Question of the Week: The double game point of shame. v AMP reminded me of 2014 Nationals DGP between Ironside and Ring of Fire. While they both took an extended time, the way in which they proceeded was quite different. Some stats around the two:
Which was more agonizing — the high turnovers in 2019, or the foul calls in 2014? Any other takes? I think there are a lot of interesting dynamics to compare and contrast.
A: First of all, I’d encourage you to go back and read the oral history of the Ironside/Ring DGP. It gives some nice context, especially since this AMP v. Shame game is much fresher in the mind.
