Baseball has more parity

Find an hour on SiriusXM NFL Radio when you don’t hear the words “any given Sunday” and you’ll shock me.  The idea the the NFL is somehow more balanced than other sports, giving every team a better chance to succeed is not necessarily true in recent years according to ESPN:

• Which sport has had more parity lately? It isn’t even that close. Over the last six seasons, 36 of the NFL’s 72 playoff teams repeated. That’s 50 percent. But over in baseball, only 19 of 48 repeated. That’s 39.6 percent.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
