Here's my line of reasoning for the thread title.
Scientists = " Eli Ben-Naim, Sidney Redner and Federico Vazquez at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico decided"
Better = "decided to look at unpredictability of results - how often a team with a worse record overcomes an apparently superior one - as the best measure of how exciting a league is."
Prove That Soccer > Baseball = "Their results showed that the "upset frequency" was highest for soccer, followed by baseball, hockey, basketball and finally American football."
