You posted the stats to make a point but stats are often useless, that’s my point. Let’s say we spent at least twice as much time in the opposition box compared to the rags in that period, then you’d expect us to have many more penalties than themI don't know why don't you look it up?
It would be a really shit way to adjust the statistic anyway. You can piss around the edge of the box for minutes at a time and not get a penalty shout, and you can lump a long ball and have a guy wiped out for a stonewall penalty without touching the ball once.
Clearly these are the 3 best teams in the country since 2009, so it's not a coincidence who's top of the list, but you'd need to be a lot more intelligent about the way you try to standardise the stat and get "who deserves the most penalties"
