Re: Using math to rank all teams in the four major sports

Like they said in the video, that 86 year gap hurt their standings. You guys are assuming I watched the video. I just fast forwarded to where I saw them actually give the team ranks. I don't give a shit about their methodology, it sucks. They all suck. Of course some of the rankings are accurate (C...

Except pre Super Bowl Champions were not counted as champions.
I said "how long did they go without a Super Bowl win" so I'm not sure of your point.
Pat's yes, but the things they took into account and things they didn't count, hurt Green Bay and the Bears.

Wait, Patriots at 28? Ok, this one is beyond futile, it's just moronic.
But how long did they go without a Super Bowl win, or without an MVP? They took lots of things into account. The video explains it.

Re: Using math to rank all teams in the four major sports

recency bias That is debatable as to what that should mean. Twins have 8 playoff trips in the last 28 years with only one playoff series win. 28 years. That's not what I would call recency. Redskins perfect example. They have been one of the bottom three franchises since before my 23 year old daugh...

So if you're going with multiple world series victories, that's why the Phils are average. That apparently balances their most ever losses of any franchise in the world.
And why are the Twins ahead of the Red Sox on the list?

Phillies are 27 out of 30 in winning percentage.
Yes, we know they suck. Why the need to pile on?

Is it because the Twins suck too?

That's rhetorical. Don't answer
My team is #8, but only won 4 World Series. Twins are #21 with 3 World Series which includes the original Senators.

How are the Phils middle of the pack?

Has any other professional franchise IN THE ENTIRE WORLD even joined the 10,000 losses club with them yet?
Braves, Cubs, Pirates, Reds and the Cardinals are 3 away

They are ending as 5-600 farmers go bankrupt each year and the corporate farms take over their land. It's too expensive for the small farms to stay in business. I agree with MJ.
