I know this is bound to last like, one season and one season only, but I am loving it.
I keep thinking I see flaws in their tests and their "edges", but I haven't had a problem with the outcomes, after running the 1,000 simulations.

I personally think someone at ESPN needs to get ahold of these guys and hit up a Greatest (Insert Team/Player here) of all time series.

Arrgh keep ESPN away from it. They will ruin it like they ruin everything else. Then they will claim they thought of it.

I enjoy this show. I've seen all the episodes except last weeks (which is still sitting on my dvr.) I really hate all the trash talking between the "experts." If they could find a way to eliminate that I would love the show. Its a much better executed version of that animal fight show that was on a couple of years ago.

I don't know about the Knight v Pirate outcome, I think it should have ended in a draw the knight may have blead out but not before running the pirate through.

I hate the trash talk too... especially when one of them takes it to a level where it no longer looks like just trash talk (especially Apache vs. Gladiator and last night's Yakuza vs. Mafia).

I actually thought the Pirate v Knight was pretty dead on in the final analysis.
Spoiler
Superior technology rulz, and long range efficiency is the biggest factor in the equation.
