Only 4 Sundays this season. First time in years.
I almost forgot how it used to look, the game. Yes this is a game not a sport.
Sports utilizes statistics and history to measure a player standing and ability first. Like Baseball and Football.
There is no handicapping in most sports. Only win/lose facts. No A's, B's or C's only History. Those trading sports cards with the stats behind them, those were the days.
"Billy, this is Chad Bradford. He's a relief pitcher. He is one of the most undervalued players in baseball. His defect is that he throws funny. Nobody in the big leagues cares about him because he looks funny. This guy could be not just the best pitcher in our bullpen, but one of the most effective relief pitchers in all of baseball. This guy should cost $3 million a year. We can get him for $237,000" ~Peter Brand
The fundamentals are played on the field and the results, though may vary, they do tell the tale. Sometimes we look funny when we play. But the results/facts/win or lose will tell everyone something more than the truth.
"It's about getting things down to one number. Using the stats the way we read them, we'll find value in players that no one else can see. People are overlooked for a variety of biased reasons and perceived flaws. Age, appearance, personality. Bill James and mathematics cut straight through that. Billy, of the 20,000 notable players for us to consider, I believe that there is a championship team of twenty-five people that we can afford, because everyone else in baseball undervalues them" ~Peter Brand
Popularity is a variable with to much impression ultimately becoming a distortion of ones true scope. There is also challenging the admin and simple democracy. This is what will change the game into a sport that's often called a game. Not a game that is always in question about it being a sport or not.
I'm still going to enjoy my rice and beans no matter what the stats are... Food Open +.
