Why might having a one pager be handy.

  • You might be really into fantasy sports so want to keep information like points given up by position handy.

Lets say you are playing a mate in your favourite fantasy league, having information like points given up by a team to a position tends to be handy. It’s nothing new, in fact fantasy sports is big in the US and a site like rotowire provides this information for fans quickly.

  • You might like constructing your own ladders to like a free kick count ladder.

Maybe you like to debate among your mates, maybe you work for a club and want to know where your team sits every week.

  • You might be a punter so having information like Tony presents over in his matterofstats might inform your betting strategy.

No matter the purpose, information is key. But its more than just having the information available. You can construct a lot of the above but it would be very time consuming and probably a bit overwhelming. But that’s why James Day and I have gotten fitzRoy together so all of these things are relatively quick, easy and can be updated weekly.
