshot. The momentum bar is the two yellow dots next to the team names in the score bar

  14. You have my support guys , Im also telling more people about this blog and i agree fully that we have to come together , i have grown up loving football video games but this is not what i have grown up to love , this is a fraud , i am of the idea to push foward the idea that momentum is taken away from the game all of it ! and keep only the scripting that is related to mistakes done by players in shots , pases , goalkeeper saves , interceptions , tackles etc ( to divide good players from less good players , every player must have a possibility to do a mistake depending on a percantage which is decided by his attributes and how good he is , this plus the situation he finds himself on the pitch , for ez xavi is a better passer than for ez a player from seguna division so he must have a lot less chance to give a bad pass than the other player ). On the same reasoning falcao must have a lot more chance to score than other lesser attackers , we want these things to make the difference and not the momentum which decides if falcao is going to hit the post or score.

    We want a real game engine, If EA was capable to put in place an engine were a rather complicated momentum system works than they must be able ( and have the funds ) to do what we want , the days were people discused if momentum was in the game or not are over and now every one knows. Something went wrong within EA cause in the past they had momentum in the game in a rather hidden way but they tweeked the momentum up in a way that now its too obvious and everyone has realized it , they taught they could continue to capitalize with it in order to give everyone the chance to win indipendently from how good or how hard they try so that the bad players in fifa will keep their interest and keep buying their product , this is greedy mentality and shows a lack of respect in us costumers that bought the game because we taught it was a football video game were you can compete . We must also make it clear that we dont want it tweeked down but we want it to go away all together !

    The slightest hint of momentum from now on will be noticible because people have had so much of this joke that they can even give lectures about it! All the elements and factors that help any team over the other in any given time in the match must go, we want compete between us , we want our players and the way we play and the tactics we use to make the difference but not a false state of joke momentum that we have right now , lots of people and i mean lots ! of people are very angry about this , we have to reunite them and show we are not stupid numbers, People must be respected , After all if EA or any other company treats its costumers this way then they are destined to downfall. We dont want football games to end , we want them to be what they are ment to be. We want EA to take their piece of cake from selling millions of copies of Fifa ( if they stop this joke we have now , cause i and many others will stop buying it if things remain as they are ) and we have our football game were we and the decisions we make in it make the difference. Lets Stop this offence to our intelligence , to us as customers , to football and to Sports in general.

  15. Hi,

    Thank you for this blog, I learnt many things. But something is bothering me; are you sure that putting crappy 47 ratings players on the bench would affect "handicap" or "sripting?

    I thought of way to test it but I don't have the coins: you could try to play 10 games with a good silver team and a killer bench with Aguero and so on (maybe a couple of IF gold) and then ten match with a killer team but a crappy bench and compare the result. The silver team is likely to have a much better overall rating than the good one, and we could determine if it's the rating that matters or the players on the field (or the guy behind the controller ;-) )

    Or maybe you already know the answer?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Putting the lower rated players on the bench allows you to have higher rated players in your first team but still keep at a low star level. For example with my squad if I add someone rated about 70/75 on the bench it adds another half star to my rating. So yes it would affect the "scripting" in a negative way by not having low quality players on the bench.

      Maybe that test is something that someone from the community could try I, like you, probably don't have enough coins to test this without selling my squad which i am not particularly keen on doing now the market has crashed.

  16. i keep spamming the EA sports facebook pages with how much scripting ruins the game, it amazes me how many people actually are still longing each week for new FUT packs. they actually think that 1 extra point on someone's overall rating will help them and they get even more upset that their favourite player doesn't get an IF, it's baffling. Someone should sanction IQ tests on all of them, I'll bet there won't be a whole lote over 80 ;p

  17. Have just read through all of your posts and you have completely changed my view on 'scripting' from myself believing it was just an excuse for losing to becoming almost certain that it does in some ways exist. I have had incredible luck on packs in this fifa and the previous one. On fifa 12 i got messi and walcott (through spending coins not real money) and on this fifa i have had an IF fabregas and aguero. Each time through my own stupidity I have ended up wasting all the money I have got from these players on packs and so losing it. However there is a reason I did this. Each time I made incredible teams with the coins I earned, but yet would lose alot of matches. I will use fifa 13 as my example as it has stood out the most for me. I used the coins from aguero and IF fabregas to make several teams including a spanish 352 passing side, a 4231 Prem side and lastly, through frustration, a 5221 pacey brazilian side, with each team containing quality players such as neymar and iniesta. With the spanish side I began very well enjoying my games and winning convincingly, however I then went on a run of consecutive losses in which I simply lost to cheap and dramitcally worse (but pacey) teams. I sold that team through frustration and moved on to an incredible prem team with which I also lost to cheap sides. The same happened with my brazilian side, altho this could have been due to the fact that I play passing possession football and this team did not suit my style. I am a decent player, so it was a surprise to lose to these worse teams and especially as in most games I had 60% possession aswell as many more attempts on goal yet still lost. You may be wondering why I told you about the players which I got in packs. Well its because the reason that I then spent my coins all on packs each time was because I still felt I needed better players. I did this but this time got no luck and having not played UT for a couple of months i started agin this week and made a cheap Bundesliga side in 4441: GK weidenfeller RB pizscek CB howedes CB badstuber LB alaba RM shaqiri CM holtby CM Gundogun LM Schafer CF van der vaart and St Huntelaar. To my surprise I began very well and was winning many games despite playing stronger teams often, however yesterday I added IF holtby to my team instead of Normal holtby and despite playing teams nearer my teams ability, I went on to lose all of my 6 remaining games in division 1 to get relegated despit only needing 2 points to survive. In each game I missed chances which I would usually score without even having to think about and at times my players felt useless, with IF hotlby not feeling any better than the normal one despite having significantly better stats and my whole team generally feeling nothing like the same team which I had been playing so well with. I will try again today playing with this same team with and without IF holtby.

  18. I have a theory about scripting and why it is in the game. I believe that Fifa basically forced themselves to put scripting in the game becaus of their own errors. For EA UT is great right? Because they earn so much money from it as ppl want to buy packs to get better players as they believe they will play better and win more because if it like you (wane) have already said. However if a UT player decides to throw a ton of money at the game, no matter if they dont play many games pr arnt even any good at the game, they will get an amazing team because they are not losing coins from purchasing packs through money and so are always making a profit. Now, if a player spends alot of money on any game, they obviously intend to spend alot of time playing it and so will be at least a reasonable level of ability at the game. So no matter if they are still not particularly good, this player who has spent ALOT of money on packs will get an amazing team and so have a clear advantage over most ppl they play. For EA this is a disaster as it means that players who play the game alot and spend time grinding out results and planning out teams but spend no money on packs will still not have as good a team as someone who is prepared to just chuck money away at the game. This is obviously going to anger the player who is not prepared to spend real money but plays the game alot and works hard on getting better as he has no chance when playing these incredible teams. EA had removed the part of the game which would match a player up with another who has a team at a similar level and so they had to introduce/increase the amount of scripting/momentum to keep players interested in the game who were always being beaten by those with better teams as it meant that despite having a much worse team, they could still beat those incredible teams with TOTY and TOTW players (which had been made by those who had spent lots on packs) beacause of scripting. This meant that players could still do well at the game even if they did not want to spend real money (which many dont).

    This means that through creating scripting GREEDY, SELFISH EA can have the 'best of both worlds' by keeping as many customers as they can interested in the game as they dont lose all the time, while also keeping the option to spend real money on packs to get a good side and so overall enticing more people to buy packs and so earning more money.

    Its all just about money for EA. And unfortunately, I feel that the only way they can ever give themselves the chance to remove scripting from the game is by removing the option to spend real money on packs in UT aswell, which we all know they will never do....

    I appreciate if anyone read all of this as I know it goes on alot and turned into a bit of a rant. Sorry this goes on so much haha, but if u are not up for a mammoth read the last 3 paragraphs pretty much sum up my point.

    Do you agree? Reply with your thoughts on my point if you wish.

    2. I think thats a good point. The game is ruined by essentially being fixed. I dont get much time to play fifa but when i do i get beat by a team where all that is needed is button pushing. The games a.i has already determined whether or not your going to win. It happens with my online pro where the computer players are invincible and my pro club loses because of "form". If the game is fixed half the time then ea should be legally obliged to inform customers otherwise its fraud.

  20. So... I thought of building this team http://www.futhead.com/fifa/squads/5101036/ it's total ''teamrating'' would be 77 (thats 4 starts,right?). Would I get past the handicap/scripting? 2 bronze 3 silvers and the rest gold. I have 1 non rare who goes by the name of Caulker. And if you don't think I can play the system with this team do you know any way else. I'm thinking about putting 40-51 rated bronzez on the bench so I could keep the team rating to a 4 star or 4.5 star team. Pls respond and keep the good work up! /Sweden

    1. Its a possibility but I think the right side of your defense could get exploited because of the quality of players there. You can go up to 4.5 stars from what I have tested but without the community trying different tactics we won't know for sure what works.

  23. Honestly guys its so bad ive noticed something else. I bought some packs the other day during a happy hour. As usual I didnt really get anyone good, only a santi cazorla (wow!). Anyway I played a few games and ended up winning about 4 or 5 in a row, to the point where u feel like ur invinsible, urteam is making runs, no dodgey first touches etc. So i go on the next day and my god Ive honestly lost 8 games in a row now, maybe a draw in there somewhere. I think EA have put in a system where if u buy a pack u get rewarded with wins. We all know the result is near enough decided before the kick off anyway.

    Anyway like i said before anyone who wants to prove scripting then try playing seasons, I feel hardly any scripting in that game mode and Ive won the division 1 title now so dotn really see a challenge playing it anymore. I like the idea ofultimate team and building my own little team, its so sad they have to ruin it though!

  24. Hi there, I represent a large number of veteran FIFA players and we all agree that there is something very wrong with ultimate team and the ethics of EA. We really appreciate your work to bring the "scripting" issues to light and bring them to a large audience.

    I hope that we can gather enough support to the point where EA can no longer ignore the disgruntled fans and bring things back to the way they were before they figured out how to drain money from the pockets of the fans of their games.

  25. I, like the last poster completely agree and support what you're doing.

    I have played football games for a long time and can notice the inconsistent performances more then ever!

    I'm going to attempt your squad without a manager, see how I get on, then report back.

    It's a shame that EA have no real competition when it comes to football games these days and they're taking advantage of that.

  26. The momentum in Fifa is an absoloute joke, I've gone from division 2 & a point off promotion to division 1 to barely being able to stay up in division 5, I played 2 games this morning, both which I lost 2-1 after having 65% possession & double the amount of shots, if its not losing to some of the softest and stupid goals Ive ever seen, I'll concede an equalizer in the last few minutes from a corner with my 6 foot plus defender getting out-jumped by the smallest player in the pitch.
    I really dont know what to do, Im sick of losing to players I'd normally wipe the floor with, especially when they do those stupid celebrations as though they've scored a worldie when they get a tap in or gift of a pen.

    fifa 13 is unplayable

    All beauty, all fireworks, but when the manipulation starts, you know you are not playing a "fair" game.
    No one likes that. And each day more and more people notice and discover this crappy "secretly hidden feature"

    Open your eays EA. You would still make loads of money with a fair game.

  29. Hi I decided a couple of years ago that I was gonna get good at either fifa or CoD and after being introduced to ultimate team I chose fifa.
    I quickly became addicted to the whole earning coins and buying better players but I noticed that I'D got better at the game until I had a lot of high rated players and even worse with in forms.
    I ended up having a silver team which I peformed much better with.
    That was fifa 12 and I think fifa 13 is even worse because it doesn't even seem like there's any sort of system it seems completely random.
    It's so frustrating I don't even know if I'm any good at it or not.
    I have ibra, neymar, if. ronaldinho, thiago Silva etc all on 9 chem and sometimes I get beat by low budget teams with 50 chem who play like Barcelona.
    the amount of 45 and 90 min goals is ridiculous too, I'm sometimes embarrassed to score them cos of how the opportunity arose.
    you have players bumping into each other and defenders mysteriously moving behind opposition without moving there legs in order for them to head it in off the corner.
    Thing is if it's about how teams would play when they are a goal up or down why can't that just be left to the person behind the controller cos if I was a goal down with 10 mins left I'd try harder I don't expect extra help.

    so so frustrating and becoming a complete waste of time

  30. Momentum scripting is an annual FIFA feature, been in there for years. I usually pick up the game when I have a bad cold in the winter for a week or so... fun at first, then when I find myself doing things like holding the ball in the 43rd minute because I want to attack with the 45 minute boost, or allowing the home team in a cup tie to make it 2-1 because I know it'll be super easy to use the trailing team boost to pull even 2-2 and go home with 2 road goals in hand... 'gaming the system'... that's when I know I'm done for the year.

    It's an awesome series, but the momentum scripting is a bit of legacy code I sure wish EA would kill off.

  31. Good to find a blog like this. Nice to read from a group of articulate and well-reasoned posts about an issue that is ruining a game I have loved for many years. It feels like a game has been taken away from us. I keep saying "EA, we're in the game." I posted a couple of threads about this in the EA forums, only to have them locked. Here is a snippet of my view:

    -----

    As with all sports games, online and offline, consistency is key. Unfortunately, the game dynamics in FUT 13 are inconsistent and they are inconsistent in an insidious way: the more effort you undertake to improve your team or your own game, the more likely events will occur to even out the terrain. Many threads have been posted with observations about how in-game events and player reactions change for the worst as teams improve.

    That would be OK if it were an explicit game feature that was clearly communicated. However, given that EA would like us to spend coins and actual currency to buy/trade for better quality players and keep them in ideal formations and positions, these inconsistencies end up being a betrayal of the implicit contract a gamer enters with a game developer: if I spend time, effort and resources to improve gradually, the game should repay that commitment.

    If EA wants us to expend the effort, time and our own resources to craft our own "ultimate" teams, then the fruit of that labor should be visible. Unfortunately, the "better" a team gets, the tougher it gets to enjoy the game due to the inconsistencies.

    That is all. Hopefully, the more rational minds out there know what I am talking about and EA takes notice.

  32. Very interesting stuff, I always had the idea scripting was there in Fifa, but lately this has become more clear to me.

    Let me start of by saying I'm not a good Fifa-player, I think my record is something like 210-80-205.

    I play in a competition where we have these rules for a team: min. 1 bronze player, min. 5 silver players and the gold players have a max. rating of 85. Only silvers on the bench.

    When you create a team like this, your team rating will be between 4 and 4 1/2 stars.
    I have more than enough coins, so my team has a lot of the silver and gold IF's in it...

    When I play with this team in seasons mode (where you play against 5 star teams most of the times), I always feel my players react quick, passes are fluid, CPU defending is solid etc. etc.
    But when I have to play for the competition (and meet a team with simular stats), for some reason my pass ratio goes down and players who are normally fast as lightning are suddenly sluggish as hell...

    There is no more fun for me in FUT, and I decided to give up FUT.
    BUT then I found this forum yesterday, and while reading I decided to give it a go.

    I have created the following team: UltimumMomentum ;-)
    http://www.futhead.com/fifa/squads/4897352/#

    * Non rares (as much as possible)
    * 99 chemistry
    * 65 silvers on the bench and one 66 to get the rating to 3.5 stars (so it will be less then the teams I meet in competition).
    * For online seasons mode, I replace my bronze player with a non rare gold (Sissoko)

    For now, I have played 4 games and won 3.
    In one game, I had a cheap penalty when I was 1-0 down and got 2-1 up and my opponent missed an easy header in the last second of the game.
    In the last game (promotion to div1), I had the Ultimum Momentum for now. I had no intention of blocking the keeper, but IF Weidenfeller decided to throw the ball against my player in the 45th min.

    I'll keep you posted ;)

    One more question though:
    How did you find out the facts that influence the momentum (for example non rares)?

  33. I have been playing footy games since kickoff on the spectrum. I am a veteran gamer. Scripting is ruining ALL football games. It's obvious and clearly designed to encourage poorer players to pay as they can win the odd h game. Remember the old PES games were it was down to your own skill? EA are robbing people and they need to be exposed.

  35. I've had enough of this stupid game.
    I KNOW i win when the game lets me, and i KNOW i loose when the game makes me do stupid mistakes. A game is supposed to be fun: i only get angry playing this (if i loose) and get "ok" if i win ("ok, the game let me win, wooo").

    Online is over for FIFA 13, and FIFA games are over until momentum is removed. I only bought this for the online play, i regret it, and surely won't buy 14.

  36. Hello,

    I was considering starting a blog about the same thing, however I've come across yours.

    I just tried your idea of keeping the team rating to around 79 and less than 100 chem in FUT. I also find that seasons doesn't seem to contain quite so much scripting.

    I find it amusing that EA have come out and said that they have removed the momentum mechanic from recent releases. Unfortunately EA always do this sort of things with games, as a total newb would you continue to play a game where you lost 4/5+ to nil in every game?

    - In their racing games the player behind gets a significant boost to catch up.
    - They took over Ultima Online and ruined the game totally, the game become item based and therefore removing a lot of the skill and timing needed. Funnily enough I think you can pay real cash for these items now.

    My two cents on the issue is that the game:

    - Is pre-determined in a lot of ways.
    - At certain intervals of the game it becomes significantly easier to score, generally my experience is a goal in the late 80s and then an equalizer in the 90th followed by scoring two ridiculous goals in extra time (never just one..)
    - You will also notice your record be like this W/W/W/W/W/D/L/L/L/L/L.

    I for one will not be purchasing the new FIFA until it's been fully tested, if found to have this level of scripting.. they can get lost and my money will be spent elsewhere, I wish more people would do the same.

    If scripting truly does not exist then please explain to me why a few things happen.

    1) after a shot the ball bounces to the opposite team's player even whilst he might be out numbered 5 to 1.
    2) Why is it my defenders always run into the back of the strikers? (as in the striker acts as a blocker so he cannot get to the player with the ball)
    3) Why do my defenders run into each other?
    4) Why do my players touches and passes go astray in certain parts of the game and no it's not one player it's the entire team.

    This video cracks me up

  38. this is the worst part of the game by far, completely ruins the fun ! So much that it's not even subtle, for example playing a game earlier, winning 2-0 comfortably.. last 10 mins, each time my player got the ball in their half i press sprint and just stops to a crawl pace, leaving the ball to the opposition.. all players with full fitness&morale, with average-decent pace so not like they were tired.. it was like I knew exactly what was going to happen and no matter what I did with the players and how well i was doing things were just behaving weirdly, unusual touches, players stopping dead and just ignoring their attacks.. then guess what... an unrealistic deflection and a last minute header = 2-2 final score.. complete scam.. This is also after winning div 1 yesterday with a streak of wins, followed by several losses today without me playing any differently and dominating possession and shots.. very unfair that it is not just two people competing and the best man win ! i understand the concept of making it more fun for the less talented but that's what the divisions are for surely to make it equal opposition in each league.. winds me up a treat !!!

  40. the scripting is an absolute disgrace in seasons mode, it is structured in such a way that it has the potential to drive a person insane from anger. anyone that can't see it then they haven't played enough games yet

  41. Lets keep showing our dissapointment and anger ( an understatment probably ) and than what we should do is send this link to EA , lets wake them from their sleep and arrogance , everyone of you reading go to customer care and live chat and send the link of this blog and tell the person you talk to show this blog to their team, this will give them something to think about and show them we are not just stupod numbers , we love futbol and what they are making of it is a disgrace , if they dont fix this up they have to forget about us as customers , continue to tell people about this blog also , than if things dont change in fifa 14 we should start to boycot what is a joke of a game right now , things have to change.

  43. 5-2-1-2

    Of all the '5' formations, this one is used least in fifa 2013 free download. Another formation that requires a better than average center forward - mostly because the majority of play is going to come through the middle. Basically your center forward is backed by 2 CM's, while he supports the 2 strikers. When using this formation, build your team with counter attacking in mind.

  47. I have been playing footy games since kickoff on the spectrum. I am a veteran gamer. Scripting is ruining ALL football games. It's obvious and clearly designed to encourage poorer players to pay as they can win the odd h game. Remember the old PES games were it was down to your own skill? EA are robbing people and they need to be exposed

  48. Scripting/momentum definitely exists in fifa 13 head to head seasons too. I've made it to div. 3 now, but once i've gotten here I find it impossible to get another promotion. I'm a decent fifa player, enough so that even with all the BS going on with my players game after game, I can either get a draw or lose by max 2 goal differential. I know some people mentioned momentum shifts during specific time periods of a match, but my players are outright shit from the start of the game. I'll usually get a couple draws, maybe one win, and the rest losses until relegation from div. 3, then I'll play well enough to be promoted from div. 4, only for the cycle to repeat again. I really hope fifa 14 has less noticeable scripting, otherwise I don't know where I'm gonna get my footy fix.

  49. I respect your views, but I must say that most of them seems to be based on small samples and other questionable methods. Since handicapping and scripting interests both of us, I would really like to hear your comments on some of my blogposts at futfacts.com. I essentially analyse the alleged evidence in favor of the existence of scripting and handicapping and provide some counter evidence.
