Just watched the freakonomics movie. Fascinating stuff, particularly the bit about exposing corruption in Sumo wrestling. Could something like this be done with football? Much more data to go through of course, but surely all that means is it takes a little bit longer. We all 'know' the little teams get shafted so the big teams continue to thrive, but having compelling evidence would surely have to force FIFA, UEFA and the FA's hand wouldn't it?
