The Franchise first found its feet plainly, as a small group of friends that eat, live, and breathe sports. Growing up in a generation with social media, oversimplified opinions flow freely and abundantly. What strikes us as fascinating is a very simple yet unexplored fact: that all our sports leagues are billion dollar industries. The Franchise hopes to look at the sports that absorb our attention and emotions every day and take note of how results on the playing field tend to be the results of the numbers.

This crossing between sports and the money that finances them is where we decided to set up camp. We want to look at the sports that capture our eye with a slightly different spin, and we hope you will join us. We present the data we find most interesting, but also sometimes the data that we’ve used  to settle arguments amongst ourselves.

At the end of the day, we just hope to bring a new point of view into the conversation: one that is empirically based.  So sit back, grab a drink, and enjoy.
