This is tough... my mind is flip flopping back and forth from American Bar food to Irish Pub food. I think the Irish pub entries might have been stronger, but the Americans seem to be moving my stomach needle more... I'm going to have to give this a few days to decide.

Sorry Al, I know I could've sent Ninja over there with them, but I felt that if you'd actually tasted them, you wouldn't vote for them.

Well Gore, so far Erin and Michele are tied with you and me. How long you figure that will last?

I'm sure in reality, they're actually in the lead (I'm sure Chris can confirm this), but I take it as a moral victory.

I just ran the latest polling data through and it shows you losing by a wide margin, but the European Model says you lost before you even posted, no matter what happens with the voting! Actually, this European Model looks pretty good, I think I might just go with it.

Also, the ENIAC has finished tabulating the results of the Forward Entry vs Rear Entry data (I like going retro, even if it means waiting).

There were 42 Throwdowns where I had sufficient data to compare the order entries were made (From 2010 Week 16 through 2011 Week 1). Of these 42 Throwdowns, 5 entries made up front won, and 5 entries that entered at the rear won. So from that perspective, it seems there is no difference.

However, if we throw out the wins as a qualifier, and look for which got the most votes overall, those who entered up front, or those who entered at the rear (sum of all votes from all 42 Throwdowns for these two positions), they are not as equal. In this case, Entering at the Front yielded 438 votes, while Rear Entry received 459 votes.

So, in terms of winning, they seem to be equal. But in terms of scoring, entering at the rear seems to result in 4.7% more votes.

Interesting, so both these positions are equally lucky. What is the average number of entries? If more than 8, suggests that entering up front or from the rear are luckier positions than the others. It seems we've been getting way more than that on average.
