Saints #1 in Ultimate Standings

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Take it with a grain of salt, it's ESPN after all. But hey we're #1. Some of the individual ratings make sense, while other ones make me scratch my head. ESPN - Ultimate Team Rankings (the link didn't work)...

Re: Saints #1 in Ultimate Standings

The Mag: Ultimate Standings 2010
Welcome to ESPN The Magazine's eighth annual Ultimate Standings, in which we measure how much MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL franchises give back to the fans in exchange for all the time, money and emotion the fans invest in them.

The Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints catapulted from No. 52 last year to the top spot in 2010, thanks in no small part to their dedication to bringing in quality players who delivered the franchises first championship and the efforts of those players in a community still re-building from Hurricane Katrina.

The eight major categories that make up the Ultimate Standings were created based on feedback from fans about what they want most from their favorite teams (click here for a more detailed account of the method to our madness.) The categories:


Bang For The Buck (BNG): Wins during the past three years (regular season plus postseason) per revenues directly from fans, adjusted for league schedules.

Fan Relations (FRL): Openness and consideration toward fans by players, coaches and management.

Ownership (OWN): Honesty and loyalty to core players and local community.

Affordability (AFF): Price of tickets, parking and concessions.

Stadium Experience (STX): Quality of arena and game-day promotions as well as friendliness of environment.

Players (PLA): Effort on the field and likability off it.

Coaching (CCH): Strength of on-field leadership.

Title Track (TTR): Championships already won or expected in the lifetime of current fans.

Below you will find a sortable table of this year's Ultimate Standings as well as previous results going back to 2003. Subcategories that make up the overall ranking for that category are available for the 2009-10 results. Insiders can click on team names for a more detailed breakdown of the rankings.

Financial analysis by the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center at the University of Oregon (Madeline Breskin, Eric Chylinski, Travis Hanson, Kelsey Philpott, Peter Raschino and Ken Salmon). Fan surveys by Maddock Douglas and NetReflector.
