Functions have been added to fitzRoy to scrape and analyse AFLCA coaches votes.
fetch_coaches_votes- returns all AFLCA coaches votes for given season/s, round/s, and/or team’s matches.
calculate_coaches_vote_possibilities- returns all possible breakdowns of coaches votes between two coaches, given a data frame like the one returned by
fetch_coaches_votes function accepts 4 arguments. The
comp arguments are common to the core
fetch_* functions as per the Main Fetch Functions Vignette.
season- the season or seasons to return data from. If NULL (the default), will return the season that matches
round_number- the round to return data from. If NULL (the default), will return data from all rounds
comp- the competition to return data from. Must be one of “AFLM” (default) or “AFLW”. Not all data sources will have AFLW data.
team- the team/s whose matches to include. If NULL (the default), will return data from all teams.
The following are some examples of ways to scrape the AFLCA coaches votes. Firstly, coaches votes can be retrieved for a season (or an array of seasons).
We can return just one round instead of the whole fixture.
We could also return coaches votes for matches including a particular team.
Combining these, we can return coaches votes for a single match.
calculate_coaches_vote_possibilities function accepts two arguments.
df- a data frame which requires column names
Coaches.Votes. This can be returned from the
fetch_coaches_votesfunction. The votes can only be from a single match.
output_type- the way to present the results.
"Coach View"Will provide a list of data frames with possible votes by coach.
"Player View"will provide a list of data frames with possible votes by player. See the examples section for how these data frames look.
The following code will return the coaches votes for a particular match, then find the possible coaches vote breakdowns.
The following code will create a data frame manually, then find the possible coaches vote breakdowns.
