Last week we introduced dingoT, a composite team ranking of different sources. Going forward dingoW(what to watch) will be based on that. Initially we ranked 36 teams but going forward we are increasing that to 40. We also ranked leagues in the same post. Below are current rankings(first points):
|R of 16(9-16)||3|
La Liga and Bundesliga get the highest points.(La Liga wins by tiebreaker). But these leagues are not as popular as EPL. Is it marketing? Language? Weather? Well let’s turn to dingoW.
In my dingoW introduction post, I suggested any football fan should try to watch games over 75; as these promised both a high quality match-up and a competitive game(2 factors that drive dingoW). So over a season how many 75+ games are these in each league:
EPL might not have the best teams but it has 7 teams that are top 20. Therefore it has more high quality match-ups than all the others combined. (29 vs 25) Considering we would like to watch good games week in and week out; it is not surprising then that EPL is the most popular. CL season usually has 30 or so 75+ dingoW games and EL just a couple(it was fun last week but a waste of time). 1/3 of all good games in a whole season are in EPL. So I correct my statement on my last post about the best leagues.
La Liga and Bundesliga are the strongest leagues and EPL the most watchable. I will not any league “the best” until they lead in both dingoT and dingoW.
