OT - PRO Team Rankings from BizJournal.com

Good Afternoon All,

I was listening to a local sports talk show and they were talking about this article from bizjournal.com that ranked every Pro Sports team based on different stats. ENJOY

Half of a team’s score was determined by its level of success on the field, court or ice. Bizjournals’ formula considered each franchise’s win-loss record, average margin of victory (or defeat), and playoff results.

The other half was determined by a team’s relative success in business. The formula analyzed average home attendance, the percentage of available seats sold for home games, and the increase (or decline) in a franchise’s value from 2007 to 2008. The latter was based on annual estimates published by Forbes magazine.
