Certainly an interesting project, but I'm not sure how accurate it is.

well, it makes sense, considering their criteria..

bang for the buck

Championships are only 1 of 8 criteria.

The Reds finished 43rd out of 122.

Not that great, but roughly top third.

I'm kind of surprised the Phillies finished as high as they did, since sometimes the stadium experience there can be a bit...nauseating. ;)

it's strange that the Lakers venue rated higher than the clippers and LA Kings. They all play at Staples.

It is strange that the Lakers venue rated higher than the Clippers and LA Kings. All three play at Staples.

Probably has to do with gameday atmosphere.

I never needed any silly ranking system to tell me the Reds were better than those loser teams. :cool:
