Coach A plays to the strength of his opposition. That's my big takeaway from this data. That could also mean a mix of teams that includes both optimal and suboptimal ones. Knowing who coach A is, just confirms this.

Coach B wins 60% in the Box. He's doing something right. Not playing tournaments doesn't mean much, there are many reasons for this.

Issue is that winning isn't the sole measurement of success in a game like Blood Bowl. I see a lot of coaches that can win more than 50% of their matches, but some don't seem to enjoy the match or even the game sometimes.

that depends. Is coach B an African or European swallow?

2 people arguing on the internet seek the opinions of others on the internet to resolve it.

That'll go well then. Bound to sort it all out pretty quickly with everyone agreeing.

Shall I just cite Hitler and Chuck Norris now?

Nobody gives a helicopter. This is a dumb and pointless debate if there ever was one.

Now we'll see about "bad faith" when the poll closes.

Pucker up, coaches.
