Ryan ten Doeschate - A Legend in the Making
Has barely posted of late (GCSEs) so am not sure, TBH.
Only Englishman I think anyone could accuse of loving him would be PF - although even there having him in his avatar was merely a result of a WC avatar challenge.
I think it's quite possibly a little heavily biased towards the modern day - there's a lot of average modern day players around and in heady positions, whereas there are guys who batting line-ups have revolved around in the past ranked down the list.
Would be interesting if you factored in some of Goughy's standardised batting averages to the generational divide.

Haha. Strange indeed that I've never noticed before, TBH.
Fair effort by Days of Grace - top username too. Seems maybe a bit biased towards the modern day players - maybe someway of factoring in years played as well as, or in lieu of, just total aggregate runs might be the go to weed out one or two season wonders?
The other issue is that while I think you're quite right to boost players pre 1914, there are several other adjustments that could be made in the other direction, probably for the 1930s (roughly) and the last 7 years - slight downgrades to reflect that they were generally batter-friendly conditions more often than not?
Always good to get a new member who can come up with interesting things to discuss, in any case, so welcome to CW!

That's a great effort mate. Looks very very good. Though I do agree with the others who say that its a tad bit modern-centric. Would love to see improvements when you do get a chance.
