If you play in a points-based, head-to-head league, I am now your best friend. With the help of daullaz here at the Cafe, I put together a rudimentary study of the impact of scheduling on the outcome of a H2H league's results. Unfortunately, the study only had 6 leagues to work with, and that did not produce enough data to put out a reliable statistic.
That's where you guys come in. If you are willing, here's what I need:
- Names of each team in your league
- Week-by-week scores by team (pts)
- Final W/L/T results by team
You would be able to send me this information either weekly or all at once at the end of the season. That would be your choice, but I would prefer that you send me an e-mail address that I can contact you through.
If I can put together the results of 30-40 leagues minimum, I will be able to publish a reliable statistic that would indicate just how much impact the H2H schedule really has on the outcome of these types of leagues.
If you are interested in contributing, shoot me a PM.
ps - Mods... Can I get this stickied for a few weeks, if it's not too much trouble.
