Ten-season record: Half of each team's score was tied to its performance during the past 10 seasons. A team was awarded 10 points for each overall championship over that span, as well as six points for each losing appearance in the title game, three points for being eliminated in the semifinals of the playoffs, and one point for being eliminated in the quarterfinals.

Eight teams, as a result, divided a total of 26 points in each of a sport's 10 seasons. The total 10-year scores for all teams were then converted to a standard
deviation scale.

Landmarks: The other 50 percent of each team's score was based on the number of seasons that have elapsed since the team last reached three key landmarks:

Its most recent overall championship

Its most recent appearance in the title game, whether winning or losing

Its most recent appearance in the quarterfinals of the playoffs, whether winning or losing

If a team has not reached a given landmark in its history, the figure inserted in the appropriate category was the number of years the franchise has existed.
Each team's 10-year totals in the three categories were converted to standard deviation scales.

People LOVE lists! Easy to read, automatic interest grabber. A text based story titled, "Some teams easier to root for than others" is a yawn. "Top 10 easiest to follow teams" makes you want to see where YOUR team falls.

And the list doesn't HAVE to be good or well thought out. In fact, you probably get more interest if the list sucks. smile.gif

ok... long day of packing and then getting home in that heatwave and then reading this forum w/o glasses played a trick on me...

i read "lists" as "lice" (don't ask how laugh.gif ) and given the last topic of discussion... well i guess the only way to describe the look on my face would be
"WTF?????!!! laugh.gif"
