  1. While fairly daunting to those of us unfamiliar with detailed statistical analysis, it seems you’ve done a hell of a job here.
    My major ‘bias’ has been based on the assumption that Brady is both stupid and clever. ‘Stupid’ to put so much in jeopardy by involving underpaid functionaries in a scheme that produced an insignificant advantage, And ‘clever’ because, if Tom is indeed a ‘cheater’, he’s gone through at least 2 decades in the limelight with a spotless record…. What’s the probability of that ???

  2. What is Back Picks?

    I like your subtitle: Cognition in Sports. Do you plan more articles that investigate the science, psychology, sociology or legal framework of sports?

    • Hi Tom — I’ve previously written over 100 articles, 95% of which were on basketball. I find basketball to be the sport that intersects most heavily with our biases and cognitive tools and opinions/analysis. Unfortunately, none are currently up on this site because the site was hacked a few years ago and I have not taken the time to re-upload them (the graphics and interactive tables are tricky).

      I will be publishing an e-book later this year mainly around basketball, and how our cognition shapes our perception of sports.

      PS A back pick is a type of screen in basketball.
