Current Simple Park Factor


Only 10 teams above 1000 and 20 teams below. That seems weird.

Shouldn't it be closer to 50/50 or am I missing something here?

No, the overall average should be around 1.000. If there is a team like Colorado that rates at 1.40 then it could be offset by 5 other teams that rate at .92 [( 1.4 + (.92 * 5)) = 6 and the average would be 6 / 6 = 1].
