Reader survey

Thanks for reading The Arc! The site is still pretty new, only six months old, and I’m trying to figure out how to make it better. It would really help me out if you could complete the brief survey below. Thanks!

The final rounds of 2016 were the lowest scoring in several years

The early rounds of the 2016 season were notably high-scoring compared to recent years. It was thought, including by me, that this could be a result of rule changes, including the interchange cap and deliberate out of bounds interpretation. But by the middle of the year, average scores had drifted down to the level we’ve been used to in recent seasons, and the uptick in the final rounds wasn’t as dramatic as in 2014 or 2015.
