Updated Site Template

Posted by Neil on January 19, 2012

If you visited SR/CFB today or yesterday, you probably noticed that the site template has been tweaked slightly. The big changes:

  • Dropdown menus - Mouse over the header categories and get a drop-down menu with more options
  • SHARE functionality - Share stat tables with friends using the tooltip at the top of each table
  • Improved table formatting - Including the ability to link to specific tables
  • ...and more!

And as always, you can report ongoing bugs here: Sr.FogBugz.com

Sean Forman to appear on Clubhouse Confidential, MLB Network

Posted by admin on January 18, 2012

I'll be appearing on Clubhouse Confidential on the MLB Network. We are taping this afternoon and I'm pretty sure it will be broadcast tonight. The show typically airs 5:30pm and 7:30pm ET and then probably 8 more times after that. We'll be talking baseball-reference.com and some other stuff.

I'm looking forward to meeting their crew and I've been incredibly impressed with how they are promoting sabermetrics on the show. If you are a stathead, it is time well spent.

Why We Oppose #SOPA

Posted by admin on January 18, 2012

Baseball-Reference.com is blacking out our logo today to make you aware of a law that will soon be before Congress that could dramatically affect innovation and freedom on the internet. SOPA and PIPA will soon be before Congress and these laws will dramatically alter the current balance of power between copyright holders and the rights of users and website creators.

Sports Reference believes that intellectual property should be protected (our livelihoods depend on it), but these proposed laws go way, way, way too far in trying to stop piracy. A sane, reasoned approach to piracy is what is needed, and these laws proposed by the Movie and Recording Industry would reduce innovation on the internet. They want to return to the 1980's. Do you want sports statistics information to return to the 1980's?

How could SOPA and PIPA hurt Sports Reference LLC?

SOPA and PIPA are a threat to Sports Reference in many ways. For example, in its current form, SOPA would require Sports Reference to actively monitor every site we link to, to ensure it doesn't host infringing content. Even a link to an infringing site could put us in jeopardy of being forced offline.

Links to more information and steps you can take to oppose these laws from Google and Wikipedia.

Super Bowl Squares App Available!

Posted by Neil on January 16, 2012

With the big game quickly approaching, our Super Bowl Squares mobile app is now available at the iTunes store and the Android Marketplace.

If you're at a Super Bowl party in three weeks and there's a game of squares set up, this app will tell you which squares have the best chance of winning based on game data from 1994-2010. Also, if you're new to the game, there's a page devoted to basic rules that will help you navigate your first SB squares experience. The app costs $0.99, but will pay for itself many times over if you win the pool.

For more information about its features, as well as links to posts about Super Bowl squares theory, click here.

2011 AV is up

Posted by Mike on January 9, 2012

With the announcement of the All-Pro and Pro Bowl teams, we've been able to calculate AV for the 2011 season, which you should now see on each player's page, or see the top 10 on the 2011 leaders page. We've also added an AV column to each team's roster page so you can see who was great on your team & who was bringing them down.

EDIT: As was noted in the comments below, there was an issue with rookies not being assigned positions in our database and thus not getting AV. Since AV is distributed amongst teammates, this threw everyone off -- but fear not, for it is now fixed!
