Game Theory - Freelund

Recommended Posts

Some of you know that I can't stand the fact this women has a job when her prediction rate of success is abysmal, I mean downright awful, but she's still at it, and I warn ANYONE who plays fantasy (especially DFF) to avoid her "predictions" like the plague.  I watched her prediction of last night's game, and went back and thought you all enjoy just how bad her "prediction" was.

There wasn't ONE SINGLE aspect of her prediction that came true, not a one.

 

Discuss!

If she repeatedly used the term BillsMafia, but still sucked at predictions, would that make her more likeable? 😈

Yeah, but most people picked the Panthers to win.

Maybe her real job is to offer misinformation all in an attempt to make the meaty middle of the distribution curve feel better about their fantasy prowess when the suckers bite on her tips.

 

I mean isn't that why they call it "game theory"?

Theories are derived from material evidence.  What evidence did you see from Week one that had Cam being the 4th best QB in fantasy this week?

Why do you think women shouldn't be able to analyze football and/or make predictions???

Huh?  What does this have to do with her being a women?  I love women, and love the fact that the Bills have the most women in the league working for them.  I have the same criticisms about men, MOST of them are morons as well, but something about her draws my attention, not sure what it is.  ;)

I have now heard multiple analysts refer to this as the first Thursday Night game of the year. Did they totally forget the season opens with a Thursday Night game??

The opening Thursday night game was on NBC.  Last night's game was the first Thursday night game for Fox/NFL network but I see your point.

She is absolutely horrendous. Her predictions are the worst I’ve ever seen. I guess analytics can’t predict any better than throwing darts at a board. 

She's terrible.  She's overly stat minded and doesn't offer anything else that's not stat minded.  I usually turn her off.  I listen to almost anyone else except her and Colin Cowherd.  AND Mike Schopp.

Does .4 mean we lead for 1/4 of game 7 or  almost a full 1/2 ;)

I mean, that's kind of true of most of these pundits, is it not? so what makes Freelund stand out to you?

To me she stands out because she's supposed to be delivering some (mysterious) mathematical analysis based on some (mysterious) model she has, that we are left to assume has some sound basis behind it.

I think she has a lot of education in statistical methods, and that her difficulty in predicting outcomes is a testimony to the complexity of NFL play.

Hmmmmmmm isn't that what most of the various sites and pundits are claiming?  ESPN with total QBR?  PFF with all the stuff they claim goes into their ranking?  538?

She stands out as being a (purported) statistical modeler compared to the endless stream of subjective talking heads on her host NFLN.

 

She stands out separately from the modelers you mention on other outlets in that her results are so very terrible.
