As you can see, not a whole lot of movement outside the Top 12, but some teams definitely did themselves favors by strong performances (even if only 1 bout) at Champs.  But even more importantly, look at how close the teams are once we get past the Top 3.  This lends itself to a great 2015 season with good movement in the rankings.  Also, that will greatly support the data I’m using to suggest a new Divisional system for WFTDA.  With Champs out of the way, that series should be up in a few weeks.  But the next thing for Derby Math will be Part 2 of my “Is Roller Derby Entertaining” series.  I chose to wait until after Champs for this as there are some amazing stats I will be using and Champs gave me exactly what I was hoping for.  I had some great feedback from Part 1 and I really hope you like Part 2.  My guess is that I will do three parts for this and then will begin to put out a three part series on my proposed Divisional system.

In closing for this post, I want to send a special shout out to Bob Noxious and his awesome Brown Paper Tickets blog(http://community.brownpapertickets.com/wp/).  Not only is he a great announcer, but he has some great advice to help with the money problem derby is currently having.  Please check out his blog as he truly is one of the good guys (there are tons of them, but he is definitely one) and he just wants what is best for derby.  No one of us is going to have all the answers to help keep derby going, but together we can keep the discussions going to bring derby all the glory it deserves.
