At least Holliger has a system rather than just ranking teams

RATING = (((SOS-0.5)/0.037)*0.67) + (((SOSL10-0.5)/0.037)*0.33) + 100 + (0.67*(MARG+(((ROAD-HOME)*3.5)/(GAMES))) + (0.33*(MARGL10+(((ROAD10-HOME10)*3.5)/(10)))))

Our margin and SOS in the last 10 games hasn't been godly, I guess.

Basically it's powerrankings of the last 10 games.

^There's positives and negatives for having a ranking system based on an equation and one based on opinion. Hollinger's equation isn't any better than Stein's reasoning for his ranking. In the end, both are just personal interpretations on why and how the teams are better than the one another, and both have major flaws. It's just another thing for fans to discuss.

Hollinger's power ranking is pretty much the most useless ranking there is... never paid much attention to it... even when we were in 1st place. The system is OBVIOUSLY flawed, as there are too many things NOT accounted for. People will look back one day and laugh at this pitiful joke.

And Ken, no this is not an attack on you or your thread. In case you were about to flip out...

Beetlejuice? Stop the name calling.

Use the ignore feature if you don't like someone, instead of having drama on the forum.

Don't fall for it if you are baited, but he has only posted once here, and I don't really see anything wrong with his post.

Where did he bait you? Just because he doesn't like Hollinger's Power Rankings? I don't like them either. They ARE useless. People WILL laugh at them. I don't see where the baiting is at.

Excuse me if I throw a punch back at someone who punches me. Generally, I've been ignoring his less than astute posts, but he found an opening and walked right in.

Show me the post where he "baited" you.

Even if someone baits you, it doesn't mean you can break the rules. The only person who broke any rules in this thread is you.

what do you think this is junior high or something? no one is going to explain that to you, and if you seriously can't understand it then you won't be on this forum long cuz you'll be banned for continuing to break the rules

Reasonable minds will differ, Nissan. If you don't get it, then you haven't read the jabs that he throws at me whenever he has an opportunity. That's ok. If you want to side with the inferior posters, that's your prerogative. You are the one with ban power here, not me. By the way, why is "Beetlejuice" an offensive name? He calls me "Kenny" from time to time. I'm sure that's a South Park reference.
