3) I will be **AT** the game again this year. (thanks again, to my brother!) Once I return from the game I'll compute the average and post it as the "Redszone ORG consensus".
I think it would be interesting if someone would start a similar thread on the Sundeck and we can have a friendly competition between the ORG and Sundeck.
Here are the historical prediction threads, if anyone wants to check on their past performance:
- RZ Ws: 81.40 Actual: 72 PTHG: 75 - Pretty Optimistic
2006 - RZ Ws: 76.66 Actual: 80 PTHG: 76 - Slightly Pesimistic
2005 - RZ Ws: 84.67 Actual: 73 PTHG: 75 - Wildy Optimistic
2004 - RZ Ws: 76.82 Actual: 76 PTHG: 67 - Right On
2003 - RZ Ws: 87.88 Actual: 69 PTHG: 63 - Wildly Optimistic
2002 - RZ Ws: 79.71 Actual: 78 PTHG: 75 - Slightly Optimistic
My prediction for 2008 prediction of Reds Wins is 80 Ws.
Another semi-interesting note: Reds Zone has been averaging about 11,000 new topics per year since the second year of your prediction thread. Take a look at those links!
And then this year is 66,000 even...wow!
