Yeah don't disagree with erratic, I'm certainly that but you're not looking to predict anything here, you are using real data to state what grade you are plus what your current % is against the best shooter.

There's no gamble in it Bri, it's hard, factual data that you can with a little work and better maths get give an accurate %, there's no mystic meg predictions here.
