Too Many Stats

As if we do not have enough stats already, some people have added this new one.

In a report I heard about the Cincinnati Bengals, they were discussing the refereeing crew for their Sunday game.  It was reported that the Bengals had one win and two losses when this crew was on the field.  When I was coaching, we knew refereeing crews that we liked, but I don’t remember keeping track of how many times we won or lost with that particular crew. Apparently, teams are doing this now.

I am sure that somewhere in their overwhelming volume of statistics that teams keep today, they know what the temperature was for each game, whether it rained or was sunny, windy or cold, etc.   They might even keep track of the price of hot dogs at the concession stand.  LOL
