How are media scores worked out.
Each day players in the papers collect media scores but how is the value of each report worked out. The value seems to range from 20 to 200 points.
@NewUser97258 It is based on a "sentiment analysis" using set keywords that apply a positive or negative multiplier to the score. But it's impossible to get a negative score, so negative ones are divided and made positive. It's all a bit mad really. If you have time, the best explanation of the system out there is this podcast: https://footballindexguidepodcast.fireside.fm/50
I don't know why they don't just do it on column inches (or word count as it probably would be these days). That's how they used to do it on Sportdaq, the game this is based on.
