    I forgot to clarify "Kyle Busch will not win a Cup race before the playoffs begin."

    The deadline for the submittal of this year's BOLD PREDICTIONS has come and gone and before the first race of the season has even started, one prediction (by @LouieLouie) has already been proven to be false.

    Thought they would give the pole to McMurray like they gave it to others in the past, since it was his last race before retiring. Oh well. Better luck next year.

    @NASCAR Apologist

    My apologies to the consummate apologist for not responding earlier to your prediction that concerns "average TV viewership."

    Essentially, your prediction was determined to be unacceptable as it is considered to be both vague and, even if more specific, something that's not able to be easily verified, at least not by me.

    I predict that you'll have a much better prediction next year. :cool:

    The ratings for every race compared to the year before's race are posted every week in the TV ratings thread. Since the schedule is exactly the same this year, it is easily verifiable with a little math. I think you should let him in but it's not my game, just a player's opinion.

    I see what you're talking about in the NASCAR - Television Rating Thread but the way I take the prediction . . .
    . . . @NASCAR Apologist is somehow looking to compare "average" 2019 season viewership to "average" 2018 season viewership.

    The math that I'm comfortable doing in verifying predictions typically involves counting a particular driver's race wins as opposed to crunching TV viewership numbers over the course of the season.

    Thanks for the input but I'm sticking with the thought that the prediction is both vague and something that's not able to be easily verified.

    "easily" being the control word. I would like to see him do all the math and post his numbers after each and every race to prove his point.
    In the mean time I am comfortable with your decision.

    I'm ok with his decision too, and he respectfully answered. But since you challenged me to do the math...

    This year's Vegas race got a 3.05 rating according to Showbuzzdaily.com
    Last year's got a 2.89

    The new number (3.05) minus the original number (2.89) = .16

    Divide that by the original number (2.89) to get .055

    Multiply by 100 to get a 5.5% increase

    Took 90 seconds with a calculator, if that.

    And to get the overall increase for the year, add up all the differences and divide by 36...

    That's great, keep going. My method isn't as fast. I write out my requested information then the dog takes it to town and I get the information back when the dog decides to come home. Some times she looses the note when the wolves chase her.
    Glad we all decided to let pjmolo make the decisions.
    Have a fantastic day.

    The math is the easy part; three minutes in Excel and done for the season. To me, the PITA would be digging out and entering the ratings numbers every week.

    That's why I suggested he could post his own spread sheet to verify his prediction
    each and every week.

    I know it's early, but I'm probably going oh-fer on my predictions...
