I agree. This is the reason why I added the chance to mail me a
private prediction in the Tight race prediction contest:
Don't know if it's enough, though. Maybe a sophisticated prediction
would have been a better choice?
Also, Mark suggested to just predict how a given bunch of players'
total rating would compare to existing teams' total rating. Maybe I
should have done it that way: we wouldn't know how many tackles per
match would Materazzi win, but there would have been no reason to
factor in Fulham's board etc. (and other teams' market: in this
virtual 2009-10 season, Chelsea bought Cassano ad Iaquinta, United Di
Natale and Giuseppe Rossi... English clubs seem to think that Italian
strikers have a good quality/price ratio!).

Do you have any connections with the RSSSF folk? I wonder if they'd
allow you to archive some of these contest results?

It would be great. My games often don't follow strict rules, though,
so I don't know if they are acceptable for RSSSF standards.
