good to see Miami up near the top... sad to see Toronto so low...

Nashville being that high is suspicious... especially since this year was the 1st year the Preds made the playoffs.

It certainly is... I bet they took year winning percentage, as opposed to games won every year, as the basis for figuring out the average winning percentage (confused? see below)... because the Titans wouldn't've played enough games to make up for the Predators.

For those confused by my above comment...

I bet they figured it out by saying that for example, the Titans had a .750 win% and the Preds had .250 win%, Nashville had an overall .500 win%

instead of...

Since the Titans went 10-6 and the Preds went 12-60, Nashville went 22-66 for an overall win% of .250.

No error... The Titans went to the Superbowl the year they called Memphis home.

yeah, but they didnt put any NFL stats there, only NBA. Thats what I figured, but they only represent NBA stats, 3 years.

Its a good stat but I think the true measure is Championships, especailly since success in the NFL skews this thats why San Fran is number 1 all the years the 49ers won 10 or more games.

Bascially the NFL will bring up or sink you win % depending what they did over the last 25 years.

CFL?

No, otherwise Winnipeg would be #1... well, should be, 'cept some idiot whose name shall never be mentioned again in conjunction with our fine city came in during the mid-90s and screwed everything up, before Dave Ritchie whipped the team back into shape.
