A few days ago I've asked a question, which I deleted after a while as it was closed as off-topic and it wasn't possible to improve it because anyways under current rules it would be still considered off-topic. This was the question:
Any website showing number of headed goals by teams
In recent months Real Madrid C.F. players, especially Sergio Ramos, were showing an outstanding performance in set pieces. So I am curious now how many headed goals they and other teams have scored throughout this season.
A deep google search didn't return me any website showing statistics of headed goals by teams. So the question is: do you know such a web resource?
The help center of the site clearly states that:
Sports Stack Exchange is NOT a forum. Some kinds of questions should NOT be asked here:
- Requests for sources/research
All good, but then shortly after I saw this positively voted question in the questions feed, which requests...
...a resource where author could find the results for some specific historic tennis games...
Now I'm curious why some questions containing resource requests are very welcome, whereas the others are closed as off-topic? Even the ones with resource requests for a very scarce resource that is very hard to find in the web, so give it some time, it could turn into valuable question for others seeking relevant information.
I am dissatisfied both with the fact that those type of questions are labeled off-topic and that some are accepted by users very well, whereas the others (like mine) are being downvoted.
