ESPN did their own poll to determine a very hard question of what was the best franchise in America's history. They quantified fan's relations to the team, the owner's honesty and loyalty to the city and fans, the value the team offered in terms of ticket prices, concessions and TV options, and a number of other soft metrics. One of the more innovative objective criteria was a never before attempted financial analysis of games won per dollars spent by fans over the past three years. Green Bay Packers were the best? For all you scientific types, what do you think of the methodology? And for sports fans, what categories do you feel were left out? What I find interesting is that they are attempting the impossible. ESPN wants to quantify that weird, insane, irrational, passionate, relationship we have with our teams. I am just happy by Devils came in at 40.
