    Refs can't stand this.

    I told a kid one time who was whining to me:

    Can't play defense when you're focused on me can you?

    Anyone else surprised by the lack of a certain name?

    Lets see who else comes up with said mystery player!

    FWIW I would have thought that this player was at least top 3, maybe even #1.

    No, but now that you mention it I am mildly surprised not to see his name on there either.

    Hint: This player has a reputation for a bad attitude in games. I've definitely see them be frustrated about a no-call and not get back on defense because of it.

    Edit: I just read all of the article and I guess they excused centers which explains it. However I would like to see if this player would indeed rank #1 if Centers were included.

    They had to discount centers because all of them lag behind a bit anyway, and the data was noisy because of it.

    EDIT: I see you know this. Oops.

    Would he be #1 if they didn't omit centers?
