In this paper, we presented a technique to determine player perception (a performance measure) through their online presence (media feedback), which is far more accurate than one determined by traditional means of looking at player statistics. The proposed model is a research-in-progress that takes into account the factors such as toughness of the fixtures, toughness of opponents, the character of players, and et cetera. Feedback from multiple sources such as blogs, newspaper articles and editorials are analyzed to assign a rating to each player that is indicative of their performance on and off the field. A comprehensive perception model is designed for this purpose to assign scores to each feature of performance to not only get an idea of the overall impact of player but also get a sense of how well the player performed in each aspect of the game.
