Read & download Ó The Captain Class: A New Theory of Leadership OneAlpha LionsIdentifying the Worlds Greatest TeamsThis was not the first time I had taken a stab at ranking the worlds greatest sports teams It was however the first time Id attempted this while soberThere is no better faster way to start an argument with another sports fan than to trot out the name of a team that you consider to be unrivaled in its accomplishments Once you go down this road youre in for a long night The only redeeming uality of this line of debate is that therounds you buy the sharper your analysis seems to becomeI had never written any of my own rankings down but I knew that others had So I decided to launch my study by gathering up every such list that had been published anywhere in the world from the page of prestigious newspapers to the most homespun websites to see if they had come to any consensus I found about ninety of themAfter I spread them out on my dining room table and attacked them with a yellow highlighter it was immediately clear that this genre of sports page punditry suffered from some empirical weaknesses Some of the lists didnt bother offering a methodologytheir conclusions were based on the collective opinions of a bunch of guys in the office The ones that did use numbers were often statistically dubiousThe most common procedural error was something known as selection bias a gaffe which has long plagued all kinds of polls surveys and scientific experiments This occurs when researchers base their studies on samples that arent large enough or random enough to offer a representative cross section of the whole The telltale sign was that most of these lists had a suspiciously regional flavor Rankings from England for example were clogged with the names of soccer clubs like Liverpool and Manchester United while those from Down Under went heavy on rugby cricket and Australian rules footballWhat this told me was that these list makers had failed to cast a wide enough net In many cases they hadnt even considered teams from outside their own national bordersAnother problem was that the same gangs of standbys kept showing up over and over In the United States for instance the New York Yankees the Miami Dolphins the s Chicago Bulls and the New England Patriots of the s made nearly every list The only difference was the order in which they were ranked This suggested that my fellow analysts had probably allowed themselves to be prejudiced by the candidates other people had already anointedTo build a proper list I realized I would have to ignore all the others put on blinders to block my own assumptions and start fresh I would have to consider every team from every major sport anywhere in the world through the fullness of historyThe first step was to locate reliable historical records for every professional or international sports league association confederation or annual tournament from Australia to Uruguayand to isolate every team that either had won a major title or trophy or achieved an exceptional winning streak This process which took months to complete yielded a spreadsheet of candidates that ran into the thousandsTo set some parameters for my research and filter this group down to amanageable number I set out to answer three fundamental uestionsuestion What ualifies as a team Most of the rankings on my dining room table neglected to deal with one vital issue What constitutes a team in the first place A sport like ice dancing where two people perform together in front of a panel of judges was often given the same weight as a sport like rugby union where two groups of fifteen athletes compete head to head The members of Olympic boxing teams who enter the ring alone were lumped together with volleyball players who compete side by sideThe dictionary definition of team is about as bare bones as it gets Its defined as any group that works together on a task When it comes to horses or oxen a team starts with two and goes up from there but there is no conventional view of how many humans are reuired Is a group of two people a team or a partnership And do three people make up a team or a trio To settle the matter I decided that a group of athletes can only be considered a team in the fullest sense of the word if it meets the following three criteria A It has five ormembersOne thing we can say with certainty is that the smaller a team theits results depend on individual performances If a team has two members for instance each persons contribution should account for something close to percent of the outcome If one athlete performs spectacularly or chokes miserably theres a strong possibility that they might single handedly determine the resultTo limit my sample to teams where the collective performance of the group will nearly always matterthan the contribution of any one member I decided to eliminate all teams that involve dyads doubles tennis doubles luge Olympic beach volleyball.
