This is a new feature on Burgundy Wave. In addition to my player reviews that come out a couple of days after the match, we wanted to give you an opportunity to rate the players on the same scale I do. We will then average the communities score and report them with each of the players in that review. We will keep a running average throughout the entire season.
This idea came from fellow SBNation Blog Cartilage Free Captain. Thanks to them for the idea.
