Inter Derby

World Wide Derby Domination

Some stats…

Posted by Holy Hooligan on January 10, 2009

A few days ago I put a post on my swedish blog that caused a bunch of comments from skaters that don’t know a word of swedish. The reason? I had put together a list of all european games played. And I also did a very amatureish ranking of all the teams that have played inter league games.

After a while Tear E. Hatchet of BBDD translated it all. It is her translation I post here. I thought you all might enjoy it. Just don’t take the ranking part too serious!

————original post————

European rollerderby hasn’t come as far as it’s American counterpart, which is of course sad. But it also has its advantages. For one it makes it incredibly much easier to overview!

Statistics are always great fun for all sports geeks, so I compiled a list of all the games played in Europe and thus have produced a very lakcing and unscientific European league table. I am only taking interleague matches into consideration, but I am listing the other games as well.

Firstly, a list of all games played by European teams

The games that should contribute to some form of league table are the following:

2008.10.25 Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames 23 London Rollergirls 274
2008.11.22 Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames 81 Stuttgart Valley Rollergirlz 75

Which would produce a table that looks something like this. A win gives two points. The reason for this is that I am keeping the door open for variations inthe results, despite the rules not allowing it. You never know what could happen in the case of aborted games and the like.

Europetable 2008.12.23

Team Games played Points + Points – Pooints difference Games won Games lost Total
Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames 4 305 532 -227 3 1 6
London Rollergirls 2 437 54 +383 2 0 4
Stuttgart Valley Rollergirlz 3 245 233 +12 1 2 2
London Rockin’ Rollers 3 261 280 -19 1 2 2
Glasgow Rollergirls 2 105 254 -149 0 2 0

As we can see this table is hardly exact nor entirely fair. Most of us would probably rate the London Rollergirls as the clear number ones. But if you use a system like this, the Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames have actually won more games. To make a system like this fair, significantly more games have to be played. And even then it will not work because it is adapted to league play. But at least it will give a bit of an indication.

Some form of proper ranking or at least as close as we can get to it will hopefully materialise this summer, as the LRG have invited all European leagues for a tournament in London between July 18-19. With any luck we might even see Stockholm Rollerderby live by then!
