I've never been one for the fantasy leagues,
but from what I hear they track 'assists' (last pass before a goal) 'saves' (for goalkeepers) and shots on goal. I dunno what they've got for mid-fielders and defenders, but it's probably something match-influencing too. Yellow and Red cards of course earn that player negative points, as do other fouls probably.

FIFA does track minutes played, km run and touches. These can safely be ignored, but the last two are sometimes used as proof that a player "works hard" (if successful) or "wastes energy" (if unsuccessful). "Minutes played" might be construed as a measure of confidence a coach has in a player, but is only really used to measure how tired a player is at the end of a season.

This Verizon policy is just like in the Incredibles! People working there will have to find ways around it...

MRS. HOGENSON: [sobbing] I'm on a fixed income, and if you can't help me,
I don't know what I'll do. [blows nose loudly] [sobbing]

BOB: All right, listen closely. I'd like to help you, but I
can't. I'd like to tell you to take a copy of your policy to Norma Wilcox
on...[whispering] Norma Wilcox. W-l-L-C-O-X. On the third floor. But I can't. I
also do not advise you to fill out and file a WS2475 form with our legal
department on the second floor. I wouldn't expect someone to get back to you
quickly to resolve the matter. I'd like to help, but there's nothing I can do.

MRS. HOGENSON: Oh, thank you, young man.

BOB: Shhh! [shouting] I'm sorry, ma'am! I know you're upset!
[whispering] Pretend to be upset.

MRS. HOGENSON: [sobbing]

You are in a maze of UUCP connections, all alike.

Working...
