AFL, Cricket and NRL need a MoneyBall makeover (Plus, competition winners)

In Moneyball, a financially struggling baseball team turns to advanced science in order to turn around the club’s fortunes. It turns out many EFTM readers fell the same approach could help pretty much every football code in Australia.

To win a copy of the movie on DVD or Blu-ray, we asked you to tell us which sports would benefit from the same approach in Australia.

The results were torn, with both the NRL and cricket klanding about 20 per cent of the vote each, with AFL getting 17 per cent and soccer and Netball each hovering around 11 per cent. The remainder of the vote was made up with votes for sports like golf, athletics, tennis and volleyball.

But statistics be damned – here are the winners!

Cian O’Reilly
Jim Adamopoulos
Brett Hussey

Congrats to all the winners! To all those who missed out, stay tuned for more exciting competitions in the near future.
