    I followed this method and got:

    USA - 9 fits
    Furriners - 11 fits

    This is not a sound strategy. Your vote should be based on the percentage of fits you like from each team, not the number of fits. If the number of fits on each team was equal then it wouldn't matter. Your count would still mean a vote for the Furriners.

    I think a better strategy would be a weighted average. 11 medicore fits should not beat out 9 amazing one (not to say that this is the case in this situation), but all fits are not equal.

    I think each voter should have his/her own weights. At least here in 'Merica. [​IMG]

    No, I'm kinda busy calculating weighted averages.
    And, yes, we all have the freedom to make decisions based on faulty logic. [​IMG] God Bless 'Merica. [​IMG]

    It's not faulty logic, it's faulty rationale. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    the more the murikans try and squeeze a win out here, only makes the loss that much more obvious. :(
