Calculations based on the formula below. Sentiment refers to the total points scored from all of the words in the headline, where positive words count for more (max 5 pts) and negative for less (down to -5pts). These are then multiplied by 20 pts which are automatically allocated for all articles where a players full name appears in the headline.
