Good to see MLB appearing. Who would've thought- the 2013 AFC South!

Good idea....even just standardizing by the league's standard deviation (of each year's win percentages) could help. As is, it's still a telling piece

This is great. I love how it encompasses different eras and sports. That said, winning percentage is not a great metric for baseball teams: the worst baseball team of 2013 (Astros, 0.320) had a better winning percentage than the Atlantic Division one provided (0.314)

Love it. And possibly a good idea by the home team to put the review monitor next to the student section

I somewhat agree, and this is an important point. In fact, in my initial post (on my blog), I went through several lists of controversial calls, and showed how the vast majority of these happened to favor the home team. Going through these lists, and seeing how nearly every call favored the home team, spurned the idea Read more

Will do something at year's end. Football Outsiders still 20 games under 0.500 for the year, including 6-6-3 in week 11

Hah! I wrote the original post after the Red Sox Cardinals game. I have a feeling I'll be able to add to the list again, too.

Just because the calls are correct by the letter of the law, doesn't mean they aren't controversial. Obstruction was the right call, but would it have been called against the Red Sox at Fenway Park? Same with Pushgate.

Shadetree- Sorry for not being clear there. I wasn't meaning to suggest that there was any correlation: instead, my recollection is that with the 2009-2012 numbers, there wasn't an obvious improvement from the beginning of seasons through the end.

I agree, but like you probably know, Accuscore aren't affiliated with Insider anymore. On its own, Accuscore has always seemed to gimicky on its own, and long-term, their results seem to have been about 50-50 (using experience and results of a google search to make that claim)

Good point on Tuley. I should've mentioned him. Prediction Machine's been featured in a couple of major articles on Yahoo. That site seems to be doing something right.

I feel like there's actually less parity this year, with one team historically bad (Jville) and another historically good (Denver). The injuries component is an important one, as perhaps the statheads can't keep up with all of the people hurt week to week.
