    Those stats also show he had by far the worst shooting percentage on the team. Ouch.

    It was the worst on the team. There were defenders with better shooting percentages. When you look at his career, he's .124 in the regular season......even a terrible player like Cody Jamieson is .161. :eek:

    Chris Hall had him playing a "Steve Toll" kind of role......defence, quick up the floor on turnovers, take the shot if it's there.

    he was good-ish at this...biggest drawback was that he had an annoying tendency to stay out on attack, and, show the exact same issues that drove Wings fans bonkers.

    Peter Jacob's may have the best scoring percentage for a career... he shot 1 to 5 times a year, but scored on most IIRC.

    Searched, he actually had 65 goals in his career, which is twice what I expected, but wiki didnt show shots.

    I was referring to my Peter Jacob's question.

    .094.... I think you might have mis-remembered. :p

    Edit.... the stats page posted by Wingsnut looked fucked.

    If you notice, it says Jacobs had a .094 shot % in his career, but 7 goals on 33 shots. (Which would be .212) To hell with the NLL stats page.

    Didn't even notice all the missing years. The NLL website is so lame. It looks like Pointstreak only records shots dating back to 2005, so that's probably why.

    Minor League Baseball's site is the same way in that it only goes back to 2005.

    Which leads me to wanting to tell this story. A few weeks ago, I e-mailed the International League to ask them if they had a book or a website where I could access some old standings and stats for a baseball book that I'm writing. I was told they don't, and they referred me to a book written in the 1950s to find what I was looking for o_O I bought the book, and it's a great book, but I'm a tad surprised a Triple-A minor league doesn't have a media guide or something available for media (and fans who like stats) to buy. At least the NLL trumps the IL in that department :p

    For a moment there, I thought we were talking about this Pete Jacobs -- http://nll_stats.wttstats.pointstreak.com/playerpage.html?playerid=1628562&seasonid=2890

    He took the last shot on goal for Portland as time was running out in a 14-13 game in the 2008 Cup final. He was only 19 at the time, he played 1 more year in the NLL and then disappeared.

    I see the Knighthawks traded for him before the 2010 season. I wonder what happened....

    Rabil gets talked about way too much for the type of impact he'd actually have on the floor. Now, marketing is another story. I think Rabil is certainly good enough to play in this league. He's better than a lot of people on the boards act like he is but not as good as you'd expect based on his name and the brand he brings. I just think it would be beneficial for the league to have him around again to get a bit more U.S. interest. The MLL is kinda floundering right now, so it would be timely.

    Would be interesting to see if he would even get a second chance since he cried his way out of the western conference then alienated every east team but Minnesota/Georgia and buffalo

    So that leaves SD as an option to market a "star."
