New Math, New Stats For A New Era

That lead may get me sued by the fine people at the kind-hearted Megacorporation mentioned with the utmost respect and honor in the last two words of the title, but it was a mention worth making because once in a great while, we come across a Transcendental Wicked Analysis Toolset (an acronym that demands publication…elsewhere) that helps us get the best — no, that’s flippant and understated — most truest grasp on America’s Game. Or at least it will be such, once My League’s Blackout passes No-Fun-League in their never-ending competition to prevent the greatest number of fans from actually seeing the games command top revenue.

We took a whole-hearted stab at edification with our Official YFSF Record Book Annotation System, but upon reflection we missed the opportunity to design of a framework to model the critical statistic in modern day player evaluation. Read on for a canon soon to be novelized when (literally) ghost-written by Peter George that shall lay waste to such outmoded mathematic models employed by SABR-rattling codgers everywhere: True Grit or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Intangibles.

Visit Flotsam Media and embrace Enlightenment.

  • Wii (meaning mii) is jealous! Congrats, lockland! Just out of curiosity, how does the YFSF site render on the browser? (Opera, if I am not mistaken, right?)

  • Could you translate that into Esperanto, Gerbs? I don’t seem to be able to grasp your syntax in my native tongue.

  • Hudson, grasp? Do not try and grasp. That is impossible. Instead, remember, there is no gerbil

  • Or, if I am to cheat, “Hudson, ekten? ne prov ekten. tio estas neebla. Male, memori, mankas gerbil”

  • AG, get off the drugs, man. ;-)

  • NO! Clutches doctor prescribed gerbil growth hormone close to his.. um.. clutchness.

  • Sorry for the delay in my response, holiday travel, disconnect, etc.
    Yes, AG, it is an Opera “powered” browser on the Wii. The YFSF site does render well, which is nice. It will never be an internet appliance though, unless they improve the interface a lot, sloppy and slow navigation.
    The Wii is a lot of fun though, finally a video game system that can involve everyone.
