  • That was indeed a good read. I'm amazed that a sport that has so much more money in it is so far behind. Perfect example being the nutrition side, surely that is a no brainer. Then again maybe it's not a surprise in the insular world of American sport(s).

    It's good to see a sport that has no imbalance in budgets finds a way to see an improvement. It's easier to say marginal gains is a fallacy in a team with a substantially larger budget over rivals but when , as in NFL, the teams are very even. Money can't buy success as readily. To find a team winning by doing things differently proves there must be a truth in the practise.

    One team does it to the limit, the rest have to follow which negates the advantage. The only people who lose are the spectators with a clinical boring controlled approach. People might as well watch autonomous drones.

    Yeah cos having the riders read about nutrition and handwashing and having their own mattresses completely takes the fun out of cycling up and down the Alps....

    What more do you want ? Cyclists v Lions ?

    Are you not entertained enough ?
