    Damn, I did not know about Seymour as a rookie having to fork over 15K for taking the veterans out for one nite. That is brutal. (I'm referring to the link referenced in this article, to Christopher's article on the symposium)

    They combine the scores of a teams rookies to come up with the team winner.

    Pats sent 12 rooks, so I am not impressed.:snob:

    I'm pretty sure it isn't simply the sum, seeing as the Pats won it last year with just 7 rookies. . . .

    From Reiss's article.

    ,

    Good for the Pat rookies, I am just saying they had to be the odds on favorites.

    I doubt it means sum, though. I'm sure it's the average or mean score. Otherwise, what's the point? The NFL can't suck at math that bad, one hopes.

    Agreed. "Combined individual scores" doesn't specify how they were combined (sum and average).

    For winning, they all get flat screen TVs. Hurray, take that other rookies no flat screen TVs for you!

    Combined is not the same as summed. Summing is only one way of combining scores of individuals. Another way is to combine scores is by taking their average, which I'm sure what was done here without knowing more information.

    32 inch HDTVs to 12 players. I wonder if the 7 players last year got 55 inch TVs?

    Kevin O'C also won an IPod for his personal performance on the Ultimate Rookie exam.
    Interesting info about the symposium itself too, and how seriously the NFL takes the attendance, though I kind of agree with Troy Smith about Goodell even though it probably wasn't the wisest thing to say:D :
    Great article Chris, thanks, and good for our boys:rocker:

    The second article about the NFL.com study's pretty interesting too,maybe a thread of it's own

    And here I was thinking that a thread on sums vs. means couldn't get any better. :eat1:

    Not trying to offend you but am I the only one who finds it weird that a Jets fan reads Reiss's blog?

    Yeah, but the Cowboys draft idiots. Smart people intimidate Wade Phillips

    Exactly, backing up the idea that the Patriots draft smart players!

    Actually, not. It since occurrf to me there's a 4:1 between TV "size" and screen area. For example, a 64" TV would have 4 times the screen area of a 32"er. So the correct size might have been more like 40", but I'm too lazy to figure out the exact amount right now.

    Anybody know who sponsors the TV giveaway, is it the NFL, themselves? I wouldn't be suprised that due to the economy they were hoping the jets would win(2 draft picks=2tvs).

    Maybe the Pats cheated by having Darryl Richard answer all

    the questions.

    I've always freely admitted my obsesion with the Jets and there quest to un seat the Pats, visa vi my obsession with the Pats.

    At first I did not like Reiss, but he has grown on me, most of his stuff is short and to the point without a bunch of hyperbole. Reiss is a good read.

    Boy you're lucky, after the original post I was going to put you on my list of people to put itching powder in their shorts, but this post reduces the insufferable mathematical humor quotient of the thread to more tolerable levels. :scream:
