# How does Coachstuff work out the game averages?

In coachstuff, we've decided to use the definition of

*the number of games from this season that have one or more stats entered into them.*

Of course, we could've used other definitions - like games with scores on them, or games in the past etc. But each of these has issues - if you use games in the past - well what if you didn't record stats back for those games? All your averages would be out. If you use games with scores in them - what happens when a manager enters a score only - but doesn't do the stats? All the game averages are out.

*The only 'downside' we see to the definition of 'games with stats entered' is the rare case where you might add stats for a game in the future. Then that game would be counted in the averages. But really - why would you add stats to a game in the future. No really, why would you?*
